Grizzlies vs Pelicans
GRIZZLIES VS PELICANS
The Grizzlies and the Pelicans face off in the bubble for a battle for the 8th seed in the Western Conference. The Grizzlies currently hold the 8th seed in the Western Conference by 2.5 games, while the Pelicans are currently behind 4 games for the 8th seed. The Grizzlies are coming off a tough 2 point loss to the Spurs, so expect them to come into this game playing tough to clinch the 8th seed and their first victory in the bubble. A notable stat is that the Grizzlies are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing with 0 days rest. The Clippers demoralized the Pelicans in their last game, and I believe this will have a negative effect on their momentum coming into this game while in the bubble. I'm going with the Grizzlies this game to cover the spread because this match up is shaping up to be a great battle, and I believe it will come down to the final possession.
