NBA Betting Prediction: Memphis Grizzlies Look To Continue Home Success Against Indiana Pacers
The Memphis Grizzlies are currently sitting at 26-13 with a very successful home record of 12-6. In their recent match-up on the road against the Chicago Bulls the Grizzlies we’re victorious 85-82 in a great over-time win. Memphis shot 40.5 percent from the floor but did not shoot well behind the arc going 0-5, and only 60% from the foul line at 17-28.
Marc Gasol led Memphis in scoring against the Bulls with 19 total points on 70% shooting from the floor to go with his 8 rebounds, 1 assists, 1 steal, and a blocked shot. Forward Rudy Gay chipped in with 16 points but got it the hard way going just 6 for 19 from the floor. The bench did not contribute much, but Darrell Arthur did shoot efficiently going 4-7 from the pine.
The Indiana Pacers are also coming off a victory of their own beating the Houston Rockets 105-95 at home. Indiana shot 46 percent from the floor in that match up, but where they really shined was from three-point ranged going a ridiculous 11 for 19, and added a 82% shooting from the foul line.
Pacers Paul George was just about unstoppable scoring 31 points on the contest shooting 11 for 19 from the floor, 7 for 10 from downtown to go with 6 rebounds, 3 assists, an impressive 5 steals, and a blocked shot. David West was second in scoring with 20 points on 8 for 18 shooting and had team highs in rebounds 11, and assists with 7. The bench did not contribute much, but Darrell Arthur did shoot efficiently going 4-7 from the pine.
The Memphis Grizzlies are really good at home with their 12-6 record compared to the Indiana Pacers difficulty of traveling this season with their 9-13 record. Memphis is among the lead leading teams in causing turnovers, and among the lowest in turnover themselves. They will create all sorts of difficulties for the Pacers and should win this match-up. However the Pacers are a dangerous team, and being spotted 6 and a half points I really like them with the points in this contest.
