The Philadelphia 76ers and Memphis Grizzlies meet Monday in NBA action at the FedExForum. The Philadelphia 76ers look for a win after winning seven of their last 12 games. The Memphis Grizzlies look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games.
The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 106.5 points on 45.8 percent shooting and allowing 105.9 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 24.2 points and 4.2 assists, while Tobias Harris is averaging 18.9 points and 3.3 assists. Tyrese Maxey is the third double-digit scorer and Seth Curry is dishing 2.9 assists. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc and 81.7 percent from the free throw line. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 35 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.3 rebounds per game.
The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 110.4 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 109.9 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 24.1 points and 6.8 assists, while Dillon Brooks is averaging 17.7 points and 3.1 rebounds.

The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 74.2 percent from the free throw line.

The 76ers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Monday games and 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Grizzlies are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Monday games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 5-1-1 in 76ers last 7 overall. The under is 4-1 in Grizzlies last 5 overall.
I'm still not sold on the Philadelphia 76ers just yet, but they are getting healthier, and maybe their Saturday win over the Warriors is a turning point moving forward. The Memphis Grizzlies are finding ways to win and are playing well, but the injuries are starting to pile up even more. With Morant out, Steven Adams is doubtful and Jackson is questionable. This is a game the 76ers should win give the Grizzlies injury situation that isn't getting any better.
