Team Statistics

Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cavaliers, led by Donovan Mitchell, have displayed impressive performances with a 29-16 record. Mitchell's scoring prowess, coupled with the team's solid defensive efforts, positions them as one of the top teams in the league. With key players healthy, the Cavaliers aim to continue their winning streak.

Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies, currently struggling with an 18-29 record, face a tough challenge against the Cavaliers. Despite individual efforts, the Grizzlies rank in the bottom of the league in offensive efficiency, making it difficult for them to compete against stronger opponents.

As of the latest injury report, the Cavaliers have no injured players. On the Grizzlies' side, Ziaire Williams is listed as out with an expected return date of February 2, while Luke Kennard, Derrick Rose, and John Konchar are game-time decisions with an expected return date of February 1.

Recent Performances

Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cavaliers recently secured a victory against the Los Angeles Clippers, showcasing their ability to perform well even in back-to-back games. With a solid record in their recent outings, the Cavaliers aim to continue their success against the Grizzlies.

Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies faced a tough loss against the Sacramento Kings, continuing their struggle to find consistency. Their offensive challenges make it difficult for them to compete at a high level, especially against defensively strong teams like the Cavaliers.

 

Prediction

Considering the Cavaliers' better team status and the Grizzlies' offensive struggles, the under of 219.5 points is the pick for this game. The Cavaliers, despite being on back-to-back games and having traveled to Memphis, possess the defensive strength to limit the Grizzlies' scoring opportunities. The Grizzlies' low offensive efficiency further supports the likelihood of a lower-scoring game.

Pick: Under 219.5
