The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Memphis Grizzlies collide at the FedExForum on Thursday night. Here’s a Cavs vs Grizzlies Prediction.

Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been on a tear as they’ve won 11 of their last 12 games overall and they will be gunning for a fourth straight win after sneaking past the Pistons in a 128-121 win last night. Donovan Mitchell led the team with 45 points and eight assists on 14 of 25 shooting, Darius Garland added 19 points while Jarrett Allen chipped in with 14 points and 11 rebounds. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 52 percent from the field and 12 of 35 from the 3-point line as they found themselves in a real wrestling match with the pesky Pistons, until they closed the final 3:43 on a 15-5 run to escape with the narrow win in the end.

Cleveland Cavaliers Team Facts

  • The Cavaliers have won each of their last 15 games as favorites.
  • The Cavaliers have covered the spread in eight of their last nine games against opponents who are on the first leg of a back-to-back.
  • Four of the Cavaliers’ last five games against opponents who are on the first leg of a back-to-back have gone UNDER the total points line.

Memphis Grizzlies

Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies have been in fine form as they’ve won six of their last 10 games overall, and they will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after getting beaten by the Kings in a 103-94 loss on Monday. Jaren Jackson Jr led the team with 22 points, Santi Aldama added 16 points, while Scottie Pippen Jr chipped in with 12 points and five assists. As a team, the Grizzlies shot just 37 percent from the field and 13 of 36 from the 3-point line as they dominated the first quarter by 33-18, only to get completely outplayed the rest of the way in one of their more disappointing defeats this season. Jackson Jr shot just six of 18 from the field and zero of four from the 3-point line, while GG Jackson shot just four of 14 from the field. The Grizzlies will face the Warriors and Celtics after this game.

Memphis Grizzlies Team Facts

  • The Grizzlies have won each of their last 12 home games against Central Division opponents.
  • The Grizzlies have covered the spread in each of their last nine Thursday games at FedExForum.
  • Nine of the Grizzlies’ last 10 home games against Eastern Conference opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Cavs vs Grizzlies Prediction

The Cavaliers are still missing Ty Jerome, while the Grizzlies are still without most of their starting lineup including Derrick Rose, Ja Morant, Desmond Bane and Marcus Smart. It’s always tough to play on zero days rest, but the Cavaliers have arguably been the hottest team in the league and they came through when they needed it most against the Pistons last night, so I’ll stick with the Cavaliers to stay hot with another win against this Grizzlies team depleted by injuries.
