Memphis Grizzlies vs Houston Rockets prediction

The Memphis Grizzlies are still banged up and can't string together good performances and usually fold against good teams. The Grizzlies are 9-13 ATS on the season and lost to the Rockets by 20 points last month. The Houston Rockets are one of the best covering teams in the league, with a 14-5-1 ATS record. I just can't find the confidence in the Grizzlies. Give me the Rockets and the reasonable number at home.
