The San Antonio Spurs look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. On the season, the Spurs are averaging 102.7 points on 46.2 percent shooting and are allowing 97.5 points on 44.4 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 15.9 points and 7.3 rebounds while Tony Parker is averaging 14.8 points and 4.9 assists. Tim Duncan is grabbing 9.3 rebounds and Manu Ginobili is dishing 4.3 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 49.5 percent in their last five games and seem to be entering playoff mode. The Spurs have won 10 of their last 11 games on their home court. The Spurs also have a shot at home court in the first round if they keep playing this way. Aron Baynes is doubtful with an ankle injury.
The Grizzlies are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 vs. Western Conference and 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 Sunday games. The Spurs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. Western Conference. The Grizzlies are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
I like the Grizzlies, but they're hard to trust after really laying an egg at home against two of the better teams in the league. I don't see that changing against the defending champs on the road.
