LaMarcus Aldridge had 23 points and 14 rebounds on 8 of 16 shooting. Portland is the tenth seed in the Western conference and 3 ½ games behind the Utah Jazz. Portland must play better defense to get into the playoffs as the team ranks in the lower third of the NBA in points allowed and defensive field goal percentage.
Memphis is 23-8 on their home court. The Grizzlies win their ninth game in ten tries after a 108-82 road win at the Orlando Magic on Sunday as a -9 point betting favorite. The game landed over 184 points.
The Grizzlies shot 53% from the field in the win along with 11 of 24 from three point range. They held the Magic to only 39.7% shooting with poor three point shooting in 2 out of 15 makes. Tayshaun Prince led Memphis with 14 points on 6 of 12 from the floor. Moving out the inefficient Rudy Gay was a good move for Memphis. They rid themselves of a high volume 40% shooter and now the Grizzlies have shot the ball much better with distribution. Memphis is number one in the NBA in points allowed by giving up just 89.5 points a game.
