Monday, April 19th the Memphis Grizzlies and Denver Nuggets play for the second time this season. Denver won the initial meeting on March 12th in a one-point battle (103-102). The teams will play one additional time on April 26th also in Denver.
Last season, the squads played three times with Denver winning two of the three contests. The Nuggets holds the all-time record having won 57 matches of the 93 played.
The Grizzlies began a season-long seven-game road trip with a bang, winning both games of a back-to-back set this weekend first in Chicago Friday, then in Milwaukee on Saturday.
Week 18 serves up four games starting in Denver, then in LA versus the Clippers prior to two in Portland next weekend and finishing back in Denver a week from tonight.
The weekend victories afforded Memphis a bit of padding (two games) over the ninth-seeded Warriors and they’ll oo to extend it via this very tough schedule stretch.
The victory versus the Bucks was impressive given Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday, and Khris Middleton were all playing.
Six Grizzlies scored in double-figures with Grayson Allen leading the way producing 26 points.
Dillon Brooks followed up his 32 point effort with 21 in Milwaukee. s, a season-high for him. Big man Jonas Valanciunas delivered up 17 points and eight rebounds.
Desmond Bane (16), Xavier Tillman (15), and Ja Morant (13) were the other double-figure contributors.
Brandon Clarke is dealing with a hip injury that kept him out Friday and Saturday. De’Anthony Melton (leg) has missed the last eight matches while Justise Winslow (thigh) has been out the last 12 games. All three are listed as day-to-day.
Jaren Jackson (knee) continues his rehab with the team continually teasing he’ll be back soon, yet he remains out.
Since February 27th, the Nuggets are 19-5 and have moved into the fourth seed with sights set on the Clippers who are two games ahead in third.
Despite Jamal Murray tearing his ACL in the closing minute versus the Warriors and being lost for the season, the Nuggets rebounded winning consecutive games.
Nikola Jokic has embraced the adversity and has become one of the key names mentioned for MVP. In the win versus the Heat, he posted a triple-double of 17 points and 10 rebounds and 11 assists.
Jokic followed that up with 29 points 16 rebounds and seven assists in 27 minutes versus the Rockets.
Michael Porter Jr. is embracing his expanded offensive role posting a double-double of 25 points and 10 rebounds versus the Heat and 21 points with five rebounds versus the Rockets.
Aaron Gordon is doing whatever is asked of him and will presumably look to add more offensive consistency without Murray. JyMychal Green and PJ Dozier are eagerly leading the bench unit and scoring in double-figures versus Miami and Houston.
No one can replace Murray but Denver is deep and Jokic is special so we’ll discover the mettle of this club over the stretch run.
