Memphis Grizzlies 's Latest Performance :
The Memphis Grizzlies are off to a surprising 5-2 start of the season they are coming off a win against the Jazz in their last time out. This will be their second meeting against the Suns this season as they were able to blow out the Suns by 21 points. Leading the way for Memphis was Mike Conley who had 28 points and shot 11-for-13 from the line. He’s averaging 23.0 points, 5.6 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 1.6 steals, and 2.0 triples over his last five games. He is one of the reasons why the Grizzlies are 5-2 to start the season. Marc Gasol scored 17 points (6-of-12 FGs, 3-of-6 FTs) with 10 rebounds, seven assists. He will get a chance to go up against the Ayton in his next game. It will be interesting to see how this two matchup because Ayton’s game is similar to Marc when he first came into the league.
Phoenix Suns 's Latest Performance :
Phoenix Suns lost 7th game in a row and drop to 1-7 for the season, but at least this time the effort was much better, and it was not all over after the first half. This was by far the best 1st half of the season for the Suns (52-48), after the opening night win against Dallas. Phoenix kept it close until the fourth quarter but couldn’t pull it out. Deandre Ayton grabbed a career-high 18 boards against the Raptors on Friday, adding 17 points, two dimes. He still only has one bad game in his eight outings this year it is unfortunate for him that the Suns are losing games it is not on Ayton because he is doing his best to give the Suns a chance to win. Devin Booker scored 18 points in his return he had the ball in his hands a lot and he didn’t show rust with shots all over the floor. The only let down of Booker is his defense teams always like to run an isolation play against Booker so he won’t be as effective in the offensive end. For the Suns, something has to change because what they have going on is not working.

Against The Spread Selection: Memphis Grizzlies
My reason for the pick :
The Memphis Grizzlies will win their 4th straight game while the Suns will drop their 8th game in a row. Defense will be the theme of the game as the Grizzlies are known for their defense while the Suns are not. It will be hard for the Suns to win games if they keep playing defense the way they are right now. Marc Gasol should have his way against Ayton as he will outplay the rookie in the post. It will be a fun battle between the two bigs but it should be another lopsided victory against for Memphis on the road.
