The 76ers travel to Memphis Tuesday for the second stop on their three-game road trip. This is the second meeting between these two teams this season. The Grizzlies defeated Philadelphia 99-94 on January 28. Basketball lines.
Philadelphia’s 34-19 ATS mark is tied with San Antonio for the NBA’s best record and it is third in the NBA in ATS success on the road (18-9, 67%). After losing four straight ATS from January 8-17, the Sixers are 10-4 overall ATS and 6-1 ATS on the road. Philadelphia has suffocated their opponents defensively over the past two games, allowing just 79.0 PPG on 34.9% FG. After combining to score just 11 points while making 5-of-18 shots in his previous two games, Thaddeus Young scored 18 points on 9-of-13 shooting in Philadelphia’s victory over Minnesota on Saturday.
Memphis enters winners of three straight and 11 of its past 14 games SU. They have the fourth-best ATS record in the NBA this season at 34-21 and are 15-10 ATS at home this season. Memphis shot a season-high 55.7 percent from the field in defeating Denver 116-108 on Sunday. Darrell Arthur scored a career-high 24 points off the bench in the win, while Rudy Gay poured in 23 points. Basketball betting lines.
