The Los Angeles Clippers and the Memphis Girzzlies will meet in their season opener tonight from the Staples Center. NBA odds are at Top Bet sportsbook.
It was back to the norm for the Clippers this off-season as Lakers stole all the headlines, but the Clippers also made some pretty solid moves. You already know about their core players, and they added the trio of Lamar Odom, Jamal Crawford, and Grant Hill to add to their depth which will serve them well for the long haul that is the regular season. The Clippers are going with the theory that there is no such thing as having soup too many good players and we will see if it serves them well throughout the season.
The Grizzlies will look to take the next step this season as they came up short to the same Clippers in a first round playoff exit. The Grizzlies are a pretty puzzling team in that some seasons they come out looking highly motivated and others they struggle and look lethargic. We are looking for Memphis this season however to develop some consistency within their organization and have another solid season in which they are a 4 or 5 seed in the West once again.
If you look at the games of these teams last season they were all close. We see no reason that will not continue in tonight season opener. Give us Memphis as road underdogs on the point spread in this game at the sportsbooks.
