On Sunday February 4 the Memphis Grizzlies arrive at Air Canada Centre to take on the Toronto Raptors. In their last game the Grizzlies lost by two points to the Blake Griffin led Pistons.
After losing a nail biter in Washington Thursday, the Raptors completed the back to back at home Friday in a surprisingly energetic effort to beat the Portland Trail Blazers.
Last season, the squads split the season series, but the Raptors won the opener in Memphis this year and have lost just once to Memphis in the last five. The Grizzlies hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors in 23 of their 44 matches.
It doesn’t require a great deal of thought to see through what the Memphis Grizzlies management’s plans are. The choices being made regarding the walking wounded highlight Memphis’ goal.
Memphis is holding out Tyreke Evans citing an arm injury. In reality the franchise is shopping Evans and given the recent rash of injuries is exercising caution in order to make sure they are able to trade their asset and gain palpable returns.
Originally, Mike Conley hit the injured reserves due to a sore Achilles. This has been updated to a small bone protrusion in his heel. Yet, the decision to shut down Conley for the rest of the season feels more like the franchise committing to tank.
The only problem with this choice is the players are still trying to win as evidenced in the Grizzlies last two games which were lost by a combined six points
Also out are Chandler Parsons (knee soreness) and Mario Chalmers (hamstring) who has missed the last two games.
DeMar DeRozan won January’s Eastern player of the month and reminded the Blazers he’s not just a mid range, paint driving scorer as he dropped another six shots from deep to showcase his ever expanding offense. In all the Raptors hit 19 triples, a season high
Following the Wizards game the Raptors next two opponents were already sitting in Toronto waiting. This punctuates how hectic the Raptors schedule has been recently. Having already finished their opposite coast road games they embarked on a hectic segment to take the squad through to the All-Star Break.
While it’s common for teams to play back-to-back sets the noon tip off represents the third game Toronto will play in 65 hours. Fortunately the easy victory over the Blazers allowed Dwane Casey to rest most of his starters the entire fourth quarter.
C.J. Miles missed his third game due to a sore knee and his presence Sunday is questionable.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction: Grizzlies +12
The Raptors boast winning records vs. sub .500 squads (18-5) teams as well as teams over .500 (15-11). Additionally, Toronto has the best eastern home record (20-4). What they can’t bring to this match is rested legs whereas the Grizzlies haven’t played since Thursday.
Memphis are still a gritty squad which can take a toll on tired teams. Factor in Grizzlies Dillon Brooks is Canadian, so don’t be surprised if he becomes the x-factor in this match.

Ultimately, the Raptors depth and home court crowd should give them the edge.
