NBA Picks and Predictions on this Tuesday August 11th, 2020 game between the Boston Celtics vs Memphis Grizzlies.

Tipoff is set for 5:00 pm et. The current odds have the Celtics as -5.5 point favorites with the over/under at 224.5 total points.

Boston comes into this game fresh off locking up the number three seed on Friday with a 122-199 overtime win against the Magic.

Interesting enough this game will have some meaning for the Celtics because they actually own the rights to the Grizzlies’ first-round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, unless the Memphis’ pick lands in the top six. So, tonight if Boston does beat Memphis, then the Grizzlies’ odds to make the playoffs decrease and so does Boston’s chances of getting that lottery pick.

Boston is 6-2 against the spread in their last 8 games against Memphis and the total has gone over in 5 of the Celtics last 7 games.

Memphis comes into this game in desperate need of a win after dropping five of their first six seeding games and losing Jaren Jackson Jr. for the rest of the season. The loss on Sunday against the Raptors 108-99, guaranteed that a play-in series would take place.

The play-in game is scheduled for Saturday and will take place between the 8th seed and 9th seed. If the 8th seed wins the game, they will officially make it into the playoffs and take on the Lakers in the opening series. If the 9th seed wins, the two teams will battle each other again on Sunday for a winner-take-all game for that final playoff spot.

Ja Morant will need to be super charged tonight and really step it up big time to get this win.
