The Breakdown:

The season series for these two teams has been a nail-biter, competing in two games of which the Nuggets came out 2-0. That being said, both games decided by a total of three points, with one going into double overtime. There are few signs this one will go any different, especially considering the Grizzlies are close to full strength.

If history repeats itself, this game is a virtual toss-up so where could the Nuggets find the deciding factor? On the season the Nuggets have major advantages in rebounding, FG%, and 3pt%. However, in both previous games, as well as in-season averages, the Memphis Grizzlies have been exceptional at limiting turnovers while forcing the Nuggets to be uncharacteristically careless on their end. This will likely be the deciding factor as to whether or not the Nuggets can cover the spread.

Happy betting, folks!
