Saturday, February 12th the Memphis Grizzlies play the Charlotte Hornets for the second and final time this season. Memphis won the initial match 118-108 on November 10th.
The Grizzlies last played on Thursday pummeling the Pistons 132-107 while the Hornets are playing a back-to-back set having crushed (141-119) the Pistons on Friday.
Last season, the squads played twice with Memphis winning both contests. The Hornets hold the all-time record having bested the Grizzlies in 25 of their 46 matches.
Not overly surprising the Grizzlies were one of eight teams that were inactive at the trade deadline. When a team has the type of chemistry this Memphis team does you don’t want to mess with that.
Kyle Anderson was a player rumored to be available and by keeping him the Grizzlies may lose him for nothing this summer. By the same token, it’s also reasonable for the Grizzlies front office to want to see how this specific iteration of the team fares in the postseason.
Then if (when) they fall short they can look to emulate what the Suns did in the offseason by adding the right key veteran or support players to take them another step up the ladder.
As for the game, the Grizzlies seemingly toyed with the Pistons squad never being in danger of losing. Seven players scored in double-figures led by Ja Morant with 23 and Steven Adams registered a double-double of 16 points and 14 rebounds plus five assists and a block.
Xavier Tillman (thigh), Killian Tillie (back), Santi Aldama (foot), and Yves Pons (thigh) are all out Thursday. Dillon Brooks (ankle) has passed the timeline projected for his return.
The Hornets got the Pistons on the second game of the back-to-back the night after the Grizzlies ran them out of the gym. Charlotte owes Memphis a thank you for that as it helped them finally end the losing streak that was at six games.
In his debut, Montrezl Harrell played 22 minutes registering 15 points, six rebounds, an assist, a steal, and a block.
Multiple players produced key double-digit stats including Terry Rozier’s triple-double (25 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists), LaMelo Ball posting a double-double of 25 points, and 11 assists with eight rebounds and four steals while Mason Plumlee pulled down 10 rebounds.
I’m not overly thrilled by the move to add Harrell because he’s an undersized big, not a rim protector, and doesn’t excel on the defensive end of the court which are the issues Charlotte needed to address with a big. Something tells me this might be a short-term fix.
The one positive is it didn’t cost a lot, as neither Vernon Carey nor Ish Smith was part of the long-term plans. The Hornets will gauge Harrell’s fit and vice versa and revisit when he’s a free agent this offseason.
Jalen McDaniels (ankle) and Cody Martin was questionable for Saturday. Gordon Hayward (ankle) is out indefinitely.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
The Grizzlies have the rest advantage and bring a four-game win streak to the court. Charlotte broke out in an offensive explosion but will be in tough trying to stop Memphis from getting into the paint.
