Timberwolves vs Grizzlies Prediction & Pick
After a promising start to the year, things have fallen apart for the Timberwolves. They're averaging the 12th-fewest points over the last three games, which has a lot to do with their converting just 30.7% of three-point attempts during that span — fourth worst league-wide.
Poor shooting like that will make it difficult for the T-Wolves to handle the Grizzlies. Memphis is tied for averaging the sixth-most three-pointers made at home (14.6) while converting on 38.6% of attempts overall (No. 4). Bane leads his team with 4.0 threes made per game, while Morant (2.1) and Dillon Brooks (2.2) aren't too far behind him.
The good news for the aforementioned trio is that the Timberwolves are awful against perimeter shooting. Not only do they allow opponents to convert on 37.7% of attempts (seventh-worst), but they also surrender an NBA-high 15.1 three-pointers per game.
With the Grizzlies also winning seven of their last eight home games against the Timberwolves, this is anything but a favorable matchup for Minnesota. Give me Memphis winning this one without much issue.
Final Score Prediction: Grizzlies: 121 | Timberwolves: 110
