Timberwolves vs Grizzlies Prediction
The totals for this series have consistently been higher than those of other First Round NBA Postseason matchups. This can largely be attributed to the fact that both the Timberwolves and Grizzlies were among the three fastest teams in the league this season. Minnesota’s Pace Factor of 103.5 led the league while the Grizzlies rank third in this metric with an average of 103.1 possessions used per game.
While the pace of both teams is duly noted, there have been several instances throughout this series in which the tempo has gotten extremely bogged down. Wolves head coach Chris Finch has openly implored his team to run and push the pace to maintain their rhythm on the offensive end. Thus, it is Memphis that has been duly attempting to slow down the pace of things.
The fact that the Grizzlies are the team more comfortable with slowing things down makes the under very appealing for Game 5. With the belief that the home team will assert itself in tonight’s Timberwolves vs Grizzlies matchup, one has to believe that the script of the game will also largely unfold in the home team’s favor. Reduced shooting percentages from one or both teams along with a less suffocating whistle are two additional components that figure to favor the game total staying under.
