Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies travel to the Desert to take on the Devin Booker-less Phoenix Suns in a Christmas Eve-Eve holiday Western Conference showdown.
After you finish your last minute Christmas shopping, sit back and enjoy this late night West-Coast game.
Here is my analysis, a game prediction and a player prop of the game!
The Grizzlies on a Slide?
The Grizzlies won 7 straight games but they lost their last 2 against the Thunder and the Nuggets.
In their last game against the Nuggets, Ja scored 35 points and it still wasn’t enough to hang with the Nuggets.
The Grizzlies are a bit lost right now and I think the Suns will come out and look to take advantage here.
No Booker, No problem?
It got confirmed that Booker will miss this game due to a groin injury.
The Suns have put their early slump behind them, winning 4 of their last 5 and looking like they are back to top form again.
Even without Booker tonight, the Suns should be able to play well at home and give the Grizzlies all the can handle and more.
In this battle between 2 Western conference foes sitting in the top 4 of the West, who will come out on top and grab an early Christmas W?
- Grizzlies -3 (-110)
- Suns +3 (-110)
- Grizzlies (-148)
- Suns (+126)
- Over 226.5 (-110)
- Under 226.5 (-110)
I know the Suns have been very up and down this season but the Grizzlies have been inconsistent the past week and I think that continues tonight.
I love the Suns to keep this game close and give the Grizzlies all they can handle and possibly win this one outright at home.
I am trusting Chris Paul and DeAndre Ayton to have big nights and carry this Suns team to cover the spread, and quite possibly win outright.
Suns +3 (-110)
Prop of the Game
Chris Paul o10.5 Assists (-111)
With the no Booker news in this game, I like CP3s assists even more.
Paul will have the ball in his hands so much tonight and will have plenty of opportunity to make plays all over the court tonight.
In his last 3 matchups against the Grizzlies, he had 11+ assists while playing 30+ minutes in every matchup.
I love one of the best facilitators in the league to have a big game tonight dishing the rock.
Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you have a very safe and happy holiday weekend!
