You have to think that the Grizzlies will be well aware of the fact that they are heading into this one with a worse record than the lowly Suns. This team has cratered pretty bad and I am not seeing how a little holiday break suddenly gets them back on track. Things should get worse and might not get better this season.
I am not sure what the future will hold for the Suns but under their new leadership they seems to be getting more competitive. I just don’t know about the talent level.
The Grizzlies got a win against the Clippers just before the holiday. It was a seemingly rare occurrence in which they combined their normally good defense with enough scoring.
Tyreke Evans was the star with 30 points, 11 assists and 7 rebounds. He has always been interesting as an aggressive scoring point but there is a reason the team’s he has been on haven’t exactly flourished.
Marc Gasol was his usual reliable self with 17 points and 15 rebounds. Those two veterans are the only players whose numbers you can count on from game to game.
Mike Conley is still out and will be through the New Year. Though I am not a fan losing your second best player definitely messes with your overall depth.
Memphis is hopeful rookie Dillon Brooks can be the versatile player he was in the NBA that he was in college. So far the returns have not been great but they are giving him some run.
The Suns have won three of their last five, a run of success made all the more surprising because it has been without their top player, Devin Booker. Booker has been out with a groin injury for a couple of weeks but is expected to rejoin the lineup for this one. He is their best scorer by far.
With Booker out TJ Warren has really stepped up. He has back to back to back 20+ point games and is enjoying a career season. He is a rare wing who is not all that great a 3 point shooter. The question is whether he might continue to progress a la DeMar DeRozan or whether he has already reached his ceiling.
Phoenix is not going to see any kind of sustained success until they can find a little bit of balance between offense and defense. Right now veteran Tyson Chandler is the only player who consistently puts in the effort on defense and attacking the glass. This group does not always make good decisions either.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
I can see Phoenix being the favourite in this one for just the third time all season. They are 1-2SUATS in those games but I don’t see how they can’t be in that role.
Memphis is a mess. They have not performed well in most situations this seasons including as an underdog. You have to wonder if they have not just already given up on the season.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Suns -1.
As long as the line isn’t silly you can get behind the home Suns. Nothing more than -5 or -6. It is still Phoenix we are talking about.
