The Memphis Grizzlies need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 91 points on 40.5 percent shooting and allowing 100.8 points on 46.3 percent shooting. Zach Randolph is averaging 14.3 points and 8.9 rebounds while Marc Gasol is averaging 13.3 points and 6.3 rebounds. Mike Conley is dishing six assists and Tony Allen is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing teams to shoot 40.4 percent from three and have given up 100-plus points in four of their eight games. The only bright side for the Grizzlies is that six of their eight games have been on the road, and they did play well against the Clippers on Monday. Brandan Wright is questionable with a knee injury.
The Warriors are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Southwest and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Grizzlies are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Warriors are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Grizzlies finally showed signs of being the Grizzlies in a Monday loss to the Clippers, as Memphis could have easily won that game. Also, the Gizzlies do give the Warriors trouble on the defensive side, as we saw in last year's playoffs. I'm iffy with this bet, but I think there's value in taking Memphis at home with the points.
