Grizzlies Now In Driver Seat Heading Home For Game Three

Posted by Craig Parsons on 5/10/2013 5:54:49 PM

The Memphis Grizzlies weren’t given a chance to get past the first round by many of the sports betting experts that cover the NBA. After upsetting the Los Angeles Clippers in their opening series and stealing game two from the Oklahoma City Thunder, Memphis now heads home with home court advantage for its second round series, three wins away from clinching a spot in the Western Conference Finals.

Western Conference 2nd Round
Oklahoma City Thunder @ Memphis Grizzlies
Saturday, 5:00 PM ET – Game 3
Series tied 1-1

The Grizzlies bounced back from a close loss in game one to take control of the series with a much better performance in game two, capitalizing on their interior strengths to take it to Oklahoma City down low and play a much more physical game. Memphis outscored the Thunder a whopping 44-16 from the field on shots attempted inside of five feet, handing Oklahoma City its second-worst beating of the season inside. Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol combined for 39 points in the online sportsbook win, and Mike Conley took advantage of the attention paid to the inside game and no Russell Westbrook to score 26 points on 11-of-22 shooting. Kevin Durant was double-teamed all game and still finished with 36 points, but the Grizzlies learned that if they play a physical game at both ends of the floor and force the ball in to the hands of someone other than Durant as much as they can, they will be able to take control of this series.

NBA Betting Pick: Memphis Grizzlies – 2.5
Eastern Conference 2nd Round
New York Knicks @ Indiana Pacers
Saturday, 8:00 PM ET – Game 3
Series tied 1-1

New York was caught sleeping again in game one against the Pacers, but after allowing Indiana to steal one on the road it was a must-win online betting situation in game two and the Knicks responded. Carmelo Anthony went off for 32 points on 13-of-26 shooting, and also grabbed nine rebounds on the way to finishing a plus-20 in a much more focused effort. The fact that JR Smith had just eight points on 3-of-15 shooting and New York still won by 26 is testament to how much the Knicks picked it up in game two, but at the same time there were a number of experts that agreed Indiana didn’t bring the best effort in to game two.

New York will take the momentum of that big win with them when they travel for game three against the Pacers, and will be eager to steal one on the road to take back home advantage in the series. Whether or not Indiana can just turn it right back up at home is an interesting question as they did win all three home games against the Atlanta Hawks, but it should be a close game regardless as the Knicks try to avoid another series deficit and perhaps even steal one on the road.

NBA Betting Pick: New York Knicks + 3.5
