When the Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder met last season, the Grizz took three out of the four including both home games by a total of 19 points. But this year’s edition of the Grizzlies is a far cry from the team that took the floor in 2014/15. Pau Gasol and company are 5-6 SU so far in the new campaign and were recently mired in a losing streak that saw them drop five of six games, but are coming off a pair of wins over Portland and Minnesota.
- Grizzlies are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games.
- The UNDER is 6-2 in Thunder last 8 overall.
- The Thunder are 1-4-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Memphis.
Both teams are playing the second half of back to back games, and the Thunder will be seeking for a better effort after falling to the Boston Celtics 100-85 on Sunday. OKC has been streaking so far this year, compiling winning and losing streaks of three games in the last few weeks.
Kevin Durant will not play in the contest due to a hamstring injury but told reporters he’s feeling “way better” which can only mean good things for Thunder backers.
