Denver Nuggets vs Memphis Grizzlies Preview

Ja Morant had 28 points - 61 in a two-game series - while Jonas Valanciunas (concussion protocol) added 22 on his return, as Memphis reeled off successive victories the Portland Trail Blazers with a 120-113 win overnight.

The morning headlines focused on Damian Lillard's comments after the perennial All-Star publicly took the blame for their loss and said he needed to be better. The star guard shot 8-of-27 from the field but wasn't the only inefficient scorer for Terry Stotts despite a rough box score for all concerned. 

Kyle Anderson had 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting for Memphis, with all but one starter into double figures - SG Grayson Allen was scoreless from three-point range and struggled. It didn't matter, as they held off a spirited fourth-quarter comeback to prevail. 

Up next? The seventh and final road game of their existing stint away from home in Denver, against a determined Nuggets side who have multiple players not named Nikola Jokic with a point to prove and just blasted past the struggling Houston Rockets at the weekend.

Denver Nuggets vs Memphis Grizzlies Betting Tips 

ESPN's BPI is backing the Nuggets to prevail here (60.2%), an understandable stance given their pedigree and impressive 39-21 record - despite injuries to key duo Jamal Murray (torn ACL) and Will Barton (hamstring). 

That's large because they have a clear MVP frontrunner in Jokic who, alongside third-year pro Michael Porter Jr, is capable of taking over games without warning, and I'd like to think they'll do similar overnight vs a defiant Grizzlies team who need to keep winning regardless of opposition considering they're eighth out West right now. 

Key facts

  • Nuggets rookie PG Campazzo recorded a new career-high 13 in Saturday's win over the Rockets.
  • Fourth-year SG PJ Dozier scored a new career-high over the weekend, too, with 23 points.
  • Memphis (18-12 away record) have won four from a six-game road stretch that ends overnight.
  • Ja Morant (19.4 PPG) has led the Grizzlies in scoring for four consecutive games and was the last player to do so early in his rookie year.
