Pistons vs Grizzlies prediction

I'm not running to the window to back either losing team that has nothing to play for. The Pistons and Grizzlies aren't winning or covering numbers, and there's no motivation for any of that to start now. With that said, the Grizzlies are at home and despite fielding a G League roster, they continue to play hard and compete. The Grizzlies have also won 6 straight games against the Pistons and 9 of the last 10 meetings overall. The Grizzlies have won 2 straight games, while the Pistons have lost 9 of their last 10 games. Pick 'em spot, give me the Grizz at home.
