Look for the Grizzlies, playing at home in Memphis, to at least muster enough play this evening to cover the near-double digit spread against the Phoenix Suns.
The Grizzlies have fared rather well as home dogs off back-to-back losses this season (7-2 against the spread). Tonight they catch Phoenix looking dead ahead to San Antonio as the enter off a huge win over Dallas, a game in which they shot 65% from the floor for the game, including 86% in the fourth quarter!
Memphis (19-56) is having a season to forget while Phoenix (55-18) is building towards a playoff run that they hope is long remembered. The two teams have met three times this season, with the Suns winning all three and covering two.
Look for Memphis to hang a cover against the disinterested Suns here tonight.
