Randy’s Free Pick

The Memphis Grizzlies are winning their last 5 games by an average of 10.8 points, and that includes a loss in their last effort. The Grizzlies are not only winning games, but they're blowing teams off the court most nights. The Phoenix Suns are still dealing with oodles of injuries, and it doesn't help they're on the end of a back to back. Give me the Grizzlies and the chalk, as I want nothing to do with the Suns in this spot.
