The Line: Houston Rockets -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Memphis Grizzlies invade the Toyota Center to take on the Houston Rockets tonight.
The Grizzlies had their four-game win streak snapped at San Antonio on Saturday and responded with a dominant 110-96 win over the Mavericks last night. Mike Conley led the way with 21 points and six assists, Jeff Green added 19 points and Marc Gasol had 15 points as the Grizzlies suffocated the Mavs with excellent defense, holding them to just 36 points in the first half to set up the easy win to improve to 8-7 on the season and 5-2 at home.

Meanwhile, the Rockets have lost six of their last seven and are coming off a 107-102 loss to the Knicks. James Harden led the way with 24 points and 10 assists, Terrence Jones added 18 points while Clint Capela added 16 points, but it wasn't enough to get past the Knicks who were led by Kristaps Porzingis' 24 points and seven blocks. Dwight Howard was rested for the game since it was the second game of a back to back set, but he is expected to return tonight.
In ATS trends, the Grizzlies are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five games playing on zero days rest, while the Rockets are 0-5 ATS in their last five games following a loss and 0-6 ATS in their last six home games.
Head to head, the Grizzlies are 5-2 ATS in their last meetings and the under is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings in Houston.
There was a chance that Howard would be rested tonight, but he is expected to play tonight against the impressive frontcourt of the Grizzlies. Usually the Rockets are easy money when playing at home, but they've been in been in a rut for a while now and I'm actually surprised they're favorites against the Grizzlies who have been in great form.
