Brooklyn Nets vs Memphis Grizzlies prediction

Backing the Brooklyn Nets in any sort of favorite role doesn't seem ideal, but this is a game they should win given that they have actual NBA players on the court. The Memphis Grizzlies have been competitive, but they're still on the end of the wrong side in most of these games and are fielding a roster of mostly G League and two-way players. Also, the Nets still have a shot at sneaking into the play-in tournament, and these are games they need to take advantage of to make that possible. Near pick em spot, I have to lean toward the Nets.
