The Line: Memphis Grizzlies +2 -- Over/Under: 203 See the Latest Odds
The Oklahoma City Thunder invade the FedEx Forum to take on the Memphis Grizzlies tonight.
The Thunder needed a win after losing two straight on the road and they were able to get that done with a 98-95 win over the Kings on Sunday. Russell Westbrook compiled a triple-double of 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists while Enes Kanter added 14 points and 10 rebounds off the bench, but with the team down by one with 0:23 left in the game, the Thunder turned to Kevin Durant who scored the team's last four points to finish with 20 points for the game. With the hard-fought win, OKC improves to 12-8 on the season and 9-3 at home.

Meanwhile, the Grizzlies have won three of their last four and are coming off a thrilling 95-93 win over the Suns. Marc Gasol led the team with 22 points, Courtney Lee added 18 while Mike Conley had 12, but with the game tied and just 0.8 seconds left in the game, the Grizzlies drew up a play that finished with an alley-oop dunk from Jeff Green to win the game. With the dramatic win, Memphis improves to 12-9 on the season and 7-4 at home.
In ATS trends, the Thunder are 2-6 ATS in their last eight road games and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games overall, while the Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last four home games.
Head to head, the Thunder are 1-5-1 ATS in the last seven meetings in Memphis and the home team is 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings.
The Grizzlies and the Thunder last met on Nov. 16 and it was the Grizzlies who won by 122-114 thanks to a season-high 29 points from Mario Chalmers. However, the Thunder were without Durant at the time so I'm expecting them to level the score with him back in the lineup and fresh off a clutch performance.
