These are not the worst teams in the league but they have to be the most disappointing and the primary reasons why some are saying the West is worst than the East this season. It is one of those games where somebody has to win it though. Memphis is at home and not playing the night before.
That should be an advantage especially with the MASH unit that are the Clippers. Be sure to take a look at who is playing in this one before making any call.
Los Angeles Clippers
It has been a very tough season for the Clippers who might be starting to see the tide shift back to the Lakers in LA. They are not good and their best player is hurt.
Blake Griffin is out through the New Year at least and without him everyone is being asked to do more than is fair. Danillo Galinari is out too and he would have been a logical replacement for Griffin’s production.
Lou Williams is the leading scorer now and even though he is nifty with the ball and has all the tricks I am not sure it is healthy for a team to rely on him that way.
Austin Rivers gets a big time opportunity with Chris Paul moving on but he is never going to be more than just an average player in the league in my opinion.
DeAndre Jordan is having another strong season, owning the boards but he is not equipped to take on more of the scoring. Until Griffin is back this team will continue to struggle.
I am still having trouble adjusting to how bad Memphis is. I thought their ceiling was .500 now it might be 25 wins. It is always interesting when teams stumble so significantly. Their margin was always so thin too so it is hard to see how they would get it back. Mike Conley isn’t playing which is big even though he is overrated.
No Conley means that Marc Gasol is the only regular threat out there. He is a very productive player but the rumours are swirling about a trade as the team could use a reset. It would also help if they could deal Chandler Parsons, wow what a bust. He shows glimpses and maybe is inspired on a better team.
Tyreke Evans is having a bit of a renaissance in Memphis. I have always liked the ferocity of his game but at the same time it can curt the team. The best players know how to find the rhythm of the game and play within it. He is always pushing which is why his career has never found a sweet spot.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
These are two bad teams. That spread has to be mostly the location and the situation with the Clippers playing the night before.
One thing I do like about LA’s chances is that they actually have a foil for Gasol in Jordan. If those guys are a stalemate things looks good for the Clippers.

I must be out of my mind with that pick right? I just don’t have any faith in Memphis.
