Grizzlies Look to Play Spoiler in Monday Matchup With Timberwolves

4: Dillon Brooks #24 of the Memphis Grizzlies reacts after scoring a three pointer against the New Orleans Pelicans during the first half of a NBA game at the Smoothie King Center on April 4, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Minnesota Timberwolves pulled themselves into a tie with the Denver Nuggets for the eighth spot in the Western Conference playoff race and face a must-win contest against the lowly Memphis Grizzlies on Monday with only two games remaining in the season. Quietly, the Grizzlies are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games.

SHARK BITES

  • The Grizzlies are 0-7 SU in their last seven games with no days off between games.
  • The Grizzlies are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games.

Minnesota snapped a brief two-game losing streak on Friday with a 113-96 triumph over the Los Angeles Lakers, but the more important story was the return of all-star swingman Jimmy Butler. Butler, who’s missed the last six weeks due to a knee injury, didn’t show any signs of rust by recording 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting and four steals in 23 minutes of action.

The Grizzlies ended their home schedule with a 130-117 win over Detroit on Sunday thanks to 25 points from MarShon Brooks. The Grizz shot a season-high 57.8 percent from the floor in the game, which came on the heels of a four-game slide in which the Grizzlies scored 98 points or less in each contest. On the season, Memphis is an NBA-worst 6-33 SU away from home.

Memphis has won the last four meetings in this series, including the first two meetings between the clubs in 2017-18. UNDER bettors are profiting in this series, as the UNDER is 4-1 in the last five meetings between the Grizz and T-Wolves with an average combined score of 189.
