The Memphis Grizzlies have found ways to turn things around this week, but I still don't trust them against above average teams without Ja. The Philadelphia 76ers are rested and as healthy as they've been in a while. Seeing the Grizzlies dig deep and pull off an upset wouldn't shock anybody, but the 76ers should win this game. I'll lay the bucket with the road team.
