Grizzlies at Rockets Prediction 11/11/2017
Memphis took both earlier matches this season including a 98–90 win here at the Toyota Center. The Rockets come into this game on a four-game win streak with James Harden playing lights out and I look for the team to ride him to their fifth straight win. The scheduling advantage for Houston is big here with Memphis in the middle of a six-game road trip but going into this game without playing since Tuesday night in Portland. I just don’t feel that we’ll get the best game out of the Grizzlies leading the revenge minded Rockets to the spread cover.
