On Tuesday, the New Orleans Pelicans will face the Memphis Grizzlies at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, LA. The Pelicans will host the game at 9AM CT.
New Orleans has struggled this season due to its injured lineup. Anthony Davis has played exceptionally well as he logged in 23.9 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.4 block shots per game. However, his exceptional contributions has not translated into many wins this season.
Coach Alvin Gentry knows that Anthony Davis could not do it alone. Guards Tyreke Evans and Norris Cole will return from their injuries. With this two in active role, expect Anthony Davis to roam more freely inside the paint and opponents will be a little wary to throw him a double or triple team defense.
The Memphis Grizzlies are slowly showing their form as they struggled in their first few games of the season. Memphis has a 5-1 record whenever they outrebound their opponents. However, they must cut down their turnovers and improve their transition defense.
The sportsbook handicappers have installed the New Orleans Pelicans as a 1-point favorite to beat the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night.
