Bet Tonight’s Grizzlies vs. Mavericks Game

The Mavericks are red-hot entering tonight, winning five straight games after their playoff hopes looked bleak a week ago. Before Deron Williams went out with an injury the Mavs were 7-16 while allowing 115 points per game. But since JJ Barea entered the starting lineup, Dallas’ defense has improved immensely and so has the team’s playoff hopes.

As for the Grizzlies, they remain banged up. Jordan Adams, Mike Conley, Marc Gasol and Brandan Wright are all out, but the team did snap a six-game losing streak with a 108-92 win over Chicago in its last game. Zach Randolph needs 83 points to pass Latrell Sprewell for 94th overall in scoring all-time in the NBA.

This figures to be an ugly game, which is one of the reasons why the total is so low. The under is 5-2-1 in the Grizzlies’ last eight games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous contest and is a perfect 7-0 in the Mavs’ last seven games following a win.
