The Grizzlies are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest.

The Suns are absolute trash on the road and couldn't even beat a banged up Washington team on Friday night. The Grizzlies are playing far better basketball as of late despite their struggles offensively. I'll take Memphis and the reasonable chalk.
