The Houston Rockets are simply having their way right now, and they've won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Memphis Grizzlies, with most of those games not being close. The Memphis Grizzlies have issues keeping up with offensive minded teams that push the pace and look to score a lot, as they just don't have the athletes or the shooters to counter, and it's been like that for years. We're getting a rather cheap number here when you consider the form of both teams and the fact the Grizzlies just don't shoot well enough to hang with the Rockets.
