Monday, January 14 finds the Memphis Grizzlies facing the. Houston Rockets as they meet for the third time in the 2018-19 regular season. Houston is on the second game of a back to back having lost to the Magic on Sunday. Memphis last played on Saturday in a loss to Miami.
Last season, the teams split the four-game series and Houston have won both matches this year. The Rockets hold the all-time record having bested the Grizzlies in 59 of their 94 matches.
Playing the Heat is always a battle given their physicality but Memphis gave as good as they got on Saturday ultimately falling to Miami 112-108.
Mike Conley did his best to keep Memphis in the match scoring 22 points and even hit an incredible three quarter court shot at game end but it left his hand just after the buzzer.
Four other Grizzlies scored in double-digits with JaMychal Green leading the way delivering a double-double (24 points, 11 rebounds) in the loss.
After jolting out of the gate to start the season the Grizzlies have struggled on both sides of the court and particularly in closing games. The loss to Miami was the Grizzlies 12th in their last 15 games.
Kyle Anderson (left ankle sprain) out until mid-February. Dillon Brooks (toe) will miss rest of season. Chandler Parsons (knee) is ready to return to action but refuses to play with Memphis G-League team so the team and he are at an impasse.
Although Orlando was playing the second game of a back to back set versus a rested Houston team it was the Magic who prevailed to make a late run to upset the Rockets 116-109.
The wear and tear on James Harden may be catching up based on his performance versus Orlando.
His game high 38 points came on a highly inefficient 11 of 32 from the field which was bolstered by his 16 free throws (15 made).
Despite early issues from the perimeter Harden continued to shoot triples, 17 in all, connecting on just one.
He also added 12 assists and nine rebounds and extended his consecutive 30 point efforts to 16 games in a row.
Austin Rivers chipped in with 25 points, including four triples.
Brandon Knight (left knee soreness) is questionable while Eric Gordon (knee) and Chris Paul (hamstring) are both out until the end of January at a minimum.

Memphis are the more rested squad who struggle to close out games, but the real issue is they allow teams to shoot 36.6% from the perimeter which ranks 26th.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Rockets ATS
The Rockets get up the most 3-point attempts (43.2) in the Association and although they rank 14th in percentage (35.2%) if Memphis can’t defend the perimeter it could be a very long night.
