For already the 2nd time this season, the Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves will meet.
Memphis got the better of the two in the season opening matchup 102-98.
Marc Gasol is literally putting this team on his back and carrying them here through the first 3 games.
Gasol, who is known for his inside presence, is lighting up the opposition from behind the arc, something nobody was ready for heading into this season.
The Grizzlies big man has set a career high for 3 pointers made and Memphis is just 3 games into their season. Gasol comes in off a game where he hit 4 of them as he hit a game tying one at the end of regulation. He then followed that up with a pair in overtime.
Mike Conley continues his early run here in the 2016-2017 season, as he comes in off a game where he finished with 24 points and 11 assists.
He paced the Grizzlies in the season opening win, putting up 24 against the Timberwolves.
Minnesota is going to be one hard team to figure out.
Last season, they couldn’t close games out and that came with their compliment of youth. While the core has developed and has another year of experience under their belts, things were expected to change.
The first two games have followed last season’s theme, as the Timberwolves failed late.
To make matters even worse here, the Timberwolves could be without Ricky Rubio. The PG sprained his elbow in the loss to the Kings and will likely be out. However, he will test it prior to the game to see.
Should he not be able to go, Kris Dunn will get the starting nod.
Dunn has averaged just 6 points through the first two games. Expect his role to increase as the season goes on.
