It’s an inter-conference showdown between two teams that are fighting for their playoff lives in their respective conferences. The Memphis Grizzlies will head north to the Windy City to take on the Chicago Bulls.
The Grizzlies finally snapped a five-game losing streak on Monday with a 113-93 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. It was their first win this month, but they are still holding onto the 7th spot in the West.
The Bulls also ended a five-game skid on Monday when they defeated the Hornets in Charlotte 115-109. They are now a half game behind the Bucks for the final playoff spot in the East.
The Grizzlies seemed to be in a free-fall since the end of last month.
They lost five games in a row in the first half of March, and all but one of the losses were by double-digits. With the help of an age-defying performance from Vince Carter, the Grizz finally ended the streak on Monday.
Carter scored a season-high 24 points Monday’s 113-93 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Although Memphis is still safely in the 7th spot (they are five games ahead of the 8th place Nuggets), they needed to get back on the winning track.
A victory here could help them compete for better playoff positioning.
The Grizzlies have the 27th ranked scoring offense in the NBA, averaging only 101.4 points per game.
They rank 21st in rebounding with 43 and 24th in assists with 21.4 per contest. It is no secret that their defense is what wins games for Memphis; they allow only 100.7 points per game which is 4th in the league.
Marc Gasol leads the way for the Grizzlies with 20.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game.
Mike Conley runs the offense with 19.9 points and 6.2 assists a night. Zach Randolph contributes 14.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per contest.
It seemed as though the Bulls were playing themselves out of the playoffs over the last two weeks. Like their opponents this week, they lost five straight and all but one were by double-digits.
They finally ended the streak on Monday before falling completely out of the playoff picture.
With their win over the Hornets and the Milwaukee loss on Monday, the Bulls are still within a half game of the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference.
The Bulls score only 102 points per game, which ranks them one spot ahead of their opposition in this game (26th). They rank 3rd in rebounding with 46.1 and 19th in assists with 21.8 per contest.
Chicago also relies on their defense, allowing only 103 points per game which ranks 7th in the league.
Jimmy Butler leads the way with 23.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game. Dwyane Wade contributes 18.8 points and 4.5 assists per contest, and Robin Lopez adds 10 points and 6.5 rebounds a night.
