Memphis Grizzlies vs Los Angeles Clippers prediction

The Memphis Grizzlies and the points are intriguing, but they're on the end of a back to back and still dealing with injuries. Ja Morant didn't play last night in Denver due to an illness, and he's questionable for this game as well. It's hard to back the Grizzlies if they're not going to have their star player. The Los Angeles Clippers are playing their best ball of the season, and they're 12-4 SU at home. Give me the Clippers in a comfortable home victory.
