The Memphis Grizzlies are favored by two in this one and rightfully so. It should honestly probably be a bit more, but the Grizz do tend to play the Grit-and-Grind style that is low scoring and sometimes comes down to one or two plays.
I see them going over against the immature Sacramento Kings who are reeling lately and DeMarcus Cosins “no more excuses” talk sounds like a whole lot of hot air if you ask me. Don’t get me wrong he is playing well, but to win as a team you need more than one dependable player.
The Grizzlies have won their last five games against Sacramento and it will not change in this one; the game tips off at 6 PM EST and tickets are still available. The Griz just picked up their first road win, which is another reason I have confidence that they will carry some momentum going forward. Look for Zach Randolph to have another double-double in this one giving him six total for the year.
“Everybody knows that we go as Zach goes. That’s our horse, him and Marc. And we need them to continue that throughout the year,” guard Tony Allen said to the AP. “Everybody came here with their antennas up, and everybody just wanted to get this win more than the other team. And it showed. We played hard for 48 minutes.”
That is why the Kings will fall, because they have yet to put forth a team effort playing hard for all four periods.
