5* WESTERN CONFERENCE GAME OF THE MONTH
Oklahoma City vs. Memphis,
01/10/2012 20:00 EDT,
Score: 100 - 95
Point Spread: -3/-101 Oklahoma City
The Thunder went into Memphis and beat the Grizzlies 98-95 back in late December. While some might believe the Grizzlies are out for revenge. Memphis will be playing this game without power forward Zach Randolph and point guard Mike Conley. While Conley didn't play in the first game either, Randolph had 24 points and 12 rebounds against the Thunder. Without Randolph the Grizzlies have lost two straight, including an ugly 85-94 loss at Utah.
Oklahoma City brings it every time they take the floor, and I look for them to jump all over the depleted Grizzlies and easily cover the spread.
The Thunder are 20-13 ATS in their last 33 games at Memphis and are a solid 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a road favorite of 0.5-4.5. BET OKLAHOMA CITY -3!
