The Portland Trail Blazers (25-30) have been trying to close the gap with the Memphis Grizzlies (27-26) for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. But the Grizz haven’t been making it easy as they’ve won 14 of their last 18, including a 106-99 victory over Washington on Sunday that saw Ja Morant pick up the first triple-double of his NBA career with 27 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds. These two teams will square off tonight in Memphis in their final game before the All-Star break. Tip off is 8:00 p.m. EST at FedEx Forum.

Seton Hall (18-5) has a firm hold on the top spot in the Big East standings thanks in large part to a perfect 6-0 record in conference road games that included the Pirates first win at Villanova since 1994. Kevin Willard’s team will try to be just as tough at home tonight as the Pirates host the Creighton Bluejays (18-6), who haven’t won at Seton Hall since 2016. Tip off is 6:30 p.m. EST at Prudential Center. To get Dunkel’s pick for this game and the full NCAA Basketball schedule, click HERE.
