Spurs Go for Sweep Versus Grizz Sunday

Kawhi Leonard San Antonio Spurs NBA Playoffs

Due to an injury list as long as it is depressing, the Memphis Grizzlies have been a patchwork squad that hobbled their way into the postseason riding minutes from the likes of Jordan Farmar and Matt Barnes. Mercifully, the Grizz can be put out of the misery when the San Antonio Spurs look to complete the sweep in Game 4 of their opening round playoff series Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The favorite is 7-2 ATS in the previous nine meetings.
  • UNDER is 5-1 in the Grizzlies’ last six games overall.
  • The Spurs are just 1-4 ATS in their last five road games.

Online book Bovada is presently offering the Spurs as 13-point road favorites for Sunday’s contest. The total is pegged at 183 with both OVER and UNDER priced at -110.

All three games of this series have finished UNDER the closing total with that number decreasing with each outing. The two teams have combined to average a paltry 175 points per game in the opening three contests of the series.

The Grizzlies’ injuries have been glaring this series as the team just can’t get points with the likes of Mike Conley and Marc Gasol sidelined. Through three games, Memphis has averaged just 76.3 points per outing, but were much better at home in Game 3 as they put up 87 points.

Healthy or not, the Grizzlies have always had a hard time with the Spurs. Memphis had lost five straight meetings with San Antonio entering this series and now that that has been extended to eight, it will take nothing short of a miracle to end it Sunday.
