Pacers vs. Grizzlies Prediction & Pick

The Grizzlies have been phenomenal all season, and their current winning streak is just the latest proof of that. They're 16-4 over their last 20 games and have won four of their last five road contests.

Memphis has been exceptional on both sides of the ball, ranking eighth in points scored and first in defensive rating. That makes them incredibly tough to stop.

The Pacers have also been playing well lately, winning eight of their last 12 to pull comfortably above .500. Their roster is more pedestrian, however, ranking 15th in offensive rating and 21st in defensive rating.

With a clear edge on both ends of the court, the Grizzlies should have little trouble extending their winning streak to nine.

Final Score Prediction: Grizzlies: 123 | Pacers: 116

Pacers vs. Grizzlies Best Bet

The Grizzlies have been winning, but they haven't been blowing opponents out of the water lately. Their last four wins have all been by eight points or less, which gives the Pacers a good chance of covering the 8.5-point spread tonight at home.

Indiana hasn't lost a game by more than eight points since Dec. 26, so take the points with the Pacers.
