The Grizzlies had their 2-game winning streak snapped in their last game, but they head to the California capital as a 5-point road favorite. The Kings have lost 2 of ther 3 games on the season and while they have a high-scoring offense ranking 3rd in the league in points per game their defense only ranks 27th in opponents’ points allowed.
This season the Kings are 1-1 at home and the Grizzlies are 1-1 on the road.
In their last games the Kings lost to the L.A. Clippers 114-109 and the Grizzlies lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers 106-76.
To say the Grizzlies want to forget about their loss to the Cavs would be an understatement. They shot a horrid 35.4% from the floor, allowed the Cavs to shoot 48.8% from the field, and they were outscored 26-10 in the first quarter.
The big match up in this game is former Defensive Player of the Year Marc Gasol facing Sacto big man DeMarcus Cousins, who is averaging 22 ppg and 11 rpg.
Memphis is led by the frontcourt duo of Gasol and Randolph and while they did not shoot poorly in the loss to the Cavs they only combined for 24 points. It is key that they attack the rim and get to the charity stripe, as in the Cavs loss they only combined for 4 free throws.
The Grizzlies need to win with their solid defnese, as they are not a high scoring team ranking 23rd in the league in ppg and Mike Conley is their leading scorer and he is only averaging 13.2 ppg.
Many people were wondering why the Kings signed Rajon Rondo in the off-season, but he has been solid so far averaging over 15 ppg and nearly 7 assists per game.
Cousins and rookie C Willie Cauley-Stein, who is averaging 9 ppg and 6.7 rpg will be a handful for the frontcourt for the Grizzlies.
The Kings have 4 players averaging over 14 ppg and Rondo will have to facilitate good ball movement tonight facing a solid Memphis defense.
Rudy Gay is the 2nd leading scorer for the Kings and while he has been scoring this season he has to shoot the rock better then he did in the loss to the Clippers where he was 8/23 from the floor.
Last season the Grizzlies took 3 of 4 games from the Kings, but the one loss was in Sacramento.
