The Phoenix Suns have already been disappointing up to this point, but they're a banged up team that can't be trusted in this spot. There's a reason why this line has shifted so much. The Memphis Grizzlies are playing their best ball of the season right now, which includes winning their last 5 games by an average of 11.4 points. The Grizzlies usually get up for games like this, and the Suns are dealing with injuries cross the board. I'll lay the bucket.
