Point Spread Pick:

The Grizzlies looked out of sorts in the opener shooting a pathetic 36.3% from the field as the Thunder lead throughout in an easy 100 -86 victory. Since Game 1 though Memphis has given Oklahoma City everything they can handle taking them to OT in 3 straight games and getting the W in two of them. You could make an argument for either side in Game 5, but in a game that anyone could win I’ll take the side getting the points. Take the Memphis Grizzlies +6.

Why waste money? Bet this game at and lay -105 instead of -110!
