Memphis Grizzlies at Toronto Raptors (-4, 219.5)
In the first game without Ja Morant the Grizzlies took care of business in a win over the Kings on Sunday. Their offense, led by Dillon Brooks, put up 1.325 points per possession and dropped 76 points in the first half of a blowout victory. Tonight, they will get to exact revenge against an equally poor defensive opponent in Toronto. The Raptors come into tonight 26th in defensive efficiency, allowing 112.4 points per 100 possessions in non-garbage time minutes. Opponents are shooting 68.0% at the rim against them this season while generating wide-open looks from 3-point range on 21.7% of their attempts, the third-highest rate in the league. To make matters worse, OG Anunoby is not close to returning from a hip injury, Khem Birch is out today with a knee injury and Gary Trent Jr. is questionable. I have my questions about Memphis with Ja Morant, so without him I consider them a very flawed team. In the minutes without him on the floor they are outscored by 4.7 points per 100 possessions and their offense puts up 107.6 points. However, in a situation like this, where the line is as high as Raptors -6 it is hard to pass on the underdog against such a flawed opponent and inflated line.
Play: Grizzlies (+ 5.5)
