NBA FREE PICK: Take Memphis. According to latest NBA trends, Los Angeles Clippers are: 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Southwest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. Memphis is: 26-10 ATS in their last 36 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and 37-15 ATS in their last 52 games playing on 0 days rest.

The Los Angeles Clippers have clinched the Pacific Division, which guarantees them homecourt advantage in the first round. The Grizzlies are hoping to catch Denver and get into the top four of the West. The Los Angeles Clippers usually struggle against teams like Memphis, who love to slow the game down and play halfcourt basketball. Unfortunately for the Clippers, the playoffs are all about halfcourt basketball and "lob city" will not be much of a factor. Memphis averages just 93.6 points per game (26th), but they allow only 89.5 points per game (first in the NBA). Their defense drives them as they allow teams to shoot just 43.8 percent from the field (first) and 33.7 percent from beyond the arc (third). The Clippers are a talented club but with several faults. One of them is foul shooting (71.2 percent) as they rank 27th in the NBA. Another weakness is 3-point shooting defense (37.4 percent). They aren't a physical team and that will have issues against a Memphis team that has dominated at home this year (31-8).
