NBA FREE PICK: Memphis Grizzlies +8

Memphis vs. Oklahoma City, 04/02/2012 20:00
Point Spread: +8/-106 Memphis

NBA FREE PICK: Memphis Grizzlies +8

The Thunder played with some serious intensity in their showdown with the Bulls on Sunday afternoon. Oklahoma City jumped out to an early lead and cruised to 92-78 win. Prior to that game, the Thunder played a big game on the road against the Lakers.

This will be Oklahoma City's third game in four days. It's going to be extremely hard for this team to bring that same intensity against Memphis. The Thunder have already beat the Grizzlies 3 times this season. This is a prime let down spot.

At the same time. Memphis will be extremely motivated in a huge revenge spot. I think the Grizzlies are a team to watch out for down the stretch. Memphis just recently got back All-Star power forward Zach Randolph, and its only a matter of time before he really gets going.

The Grizzlies come in having won 3 of 4, which includes a 102-96 win at the Lakers and a 99-95 win at Milwaukee. Another thing to keep in mind, all three of the Thunder's wins in this series have come by 7-points or less. Memphis is 32-13-1 ATS in their last 46 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. BET THE GRIZZLIES!
