The Grizzlies have lost three of their last five but will be looking to build on last night's 92-89 win over the Wizards. Nick Calathes and Marc Gasol led the team with 18 points apiece as the Grizzlies survived a career-high 37 points from Bradley Beal. Memphis led by as many as 16 points midway through the third quarter before escaping with the win on a missed jumper from Beal that would have sent the game to overtime. Mike Conley missed yet another game with the ankle injury and given that this will be Memphis' last game before the All-Star break, they could elect to keep him out for an extra week of rest.

Meanwhile, the Magic have suddenly found themselves in a rich vein of form and will be looking to build on a three-game win streak after sneaking past the Pacers by 93-92 on Sunday. Victor Oladipo led the scoring with 23 points off the bench while Nikola Vucevic added 19 points and 13 rebounds as the Magic rallied in the fourth quarter to win their third straight game overall and fifth straight at home which. With the win, Orlando improve to 16-37 overall and 13-14 at home.
In ATS trends, the Grizzlies are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall, while the Magic are 7-0 ATS in their last seven home games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record.
Head to head, the Grizzlies are 15-7 ATS in the last 22 meetings.
I'm definitely going with the Magic who have beaten the Thunder and the Pacers in their last two, against the Grizzlies who have lost to the Cavaliers and snuck past the Wizards in theirs.
