The Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks take the court Thursday night, in a battle of two Southwest division foes. The Grizzlies are off to a 3-0 start and the Mavericks have sputtered to start the year at 0-4 this season. This game will mark the fourth game played at home for Dallas this year.
The teams have not faced off this season, but are familiar with each other. The Grizzlies won last years series 6-5 out of 11 games played against each other last season
The Memphis Grizzlies are off to a great start to the new season. Memphis is undefeated through three games this year and 1-0 on the road this season. The Grizzlies played their most recent game on the road at Houston. Memphis earned the win, 98-90.
The Grizzlies were led by veteran big man, Marc Gasol. Gasol had 26 points and five rebounds in the win. Guard Mike Conley added 17 points and four assists despite shooting 3 of 10 from the field. Mario Chalmers also chipped in 11 points off the bench.
Chalmers played 26 minutes and was also involved in a shoving match with Rockets Guard James Harden. Harden was held to 8 of 20 shooting for 22 points in the loss. No one was suspended after the altercation. The Grizzlies shot 43 percent from the field, and still won by eight on the road.
I know the season is only in week two, but the Grizzlies are looking like one of the most balanced teams in the league to start the year. Memphis is averaging 104 points per game , while allowing 94 points per game this season on defense.
As the season goes along, look for the Grizzlies defense to get stronger and more efficient. Especially if they can stay healthy throughout the year.
The Dallas Mavericks are winless through four games this year. Dallas was most recently destroyed by the defending Champion Golden State Warriors, 133-103 at home. Dallas shot 39 percent from the field and 31 percent from three point range in the loss. The Mavericks gave up 40 first quarter points, finding themselves down 15 points after the first quarter, leading to the loss.
The Mavericks have no where to turn offensively. Dirk Nowitzki is aging and averaging 8.3 points per game this season. With no offensive identity or star power, the Mavericks are struggling to score the ball. Dallas is averaging a little over 94 points per game so far this year.
Scoring 94 points per game and allowing over 112 points per contest, is not going to get it done, especially in the Western Conference. Dallas could be in for another long night against the Grizzlies in this game.
