Miami Heat @ Sacramento Kings

The Miami Heat and Sacramento Kings open up this Saturday’s slate of games. The Kings are still searching for their first win of the season, while Miami is looking for the gameplay they left in the playoffs.

Sacramento had the blessing of starting the season with a home stint, but they have done nothing with that luxury. They have a chance to pick up a win in this one, as Miami has struggled to start the year, but Miami knows this is a golden opportunity to right the ship.

The Heat have looked decent, but they haven’t been able to close out spots where they should. Except for their last game against Golden State, all their losses have come by eight points or less. So they should drop the hammer on Sacramento tonight.

Memphis Grizzlies @ Utah Jazz

The Memphis Grizzlies head to Salt Lake City for a two-game set with the Jazz.

The Jazz have lost two of their last three as they split games with Houston and took a beating from the Denver Nuggets. Now, they face a Memphis team that just issued a beatdown to the Sacramento Kings and the Brooklyn Nets.

After exiting the playoffs earlier than desired last year, the Grizzlies are coming for blood this season. At points of last year, Memphis was the best team in the league, and with some offseason improvements, they hope to carry that title throughout this season.

The Jazz has been a surprise this year. They were on tank watch when they lost Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell in the offseason. However, they opened their schedule with three straight wins; their only losses have come against teams they have had to play multiple times. As strong as they have looked, they have their work cut out for them against the Grizzlies.

Memphis -2.5 (-110) & Over 226.5 (-110)
