Memphis Grizzlies 's Latest Performance :
The Grizzlies are off to a flying start they have now won four games in a row and find themselves tied for the best record in the West at 11-5. Leading the way for Memphis was Mike Conley as he dropped 28 points and hit a career-high seven three-pointers against Dallas. He finished 10-of-18 from the field and 1-of-2 from the line with seven assists, five rebounds, two steals, and three turnovers. Marc Gasol added 17 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, one steal and four blocks for Memphis, but missed all five of his triples. Jackson Jr. chipped in 13 points of his own he starting to be more aggressive on the floor as he is looking to drive the ball more compared to before. His scoring averaging is now up to 14 points as he has the potential to become a great all-around big man in the league. Memphis when healthy are a very tough team to beat especially when they play their grit and grind defense.
San Antonio Spurs's Latest Performance :
The Spurs are coming off a loss against the Pelicans as they now have a 0.500 record with 16 games played this season. The Spurs will be glad to return home after failing to win on the road yet again they are 2-6 on the season. Leading the way for the Spurs was DeMar DeRozan he scored 21 points he has now shot 47 percent or worse in seven consecutive games. And he did not attempt a three-pointer against the Pelicans, extending his streak to six straight games without a made three. The three ball was never part of his game but it is very concerning why he isn’t taking them. Cunningham chipped in with 19 points as he scored in double digits for the second time this season. He made all of his three-point shots as he was 5-for-5 from distance. Aldridge will look to bounce back after scoring only seven points in a losing effort he will be matched up against Gasol in his next game. The Spurs are doing better than projected after losing their starting point guard Murray at the start of the year. The Spurs are still able to find ways to win games.

Against The Spread Selection: Memphis Grizzlies
My reason for the pick :
The Grizzlies will continue to get it done with their defense as they will take down the Spurs at home. Alridge will continue to struggle with his shot as Gasol and Jackson will be a handful on defense. It seems like Memphis doesn’t get enough attention from the media mainly because of the way they play with this win on the road it might turn some heads because they might be sitting in first place of the West Conference. The Grizzlies did the right choice of picking Jackson he fits right into their culture and will only strive playing next to Marc Gasol.
