Who’s Playing

Memphis @ Los Angeles

Current Records: Memphis 26-14; Los Angeles 19-20

What to Know

The Memphis Grizzlies will square off against the Los Angeles Clippers on the road at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Crypto.com Arena. The Grizz should still be feeling good after a big win, while the Clippers will be looking to regain their footing.

You’re bound to get a positive result if you outscore your opponent every quarter, and that’s exactly how it played out for Memphis on Thursday. They were the clear victors by a 118-88 margin over the Detroit Pistons. The matchup was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Memphis had established a 90-68 advantage. Small forward Dillon Brooks and point guard Ja Morant were among the main playmakers for the Grizzlies as the former had 18 points and five assists and the latter had 22 points and six assists in addition to nine rebounds.

Meanwhile, the game between the Clippers and the Phoenix Suns on Thursday was not particularly close, with Los Angeles falling 106-89. Shooting guard Eric Bledsoe wasn’t much of a difference maker for Los Angeles; Bledsoe played for 35 minutes with 4-for-12 shooting and four turnovers.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Memphis is expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.

The Grizzlies are now 26-14 while Los Angeles sits at 19-20. A couple stats to keep an eye on: The Grizz comes into the contest boasting the most steals per game in the league at 10.2. Less enviably, the Clippers have allowed their opponents an average of 8.5 steals per game, the fourth most in the league. In other words, they will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
