INJURY TO WATCH
Memphis is finally getting healthier as point guard Andrew Harrison (wrist) is the only questionable player tonight. As you know, point guard Mike Conley Jr. (Achilles) is out for the season. For Brooklyn, shooting guard Allen Crabbe (illnes) is probable. Power forward Dante Cunningham (brain injury) is out.
The Grizzlies actually looked like a formidable basketball team last team with most of their roster back in action, ending a 19-game losing streak with a 101-94 home win over the Nuggets. Brooklyn won the first meeting this season by a count of 98-88 in Memphis, but I think this spread is a bit too high considering the Grizzlies are healthy now. The Nets are young and prone to inconsistency, so I could see them laying a dud here.
