Memphis carries their three game winning streak into Denver on Thursday night as they look to make 2 straight over the Nuggets this year.
These two teams met back on 1/8 and the Grizzlies took care of business at home 91-84.
Denver has played well as of late grabbing wins in 3 of their last 5 overall, but fell in their most recent outing to the Thunder 110-104.
The Grizzlies have tinkered with their lineup over and over again, but have finally found stability with their veterans.
Memphis has inserted Gasol, Conley, Randolph, and Allen back in the lineup. Last game was a prime example of how their starters production has help the bench out too.
Gasol and Conley had 31 points combined, while Randolph and Allen both took care of business on the boards. The bench saw production from Matt Barnes (16 points) and Jeff Green (16 points).
The Grizzlies 3 game winning streak saw all their wins come during a 3 game home-stand as they knocked off Detroit, New York, and New Orleans.
They now set their sights on a 2 game road swing starting with this one in Denver and then heading to Minnesota over the weekend. Memphis has gone just 8-12 SU on the road this season.
The Nuggets have won 3 of their last 5 and have looked impressive doing so, even in the losses they’ve endured during this run.
Denver has defeated Charlotte Golden State, and Indiana while they’ve dropped 2 to Miami and Oklahoma City. Both losses were tight throughout as they fell to Miami by just 3 and Oklahoma City by 6.
Danilo Gallinari continues to lead the way for Denver as he put up another solid performance as he went for 27 and 3 in the loss to Oklahoma City. Gallinari has averaged 19.0 points and 5.8 rebounds per game this season.
With Denver’s recent success, they’ve climbed back into a crowded bottom portion of the Western Conference. Denver now trails 8th seeded Utah by just 2.5 games. However, the Nuggets have 2 more teams in between them and the 8th spot.

The Nuggets have played much better of late, but they run into a hot Memphis team that has finally figured things out.
Memphis has turned into a team that does not get production from just their starters, they get a lot of points and rebounds from the bench.
Look for Randolph and Gasol to control the paint and handle the Nuggets here.
