Over Under Total Pick:
The Nets are a solid 5-2 straight up since the break with the two losses coming on the road against Golden State and Portland. Memphis has an identical record with two road losses in Charlotte and Oklahoma City. Nothing stands out to us to take a position on a side, so instead we’ll look at the total. The over has cashed in 7 straight Grizzlies’ games with Memphis hitting the century mark in 5 out of their last 6 and their opponents 3 of their last 4. The Nets allow 97.6 at home while scoring 98.7 so don’t expect a defensive battle tonight. Take the OVER 189.
