The Grizzlies get a chance to chip away at the Nuggets lead at the top of the West tonight.
The Nuggets are currently 6 games ahead of the boys in Memphis and can take an even firmer lead tonight if they can gut out a big win in Fed Ex Forum Arena.

Barring a catastrophic collapse, the Joker will win his 3rd straight most Valuable Player and will be in line to have his best chance to win his first championship.
All eyes are on the Nuggets down the stretch to assert themselves as the far and away Number #1 seed in the West and that continues tonight.
The Nuggets are 4-1 in their last 5 ATS and are 4th in the league overall at covering the spread. They have also won 4 in a row and will look to make it 5 tonight in Memphis.
While I think the Nuggets could win this game outright, give me the points and the Nuggets to cover in what should be a battle from the opening tip.

Well, no surprise here to go with the Joker and finding great value on his assist line feels like a gift.
Jokic is averaging a Triple double, scoring 24.7 PPG, grabbing 11.6 RPG, and dishing 10.2 APG this season.
Just astounding numbers and that will be in full effect tonight.
Jokic has 10+ assists in 7 of his last 9 games and will have plenty of opportunity to dish the rock all night long tonight in Memphis.
Against the Grizzlies, he has 10+ assists in 2 of his last 3. And in those 2, he had a triple double as well.
It’s insane that his triple double basically has no value anymore at -120 on FanDuel, but his assists ladder is a nice option for a bit of bonus value.
He has 12+ assists in 2 of his last 3 vs Memphis and in 4 of his last 9 outright.
