On Friday, April 9th, the Memphis Grizzlies and New York Knicks meet for the first time this season.
The Grizzlies hold the all-time record between the clubs with 24 wins in 46 meetings. Last season, the teams played once last season due to the pandemic with the Grizzlies winning that single contest.
The Grizzlies look to sweep their four-game road trip in the Mecca and arrive on a four-game win streak. Their success on this trip is important given the looming schedule.
After this game, the Grizzlies will host a quick three-game homestand and then head back out for their longest road trip of the season.
Those seven matches feature several dates to make up for postponed matches from earlier in the season and feature two back-to-back sets to start and finish the trip.
In their most recent victory, all five starters and one reserve player reached double-digit scoring. Grayson Allen led the offensive way with 30 points.
Jonas Valanciunas delivered a double-double of 19 points and 11 rebounds. Ja Morant delivered an all-round game of 19 points, seven assists, and seven rebounds.
Dillon Brooks (17), Kyle Anderson (16), and Tyus Jones (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Brandon Clarke has missed two games with a calf injury and is doubtful for Friday. De’Anthony Melton (leg) and Justise Winslow (thigh) have missed games two and six games respectively and are both out versus the Knicks.
Jaren Jackson was listed as being out “a few more weeks” in mid-March so he should be gearing up for a return shortly.
New York Knicks
The Knicks are mired in a slump losing five of their last six matches and failing to reach 100 points in three of those contests.
In the most recent game, the Knicks lost a two-point heartbreaker to the Celtics which was especially tough given it vaulted the Celtics ahead of New York.
In his rookie season, RJ Barrett struggled to score particularly from the perimeter. Yet this season he’s continued to develop and is turning into a viable secondary scoring option.
In the loss to the Celtics, he was on fire from deep connecting on all six of his 3-pointers finishing with 29 points plus five rebounds. Julius Randle offered his typical contribution of 22 points, nine rebounds, six assists, three steals, and a block.
Derrick Rose scored 11 off the bench as the only other double-figure contributor for the Knicks.
Mitchell Robinson is out indefinitely with a fractured foot.
