Free Indiana Pacers vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
The Grizzlies have lost four games in a row, but they had won four in a row prior to that and they have played much better at home.
Indiana has not been much better than Memphis over the last couple of weeks, and they will have a hard fight against the Timberwolves the night before this game.
The Memphis defense also matches up very well against the Pacers, especially since Al Jefferson will miss this game with an ankle injury.
