The Memphis Grizzlies travel to take the court against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Grizzlies are trending in the wrong direction. The team has lost 10 games in a row and most recently lost to the Spurs in consecutive games. The Cleveland Cavaliers have won 10 games in a row. The Cavaliers took care of the Hawks, 121-114 in their last game.
Last season, the two teams faced each other twice with them splitting the series 1-1. Memphis won last years most recent matchup, 93-85. Don’t expect the same outcome for this game.
The Grizzlies are one of the worst teams in the NBA right now. The Grizzlies have lost 10 straight, and most recently fired their head coach, David Fizdale. Fizdale has since then been replaced with former assistant coach J.B. Bickerstaff.
Aside from all the turmoil surrounding the team, and playing the rest of the year without Mike Conley Jr., it looks like the team might be in tank mode for the first time in almost a decade. Memphis is averaging 97.7 points per game this year. Good enough for 26th in the NBA this season.
Without any firepower on the offensive side, the team has four players scoring in double figures this season. All star Marc Gasol is leading the team in points (18.5 per game) and rebounds (9.1 per game) and veteran guard Tyreke Evans is 17.2 points per game this year for Memphis
Despite their bad numbers offensively, the defense is allowing 100.8 points per game this season. The team is trying to keep a defensive mentality, but can’t keep up on offense. If the Grizzlies can get some stops early in the game, Memphis can gain confidence to keep up with the Cavaliers.
If Memphis can get a strong start from Gasol and Evans, Memphis should make this game closer than anticipated.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are the hottest team in the NBA right now. The Cavs have won 20 in a row, and are looking for number 11 tonight at home against the Grizzlies. Cleveland has been playing with a lot to prove this year, especially after losing Kyrie Irving this off season. Kyrie Irving is leading the Celtics to the best record in the NBA right now.
LeBron James is still doing what he does for Cleveland. He leads Cleveland in Points, assists, steals and blocks this year. James is arguably the league MVP with the way he has played. James is averaging 28 points, eight rebounds and eight assists per game this year. Memphis should be aware, he due for a huge scoring outburst.
If Cleveland can play as solid as they have the last 10 games, the Cavaliers should have not issues handling the Grizzlies at home. The team is looking more comfortable with each other game by game.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
The Memphis Grizzlies are going to struggle tonight against the Cavs. With no offensive identity and lack of star power, Gasol could have a tough game against double and triple teams in Cleveland.
The Cavaliers are still the team to beat in the East. LeBron James has another patched together team, challenging for the best record in the East again this year.
