The Memphis Grizzlies and the Charlotte Hornets collide at the Spectrum Center on Wednesday night.
The Memphis Grizzlies have been in decent shape as they’ve split their last eight games and they will be gunning for a fourth straight victory after beating the Kings in a 118-108 win on Sunday. Ja Morant led the team with 35 points, eight rebounds and five assists, Tyus Jones added 18 points with eight assists off the bench while Steven Adams tallied 11 points with 23 rebounds and two blocks. As a team, the Grizzlies shot 46 percent from the field and 10 of 32 from the 3-point line as they went back and forth with the Kings in a close contest, until they were able to pull away late in the third quarter.
Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets have been in a major slump as they’ve lost 13 of their last 16 games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after falling just short to the Lakers in a 121-115 loss on Monday. Terry Rozier led the team with 27 points on 11 of 20 shooting, LaMelo Ball added 24 points with seven rebounds and six assists while Mason Plumlee chipped in with 18 points, 14 rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Hornets shot 45 percent from the field and 11 of 32 from the 3-point line as they struggled to get going and trailed by 15 points at halftime after leaking 38 points in the second quarter. Gordon Hayward had a rough night as he scored just eight points on two of nine shooting while Dennis Smith Jr finished with just eight points on three of 10 shooting.
Looking at the betting trends, the Grizzlies are 5-14 ATS in their last 19 road games, 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine games against a team with a losing record and 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Hornets are 1-5 ATS in their last six home games, 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games following a loss and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five games overall.
Head to head, the under is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in Charlotte and the Grizzlies are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings overall.
The Grizzlies are a little shorthanded here as the reliable Brandon Clarke has already been ruled out while Ziaire Williams is listed as questionable. The Hornets have their own injury concerns as Gordon Hayward is considered doubtful, while Cody Martin is listed as questionable. The Grizzlies have been a little below their best lately, but they’re coming into this riding a three-game win streak and they should be well-rested as they haven’t played since Sunday. The Hornets were more than competitive in their narrow loss to the Lakers on Monday, but I don’t think they have enough to hang with the Grizzlies unless they got off to a quick start. The Grizzlies are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings overall and I think that trend continues here.
