The Line: Memphis Grizzlies +2.5 -- Over/Under: 186 See the Latest Odds
The San Antonio Spurs invade the FedEx Forum to battle the Memphis Grizzlies tonight.
The Spurs needed to bounce back after having their five-game win streak snapped by the Bulls in their last outing and they did that with ease, beating the Bucks by 95-70 last night. Tim Duncan led the scoring with 16 points and 10 rebounds while Patty Mills and Kawhi Leonard added 14 points each as the Spurs took control of the game early and never relinquished. Defensively, the Spurs did a great job of limiting the Bucks to just 33.8 percent and a total of just 70 points, easily the lowest total for an opponent this season. With the win, San Antonio improves to 15-4 on the season and a perfect 10-0 at home.

Meanwhile, the Grizzlies have won four of their last five overall and could make it three straight wins after beating the Pelicans by 113-104 on Tuesday. Marc Gasol has been averaging a solid 16.1 ppg on the season, but exploded for a season-high 38 points on 11 of 22 shooting while Zach Randolph added 14 points as the Grizzlies rallied from an early double-digit deficit to improve to 11-8 on the season and 5-5 on the road where they've won three of their last four.
In ATS trends, the Spurs are 8-0 ATS in their last eight games playing on zero days rest and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall, while the Grizzlies are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven against the Western Conference.
Head to head, the Spurs are 11-4 ATS in the last 15 meetings overall and 5-2 ATS in the last sveen meetings in Memphis.
The Spurs played just last night so there's always the fatigue factor, but no starter played anywhere near their usual minutes so I'm definitely taking the red-hot Spurs to keep on piling up the wins.
