Dillon Brooks is the third double-digit scorer and Jonas Valanciunas is grabbing 10.9 rebounds. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 76.7 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 37 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.2 rebounds per game. The Memphis Grizzlies have lost four straight road games.
The Atlanta Hawks need a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 111.5 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 119.1 points on 47.6 percent shooting. Trae Young is averaging 29.8 points and 9.4 assists while John Collins is averaging 21.4 points and 10.3 rebounds. De'Andre Hunter is the third double-digit scorer and Kevin Huerter is grabbing 4.1 rebounds. The Atlanta Hawks are shooting 33.2 percent from beyond the arc and 79.1 percent from the free throw line.

The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Hawks are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home favorite, 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite. The under is 4-1 in Grizzlies last 5 overall. The over is 19-7 in Hawks last 26 home games. The Grizzlies are 6-13 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Atlanta. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
The Memphis Grizzlies showed some signs of life in a blowout win over the Lakers, but this is still a young team that's lost six of their last nine and is losing their last five games by an average of 10.6 points while shooting just 42.9 percent from the field. The Atlanta Hawks are playing some of their more consistent ball of the season, and they're a profitable 19-11-1 against the spread at home. Usually a playoff team and free points against a non-playoff team would be a no-brainer, but the Grizzlies are in brutal form right now. I'll lay the bucket with the Hawks at home.
