Memphis at Utah
Memphis is one of those weak teams in NBA this season . They changed their coach and gave the impression that everything it s back to normal … but looks like nothing it s normal for them .
The Grizzlies (10-32) lost their 10th in a row on the road Monday, 115-98 at Denver. Pau Gasol, the subject of recent trade rumors, led Memphis with 23 points and 17 rebounds.
Grizzlies second-leading scorer Mike Miller, averaging 17.2 points, was held to five points on 2-of-11 shooting.
Miller also committed five of Memphis’ 20 turnovers. The team is averaging 21.0 turnovers over the last five games. I wonder if it s possible to see a great show from Miller ( who scored this season 9 3ptointers in a game …) . The answear is NO. Memphis looks very lost and without confidence. The last game against Den showed that.
Utah (28-14) are on their normal grid … last 4 games won , and very possible today will be the 5th in a row. Okur scored a career-high 38 points in a 114-111 loss at Washington on Jan. 15. In four games since then, including road wins at Detroit, Toronto and Chicago, the Jazz center is averaging 24.5 points per game.
Utah s last 4 games were under 220 . They had over games only against big scoring teams like WAS , MIA and Seatlle in OT.
At the end , i don t see Mem scoring over 100-105 , and this will lead to my pick for today :
under 220,5 @ 1,93 played at Canbet
