Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies, despite their struggles this season, have shown flashes of brilliance, especially at home. With Desmond Bane leading the charge, they'll look to capitalize on their home-court advantage and put up a strong defensive effort against the Clippers.

Prediction

Considering the defensive prowess of both teams and the Clippers' ability to control the pace of the game, we predict that the under of 223.5 points is the pick for this matchup. Both teams prioritize defense, which could result in a tightly contested game with fewer scoring opportunities.

The Clippers' strong defensive presence, coupled with the Grizzlies' resilience at home, suggests that points may be harder to come by in this matchup. With both teams likely to focus on limiting their opponent's scoring chances, the under appears to be a favorable option.

Therefore, our prediction leans towards the under of 223.5 points for this game between the Clippers and the Grizzlies.

Pick: Under 223.5
