Spurs Are Not Exactly Terrified Of The Grindhouse

Though FedEx Forum has not lived up to the moniker ‘The Grindhouse’ this season, the Memphis Grizzlies are a mediocre 20-14 at home; it matters not to the San Antonio Spurs either way. No matter how difficult playing in Memphis was supposed to be, the Spurs ignored it going 9-2 SU in their past 11 trips to the home of blues.

SHARK BITES
  • The Spurs are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games.
  • The Grizzlies are 3-7 SU and ATS in their last 10 games after consecutive wins.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the past 6 between the Spurs and Grizzlies.

Kawhi Leonard has been going off during the month of March, as the San Diego State alum has averaged 31.3 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.3 assists in his past seven outings. The Spurs lost to the Grizzlies the first time the two teams clashed this season but Leonard was not in the lineup due to a quad injury.

Memphis has found themselves bouncing back after a five-game skid, as the Grizzlies enter Saturday on a three-game winning streak. One of the biggest reasons for this surge has been Mike Conley’s excellent play, as the guard as averaged 23 points, 9.7 assists and 4.7 rebounds during the winning streak.
