The Line: Memphis Grizzlies +10.5 -- Over/Under: 200 See the Latest Odds
The Los Angeles Clippers invade the FedExForum to take on the Memphis Grizzlies tonight.
The Clippers have lost four of their last seven games but will be feeling confident after taking apart the Rockets in a 122-106 win on Wednesday. Chris Paul steered the offense with 15 points and 16 assists, JJ Redick led the scoring with 25 points while DeAndre Jordan added 23 points and 16 rebounds as the Clippers jumped all over the Rockets early on, leading by 72-50 at halftime before cruising in the second half. With the dominant win, Los Angeles improves to 43-24 on the season which is good enough for fourth place in the Western Conference standings.

Meanwhile, the Grizzlies' long list of injuries look to have finally caught up with them as they've lost six of their last eight games including their last four straight following Thursday's 96-86 loss at Milwaukee. Matt Barnes led the team in scoring with 20 points, Lance Stephenson added 19 points and six assists while Tony Allen had 13 points, but while the Grizzlies put up a great fight without a bunch of their best players, it was the Bucks who dominated the fourth quarter by 28-13 to steal the game behind 13 fourth-quarter points from Tyler Ennis. With the loss, Memphis drops to 39-30 on the season which is currently good for fifth place in the Western Conference.
In ATS trends, the Clippers are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall and 13-6 ATS in their last 19 road games, while the Grizzlies are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games following a loss and 16-6 ATS in their last 22 home games.
Head to head, the Clippers are 2-11 ATS in the last 13 meetings overall and 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings in Memphis.
The Grizzlies have really been struggling without key players like Marc Gasol and Mike Conley so I can't see them hanging with a Clippers team who looked really good in their last outing. Take CP3 and the Clippers to roll to a double digit win on the road tonight.
