Memphis at Boston
Wednesday 02/16 07:05 PM Eastern
3 units on Memphis +2.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73) RESULT: WIN
Memphis has been one of the better stories through the first half of the season. They are poised to make the playoffs this season, which would be a nice accomplishment. They are one of the better defensive teams in the NBA. Good defensive teams (88-92 PPG) facing poor defensive teams (98-102 PPG) following games in which both teams scored 90 points or less are 29-6 (83%) over the last 5 seasons. Boston is 6-17 ATS versus teams who attempt 18 or more 3 point shots/game on the season over the last 3 seasons. Three stars on the Grizzlies here.
