8* Wednesday NBA MEM/ATL
Memphis vs. Atlanta,
02/06/2013 19:30 EDT,
Score: 92 - 103
Point Spread: +2/-110 Atlanta
The Atlanta Hawks host the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday. Atlanta is coming off a 114-103 loss to Indiana, while Memphis dropped their last game to Phoenix, 96-90.
The Hawks have won eight of the last 10 meetings between these teams. Atlanta is 16-8 at Philips Arena this season. The team has won five of their last seven and eight of their last 11 home games.
Josh Smith has been red-hot of late, averaging 19.2 points and 10.5 rebounds with 4.5 assists per game over his last six contests.
The leadership group in Memphis questioned the move that sent Rudy Gay out of town, and so it’s not surprising to see the team struggle in the wake of that move. The Grizzlies have had trouble finding the 17.2 points per game Gay took with him when he left town, averaging only 88.0 points in their three games since the trade.
Zach Randolph is the main player the team hoped would fill-in most of that lost scoring, but he’s hit on only 18-of-50 shots over his last five games. The Grizzlies have lost three of those five games.
The Hawks are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 meetings with the Grizzlies. Take Atlanta.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
