Potential First-Round Playoff Preview in San Antonio Tonight

The Memphis Grizzlies have had some major issues playing away from Tennessee of late, and they’ll be in tough to buck that trend tonight when they travel to the Lone Star State to do battle with the San Antonio Spurs in a potential first-round playoff preview.

Shark Bites
  • The Grizzlies are 2-10 SU in their last 12 games against the Spurs.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Grizzlies' last eight games against the Spurs.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of the Spurs' last eight games at home.

Those aforementioned road issues have greatly hindered the Grizzlies’ chances of catching the sixth-place Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference standings as they’re currently a half-game behind the Thunder. All-star center Marc Gasol will likely miss his sixth straight game with a foot injury – an ailment that’s clearly impacted Memphis in a big way.

San Antonio has won seven of its last eight games and is locked into the second seed in the Western Conference, 3 1/2 games behind the Golden State Warriors with six games remaining. The Spurs got a solid effort from point guard Tony Parker, who scored 21 points in Sunday’s 109-103 victory over the Utah Jazz for his first 20-point effort since January 5.

The Grizzlies have claimed two of the first three meetings between the squads on the year, holding the Spurs to an average of only 89 points.
