The Oklahoma City Thunder are coming off of a tough, 114-104, loss at home to the streaking Denver Nuggets, just the fifth time this season they've been defeated at home. They hit the road Wednesday to face off another thriving Western Conference foe, the gritty Memphis Grizzlies.

The LVH SuperBook opened the Thunder as 1.5-point favorites against the Grizzlies before their loss to the Nuggets. The game was reposted Memphis -1.5 this morning at the sports book.

The Thunder (50-18 SU, 40-26-2 ATS) are 1-1 against the Grizzlies (45-21 SU, 39-26-1 ATS) on the season, both SU and ATS. Both prior matchups were at home. The Grizzlies are 26-8 SU and 19-14-1 ATS on their home floor, while the Thunder are 20-13 SU and 16-15-2 ATS on the road.

Elsewhere in the NBA tonight, the Miami Heat (52-14 SU, 35-31 ATS) are coming off of a big win against the Boston Celtics that stretched their win streak to 23 games. They’re in Cleveland to face the Cavaliers (22-45 SU, 34-32-1 ATS), LeBron James' former team, which continues to miss Kyrie Irving. There isn’t much question regarding the Heat’s ability to win this game, but will they be able to cover the 11-point spread? The Heat are only 7-10 ATS when they lay 10 or more points.
