Preview

Memphis Grizzlies will be meeting Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday in Memphis, This will be the secone game in the first round in this matchup as the first playoffs game ended in a 130-117 Minnesota win in Memphis as 7 points underdogs. Edwards had 36 points and Towns had 29 points in this game to give Minnesota the early 1-0 lead away.

Minnesota Timberwolves had a great game on Saturday to get the early lead 1-0 in Memphis, Minnesota Timberwolves had a 50% shooting from the field and 39% from the 3 Pointers and out rebounded Memphis 46-35 in that game, A.Edwards had a great night with 36 points and Karl Anthony Towns had a double double with 29 points and  13 rebounds. This game should be more difficult for Minnesota as the Grizzlies will be pissed off from the last game and will give their best to level the score up.

Memphis Grizzlies didn't have a good game at all at least not what was expected from them as the 2nd seed. Memphis had 45% shooting from the field and a poor 25% shooting from the 3 Pointers in this game as Ja Morant was their best player with 32 points, 4 rebounds and 8 Assists. Memphis have a great 30-12 record at home this season and they will try to make this series 1-1 in this game as 6.5 points favourite.

The O/U is 6-4 to the Over with Minnesota averaging 118.2 and Memphis averaging 117.8 points a game.

Prediction

First game's result was definitely a surprise as the Timberwolves win by 13 points in Memphis as 7 points underdogs. This game should be different than the last one as Memphis can't afford having 0-2 record especially that they are playing at home as the 2nd seed. I expect Ja Morant to go off here and get an important win for Memphis Grizzlies at home so give me the Grizzlies to win and cover at home.

Pick: Memphis Grizzlies -6.5 (-110)
