The Memphis Grizzlies enter this contest following a bad 107-82 loss to the Miami Heat, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. This team has lost four straight and 14 of its last 15.
The Washington Wizards are also coming off a loss. They fell 113-112 on the road to the Los Angeles Clippers, but they’ve won two out of their last three, as of this writing.
Note that John Wall is not expected to play in this contest.
Memphis enters this game with the 28th-ranked scoring offense. They post 97.6 points per contest.
Defensively, this team has done much better at keeping its identity in a post-Zach Randolph, Vince Carter, Tony Allen era.
The Grizzles are allowing opponents to score just 101.8 points per night, which is good enough for sixth in the Association.
Against the Wizards, it will be crucial that the defense steps up and makes life tough on Bradley Beal. In this stretch without Wall, he’s put up a new career high and taken over the scoring load on a nightly basis.
The Grizz must do what they can to make him uncomfortable on the perimeter, but the bigs will also have to watch out for his backdoor cuts to the rim.
Look for Memphis to turn this game into a slog early.
The Wizards aren’t exactly known for playing at a blinding pace (they’re 16th in the league), but they’ll look to get out an run in this one—even without Wall running the show—considering the Grizzlies are dead last in that category.
So far this season, the Wizards are posting 106.4 points per game. That number is good enough for 13th in the NBA.
Defensively, Washington is allowing opponents to drop 104 points per night. That number is good enough for 13th in the Association.

Although the line isn’t set at this time, we’re comfortable picking one team as the “pace controller” in this one: the Wizards.
Washington, even sans Wall, should be able to get out and run, which should land them a double-digit win.
