The Rockets have been respectable on the road this season as the team enters play with a mark of 11-9 on the highway. Memphis is under .500 at home as the club is 11-13 straight up on the season. This is a difficult scheduling spot for both teams but especially the Memphis Grizzlies. The team lacks a lot of depth as they really rely on their starters for minutes and production. This game the Grizzlies will miss the services of guard Tony Allen who is sidelined with a hand injury. The Memphis Grizzlies have had some scheduling luck this season as they have not been in too many back to back spots. In the past two back to back spots for the Grizzlies it resulted in a sluggish five point win as a six point favorite to Milwaukee and an outright 14 point road defeat as a 9 point underdog at Dallas. Memphis has played just three back to back games this year and is 0-3 ATS in all three games with two outright losses. Houston did not play well last night and it was not their pace they want to play based on the score. Look for the Rockets to run tonight and utilize their athletic ability and depth off their bench in this spot. Houston has been playing well as the loss broke a three game win streak and the team has won six of their past eight games. The Rockets have scored 103 points or greater in six of their past eight games and will force the pace to win and cover here.
With our NBA Pro Basketball pick for Saturday we will play on the Houston Rockets -2 points against the Memphis Grizzlies at online sports books.
