The Grizzlies are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Nets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 6-13-1 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Even without Gasol, the Grizzlies are the better team the Nets on both ends of the court. Brooklyn has its eyes set on a top five pick and has covered just six of its last 20 games despite getting a lot of points most nights. I have no choice but to back Memphis in this spot.
