Why the Nets can cover

Point guard Patty Mills, who has played a team-high 34 games, is coming off a 17-point performance in Saturday’s loss to the Clippers. He is averaging 14.2 points per game this season, and 18.2 points over the past 10 games, to go along with 2.5 assists and two rebounds. Mills has reached double-figure scoring in 13 of the past 14 games, including a season-high 34 points in a 122-115 win over the Lakers on Christmas Day. Mills, who hits 43.6 percent of his 3-point shots, is also nearly automatic at the line, hitting 89.7 percent of his foul shots.

Center LaMarcus Aldridge has reached double-figure scoring in seven consecutive games, including a 10-point performance on Saturday. He has one double-double on the season with 21 points and 11 rebounds in a 117-112 win at Cleveland on Nov. 22. For the season, Aldridge is averaging 13.7 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks. In 49 career games against the Grizzlies, he is averaging 18.7 points and 7.1 rebounds.

Why the Grizzlies can cover

Memphis is led by point guard Ja Morant, who has scored 30 or more points in each of the last three games. In Friday’s win over the Spurs, Morant scored 30 points, dished out eight assists and grabbed five rebounds. He is averaging 26.5 points, six rebounds and 6.2 assists over the past 10 games. For the season, Morant is averaging 24.7 points, 6.6 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game.

With Dillon Brooks possibly missing the game due to COVID-19 protocols, shooting guard Desmond Bane will look to pick up his offense for the Grizzlies. For the season, Bane is averaging 17.2 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists and one steal per game. He has scored in double figures in six consecutive games, including a season-high 32 points in a 114-113 victory at Phoenix last Monday.
