This game features the Grizzlies traveling to Houston to face the Rockets.
Memphis is 2-2 in their last 4 while Houston is 3-1 in their last 4 games.
Memphis holds a 2-1 season series lead.
The Grizzlies are the type of team no one wants to face in the playoffs, as they combine veteran leadership, and tough defense to make any 7 game series a battle.
Mike Conley was amazing against a weak Suns backcourt. The veteran guard scored 29 points on 10-19 from the floor, and also had 8 assists. Conley has seen his offensive production improve he last 2 games, and I don’t see him slowing down against the Rockets.
A 30 point game isn’t out of the question for the Memphis point guard.
After going 4 games without making a 3 point attempt, Marc Gasol has been on fire from downtown.
He was 3-6 from behind the arc against Denver earlier this week, then followed it up with a 5-5 performance against the Suns.
If Gasol can keep shooting like this it will be a long day for the Rockets defense. A high scoring double double should be in store for the All-Star center.
Zach Randolph has looked like a younger version of himself in these last few Grizzlies contests. He put up 23 points and 8 rebounds against the Suns front line, and his hot play should continue with the Rockets lacking interior defense.
A big double double performance from Randolph will be a deciding factor in this game.
Is it safe to say James Harden will be winning the MVP this year? Even with Russell Westbrook averaging a triple double, Harden’s explosive play has propelled the Rockets into legit title contender, and they will be a real threat to the Warriors and Spurs in the Western Conference playoffs.
Harden has put up near triple doubles in all 3 contests against Memphis, and this one should be another brilliant performance. Expect Harden to get 30 points, 13 assists and 9 rebounds when the game is all said and done.
The Rockets made waves in the Western conference as they traded a first round pick to acquire guard Lou Williams from the Lakers. He provides another scoring punch to one of the best offenses in the NBA.
After scoring 28 points in a loss to Indiana last week, he struggled against the Clippers, scoring just 5 points on 2-11 shooting.
This matchup against Memphis will be a good one, as the Grizzlies have one of the toughest defenses in the league.
Williams will bounce back from a poor shooting night and finish with 20 points.
Patrick Beverley put up solid numbers against the Clippers on Wednesday night. He ended the game with 14 points, a surprising 12 rebounds, and 4 assists.
Facing Mike Conley will be a big task for the athletic defender as Conley is hot right now, but I think he will be up to the challenge.
