Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies made bettors happy this season, finishing with the best record against the spread in the NBA at 52-29-1 (64.2% cover rate). They also finished with the second-best record in the NBA (56-26) while exceeding their preseason win total by 14.5 games — the second-most in the NBA (behind only the Cavaliers).

The young Grizzlies took an unexpected leap into the top tier of the league as they are an incredibly deep team (maybe the deepest in the NBA) with a plethora of high-IQ players who can defend and shoot 3s.

The big question mark for the Grizzlies is how they will do in a playoff setting, where more of the game is played in the halfcourt. Their 93.4 Offensive Rating in the halfcourt ranked 22nd this season and is the second-worst of any top-six seed in either conference. They also played an NBA-low 74.6% of plays in the halfcourt, thanks to Morant so frequently zooming by defenders in transition.

Minnesota Timberwolves

The Timberwolves have been one of the pleasant surprises this year in the NBA, having made massive improvements on both ends of the court.

Offensively, they improved from 25th in Offensive Rating (110.1) last year to seventh (114.7) in Offensive Rating this year. Defensively, they rose from 27th (116.2) to 13th (111.6).

The offense has been surging the last third of the year. The Wolves have the third-best Offensive Rating since the All-Star break (120.1) and a 15-8 record over that span.
