The Memphis Grizzlies and the Philadelphia 76ers duke it out at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night.
The Grizzlies will be looking to build on their current five-game win streak after blowing past the Hornets in a 105-90 road win on Monday. Mike Conley drained five 3-pointers en route to a game-high 31 points, Zach Randolph added 14 points off the bench while Marc Gasol chipped in with 13 points, eight rebounds and nine assists as the Grizzlies dominated the Hornets by 69-45 in the first half before cruising in the second half. Tony Allen was listed as questionable coming into the game, but he did suit up and finished with 12 points while Chandler Parsons sat out with a bruised left knee and won't be re-evaluted for another two weeks.

Meanwhile, the Sixers have surprisingly won three of their last four games and they'll be aiming for a third straight win after taking down the Heat in a 101-94 upset win on Monday night. Joel Embiid led from the front with 22 points in just 23 minutes, Gerald Henderson added 19 points while Jahlil Okafor chipped in with 15 points off the bench as the Sixers won their fourth straight home game. The Sixers are averaging 98 points per game on the season, but a healthy 109.7 points in their last four home games. With the win, Philadelphia improves to 4-10 overall and 4-5 at home.
In ATS trends, the Grizzlies are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a win and 4-0 ATS in their last four road games, while the Sixers are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games following a win.
Head to head, the Grizzlies are 10-4-1 ATS in the last 15 meetings overall and a dominant 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings in Philadelphia.
I'm still coming to grips with it, but the Sixers have won their last four games at home and they're a fun team to watch when Embiid gets the crowd involved. However, the Grizzlies are coming into this game looking for a sixth straight win and you just know what you're getting from them every night.
