Ja Morant is averaging 17.6 points and 6.9 assists while Jaren Jackson Jr. is averaging 16.9 points and 4.7 rebounds.

The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 37 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46 rebounds per game. The Memphis Grizzlies have split their last eight road games.
The Los Angeles Clippers need a win here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 115.7 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 110.3 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 27.2 points and 7.5 rebounds while Paul George is averaging 21.7 points and 3.9 assists. Lou Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Montrezl Harrell is grabbing 7.1 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 78.7 percent from the free throw line.

The over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in L.A and 10-3 in the last 13 meetings.
The Memphis Grizzlies beat the Clippers last month on the road, scoring 140 points, and they're a young team fighting to better their odds for a playoff spot. The Los Angeles Clippers have lost their last three games and are still dealing with a questionable PG13 and Patrick Beverley. While the Grizzlies probably won't have similar success as they had in the past meeting, this is too many points to pass up when going up against a struggling and banged up Clippers squad. Give me the free buckets.
