Two teams with identical 3-3 records will face off this afternoon as the Trail Blazers continue their road trip with a stop in Memphis to take on the Grizzlies. The Blazers won and covered the last time they were small road favorites and Memphis will have to tighten the crank on their defensive play if they hope to keep their explosive offense at bay.
- The total has gone OVER in 8 of Portland’s last 9 games.
- Memphis is 7-2 against the spread in its last 9 games at home.
- Memphis has not scored more than 90 points in all of their last 3 games.
Portland is a team that thrives on their guard play but Memphis is one of the better perimeter defending teams in the association. If the Blazers are going to be successful in this one, they will need run play a little more through their – fairly weak – frontcourt.
If the Grizzlies manage to shut down Damian Lillard they are likely to come out on top. In the Trail Blazer’s three wins this year, their starting point guard has scored 37 or more points. In their three losses, however, he has scored 31 or fewer and Memphis has not allowed an opposing point guard to score more than 31 points on them this season.
Additionally, all three of the Grizzlies’ covers this season have come within the walls of the FedEXForum.
