Grizzlies Look To End This Series In Game 6
What seems to be the usual story of this series happened once again as the Memphis Grizzlies stormed back from an early deficit and wound up winning in the last seconds of the game to go up 3-2 in the series.
The Memphis Grizzlies outscored Minnesota, 37-24, in the final quarter to win by two points. Without these late-game collapses, Minnesota could have easily closed this series out already.
Now, they stand behind a game with their backs up against the wall. Which of these young rosters will take Game 6? Let’s take a closer look at this NBA game betting preview to see what’s the best option for those who bet online.
Grizzlies Flow Through Ja Morant
Truth be told, Ja Morant has not had a terrific series when you look at the stat sheet. His shooting numbers haven’t been what you want out of your top scorer.
However, Morant has an impact that goes far beyond scoring. He is the vocal and emotional leader of this team no matter which way you look at it. He also hit the game-winning shot in Game 5 to give his team the series lead.
During that matchup, he scored 30 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists. If Memphis is hoping to put an end to this series right now, Morant will have to be on his game.
Timberwolves Can’t Get In Their Heads
It seemed like their massive collapse earlier in the series is still haunting them. Entering the fourth quarter with an 11-point lead only to lose by two points is a tough pill to swallow.
Although, they just can’t let those two games be the death of them. It obviously isn’t how they wanted to go about this series, but if they allow themselves to think that they can’t close out a game, they won’t.
Karl Anthony-Towns, Anthony Edwards and Patrick Beverley are the leaders to keep this team on the right track. Plus, D’Angelo Russell has to show up offensively at some point in the series.
He scored 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting from the field, something that seems to be a regular night for him lately.
Grizzlies vs Timberwolves Head-to-Head
The Grizzlies and the Timberwolves split their regular season series this year. However, Memphis has now taken a 5-4 series lead overall against the Timberwolves.

Grizzlies vs Timberwolves Prediction
Looking at this game, it seems like a better decision to roll with the Grizzlies in Game 6 for your NBA picks. The Minnesota Timberwolves have choked away two double-digit leads entering the fourth quarter throughout this series already.
They are a very young and inexperienced roster that is still on the rise. Meanwhile, Memphis has stormed back from those deficits behind the excellent leadership of Morant alongside their incredible depth as a roster.
If you are looking at who to go with for your NBA picks, then the Grizzlies look to be in a great position to end it right here.
Pick: Memphis Grizzlies -1 (-110)
