Memphis Grizzlies (10-10, +155) is an underdog without Morant, which is pretty reasonable once you take a look at his stats this year. The sky-flying guard recorded 24.1 points each night with 6.8 assists and 5.6 boards, generating a 25.36 PER rating, the eighth-highest in the NBA.
Head to Head Games
The two sides played a few days ago when the Raptors were on a road trip. The Canadian team defeated Memphis, 126-113, with Gary Trent Jr. dropping 26, Fred VanVleet had 23, while Barnes, Siakam, and Achiuwa all had 17. Morant ended the night with 23, Bane and Brooks both scored 20 each for the Grizzlies.
This one should be an easy task for the Raptors, one of few this year. The guests are still in shock for losing Morant, and we don’t believe that they can adjust to playing without the best player and the top star in such a short period of time. Our pick would be the hosts, and we would even go with them, covering a -4.5-point spread.
