Predictions For Betting On Grizzlies Mavericks – Grizzlies Must Give Ownership Reason Not To Make Move

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/10/2013 6:41:20 PM

The Memphis Grizzlies have spent the past two seasons developing in to a legitimate Western Conference contender. Whether or not they get the chance to show what they can do this postseason could come down to ownership’s financial commitment. The Grizzlies are currently fourth in the standings but are also in the luxury tax, a burden ownership will be forced to deal with if they don’t unload a significant contract. Both Rudy Gay and Zach Randolph have come up in recent trade rumors, but both will be on the floor as Memphis takes on the Dallas Mavericks this Saturday.

The Mavericks would certainly be willing trade partners with the Grizzlies if they could get a deal done for either player, a move that would provide a significant boost a team that currently sits 12th in the West. Dallas had lost nine of its past 10 games as of Wednesday night, and has struggled since the return of Dirk Nowitzki.

Gay and Randolph have played integral roles at both ends of the floor, combining to lead the team in both average points and rebounds this season. Gay has averaged a team-high 17.8 points per game and 5.8 rebounds, while Randolph has averaged 16.8 points and 12 rebounds per game. Randolph is regarded as being more important to the Grizzlies’ top-ranked defense, but that doesn’t take away from the impact Gay has made. Memphis has played well both at home and on the road, and a strong run over the next couple of weeks could prevent ownership from moving a key sports betting piece.

The Mavericks on the other hand have struggled both at home and on the road, and are just one game above .500 at the American Airlines Center this season. OJ Mayo has averaged a team-high 18.3 points and Nowitzki has averaged 12.5 points per game since his return, but that hasn’t been nearly enough for a team that ranks 28th in the NBA in average points allowed. Dallas would certainly benefit from another big body in the middle, but need to play better perimeter defense regardless. Already 6.5 games out of a playoff spot, the Mavericks will need to show some urgency to avoid slipping out of contention before the end of the month.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Missing out on the playoffs and earning a better shot at a lottery pick could be the best thing for a Dallas team that has too many holes to be a legitimate contender this online sportsbook season. The Mavericks have not played well at home or away, and they will be in tough to keep up with a talented Memphis group that is fighting to prove it has a legitimate shot at reaching the NBA Finals in 2013.
