The Magic (32-43) have won three straight games and have started to make some strides for head coach Jahmal Mosley.

On Sunday, Memphis was able to make the plays down the stretch during a 123-119 road victory against Atlanta. The Grizzlies (47-27) connected on 13-for-33 from long distance and shot 54 percent overall.

Memphis G Ja Morant is dealing with right thigh soreness and is listed as doubtful for this contest. The Grizzlies rank second in the league in defensive efficiency, so the under is worth a look. The stronger play is on the Magic to cover on the road. Final Score Prediction, Memphis Grizzlies win 111-108.
