The Phoenix Suns and Memphis Grizzlies are two interesting case studies from the 2015-16 NBA season. Phoenix, expecting to come into the year fighting for one of the final playoff spots out West, has been an absolute disaster and has become hands down one of the worst teams in the league.
Memphis, on the other hand, was always supposed to be a contender, and has surprisingly remained as much despite the loss of Marc Gasol for the season and the shipping out of Jeff Green and Courtney Lee at the trade deadline.
These two teams faced off a week ago, and surprisingly, Phoenix took the win, 111-106.
The Phoenix Suns enter this contest coming off a big win against the Orlando Magic, 102-84. Unfortunately for them, that’s the only sign of success they’ve had in recent memory.
Aside from the win against Orlando, the Suns’ only win since Jan. 26 came on Feb. 27 against these Grizzlies. Dating back further, this group has just three wins since Dec. 20, 2015.
Phoenix’s season is lost, and the only thing it’s playing for is a lottery pick at this point in the process.
The Suns are far better against the spread than they are straight up, but they’re just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 outings.
Somehow, someway, the Memphis Grizzlies have won seven of nine since losing their best points-per-game player in starting center Marc Gasol.
And if that wasn’t enough, this team has also played that well during the most recent seven without the squad’s best defensive presence, Tony Allen.
Since dropping the contest to Phoenix last week, Memphis has reeled off three straight. Its most recent victory coming against the playoff-hopeful Utah Jazz.
The Grizzlies are better straight up this season than they are against the spread. They’re 32-28 ATS, but they’re 7-3 ATS in their last 10.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
A 13-point spread is massive for a team scoring just over 99 points per game (24th in the league), but here’s why it’s not so crazy after all: This particular team is a defensive juggernaut, and it’s playing the Phoenix Suns.
Allowing the sixth-fewest points per game in the NBA and going up against a squad that is 22nd in scoring and 29th in points allowed pushed the contest the Grizzlies’ way.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Memphis ATS
This one will be close in terms of the spread, but home-court advantage should give Memphis the win SU and ATS.
