Line has shaved a few points and Harden was off last night in record-setting fashion. ATS, Grizzlies are 1-6 in their last 7. I'm going with law of averages and saying Grizzlies cover tonight. Too many vets imo to not at least put up a fight and they're rested.
My Pick: Memphis +4.5
- 74 Agree
Grizzlies may be able to slow down Harden's supporting cast but I don't think they can do enough on the offensive end to win this one. Rockets at home are a solid team and I'm going with Houston.

Houston Chronicle: Harden pours in a season-high 57, drives Rockets past Grizzlies
Of all the times James Harden had piled up numbers, all the MVP chants, all the roars as he put the finishing touches on masterpieces, this felt different.
A day that began with the sobering news that the already-shorthanded Rockets would be without center Clint Capela for at least a month ended with a long and loud standing ovation as Harden made his way to the bench early, his season-high 57 points lifting the Rockets to a 112-94 romp that sent a message that they won't concede to the latest injury.
"No pressure," Harden said on the way off the floor.

Projected Starting Lineups
With the news that Clint Capela will be out four to six weeks with injured thumb coming today, the Rockets enter tonight's game down three starters.
And with a loss last night against the Magic that was totally preventable, the stakes grow for the Rockets and their need to win this game.
Chat in this thread for the game and let's hope the good guys can pull one out tonight.
Fansided: The Memphis Grizzlies Must Take Advantage Of The Short-Handed Houston Rockets
The Memphis Grizzlies have a chance to get a road win against a good team that will be without some key players.
The Rockets will be without Chris Paul, Eric Gordon, and Clint Capela for tonight's game. Injuries haven't cost this team much lately though since James Harden has been playing at an MVP level.
Houston is coming off of a Sunday night loss against the Orlando Magic on the road. Harden went just 1-17 from three-point range which was an NBA record for attempts for a player who made just one three-pointer.
