The New York Knicks need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The New York Knicks are averaging 104.3 points on 43.7 percent shooting and allowing 111.8 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Marcus Morris is averaging 19.2 points and 5.5 rebounds while Julius Randle is averaging 18.9 points and 9.3 rebounds.

The Grizzlies are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Knicks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 6-1 in Grizzlies last 7 overall. The under is 5-1 in Knicks last 6 overall. The Grizzlies are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Memphis Grizzlies remain one of the hotter teams in the league and need to keep taking advantage of games like this if they're going to keep chipping away at a possible playoff spot. The New York Knicks keep piling up the losses with their flawed roster and losing last night to the Charlotte Hornets doesn't provide any more confidence. Laying only one bucket with the Memphis Grizzlies seems a bit too easy, but I'll do it anyway. Backing the Knicks right now is a tough sell.
