Hawks vs. Grizzlies Prediction & Pick

The Grizzlies showcased their depth on Friday night as Luke Kennard came off the bench to lead the team with 30 points on a 10-of-11 shooting mark. Memphis ranks 12th in bench points per game this season (35.8) and it has helped the team remain in the Western Conference's second spot for a while.

The Hawks are fighting to stay out of the play-in tournament, but are struggling to find any kind of consistency. They haven't won or lost more than two games in a row since the middle of January. Keep in mind Atlanta has lost six of its eight game played on the second night of a back-to-back.

The Hawks have also lost six straight games as an underdog as well, so fade Atlanta on Sunday.

Final Score Prediction: Hawks: 120 | Grizzlies: 125

Hawks vs. Grizzlies Best Bet

Backing Memphis' team total is the best bet. The Grizzlies travel to Atlanta on fire as they have scored at least 126 points in four of their last five games. On the other side, the Hawks have failed to step up on the defensive end, allowing at least 125 points in five of their last seven games.

The Grizzlies are shooting an impressive 53.2% from the floor (No. 2 in NBA) and 41.6% from three-point range (No. 6 in NBA) over their last three games, too. Star scorers like Ja Morant and Desmond Bane should be able to torch a fatigued Atlanta squad that ranks 22nd in defensive efficiency.

Bet: Memphis Grizzlies Over 122.5 Points (-110)
