Our Pick
Demar Derozan is going to be handling the ball a lot for the San Antonio Spurs. He’s even their assist leader with 6.9 per game. But to counter that, he’s averaging just 4.0 assists in his last five games. However Derozan’s usage rate is sure to increase, and he’ll be forced to create plays as the Grizzlies key in on him.

Our Pick
Over the Memphis Grizzlies’ last five games they’ve averaged 114.4 points per game. The San Antonio Spurs have averaged 116.8 points per game over the same amount of games. However, the Spurs’ defence has been lacking, allowing 123.6 points per game over their last five while also letting the Grizzlies average 127.0 points per game over their three meetings. While both will want to enforce a defensive game, neither are trending toward being able to follow through with one.

Our Pick
Both of these teams have been on a tear scoring the ball. The Warriors have been averaging 123.0 in their last five while the Lakers have been averaging 116.0 in their last five. Clearing 220.5 seems like an easy feat for these teams, especially with the pace that the Warriors like to push.

Our Pick
In his last five games, against teams with stronger rebounding than the Warriors, Drummond has averaged 13.2 rebounds per game. He’s also done so in limited minutes, an average of 25.4 per game. If he establishes his paint presence early, especially against the likes of Looney and Green, clearing 10.5 should be a given.
