Denver Nuggets vs Memphis Grizzlies Analysis

The Denver Nuggets are clearly the best Western Conference team this season. They currently stand at 42-18 overall, and trail the Grizzlies by 6 games. They have been healthy and have Nikola Jokic, the two-time NBA MVP. Jokic did Jokic things in Thursday’s Nuggets win over Cleveland 115-109. He scored 24 points, had 18 rebounds and 13 assists. He averages 24.7 points, 11.6 rebound, and 10.3 assists per game this season. He is receiving help. Michael Porter scored 25 points in the victory over the Cavs. Jamal Murray is back to his best and is averaging 20.1 and 5.9 assists each game. They rank 6th in terms of points scored per game, and 13th in terms of allowed points. Aaron Gordon is doubtful for Saturday’s match.

The Nuggets are currently second in the Western Conference with 35-23, but they are a distant second to the Nuggets who have a six game advantage. They have a number of teams including the Suns revamped, who are also breathing down their necks. Truth be told, the Memphis Grizzlies are not great. They lost 10 of 14 games, and lost again Thursday to the Philadelphia 76ers 110-105. This game was marred by some chippiness involving, you guess it, Dillon Brooks, who got into it with James Harden. Harden was the winner as he scored 31 points while dishing out 7 assists. Ja Morant was a disappointment for the Grizzlies, scoring just 15 points. This is 12 less than his season average. Desmond Bane was the Grizzlies’ leader with 25 points, 8 rebounds, and Jaren Jackson contributed 18 points and 9 rebounds along with 4 blocked shots.

Denver Nuggets vs Memphis Grizzlies Analysis Free Pick

The Grizzlies are not playing well, and I believe we begin to see them slide down the Western Conference standings. Not only have they not been playing well but also, they didn’t do anything at the trade deadline to get better. This is in contrast to most of their West rivals, including the Nuggets who brought in veteran Reggie Jackson as a guard depth. Jokic is the key to Denver, but so are other players around him. Best NBA pick online was Denver to cover the spread while Memphis will drop this game.

Free Pick: Denver Nuggets -1 (+102)
