4* NBA SMASH
Phoenix vs. Memphis,

Score: 93 - 104
Point Spread: -5½/-108 Memphis
4* NBA SMASH on Grizzlies -5.5
After losing the season's first 2 meetings in Phoenix, expect the Grizzlies to have their revenge at home tonight. They have won 3 of their last 4 at home against the Suns with those wins coming by 17, 7 and 10 points.
Memphis is 23-12 ATS when playing with double revenge - 2 straight losses vs. opponent - over the last 2 seasons and 52-31 ATS when playing with double revenge under coach Hollins.
I like Memphis tonight because it is the superior defensive squad. It has held 10 straight opponents under the century mark and it has held its last 3 under 90 points. It only gave up 85 to the Clippers last game and that's significant because it is 8-1 ATS after allowing 85 points or less this season. It has won by an average of 8.6 points in this situation. Lay the points.
