Jonas Valanciunas had 20 points and 11 rebounds for the Grizzlies in a losing cause against the Celtics, who shot 53.8%. The Hornets are 3-9 ATS their last 12 games as home favorites dating to last season, and they don't figure to shoot a high percentage two games in a row. Memphis has won and covered the last two meetings with Charlotte. Play the Grizzlies.
