OUR PREDICTION: The Rockets are the best bet in the league coming off a loss, covering in nine straight following defeat. They're also 16-5 against the number in their last 21 games when playing on one day of rest, are 16-6 against the spread in their last 22 conference games and have covered in 20 of their last 28 games following an ATS loss. The Grizzlies, meanwhile, are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in its previous game and have failed to cover in five of their last seven road games.
