Free NBA Pick
The Blazers are the betting favorite in this game even though they are 0-6 against the Grizzlies this season, 0-6 ATS against them. And lost each game in this series in Memphis by double digits. Portland shot 33.7% from the floor in Game 1 and 39% in Game 2.
LeMarcus Aldridge has been scoring, but is really struggling with his shot in the series and 2nd leading scorer Damian Lillard is a combined 10/37 from the field. The solid Memphis defense, which ranked 2nd in the league this season in opponents’ points allowed, has stiffed the Blazers. The Blazers seem to be a different team at home, but with how the Grizzlies are playing I think they will at least cover the spread in this Game 3.
