With 25 games remaining the Grizzlies return from the break trailing the Nuggets by five games but holding a three game edge over the Kings.
Other teams will be chasing both the Grizzlies and Nuggets like the Kings, Clippers, Suns, and Mavericks but just like Memphis will discover making up a ton of ground down the stretch is tough.
Helping Memphis is they have the seventh easiest strength of schedule down the stretch and should have Steven Adams back shortly after they return.
Offensively, the Grizzlies score 116.1 points per game ranked ninth overall. Memphis shoot 47.0% from the field ranking 19th, and 34.5% from the perimeter ranking 24th.
Memphis still owns the best opponent field goal percentage of 44.9% while limiting opponents to 112.2 points per game and 35.7% ranking eighth and 12th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Steven Adams C (OUT indefinitely —PCL strain)
- Luke Kennard SG (OUT —non-COVID Illness
Like the Grizzlies, the 76ers have their sights set on finishing atop their conference but have ample work to do. Philly sits in third trailing the Celtics by 3.0 games and the Bucks by 2.5 games while they hold a 2.0 game edge over the Cavaliers and 4.5 versus the Nets.
Making their challenge tougher is Philly has the hardest strength of schedule remaining and 25 games left to play.
This season, the 76ers score an average of 114.4 points per game ranking 16th. Philly shoots 48.3% from the field and 38.4% from the perimeter, ranking eighth and fourth respectively.
Defense is where the 76ers make their mark allowing the third-fewest opponent points per game with 110.5 and the second-best perimeter defense at 34.4% while ranking 13th for opponent field goal percentage allowing opponents to shoot 47.2%.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Both teams have designs on moving up the ladder with the goal of winning the Conference but Philly’s schedule is horrific while the Grizz have to hold off the charging West and simultaneously erase Denver’s five-game lead.
Perhaps a better goal for each would be securing the second seed in order to have home court in the Conference semi-finals.
Health as always will play a role as Memphis sure needs Adams to do major damage and Embiid’s foot remains a concern although he’s been beasting of late.
I could flip a coin on this match with sound arguments for either side, however, Embiid not being on the injury report while Adams and new sharpshooter Kennard out has me favoring Philly for the win — but I’ll still take the points.
