Why Bet on Memphis?

The Grizzlies are trying to tank but won for the third time in four games on Saturday, 99-90 over New Orleans. After connecting on 11 of 18 shots in the first quarter, New Orleans went 15 of 50 over the next two frames, scoring only 34 points.

Mike Conley made 3-of-11 from the field for 11 points, adding six rebounds, nine assists and one turnover in 32 minutes. It looks like the Grizzlies will play Conley for now.
