The Memphis Grizzlies battle the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The Thunder were going for a fifth straight win on Monday night, but instead fell to the Kings by 116-104 at home. Serge Ibaka led the scoring with 25 points, Russell Westbrook added 17 points and 15 assists while Anthony Morrow had 20 points, but the Thunder just couldn't find their offense in the 48-38 second half dominated by the Kings. Kevin Durant sat out the game with a toe injury, did not practice Tuesday and his status for tonight's game is unclear.

Meanwhile, the Grizzlies have won three of their last four and are coming off a 91-78 win over the Trailblazers. Zach Randolph led the team in scoring with 26 points and 18 rebounds off the bench while Courtney Lee chipped in with 16 points as the Grizzlies won easily, despite shooting just 38 percent from the field. With the win, Memphis improves to 19-17 on the season and 8-11 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Grizzlies are 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight road games and 1-5 ATS in their last six games against a team above .600, while the Thunder are 15-6-1 ATS in their last 22 games following a double-digit loss at home and 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall.
Head to head, the Grizzlies are 2-5-1 ATS in the last eight meetings in Oklahoma City and the home team is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings overall.
The Thunder certainly didn't look too good in their loss on Monday, but they always seem to bounce back after a home loss so I'm taking them to pull away late and come out with the win tonight.
