The team shot 40% from the field, 25% from the 3 point line (6-24), and 58.3% from the foul line (14-24). The Raptors out-rebounded the Bucks 54-43. The team’s big quarter was the 2nd in which they out-scored their opposition 31-19. Toronto is 11-7 on the road this season. Tonight is the 2nd game of a 3 game road trip. Their next game is Friday at Philadelphia.
The Memphis Grizzlies had their 4 game winning streak snapped with a 103-95 home loss versus the Mavericks on Monday. Point guard Mike Conley led the team in scoring with 22 points on 7 of 16 shooting in 30 minutes. Center Marc Gasol scored 20 points in 6 of 13 shooting in 39 minutes. He also had 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Power forward Zach Randolph had a double-double as he scored 18 points and pulled down 15 rebounds. He was 8 of 13 from the field in 40 minutes.

Tonight is the 3rd game of a 5 game home stand. Their next game is Saturday at home versus Philadelphia.
In their first meeting this season on November 19th Toronto notched a 96-92 home win versus Memphis. The Raptors have won the last 3 meetings with the Grizzlies. Tonight is the last meeting of the season between the 2 teams.
The Grizzlies are pretty strong at home and although I don’t think tonight’s game will be a blow out the Raptors are still trying to get back to the level they were playing at previously this season. Take the Grizzlies -5.5 (1.90) (Bet365)
