It was a grudge game they had circled by the Grizzlies as the Clippers came into Memphis on Mother’s Day last year in a game seven and knock Memphis out of the playoffs. It was such a disappointing result for the Grizzlies. They shot just 30% from the field in the loss. Zach Randolph led Memphis with 15 points and 12 rebounds. The Grizzlies looked a step slow and drained from energy. Memphis is second in the league in scoring defense as they allow just 90 points a game.

They are coming off the 106-88 home win on Sunday to the Minnesota Timberwolves as a -12 ½ point betting favorite. The total landed under 199 points. The Spurs shoot lights out in the win hitting on 56% from the field. They held a slumping Timberwolves team just 37% shooting. Tony Parker scored 20 points and dished out 6 assists as the point guard hits on 10 of 15. They survived 18 turnovers in the win. Manu Ginobili will not play due to a hamstring problem and could be out two weeks. San Antonio is a top four team in four critical categories offensively in points scored, field goal percentage, free throw shooting and three point shooting.
