<p>The Memphis Grizzlies swept their four-game road trip over the past week, collecting at 3-0-1 ATS against Western Conference foes.</p> <p><img id="ctl00_head_ArticleAdministrator_picturePreview_imgSelectedPicture" alt="Image preview" class="imgSelectedPicture article-image" src="/picks-pictures/zach_randolph_display_image.jpg" style="font-size:1em" /><b><a href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/nba-betting-memphis-grizzlies-offseason-team-report-a-32676/" title="Grizzlies Futures" target="_blank">Grizzlies, Randolph</a> cash in O.T.</b></p> <p>Memphis’ latest triumph came in Wednesday’s 88-81 overtime victory over the Golden State Warriors, prevailing as a five-point underdog. The Grizzlies erased an early 12-point deficit, while escaping the duel with just six turnovers.</p> <p>Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph notched team-highs of 21 points and 12 boards, picking up a fifth straight double-double. Memphis’ Marc Gasol logged four of his side’s six blocks, while hitting 6-of-6 free throws en route to 18 points.</p> <p>The battle’s combined 169 points plunged UNDER the ‘total’ of 189, with Memphis held to a 38.6 percent night of field shooting. Grizzlies mates Tayshaun Prince and Kosta Koufos logged two steals each, while guard Mike Conley came away with four assists.</p> <p><b>Spurs, Splitter hold off Celtics</b></p> <p><a href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/nba-picks-san-antonio-spurs-team-futures-odds-a-33612/" title="Futures" target="_blank">San Antonio reeled off an eighth straight</a> victory on the same card, topping the Boston Celtics, 104-93. The Spurs saw six members of their roster reach double figures, while falling short of cashing as a 14 ½-point home favorite.</p> <p>Spurs center Tiago Splitter logged his season’s first double-double, finishing with 11 points and 10 rebounds. The Brazil native knocked down 4-of-4 shots from the floor, while uniting with mate Tim Duncan for three assists each.</p> <p>San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard logged five of his squad’s 12 steals, while he and his mates outscored Boston in the paint, 48-36.

Early wagers on the Spurs and OVER saw the numbers rise a ‘hook’ to 1 ½ and 186.</p> <p>I am adding Memphis to<a href="/nba-basketball/" title="Free NBA Betting" target="_blank"> Friday’s NBA picks</a>, backing Randolph and Co. as a home dog.</p> <p>The Grizzlies should open up some shooting with a return to FedExForum, picking up octane from its recent road stretch. Memphis has connected at 48.8 percent from its floor, while cashing at 10-4 ATS in the team’s last 14 spots that followed a victory.</p> <p>San Antonio takes a step up in class here compared to its last four road victories, unlikely to top the span’s 105.5 PPG. The Spurs have logged a 0-4 spread record in their last four matchups against clubs with winning records, while going 1-5 ATS in its last six affairs with Western Conference rivals.</p> <p>Memphis is also out for revenge here after last month’s 101-94 defeat to the Spurs, trailing the duel by as many as 21 points. The Grizzlies gave up 52.6 percent field shooting, with Gregg Popovich’s club shooting 11-for-20 from three-point land.</p> <p>Look for a tighter affair here on the Grizzlies’ floor, with Randolph and Co. coming out on top this time.</p> <p><strong>Free Pick:</strong> <a href=";book=willhillinarticle" title="Will Hill" target="_blank">Memphis Grizzlies +1 ½ at Bet365</a></p>
