Joe D'Amico's NBA 66% fast Break winner
Denver vs. Memphis,
02/17/2012 20:00 EDT,
Score: 102 - 103
Point Spread: -3½/-110 Memphis
Today's winner is Memphis over Denver. This is my Fast Break Winner.
Denver has been decimated by injuries over recent weeks as they have lost and failed to cover 8 of their L11 outings. Gallinari is out while both Nene and Mozgov is listed as very doubtful tonight. Without Gallinari and Nene, the Nuggets are losing the duos combined 30.4 PPG and 13.0 RPG. The team is also lacking leadership on the floor. When healthy, Denver can score points but even then, they are not much for playing defense. Just in their last game, they come off of their lowest scoring effort in over a month, in their 102-84 loss at Dallas in which they shot a mere 35.7% from the floor. Memphis is heating up, winning 4 of their L5 SU. The Grizzlies have 6 players averaging DDs, led by Rudy Gay (18.9 PPG). Center, Marc Gasol has posted just shy of 10 boards per game with 9.8 RPG. On any given night, any one of the 6 top-scorers can light up the opposition. They have won 3 of their L4 ATS and are 8-2 SU their L10 games played at home. The Nuggets are 1-4 ATS their L5 games played at the Grizzlies, 1-4 ATS their L5 games following a SU loss, and 1-5 ATS their L6 games played against teams with a winning record. The Grizzlies are 25-12 ATS their L37 games played at home, 7-3 ATS their L10 games following an ATS win, and 17-4 ATS their L21 games played as a home favorite of .5-4 1/2 points. Take Memphis. Thank you.
