The San Antonio Spurs will welcome the Memphis Grizzlies to town tonight who are looking for their fifth straight win. For complete odds on this game please visit Top Bet sportsbook.
The Grizzlies have been very impressive lately with four very impressive wins over the Heat, Mavs, Clippers, and the Suns. The scoring for the most part for the Grizzlies has been pretty balanced during the streak which has contributed greatly to the winning streak. In the last game however, Rudy Gay scored a game high 32 points in a victory over the Suns. The victory vs. the Suns comes at a time where Memphis is striving for a playoff position.
The Spurs on the other hand have had a solid season overall, but have hit a bit of a speed bump in the last two games. They have dropped the last two games to the Jazz and the Lakers. Their big stars all sat out the game vs. the Jazz, but they were all back for the game vs. the Lakers last night. The Lakers were playing without Kobe Bryant and still beat the Spurs by a score of 98-84. The Spurs were outrebounded by the bigger Lakers by a staggering 60-33 mark. The Lakers just seemed like they wanted it more and it showed as they outrebounded the Spurs 16-1 on the offensive glass as well.
The Spurs have won all three games vs. the Grizzlies this season. They are 26-6 straight up vs. the Grizzlies in their 32 games played in San Antonio. The Grizzlies are 10-3-1 ATS in the last 14 meetings between the two teams and are 5-1-1 in the last 7 ATS in San Antonio.
If this was last week we would be all over the Spurs, but they have struggled recently which is making us cool on them a bit. While we think the effort of the Spurs will be better at home tonight, we cannot just ignore how well the Grizzlies have been playing against good teams lately. Take the Grizz and the points in this one but before making the bet read a sports book review.
