The Memphis Grizzlies look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. On the season, the Grizzlies are averaging 98.9 points on 45.8 percent shooting and are allowing 95.4 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Marc Gasol is averaging 17.8 points and 7.9 rebounds while Zach Randolph is averaging 16.4 points and 10.8 rebounds. Mike Conley is dishing 5.3 assists and Jeff Green is shooting 40.8 percent from the field. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 48.2 percent from deep in their last five games and have topped 100 points in two of their last four games. The Grizzlies look to bounce back from a tough loss Wednesday to the Cavaliers in which they allowed 51.2 percent shooting.
The Warriors are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Grizzlies are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss. The Warriors are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
I look for the Grizzlies to rebound after a poor performance against the Cavs and compete a lot harder in this game. It's tough to win in Memphis, which is why the value here is with the home team and the points.
