The Raptors had a three-game win streak snapped with a 132-121 loss at the Atlanta Hawks Saturday. Toronto failed to cover the spread as a 1-point favorite. The Raps are 4-8 away from their 2020-21 season home of Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla.
The Memphis Grizzlies are 1-8 against the Toronto Raptors since February of 2016, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Monday. Memphis will be playing at home against Toronto at 8 p.m. ET. The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two.
The Grizzlies came up short against the New Orleans Pelicans this past Saturday, falling 118-109. Memphis’ defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of small forward Kyle Anderson, who had 21 points, and center Jonas Valanciunas, who had 23 points along with seven boards.
Meanwhile, Toronto ended up a good deal behind the Atlanta Hawks when they played this past Saturday, losing 132-121. One thing holding Toronto back was the mediocre play of point guard Kyle Lowry, who did not have his best game: he finished with only nine points on 4-for-16 shooting in his 36 minutes on the court.
Memphis is now 9-9 while the Raptors sit at 10-13. A couple stats to keep an eye on: The Grizzlies enter the matchup with 9.94 steals per game on average, which is the best in the league. But Toronto comes into the contest boasting the fourth fewest steals given up per game in the league at 6.7. Ball control might end up being a major factor in this one.
The Raptors are a slight 2.5-point favorite against the Grizzlies, according to the latest NBA odds.
