Memphis will be playing its second game in as many nights but that should not affect the young talented roster of the Grizzlies. New Orleans on the other hand has failed to win and cover each of its first two games back from the long break. Memphis lost its opening game of the restart but by just two points to the Utah Jazz. Final Score Prediction, Memphis Grizzlies win and cover ATS 112-104
