The game was closer with the shift in venue for the series in Game Three. Still San Antonio looks primed to complete the sweep on Sunday.
Even though the Grizzlies made up some ground the oddsmakers are going with a slightly bigger line.
Looks like they might be trying to lure us in to taking the home team who has everything on the line.
San Antonio Spurs
In game three the Spurs actually had to suit up in the fourth quarter to get the victory. It doesn’t mean that this series is suddenly going to get more interesting as they are still up 3-0, it just means a little less embarrassment for the Grizzlies.
Kawhi Leonard had a huge game for San Antonio in the win, scoring 32 points with 7 rebounds and 4 steals – plus 5 blocks. He is looking more and more like a Top 5 player all of the time. The Grizzlies haven’t really had an answer for him all series.
Lamarcus Aldridge was the only other starter to play more than 30 minutes and he chipped in a double-doubles with 16 and 10. Not a huge game and they will probably need more from him in future rounds.
Even though this one was close the defense was very good – they only gave up 87 points. They were outrebounded though and that isn’t good.
San Antonio looks good to close out the series on Sunday afternoon.
The Grizzlies got back some respect in a losing effort against San Antonio on Friday night. And they covered for backers too.
They were finally in a game in the fourth quarter and might have been able to even win it if they could just hit a shot from the outside. They made 4 threes to the Spurs 12. That it too big a gap.
ZeBo finally had a pretty good game leading all Grizzlies with 20 points. He also had 11 rebounds and was reasonably efficient at 9 fo 21.
Matt Barnes also had a double-double with 17/11 but couldn’t nail his triples to help the team win. Sadly he might be their best three point shooter.
This is a close out game so you want to think the Grizzlies can muster another strong performance. I am not sure that will be the case for this depleted club.
Given that the line is even bigger than for G3 the oddmakers are not really expecting that either. They are kind of begging you to take the Grizzlies.

Free San Antonio Spurs vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
This game is a pass for me. It is a big line and maybe Memphis fights but once the outcome is clear it will be hard for them to muster the will to stay keep it close. Should look more like games 1 and 2.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Spurs -12.5
Even if this one is close heading down the stretch it will unravel in favour of San Antonio. The only chance the Grizzlies have is to get off to a hot start.
