What to know about the Grizzlies
The Grizzlies enter on a five-game losing streak, including falling by 40 points to the Celtics on Sunday. The Grizzlies lost those five contests by an average of 18.4 points, but they had a three-game winning streak before the losing skid despite being decimated by injuries this season. Even without some of their top options such as Ja Morant (shoulder), Desmond Bane (ankle) and Marcus Smart (finger), the Grizzlies are 10-6 ATS over their last 16 contests, including 6-2 over their last eight.
Memphis is 15-12 ATS on the road and 9-6 ATS against the Eastern Conference. But the Grizzlies could be without another key piece on Tuesday with Jaren Jackson Jr. (hip) listed as doubtful. Jackson was the only healthy player averaging more than 10.5 points per game this season, posting 22.1 ppg this year. Santi Aldama (tailbone) is questionable which could leave Luke Kennard as the team’s leading scorer that’s played at least 10 games with averaging 10.4 ppg as a top option. Scotty Pippen Jr. is averaging 10.5 points over six games for the Grizzlies and could find himself in a crucial role on Tuesday. See which team to pick here.
What to know about the Knicks
The Knicks had their nine-game winning streak snapped in a 113-105 loss to the Lakers on Saturday. New York has been playing some of the best basketball in the NBA in recent weeks, led by the emergence of Jalen Brunson into becoming one of the best guards in the league. The 27-year-old is averaging 27.3 ppg this season, including 32.6 ppg over his last 11 contests. Brunson has scored at least 30 points in nine of those contests and is averaging 6.5 assists on the year.
The Knicks will be without OG Anunoby (elbow) for the fifth straight game and remain without Julius Randle (shoulder). They’ve still continued their winning ways without these key pieces, in large part due to one of the best defensive efforts in the NBA. The Knicks rank second in scoring defense (109.3 ppg) and have relied on players such as Donte DiVincenzo and Josh Hart to play key offensive roles lately. DiVincenzo has scored at least 20 points in four straight games, averaging 26.8 ppg over that stretch, and Hart has at least 10 rebounds in four straight games. The Knicks are tied for third in rebounds per game and tied for the league lead in second-chance points this season. See which team to pick here.
