Memphis Grizzlies 

The 13-14 Memphis Grizzlies have had an underwhelming campaign, with several of their games getting postponed due to the league's COVID-19 protocols. The Memphis Grizzlies have dropped consecutive games and trail Golden State by 1.5 games for eighth place in the Western Conference standings. On Monday, Memphis fell behind by 13 points after one quarter and could never recover during a 102-92 road loss against Dallas. The Grizzlies (13-14) missed 25 of their 31 three-point attempts and shot just 39 percent overall.

 

Los Angeles Clippers

The LA Clippers have made a sizzling 23-10 start on the season, occupying second place in their conference standings. The Clippers (23-10) have won 11 of their first 15 road games and trail Utah by three games for the top spot in the Western Conference standings. On Tuesday, Los Angeles shot 57 percent from the field en route to a 135-116 home victory versus Washington. The Clippers shot a healthy 57 percent from the field and 19 of 38 from the 3-point line

 

Prediction

The Memphis Grizzlies' underwhelming and misfiring lineup is easily outmatched by that of the LA Clippers. The Clippers, who have the fifth-best defense in the league, are the clear favorites to win this game.

 

Handicap Pick: Los Angeles Clippers -7.5
