The San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies meet Tuesday in NBA action at the FedExForum.

The San Antonio Spurs could use a victory here to snap a four-game losing streak. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 112.4 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 111.4 points on 47 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 21.6 points and 6.2 assists while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 21 points and nine rebounds. Rudy Gay is the third double-digit scorer and Bryn Forbes is dishing 2.1 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 40.6 percent from beyond the arc and 82.4 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.1 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Spurs have lost five of their last six road games.

The Memphis Grizzlies look for another victory after splitting their last eight games. The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 100.3 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 103.4 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Mike Conley is averaging 20.1 points and 6.4 assists while Jaren Jackson Jr. is averaging 13.9 points and 4.7 rebounds. CJ Miles is the third double-digit scorer and Justin Holiday is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 33.8 percent from beyond the arc and 75.9 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 35.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.5 rebounds per game. The Memphis Grizzlies have won three of their last four home games.

The Spurs are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Grizzlies are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The road team is 5-2-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings and the over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Memphis. The under is 20-8 in Grizzlies last 28 overall. The over is 4-0 in Spurs last 4 overall.

The San Antonio Spurs are back in one of these weird funks where they can't play defense, as they've lost four straight and are being outscored by an average of 15.6 points while allowing 52.8 percent shooting in their last five games. The Memphis Grizzlies have found ways to win games recently, but they're still the Memphis Grizzlies, one of the more banged up rosters in the league and a team that's 5-9 ATS this season when an underdog of five or less points. The San Antonio Spurs have won seven of the last nine games against the Grizzlies. If the Spurs can't win this game comfortably and stop the bleeding, there's some serious issues in San Antonio. 

Pick:
San Antonio Spurs -4
