The Nets enter this contest after dropping their previous two games to Milwaukee and Washington. Tonight will mark the third game of their eight-game road trip. If Brooklyn still hopes to make the playoffs this year, they must be able to get a few wins during this tough road trip.
Last game against the Bucks, the Nets were led by point guard Jarrett Jack. Jack dropped 26 points and handed out eight assists after only shooting 3-of-12 in the previous game against Washington.
Brooklyn led by almost 20 points in last night’s game, but were unable to close it out after another rough third quarter. In the last three games, the Nets are being outscored by about 11 points in the third quarter, which brings the overall total to 34.
Arguably the most effective player for Brooklyn, Deron Williams, has been suffering from an illness over the last four games which has greatly effected his play.
Williams was 0-for-5 last game and is shooting 6-for-34 over the last four games.
The Grizzlies are 9-1 in the last ten games and are coming off a very impressive win on Sunday against the league-leader in wins, the Atlanta Hawks. Memphis has been great at home this year with a record of 22-5. The reason for their dominance this season has been defense and rebounding. In their win on Sunday, they out rebounded the Hawks 55-37.
Point guard Mike Conley has been on fire lately. Last game he scored 21 points and dished out six assists. In the past four games he is shooting 54.9% and has been exceptional on defense. The entire Grizzlies starting line-up has been great, especially over the last 15 games where they have gone 13-2.
The front court of the Grizzlies, Gasol and Randolph, is dominating on the glass.
Power forward Zach Randolph is averaging 18.3 points per game and 13.3 rebounds over the last 15 games. In the win over Atlanta on Sunday, Gasol scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to make it double-double’s for both of the big men.

NBA Gambling Prediction
The struggles will continue for the Nets and despite the big spread of 12.5, expect the Grizzlies to cover it. Garnett and Plumlee are going to have their hands full with Randolph and Gasol. It looks like Deron Williams will not be able to play, or if he does he won’t be his normal-self.
