The Grizzlies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 vs. NBA Pacific. The Warriors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Grizzlies are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
I'm not laying this much chalk in the last game of the regular season. Instead, I'm backing the over. This is one of those games where the Warriors should shoot well from the field, and the Grizzlies will have tired legs after playing late against the Clippers. Expect a ton of fireworks.
