The Brooklyn Nets got caught by the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday Night and lost 120-116. Tonight, they will try to rebound against the Memphis Grizzlies, who are playing great basketball right now.
Brooklyn has lost two in a row, but that's not the story of the week. The Nets will get Kyrie Irving back on Wednesday, which changes the trajectory of the whole season. Tonight will be a great test for the Nets, but everyone's eyes will be focused on Irving on Wednesday night.

Grizzlies vs. Nets Prediction and Pick
With all the attention being focused on Wednesday night, this game has the potential to be a trap game for the Nets. However, I'm going to back them to break out of their slump. They shouldn't have lost to the Clippers and tonight will be a good bounce back game for them.
Although I'm picking them to win the game, Memphis won't make it easy. Ja Morant is playing at an amazing level right now and the Grizzlies are following his lead. Memphis is in the top three in defensive and net rating over the last 10 games. The Grizz will give the Nets a fight, so I'll take the Grizzlies ATS.
Pick: Grizzlies +6.5 (-110)
