Grizzlies Looking for a Miracle in Memphis

Zach Randolph Memphis Grizzlies

The most lopsided first-round series of the NBA playoffs is without a doubt San Antonio-Memphis. With Games 1 and 2 in their back pocket, the Spurs will be looking to keep that dominance going against a beleaguered Memphis club on Friday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Spurs' last five games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 10 of the Grizzlies' last 14 games with a closing total of 181.0 or less.
  • The Spurs are 42-8 SU in their last 50 games after a win.

The first two games of the series have been decided by an average of 29 points. The seventh-seeded Grizzlies had their worst offensieve output ever in Tuesday’s 94-68 setback, just days after Game 1’s 106-74 loss, which was the franchise’s worst ever playoff defeat.

Matt Barnes told the media his team is “coming to a gunfight with some spoons,” which may actually be an understatement at this point. As of Friday morning, San Antonio was listed as 12-point road favorites – the largest an NBA team has ever been favored away from home in the postseason.

San Antonio is far from a safe bet as huge favorites as of late, evidenced by Tim Duncan and company going 2-9 ATS in their last 11 when favored as 11.5 points or more.
