Houston Trying To Get Anything Going

The Houston Rockets are currently the 15th seed in the Western Conference, which ranks them last. They have the worst record in the NBA this season and just haven’t been able to get much going on either side of the ball. They are now on a 12-game losing streak, but they have been able to play a few opponents tight. In some of their most recent losses, they lost to the Utah Jazz by 5 in over time, the Los Angeles Clippers by one, and the Phoenix Suns by only three points.

In Houston’s last game against the Denver Nuggets, they lost 116-101. In that game, Christian Wood was able to add 22 points with 10 rebounds, while Jalen green was right behind him with 18 points and seven assists.

On the season, Houston has the worst net rating in the NBA, the 27th ranked offensive rating, and the worst-ranked defense in the NBA.

Memphis Looking To Get Back On Track

The Memphis Grizzlies have been one of the better teams in the NBA this season. They are currently 43-21 and hold the third seed in the Western Conference. If Memphis can win this game and the Warriors lose on Saturday night against the Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis will move into the second seed of the Western Conference.

In the Grizzlies’ most recent game against the Boston Celtics, they lost a tough one at 120-107. Ja Morant was able to do his usual thing as he finished with 38 points and seven assists. Jaren Jackson was sensational as well as he finished with 20 points and seven rebounds.

On the season, Memphis currently has the sixth rated net rating, fourth rated offensive rating, and the ninth rated defensive rating.

Free NBA Picks — Grizzlies vs Rockets

For this game, I’m going to go with Memphis to win by 11+. I think they do win this one pretty easily. They are coming off a loss and everybody knows that when this team is not performing the way that they expect themselves to, they come out with a different type of fire and passion in their next game. Sprinkling some money on the Rockets spread might not be the worst idea considering that they have been able to keep a few games close lately, but with a spread that big, I’m trying to read this line and think that Memphis might be able to walk away with an extremely easy victory.

I’m also going to go with Ja Morant to score 20-plus points and Jaren Jackson to have one plus three.
