Two squads sitting outside the playoff places of the West are clashing tonight, when the Memphis Grizzlies (29-43), who have won only once in their last 4 games, are hosting the Minnesota Timberwolves (32-40), who are looking to end their current losing streak.
Date/Time: 03-23-2019, 20:00 EDT
Spread: Memphis Grizzlies +2.5
Memphis Grizzlies have a 29-43 record (34-38 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third to last place of the West. They have lost three of their last four matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Magic with a 119-123 score in overtime, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Mike Conley with 20.9 ppg, adding a team high 6.5 dimes per game. He is followed by Jonas Valanciunas with 19.4 ppg and a team high 9.6 boards per game.
Minnesota Timberwolves have a 32-40 record (34-38 against the spread) so far this season are currently sit in the 10th place of the West. They have five consecutive losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Hornets with a 106-113 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Karl-Anthony Towns with 24.6 ppg, adding a team high 12.4 boards per game. He is followed by Derrick Rose with 18 ppg and 4.3 dimes per game.
Grizzlies lead the Timberwolves 2-1 wins so far this season, having won the previous home game by 2 points. Grizzlies have a 19-17 home record, while the Wolves are 9-29 on the road. Wolves are better offensively, scoring 112.4 ppg to Grizzlies’ 102.7, while Grizzlies are better defensively, allowing 105.1 ppg to Wolves’ 113.6. Wolves have better percentages both in field goals (45.5% to 45.2%) and in 3-pointers (34.7% to 33.9%). They are also better in boards grabbed (45.3 to 41.2), in dimes made (24.5 to 23.8) and in turnovers committed (12.6 to 13.3). Vegas odds give the Wolves a -2.5 spread but don’t expect them to beat the odds and pick the hosts in this one.
