In a huge matchup between two playoff teams, the Brooklyn Nets are traveling to the Memphis to attempt to win over a Ja-less Grizzlies team. And yes, the Nets are on the road which means their part time ALL-STAR Kyrie Irving will be available for action! The line is set at Brooklyn -2.5.
At first glance, this seems like a very odd line, especially for a Brooklyn team who will have Kyrie and a Grizzlies team who will not have their best player. However, if you look at Memphis' record without Ja it is quite impressive. I'm not sure how they do it, but in Ja Morant's 16 games he's been absent, the Grizzlies have gone 14-2. Players like Desmond Bane and Jaren Jackson have stepped up to help push the grizzlies in these games. HOWEVER, defeating a Nets team with Kyrie and KD without Ja is a large task.
I just don't see it happening. The Nets are so good when they have both Kyrie and KD playing at the same time. Kyrie is well rested due to the fact he only can play in away games, and KD is up there with Lebron for the best player in the world. I like my Nets here.
Bet: Nets ML & Nets -2.5
