The Memphis Grizzlies and Atlanta Hawks meet Wednesday in NBA action at the State Farm Arena.

The Memphis Grizzlies look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 101.6 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 103.7 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Mike Conley is averaging 20.6 points and 6.3 assists while Jonas Valanciunas is averaging 18.5 points and 8.8 rebounds. Avery Bradley is the third double-digit scorer and Jaren Jackson Jr. is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 33.7 percent from beyond the arc and 77 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 35.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41 rebounds per game. The Memphis Grizzlies have lost five of their last seven road games.

The Atlanta Hawks could use a win after losing seven of their last 11 games. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 112.4 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 118.7 points on 47.4 percent shooting. John Collins is averaging 19.8 points and 9.8 rebounds while Trae Young is averaging 18.3 points and 7.8 assists. Kent Bazemore is the third double-digit scorer and Dewayne Dedmon is grabbing 7.3 rebounds. The Atlanta Hawks are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 75.3 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Hawks are allowing 36.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.9 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Hawks have split their last six home games.

The Grizzlies are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 road games, 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 2 days rest and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Hawks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The road team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the underdog is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Hawks last 7 overall. The under is 7-2 in Grizzlies last 9 road games.

The Memphis Grizzlies have been drastically improved since the all-star break, but they have yet to translate that success on the road where they've lost five of their last seven and are losing by an average of 4.9 points while shooting under 45 percent from the field. The Atlanta Hawks continue to pile up the points offensively and have the young legs that could give these Grizzlies some fits in a track meet. The Grizzlies have had issues over the years keeping up with teams that like to push the pace and score in the 120s. The home team has also won six of the last nine meetings between the Grizzlies and Hawks. I'll lay the bucket.

Pick:
Atlanta Hawks -2
