Portland Trail Blazers vs Memphis Grizzlies prediction

I'm not running to the window to back either the Trail Blazers or Grizzlies, especially in the favorite role. However, somebody has to win, and the Grizzlies have been far more competitive and show more signs of life. The Portland Trail Blazers have lost 9 straight games and are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games. The Grizzlies aren't winning, but their games are far more competitive. The Grizzlies are also 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games. We're only laying a bucket and if forced to pick I'm going to side with the team that's still playing hard. That's clearly the Grizzlies in this spot. The Trail Blazers feel more and more like a team that's counting down the days until the off season.
