Los Angeles Clippers have a 25-11 record (21-15 against the spread) and are sitting in the third place of the West.

Memphis Grizzlies have a 13-22 record (16-18-1 against the spread) and are sitting in the third to last place of the West. They have lost two of their last three matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Kings with a 123-128 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Ja Morant with 17.6 ppg, adding a team high 6.5 assists per game. He is followed by Jaren Jackson Jr. with 17.6 ppg and 4.8 rebounds per game.

Both teams have a similar field goal percentage (46.4% to 46.1%), while Clippers have a better 3-point percentage (36% to 35.5%). Clippers are better in boards grabbed (48 to 45.1), while Grizzlies are better in dimes made (27.3 to 23.4) and both teams are almost equal in turnovers committed (15.8 to 15.9). Bookmakers give the Clippers a -11 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy home win against an inferior Grizzlies team.
