The Spurs thin lineup provides targets for the second day in a row. This game should be a low scoring affair against the Grizzlies but still should be targeted. Dejounte Murray was pressed into more minutes in his new starting role and asked to create more offense last night and stepped up. We will take him again in a lesser matchup tonight. Pau Gasol is stepping into potentially season high usage and should be relied heavily squaring off against his brother tonight. And finally Davis Bertans should have ample minutes and shots to beat value tonight.
Jimmy Butler’s injury has meant lots of looks for Andrew Wiggins, and we will bet on that continuing with Butler doubtful. Nemanja Bjelica has drawn the last two starts at forward and should continue to do that and beat value again tonight.
Jerian Grant will continue to fill in for Kris Dunn in Chicago’s point guard friendly offense. The 76ers won’t have a guard accustomed to defending point guards available to them tonight and Grant could exploit it as a result.
And finally, we’re paying up for Blake Griffin and Victor Oladipo. Oladipo has one of the guard-friendliest matchups in the league at home against the Suns and Griffin may present matchup issues to Boston’s front line. The Clippers star has been very reliable of late due to their thin rotations forcing him to be more aggressive.
