Grizzlies vs. Knicks Pick

NBA Predictions: Will host Knicks tame Grizzlies? 12/6/17

Are the Memphis Grizzlies going to be able to hang with the host New York Knicks tonight? Tip-off is at 7:30PM ET.

According to oddsmakers at, the Knicks are listed as a 3-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under sits at 197 points.

Memphis comes in with a 8-15 overall record and 8-14-1 ATS after a 95-92 home win over the Timberwolves snapped an 11-game losing skid. New York is 11-12 overall and 13-10 ATS following a 115-97 loss at the Pacers, its fifth defeat in six games. The two meetings last season were split 1-1 straight up and 1-1 ATS. The over-under also went 1-1.

The Grizzlies were paced by Marc Gasol with 21 points, seven rebounds and five assists in the victory over Minnesota. Tyreke Evans tallied 16 points, nine assists, five rebounds and three blocked shots. JaMychal Green contributed with 14 points, nine rebounds and two assists. Memphis held the Timberwolves to 4-of-17 shooting from 3-point range.

New York didn't stand a chance at Indiana without the injured Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr. in the lineup. Porzingis is listed as questionable for tonight's game. Willy Hernangomez tallied 14 points, 10 rebounds and three assists in 17 minutes off the bench to lead the way. Michael Beasley had 13 points and three boards. Doug McDermott added 12 points and two rebounds off the bench. The Knicks trailed 66-40 at halftime.

Memphis is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings. The over is 13-6 in the last 19 meetings.

Bet on Grizzlies vs. Knicks

Both teams have injuries that severely downgrade their chances, with Mike Conley Jr. still out with a sore Achilles for the Grizzlies and the aforementioned Knicks missing the last game or multiple games in Porzingis' case. If Porzingis returns tonight, this might be a good spot to target the Knicks. But if he doesn't play as expected, side with the Grizzlies. Gasol can take advantage of defensive deficiencies Enes Kanter has in the interior, while Evans is always capable of a big night. .
