The Memphis Grizzlies are coming off an impressive win over the Western Conference’s fourth-best team: the Portland Trail Blazers.

[dfads params=’groups=63742&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

On Sunday night, Memphis traveled to the Pacific Northwest. Memphis defeated Portland 98-92, holding one of the NBA’s best offenses to a score of more than 10 points below its season average.

Against the Clippers, the goal will be the same. The Grizzlies will look to contain an offense that is second this season in terms of points per game, as L.A. is posting 107.3 points per contest at this point in the process.

Memphis is averaging 100.6 points per game, which is as middle-of-the-pack as it comes. That number is only good enough for 14th in the Association.

Defensively, this team is elite. The Grizzlies are giving up just 95.7 points per game, which is the best mark in the entire NBA at this point in the process.


Statistically, the Clippers couldn’t be much further from the Grizzlies. For starters, this team has struggled defensively this season.

On the year, L.A. is giving up 100.9 point per game. That number puts them at 22nd in the NBA, but their offense has more than made up the difference so far.

Through Feb. 22, the Clippers are scoring 107.3 points per game. That puts them at second in the Association in terms of points scored per game, and it’s the main reason they’re in the hunt for a top seed when the playoffs roll around a few short months from now.

NBA Handicapping Trends:

  • Under is 12-3-1 in Memphis’ last 16 overall
  • Over is 6-2 in LAC last 8 vs. NBA Southwest
  • Memphis is 8-1 in last 9 meetings ATS

4* NBA Prediction: Memphis +4

The Memphis Grizzlies are too good defensively to bet against at this point in the process. The Clippers are an elite offensive team, but Memphis just shut down a top-10 team in terms of points per game in the Portland Trail Blazers.

The catch? Portland was down LaMarcus Aldridge.

That said, this Grizzlies squad is ready to take over the Western Conference. They’re tough to go against right now; especially if their defense is going to do to the Clippers what they just did against the conference’s fourth-best team.
