Orlando Magic vs Memphis Grizzlies Preview

Dillon Brooks scored 20 points. Jonas Valanciunas produced his 42nd double-double of the season (14 pts, 15 rebs). The Memphis Grizzlies snapped a two-game losing streak with a 92-75 win over the Orlando Magic overnight - despite both struggling with their shooting efficiency.

Taylor Jenkins' men shot a lowly 34.3% from the field. Still, they outscored their visitors 36-15 in the third quarter to take control in a matchup many expected they'd win considering the contrasting circumstances.

One franchise is battling for a postseason berth, the other rebuilding after trading away their All-Star centre at the deadline. Jenkins said it best post-game:

"We've got to take every game seriously and move forward, especially this time of year."

That continues in the first game of May, looking to string together successive wins as they did in Portland at the beginning of what has proven a busy week.

Orlando Magic vs Memphis Grizzlies Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI favour the Grizzlies to secure a season sweep overnight (64.3% win probability), understandable given Orlando's rebuilding roster and the fact their visitors are trying to defend eighth out West.

Last season's Rookie of the Year Ja Morant leads Memphis in scoring - averaging 19.3 points per game in 54 contests this season. However, his efficiency has taken a considerable hit this term amid suggestions opposition defences have learned how to impact his bucket-getting abilities.

He recorded a combined 18 points on 6-of-23 shooting (26%) in the final two games of April, after five straight games with 20+ points. As such, his influence will likely have a decisive impact on this matchup, especially after a low-key outing overnight. I'm predicting a Memphis win.

Key facts

  • Winless at home since March 25, Orlando looks to snap a nine-game home losing streak here.
  • Memphis rank fourth out West for defensive rebounds per game (35.3), led by Valanciunas (8.3)
  • Morant is averaging 19.3 PPG on 45.5 FG% and 29.8 3P%, both down from last year.
