Clippers vs Grizzlies Free Pick April 29, 2012

April 28, 2012

The NBA’s second season started April 28 with 16 teams and all with the same goal, winning the NBA title. One opening round series that looks to be a great matchup is the Los Angeles Clippers versus the Memphis Grizzlies. The Clippers were ahead of Memphis in the playoff race right up until the last game of the regular season. However, Memphis was able to slide past the Clippers into fourth place and take home court advantage away from Los Angeles.

The series gets under way on April 29 in Memphis. The Clippers were 40-26 on the season, but ended the season losing their last two games and were 6-4 SU over their last ten games. On the road, the Clippers were 16-17 on the year. Los Angeles will rely on two key figures in their lineup, Blake Griffin their leading scorer and leading rebounder and Chris Paul their leader in assists and second leading scorer. Paul may be slowed a bit by a sore groin and that could hurt the Clippers.

The Grizzlies finished the season 41-25. They come into the playoffs having won six straight games and were 8-2 SU over the last 10 games of the season. Memphis will rely on Rudy Gay for their scoring and Marc Gasol to clear the boards. Mike Conley runs the offense as their assist leader and leads the team in steals.

Head to head the teams are completely even 5-5 SU and ATS in the last 10. The games between the teams are usually defensive struggles and that is evidenced in the point total. In the last ten games between the two teams, the total has been UNDER 8 times and OVER 2 times.

The teams met three times this past season. The Clippers were 2-1 SU and ATS in those three matchups. The total ended UNDER in all three games between the two teams this season.

The current line has Memphis as 5 ½-point favorites with the line sitting at 184. Smart money takes the Clippers plus the points in a game that will end UNDER.
