The Memphis Grizzlies are on the end of a back to back, but they're a young scrappy bunch that will be eager to rebound after losing last night to a bad Kings team. The Los Angeles Lakers are capable of blowing the doors off anybody and headed into the break playing terrific basketball, but they're also 9-10-1 ATS as a double-digit favorite. I just can't leave this many points on the table with a playoff caliber team in the Memphis Grizzlies.
