The Memphis Grizzlies need a win after splitting their last 10 games. On the season, the Grizzlies are averaging 98.7 points on 45.8 percent shooting and are allowing 95.6 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Marc Gasol is averaging 17.7 points and 7.8 rebounds while Zach Randolph is averaging 16.3 points and 10.6 rebounds. Mike Conley is dishing 5.3 assists and Jeff Green is shooting 41.4 percent from the field. The Memphis Grizzlies have been blown out in three straight games and starting to look like frauds heading into the playoffs. The Grizzlies are coming off a Sunday loss to the Spurs in which they allowed 50.6 percent shooting. Tony Allen is questionable with a hamstring injury.
The Kings are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference and 17-37-2 ATS in their last 56 games overall. The Grizzlies are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 vs. Western Conference. The road team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
Would you back the Grizzlies after their last three games? Not me. Sure, Memphis has played some top comp, but they weren't even remotely compeitive. Give me the points as more of a fade from the Grizz.
