The Line: Memphis Grizzlies -3 -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Dallas Mavericks travel to the FedEx Forum to battle the Memphis Grizzlies tonight.
The Mavericks will be looking to bounce back after having their six-game win streak snapped by the Thunder in a 117-114 loss on Sunday. Deron Williams led the team in scoring with 20 points, Wesley Matthews added 18 points while Dirk Nowitzki had just 11 points as the Mavs shot a healthy 53 percent from the field but still couldn't get past the Thunder. Defensively, the Mavs allowed Russell Westbrook to get hot early and he burned them with 31 points, six of which were scored in the final 2:01 of the game to send the Mavs to 9-5 on the season and 5-3 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Grizzlies were quietly heating up with four straight wins before having their streak snapped with a 92-82 win at San Antonio on Saturday. Mike Conley scored 16 points and five assists, Courtney Lee added 15 points while Matt Barnes had 10, but no other player finished in double figures as the Grizzlies shot 43.2 percent from the field and just one of nine from the 3-point line. Zach Randolph was in uniform, but sat out his second straight game due to soreness in his right knee and is listed as questionable for tonight.
In ATS trends, the Mavs are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall and 5-0 ATS in their last five against the Western Conference, while the Grizzlies are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games but a healthy 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games playing on 2 days rest.
Head to head, the Mavs are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings in Memphis and the over is 7-1-1 in the last nine meetings.
These two teams will be looking to get back into the winner's circle after having their respective win streaks snapped over the weekend, but I'm actually thinking there could be a minor upset in this one as the Mavs were one of the hottest teams before their minor slip up against the Thunder on Sunday. Take the Mavs with the points in what should be a close one.
