The Grizzlies face off against the Raptors, the defending champions, in this Monday matchup. The Raptors are locked in for the 2nd seed in the playoffs, while the Grizzlies are hanging on for dear life of the 8th seed for the West. I anticipate the Raptors limiting their starters minutes as the post season comes closer. I believe they have no reason to compete after locking the 2nd seed. The Grizzlies will likely have to fight off the 9th seed in a play-in series,best of 3 (9th seed must win 2 straight), where the winner will enter the playoffs as the 8 seed. A loss for the Grizzlies could put them in danger for the post season, and with Jarren Jackson Jr. out, they are the clear underdogs. I think the Raptors don't need a win for this game, so that could lead to starters getting rest before the post season. The Grizzlies desperately need a win to maintain the 8th seed and be in better position if they have to face a team like the Trail Blazers for a play-in series. Because of this, I'm rocking with the Grizzlies to cover the spread, even without Jarren Jackson Jr.
