The Phoenix Suns and Memphis Grizzlies meet Monday in NBA action at the FedExForum.

The Phoenix Suns look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 110.5 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 106.7 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 23 points and 4.3 assists while Mikal Bridges is averaging 15.1 points and 5.4 rebounds. Chris Paul is the third double-digit scorer and Deandre Ayton is dishing 1.8 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 36.7 percent from beyond the arc and 82.6 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.4 rebounds per game.

The Memphis Grizzlies look for another win to build on a four-game winning streak. The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 106.5 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 107.6 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 24 points and 6.3 assists while Dillon Brooks is averaging 16.2 points and 4.1 rebounds. Jonas Valanciunas is the third double-digit scorer and Brandon Clarke is grabbing 6.2 rebounds. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 76.7 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.8 rebounds per game.


The Suns are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games and 17-5 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The Grizzlies are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Suns last 5 overall. The under is 20-7 in Grizzlies last 27 overall. The Suns are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Memphis and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Phoenix Suns have still been one of the more profitable teams in the league dating back to the NBA bubble, but the defense has slipped a bit and they allow teams to hang around too often. The Memphis Grizzlies have not only won four straight games, but Ja Morant is back on the court. With Ja leading the way, these young Grizzlies play with a pep in its step and are a dangerous team. I'll grab the free bucket in what should be an entertaining contest.
