The Memphis Grizzlies picked up a victory the last time they took on the Oklahoma City Thunder. On Tuesday night, they welcome the Thunder to the FedExForum in Tennessee.
Oklahoma City was without Kevin Durant in that one, but Russell Westbrook supplied a big night in his stead.
With all of their playoff meetings, no teams have played one another more often over the last five years than these two teams, and both teams are looking to break out of the pack in the middle part of the Western Conference standings by stringing some wins together here.
Oklahoma City Thunder:
The Thunder are hitting on 29.6 percent of their attempts from beyond the arc in their last four games. Russell Westbrook has been a contributing factor in that, as the star point guard hit on 3 of 19 attempts from three-point range in those contests.
Durant is 3 for 13 from three-points range over his last two games, turning the ball over 15 times in that span, including 10 turnovers in Sunday’s 98-95 win over Sacramento.
He did, however, hit on a go-ahead jumper with 23 seconds to play in that one, and knocked down a pair of free throws inside the final five seconds.
The Grizzlies have won three of the last four meetings between these teams despite shooting 24.1 percent, hitting on 13 of 54 attempts from beyond the arc in those games. For the season the team is shooting 30.8 percent from deep – the worst mark in the NBA.
The Grizzlies picked up a 95-93 win over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday.
The fateful play in that one came with just 0.5 seconds remaining when Courtney Lee inbounded the basketball to Jeff Green for the game deciding dunk.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The under is 6-0 in the Thunder’s last six games overall.
- The under is 7-0 in the Thunder’s last seven games following a win.
- The under is 4-1 in the Thunder’s last five games against an opponent with a winning record.
- The under is 35-15-1 in the Grizzlies’ last 51 home games.
- The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these teams.
Free NBA Prediction:
The Thunder have compiled a 3-5 record on the road this season, so we can expect the Grizzlies to dictate the tempo in this one, and Memphis is a team that likes to slow the pace.
That will help contribute to the playoff-type atmosphere in this one.

These teams have seen a lot of one another in recent years, and that’s going to make it difficult for either offense to come up with any tricks, which is a major advantage to each team’s defense.
This should be an easy one for the scorekeepers.
