NBA: Grizzlies (+1.5) Vs Warriors $
Klay Thompson made his return to the NBA on Sunday in Cleveland after two and a half years sidelined with injuries. It was an emotional and successful night for Klay and the Warriors as they beat the Cavs 96-82. Klay knocked down 17 points in just 20 minutes of play. Draymond Green missed most of that game and is also out for tonight’s matchup. I expect Klay will see a few more minutes tonight as he regains his starter’s legs.
As good as all the is for the the already impressive Warriors lineup, I have to pick against them tonight.
The Memphis Grizzlies are playing better than any other team in the NBA right now. As good as Steph Curry is, I would be hard pressed to take him in a lottery over Morant right now. Ja is playing out of his mind and he may emerge as a leading candidate for MVP this season. The two handed block he had against the Lakers the other night is being called by some the best block in the history of the NBA and it even had LeBron on his feet cheering.
The Grizzlies have now won 9 games in a row including two against the Lakers and two impressive wins over the Suns and Nets. Now the linemakers is offering free points for this team at home? Even if their opponents tonight are the highly talented Warriors, I am going to take that offer.
After another 2-0 day yesterday, my season picks are now 24-13 (65%) for the season. Be sure to be following my Daily Picks page regularly for all my Free NBA Picks and game analysis.
