Memphis Grizzlies vs Dallas Mavericks prediction

The Dallas Mavericks are as healthy as they've been in recent memory, and they're coming off three comfortable wins and covers. The Memphis Grizzlies just got news that Ja Morant is out for the season and that could be a crushing blow to the locker room which could lead to some rough efforts. The Grizzlies were gaining ground and chipping away in the standings, and now they lost their star for the rest of the way. Wouldn't be shocked if the Mavs open this game up painlessly. Give me the Mavericks.
