*3 Star NBA Early Bird Special* The Memphis Grizzlies have a lot to play for right now. There are a bunch of teams in the bubble right now that really have no reason to care much whether they win or lose. Memphis is not one of those teams.
The Toronto Raptors defense has been number one in the NBA in their last four games. Toronto's help side defense and awareness on defense is unmatched in the NBA. I would think they would be up for this one since they were torched by the Celtics in their last game.
Memphis is third in the NBA in defensive efficiency in their last four games The Grizzlies have some key pieces missing on offense too, so they have been inefficient offensively.
The intensity should be high enough here and both teams will work hard on defense.
Take the under.
