Landlocked in the toughest NBA division (the reigning champion Spurs are over .600 and in fourth), the Grizzlies face an uphill battle to get in the postseason. As we go to press, they’re 16/1 to win the NBA Championship.
Memphis has qualified for the playoffs in four consecutive seasons, and at 26-11, the Grizzlies are serious threats once again. The strong trio of Jeff Green, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol make this team stronger than ever. Green is averaging near 17 points per game and could be the boost the franchise needs. Although deadly on a game-to-game basis, Memphis falls short at 18-19 against the spread (ATS).
After years of consistency, the Grizzlies are ready to take their game to the next level. Considering Gasol is heading into free agency, scooping up Green couldn’t have come at a better time.
