The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 37.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.6 rebounds per game. The Memphis Grizzlies have split their last six road games.
The Phoenix Suns look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 115.7 points on 46.2 percent shooting and allowing 114 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 25.5 points and 6.3 assists while Deandre Ayton is averaging 18 points and 11 rebounds. Kelly Oubre Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Aron Baynes is grabbing 5.6 rebounds. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 36.5 percent from beyond the arc and 80.2 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 36.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.4 rebounds per game. The Phoenix Suns have lost four of their last five home games.
The Grizzlies are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up win and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win. The Suns are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Grizzlies last 4 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 4-0 in Suns last 4 home games. The under is 12-4 in the last 16 meetings in Phoenix.
The Memphis Grizzlies are just 4-6 ATS on the road where they lose by an average of 9.1 points and allow 47.2 precent shooting. The Phoenix Suns are coming off a nice blowout win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, and they're 7-6 ATS at home this season while also a solid 5-2 ATS when favored by at least three points. The Phoenix Suns can be a bit hit or miss in their effort overall, but backing the Grizzlies, especially on the road in their current form, isn't an option. I'll eat the chalk with the Suns on their home court.
