Score: 121 - 137
Point Spread: +5/-105 Memphis
10* Memphis (8:05 ET): Minnesota was able to split the two games Karl-Anthony Towns missed due to suspension (got into a fight w/ Joel Embiid). They won in Washington, 131-109, but then faltered at home against Milwaukee, losing 134-106. Towns is back in the lineup Wednesday night as the T'wolves make the trip to Memphis. While the Grizzlies' season is not exactly off to a "rousing start" (their record is 1-5), they've generally been competitive. This is their third straight home game while Minnesota has had to bounce back & forth between home and the road. Take the points as the T'wolves are overvalued in Towns' return. The Grizzlies' last two home games were against Phoenix and Houston. They lost by nine to the Suns, a game which they led early. Playng against a desperate Rockets team (that had been humiliated the night prior), they lost by only seven. The only times this team has been blown out this year have been on the road. They're 1-3 at home w/ all three losses coming by single digits. One bright spot has been the play of rookie Ja Morant, who leads the team in points and assists. He had 23 and 6 against Houston Monday. We should see Morant and the rest of the Grizzlies shoot better tonight against a T'wolves team that just gave up 134 points and is not noted for its defense. It'll be interesting to see how Towns return affects Andrew Wiggins, who was the primary scorer for Minnesota the L2 games. While the T'wolves have opened 3-1 SU on the road, two of the wins were against Washington and Charlotte (both bad) and the other by a single point over Brooklyn. Their only other win was a very favorable spot against Miami, who was playing the second game of a back to back. I thought the T'wolves were somewhat exposed in losses to the Sixers and Bucks, which came by 22 and 28 points respectively. This isn't a team I'd want to LAY points with on the road. 10* Memphis
