What to Know

The Grizzlies are 10-0 against the Spurs since February of 2021, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Saturday. The Memphis Grizzlies’ road trip will continue as they head out to face the San Antonio Spurs at 8:00 p.m. ET on November 18th at Frost Bank Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W’.

It’s hard to win when your three-point shooting is a whole 25.2% worse than the opposition, a fact the Grizzlies found out the hard way on Tuesday. Their bruising 134-107 defeat to Los Angeles might stick with them for a while. The Grizzlies were in a tough position after the first half, with the score already sitting at 74-51.

Meanwhile, the Spurs’ recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Friday after their seventh straight loss. They fell 129-120 to Sacramento. The contest was a 62-62 toss-up at halftime, but the Spurs was outscored by the Kings in the second.

The losing side was boosted by Zach Collins, who scored 28 points along with 8 rebounds and 3 steals.

Memphis bumped their record down to 2-9 with that defeat, which was their third straight on the road. As for San Antonio, they continue to see their hopes of redeeming themselves for a poor last season fade as the team sits at a 3-9 record this season.

Not only did both teams lose their last games, but neither team managed to cover the spread. Looking forward, the Grizzlies are expected to win a tight contest, barring any buzzer beaters. This contest will be San Antonio’s 11th straight as the underdogs (so far over this stretch they are 2-7-1 against the spread).

The Grizzlies didn’t have too much breathing room in their game against the Spurs when the teams last played back in March, but they still walked away with a 126-120 victory. Will the Grizzlies repeat their success, or do the Spurs have a better game plan this time around? We’ll find out soon enough.
