Meanwhile, the Grizzlies have lost three of their last four after falling to the Heat by 100-97 last night. Jeff Green led the team with 26 points on 10 of 20 shooting, Matt Barnes added 13 points while Marc Gasol had 12, but the Grizzlies just couldn't hold off the Heat who rallied from a 10-point deficit midway through the fourth to steal the win on a clutch jumper from Dwyane Wade. With the loss, Memphis drops to 13-12 on the season and 6-6 on the road where they had won three straight before last night's loss.
In ATS trends, the Wizards are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games against a team with a winning record, while the Grizzlies are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games playing on zero days rest and 0-6 ATS in their last six home games.
Head to head, the Wizards are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings and the under is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Memphis.
The Grizzlies really should win this game, playing at home against an opponent missing their second leading scorer in Bradley Beal, but the Wizards really looked good in their last outing and could pull off yet another upset.
