The Memphis Grizzlies invade the Bradley Center to take on the Milwaukee Bucks tonight.
The Grizzlies improved to .500 on the season with a 108-107 win at the Buzzer against the Nuggets on Tuesday. Vince Carter led the scoring with 20 points with five assists in 31 minutes off the bench, Zach Randolph added 16 points while Mike Conley had 10 points, seven assists and five steals but with 0.7 seconds left on the clock, it was Marc Gasol who tipped in an inbounds pass at the buzzer to get the win. Memphis is now 4-4 on the season and 4-2 at home where they had lost two straight before Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the Bucks will be looking to avoid a third straight loss after losing to the previously winless Pelicans by 112-106 on Thursday night. Jabari Parker was in a groove early and led the way with 33 points and Giannis Antetokuonmpo added 17 points with 10 rebounds, but while the Bucks were solid on offense, they just didn't have an answer for Anthony Davis who made the most of triple threat situations to pour in 32 points on 12 of 25 shooting. With the loss, Milwaukee falls to 4-4 overall and 3-2 at home.
In ATS trends, the Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall and 0-8 ATS in their last eight road games, while the Bucks are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games overall.
Head to head, the home team is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings and the underdog is 13-5 ATS in the last 18 meetings.
The Bucks were playing solid basketball but their last two losses has me feeling a little apprehensive, so while the Grizzlies haven't been in the best form themselves, I'm sticking with Gasol and company to get the job done on the road tonight on the back of the momentum from their Tuesday win.
