The Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies meet Friday in NBA action at the FedExForum. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 112.8 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 112.6 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Paul George is averaging 23.8 points and 6.1 rebounds, while Kawhi Leonard is averaging 23.7 points and 6.3 rebounds. Norman Powell is the third double-digit scorer and Russell Westbrook is grabbing 5 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 78.2 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 36.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.3 rebounds per game.

The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 116.8 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 112.4 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 26.8 points and 8.1 assists, while Desmond Bane is averaging 21.2 points and 5 rebounds. Jaren Jackson Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Dillon Brooks is grabbing 3.2 rebounds. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 73 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.6 rebounds per game.

The Clippers are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Grizzlies are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 Friday games and 43-21-2 ATS in their last 66 home games. The over is 4-0 in Clippers last 4 overall. The under is 16-5-1 in Grizzlies last 22 overall. The Clippers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Memphis and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Memphis Grizzlies are dangerous at home, and they're going to get the benefit of the doubt because of that. However, the Los Angeles Clippers are far from a pushover, they just beat the Grizzlies on the road a couple of days ago, and they're still playing for seeding. This line is a bit strange, other than the Grizzlies being dominant at home. It's a bit disrespectful toward the Clippers. Give me the points.

Randy’s Pick Los Angeles Clippers +6.5
