Why Memphis Will Win

The high-stakes poker games that take place on a nightly basis in the NBA require an imposing presence on the floor, and Memphis is the team that can impose its will on this game. The Grizzlies are so powerful inside with the combination of Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph. It's true that Boston still boasts Kevin Garnett, a long-armed and savvy defender who knows his way around the basket and has the nasty competitive edge that makes him such a fierce figure on the court.

However, Garnett is only one man; he's not two. Memphis might watch Gasol get contained by Garnett, but that still leaves Randolph for Boston to deal with. Memphis's power and defense are going to be very hard for the Celtics to handle in this contest. Memphis might have only one day off before this game begins, but one should realize that the Grizzlies played a Monday afternoon matinee against the Indiana Pacers on Monday.

They will have a bit more rest than a lot of casual observers might realize. If you're looking closely at this game, you'll come to the conclusion that Memphis will not be leg-weary against Boston, and that should matter a great deal when all is said and done.

Why Boston Will Win

People in the football betting world who don't pay all that much attention to NBA basketball have probably not noticed something specific about the Celtics this season: While they enter 2013 with a 5-11 road record, they are 9-5 at home. There is a clear differentiation between the way the Celtics play in their home building and away from it.

Boston just got back from its West Coast late-December road trip, a swing that the team has rarely if ever handled well over the past few years, even while it made the NBA Finals and proved itself to be one of the top teams in the league. Now that the Celtics are home from that West Coast trip, they will have two whole days off before this contest. Boston regularly performs better when given a chance to heal.

The Celtics should be able to lock down Memphis' offense with good rotations and an extra measure of determination. This is something of a statement game, the kind of game the Celtics need to win as they linger just below the .500 mark, in search of a timely jolt of inspiration to revive their flagging season.

Who Will Win

This is going to be a fairly close game, because Boston is rested and at home. Yet, Memphis is not going to be overly tired for this contest, and its matchup advantages in the paint should give the Grizzlies enough leverage to pull through.
