NBA starts a new week Monday with a heavy 12-game slate. Brooklyn Nets vs. Memphis Grizzlies isn’t going to garner the most attentive national audience, but it will be interesting to see a battle between two teams with drastically different styles of play and on drastically different levels.
*All statistics, standings, rankings, records and trends are current as of this writing at 3:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 5.
The Brooklyn Nets are an uptempo team that thrives on speed and quick, easy, transition buckets.
Against Memphis, the goal is going to be controlling the pace. The Grizzlies not only like to slow it down — they thrive in half-court sets.
On the year, Brooklyn is averaging 105.4 points per contest. That number is good enough for 14th in the NBA.
But again, it all comes off of quick points. Brooklyn runs the No. 1 fastest pace in the league and is near the end of the league in terms of offensive efficiency.
Success against the Grizzlies will come down to how many transition points they can score. If the Nets are forced into the half-court against one of the league’s grittiest defenses, it’s going to be a long night.
Memphis is the exact opposite of the Nets. Unlike Brooklyn, who is dead last in points per game allowed, the Grizzlies are fourth in the NBA in points per game allowed.
Also unlike Brooklyn, the Grizzlies struggle scoring. This team is just 27th in the NBA in points per game — they score 101.3 points per night.
Memphis is 28th in pace — only two spots away from dead last in the league.
Like Brooklyn, the key for Memphis is going to be controlling the pace. If Memphis can make this a half-court game, it should have no problem coming away with a double-digit win despite its inability to score at a high rate.
If the Grizz let Brooklyn dictate the tempo, this game will be more interesting.

With the Grizzlies’ grit-and-grind defense in full effect, not to mention their ability to slow down not just their own offense but opponent offenses as well, it’s easy to see the Grizzlies taking this one by double-digits.
Brooklyn is coming off a 130-116 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers — a team that struggles defensively.
Expect the same kind of margin in this one, just scaled down about 15-20 points each.
