The NBA season is kicking off and my goodness there is a great slate of games. The Grizzlies against the Knicks could be one of the highest-flying, highest-scoring games of the season. The Grizzlies last season fell just short of making it to the Western Conference Finals, only losing to the team that won the whole thing, the Golden State Warriors. While the Knicks had one of the most disappointing seasons they’ve had in a while, which is really saying something due to the history of disappointment that the franchise has had recently, so they’ll truly be wanting to start this season on a good note.
On one hand, it’s easy to see why the Grizzlies would be favored in this matchup. As stated before, in last year’s playoffs the only team they lost to was the eventual world-champion Warriors, so a pretty good season by any standards. They also were one of the only teams that somehow were just as good if not better without their star Ja Morant in the lineup. However, they did lose key pieces in De’Anthony Melton to the 76ers, and Kyle Anderson to the Timberwolves, which not for nothing were part-time starters in their time in Memphis. Also, Jaren Jackson Jr is gonna be out this game which I’m relatively confident won’t help the Grizzlies’ chances of winning.
On the other hand, the Knicks have actually gotten better in the offseason, which feels so weird to say, like the Patriots not winning the AFC Championship this year. But it has happened. The Knicks picked up the incredibly talented point guard from the Maverick’s Jalen Brunson, who did nothing but shine when Luka was out, willing the Mavericks to several wins. They also picked up Isaiah Hartenstein this offseason, who in his 18 minutes a game last season averaged 5 rebounds, 8.3 points, and a block.
These are the games that basketball’s all about, these are two young exciting teams, with young exciting players. My head says the Grizzlies, but my heart says the Knicks. I would say stick with the head though and take the Grizzlies’ Moneyline.
