The Memphis Grizzlies look for a statement victory after winning eight of their last 10 games.

Marc Gasol is averaging 16.1 points and 7.5 rebounds while Mike Conley is averaging 15.6 points and 6.3 assists. Zach Randolph is grabbing 8.6 rebounds and Mario Chalmers is dishing 2.9 assists.

The Grizzlies are allowing 42 percent shooting in their last five games and are starting to look like the Memphis team we’re used to seeing. The Memphis Grizzlies have won five of their last six home games.
The Spurs are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games. The Grizzlies are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games playing on 1 days rest. The Spurs are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Memphis and 11-4 ATS in the last 15 meetings overall.
The Grizzlies are back to being the Grizzlies team we're used to seeing. Memphis has also beaten San Antonio in two of the last four meetings. I'll gladly take the free bucket with Memphis at home against a Spurs team that just played last night.
