NBA game of the day: Clippers at Grizzlies
By Covers.com

Los Angeles Clippers at Memphis Grizzlies (-2.5, 184)

The Memphis Grizzlies did the unthinkable on Saturday - they allowed another team to score at least 100 points. Looking tired on the second night of a back-to-back, the Grizzlies got blown out at Dallas and will be looking to bounce back when they host the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday. The Clippers are coming off an ugly loss of their own and have struggled a bit on the road, dropping their last two.

Memphis had allowed an opponent to reach 100 points only twice previously, including the opening game of the season when Los Angeles got 29 points from Jamal Crawford in a 101-92 victory at Staples Center. But after squeezing out an overtime victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Friday, the Grizzlies had little left the next night and had to endure a 104-83 loss to the Mavericks. The Clippers had their 13-game home winning streak end when they were outscored 29-18 in the fourth quarter of a 104-101 loss to lowly Orlando on Saturday.

ABOUT THE CLIPPERS (28-9): Los Angeles is not far behind the Grizzlies in terms of its team defense but could not get the stops it needed late in Saturday’s contest. That snapped a three-game overall winning streak for the Clippers, who are opening up a three-game road trip at Memphis and will play 14 of their next 17 away from Staples Center. Chris Paul was dominant in the losing effort again on Saturday with 16 assists and only two turnovers. The MVP candidate is averaging 13.5 assists over the past four contests. Paul collected 12 points and 12 assists in the Oct. 31 meeting with Memphis as the Clippers put six players in double figures and shot 51.4 percent from the floor.

ABOUT THE GRIZZLIES (24-11): Memphis had a four-game winning streak snapped in the loss to the Mavericks and is still one of only two teams in the NBA holding opponents to a average of less than 90 points (89.7). The Grizzlies could have attempted to keep it closer against Dallas but elected to sit all five starters for the entire fourth quarter to rest up for Monday. Rudy Gay was the only starter to reach double figures with 12 points. Gay went for 24 points in the opener against the Clippers and Zach Randolph pulled down 16 rebounds but Memphis could not get the job done defensively and went 2-for-14 from 3-point range.

TRENDS:

* Clippers are 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a loss.
* Grizzlies are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.
* Over is 4-1 in Clippers’ last five overall.
* Under is 6-1 in Grizzlies’ last seven games following a loss.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. The Clippers beat the Grizzlies in a seven-game playoff series last spring, taking the clinching game in Memphis 82-72.

2. Los Angeles F Grant Hill (knee) made his season debut on Saturday and played six minutes.

3. Memphis G Mike Conley is shooting 29.4 percent (5-of-17) from 3-point range in the last six games.

Atlanta Hawks at  Chicago Bulls

Both Chicago Bulls (20-15, 13-22 ATS) and Atlanta Hawks (21-15, 14-21-1 ATS) are in bounce back mode when the two collide at the United Center on Monday night. Bulls stunned 97-81 Saturday at home by Suns have not enjoyed much home court advantage this season posting a 10-10 record with a cash draining 4-16 mark at the betting window. But, Bulls one of the better teams defensively (92.3) have an excellent chance to get back on the winning track here at home against Atlanta. The Hawks off a humiliated 93-83 loss against the leagues worst team (Wizards) enter the contest 8-11 (5-14 ATS) scoring =< 95 points/game. Stick with Bulls - The Hawks head into Chicago on a 1-6 SU/ATS skid including 0-4 SU/ATS on the highway, have lost 7-of-10 (4-5-1 ATS) meetings including 0-4 (1-2-1 ATS) last four visits to the windy city.
