The Memphis Grizzlies hope to avoid getting swept on their home court. The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 76.3 points on 37.7 percent shooting and allowing 98.7 points on 48.2 percent shooting. Zach Randolph is averaging 12.3 points and 9.3 rebounds while Lance Stephenson is averaging 8.7 points and 1.3 assists. Matt Barnes is dishing 2.3 assists and Vince Carter is grabbing four rebounds.

The Grizzlies are allowing 47.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.3 rebounds per game. The Memphis Grizzlies have lost five of their last six home games.
The Spurs are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. Western Conference and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The Grizzlies are 21-8 ATS in their last 29 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games. The Spurs are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Memphis and 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings overall.
The Grizzlies put up their best fight in game three and still nearly lost by double digits. Memphis simply has nothing for the Spurs without Marc Gasol or Mike Conley. I'm not a fan of laying double-digit chalk in playoff games, but there's no reason to back the Grizzlies with their current roster.
