The Grizzlies are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The Memphis Grizzlies are dealing with a lot of injuries, and they're also still going through the Morant nonsense. The Los Angeles Lakers are getting the best out of AD as of late, and they need to keep winning if they're going to sneak into the playoffs. The Lakers simply can't afford to allow games like this to get away. I'll lay the bucket with the home team.
