The Los Angeles Clippers will look to stay hot and keep pace near the top of the Western Conference when they host the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night, April 21st. The Clippers will enter as winners of nine of their last 10 games and are 41-19 for third place in the West. Memphis is currently in the No. 8 spot of the West at 29-27 with less than a month to go in the regular season.
The Clippers will continue to be without Kawhi Leonard, Serge Ibaka and Patrick Beverley. For Memphis, their third leading scorer Dillon Brooks miss Monday night’s game and is questionable to play on Wednesday with a thigh injury, and their second leading scorer Jonas Valanciunas is out as he continues to go through the concussion protocol. Jaren Jackson Jr. is questionable and could make his season debut for Memphis.

Pick ATS: Grizzlies +1.5
Both teams are dealing with injuries to some of their most important players, so check the latest injury reports prior to placing your bet, but we’re going with Memphis to cover this spread as road underdogs. The Clippers played in Portland on Tuesday night, so they had to travel in a back-to-back situation, and this is their third game in four nights. Meanwhile, Memphis had Tuesday off to rest, so the Grizzlies are going to have the advantage in this spot.
