The Memphis Grizzlies will make a trip to Amway arena in Orlando, Florida, to battle the Orlando Magic on Friday night at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. And while both teams enter this matchup with a bit of momentum, it was the Memphis Grizzlies that took the victory in their last meeting versus the Magic thanks to 26 points from Mike Conley.
In all, the Grizzlies were able to halt a two-game losing streak to one of the top echelon teams within the Western Conference in the Houston Rockets in their last time out. And despite James Harden pouring in 57 points in the loss for Houston along with the Rockets battling back from a huge late second-half deficit, Memphis was able to pull out the huge, one point victory.
Conley led the team with 35 points as he went 6-9 from three-point range on the night. On the other hand, Jonas Valanciunas also pumped in 33 points in addition to pulling down 15 rebounds in the much-needed victory for the Grizzlies.
The win was the third straight victory for the Memphis Grizzlies at home as they will look to continue their momentum on Friday night versus the Magic. Nonetheless, Memphis continues to be a short-handed team at this point due to injury as Kyle Anderson along with Avery Bradley are both no-go’s for this contest due to shoulder and shin injuries.
The Orlando Magic continue to create some space amongst themselves and the third-place team in the Atlantic division in the Charlotte Hornets. On the other hand, due to winning three straight games, the second-place Magic now find themselves on the heels of the first place team in the Miami Heat.
Of course, the Magic were able to take advantage of Anthony Davis not being in the lineup for the New Orleans Pelicans in their last time out. In all, Evan Fournier along with Eric Gordon scored 22 and 20 points, respectively, for in an Orlando team that shot 40% from three-point range on the night while ending with 15 three-pointers.
Nikola Vucevic had 15 points along with 17 rebounds for the Magic in the win while Terrence Ross also chipped in 19 points. Nonetheless, the defense was the headliner on the night for Orlando and was a huge catalyst for the win.
The Magic are allowing opponents to shoot 45% from the floor on a nightly basis this season, however, allowed the Pelicans only 37% on the night as the visitors shot a dismal 29% from three-point range. Furthermore, the Magic forced 14 turnovers on the night while heavily outrebounding the Pelicans by a 62-49 margin.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction: Grizz ATS
Orlando Magic is on a roll at home at this point in the season as they have won 6 straight games. Most importantly, the young Magic are a healthy team at this point as well with Gordon beginning to come on late in the season while Vucevic continues to be a double double in the making with every contest.
It is for this reason that I will expect the Magic to pull out a slim 111 – 105 win over an injury plagued Memphis Grizzly squad that has dropped three straight away from home.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Magic by 6
Despite their win over the Houston Rockets in overtime, Memphis continues to be a very shaky team, overall. And while the Magic have had its fair share of inconsistencies on both ends of the floor throughout the season, they are definitely playing much better basketball at this point in the season.
Look for the home team to show and prove versus the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night while also picking up their fourth straight victory in the meantime.
