The Memphis Grizzlies invade Madison Square Garden to battle the New York Knicks tonight.
The Memphis Grizzlies have won four of their last five and will be going for a third straight win after making light work of the Trailblazers in a 97-86 win on Saturday. Jeff Green made five threes en route to a team-high 23 points, Mike Conley added 21 points and Zach Randolph had 17 as the Grizzlies improved to 49-21 on the season and 27-7 at home. With the win, Memphis expands their lead of third-placed Houston to 2 1/2 games with just 12 games left in the regular season.

Meanwhile, the season just can't end quick enough for the New York Knicks who are coming off a third straight loss and their 10th loss in 12 games. Last night against the Raptors, Lance Thomas scored 24 points while Andrea Bargnani added 16 points, but no one else in the team finished in double figures as the Knicks slumped to a league-worst 14-56 on the season. Tim Hardaway Jr. sat out the game with a sprained right wrist and is listed as questionable for tonight's game against the Grizzlies.
In ATS trends, the Grizzlies are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games following a win and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a losing record, while the Knicks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games against a team above .600 and 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall.
Head to head, the home team is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings and the over is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings.
The spread is a little hefty for this game, but there really isn't any reason the Grizzlies shouldn't be able to cover this spread with ease, especially since they've already routed the Knicks earlier this season.
