Memphis is making history in this series. The Grizzlies got their first-ever playoff win in game one of this series in San Antonio and they pulled off their first-ever home playoff win on Saturday night.  If they can get a win on Monday they would be in great position to get their first-ever playoff series win.  Even though Memphis has a 2-1 lead in this series, history is still against the Grizzlies. There have been six #8 seeds to have a 2-1 lead in a series against a #1 seed since the playoffs expanded more than 25 years ago and four of those six teams ended up losing the series.

The Grizzlies are winning this series because they are better than the Spurs inside.  Tim Duncan is a future Hall of Famer but he has seen his best days and he is not the best inside player in this series.  Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol are dominating the Spurs up front.  The Spurs duo of Duncan and Antonio McDyess has been no match for Randolph and Gasol.  San Antonio is also not shooting the ball well in this series. In their two losses in this series the Spurs are shooting just over 30 percent on their jump shots.  The Spurs were just 2 for 15 from behind the 3-point line in Game 3 and that is important because during the regular season the Spurs were the NBA’s best 3-point shooting team.

Here are the NBA betting stats for Monday’s game. The Spurs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite. The Spurs are 21-10-2 ATS in their last 33 Monday games. The Spurs are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite. The Grizzlies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Monday games. The Grizzlies are 25-7-1 ATS in their last 33 games as an underdog. The Grizzlies are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings against the Spurs in Memphis.

The Over is 11-4 in the Spurs last 15 overall. The Under is 5-1 in the Grizzlies last 6 home games. The Under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in Memphis.
