Memphis looks to build off their come from behind win over the Pistons on Thursday when they welcome in the New York Knicks on Saturday night.
The Knicks could never get over that hump against the Nets as Brooklyn led throughout, always seeming to have a 4 point lead or more.
This will mark the first meeting for these two teams since 3/23 of last season. Memphis went into MSG and handled New York with ease as they routed them by 21.
The Knicks had won 5 of 6 before they stumbled in Brooklyn as they finally had battled back to the .500 mark, but that didn’t last long.
New York will take their 9-13 road record into Memphis on Saturday as they continue to look for stability and consistency from everyone.
With Carmelo Anthony sidelined, Arron Affalo and Jose Calderon really stepped up against Brooklyn. Affalo had 18 points and Calderon dropped in 16 and grabbed 7 rebounds in the loss.
Kristaps Porzingis continued his roller coaster of a rookie season, this time trending upwards as he finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds for another double-double. With Melo’s status still in question for Saturday, Porzingis will continue to have a giant role offensively.
Derrick Williams will look to repeat his performance as he finished with 31 points and 7 rebounds. Williams shot 11 of 17 from the field for one of his best performances of the season.
The Grizzlies have tinkered with their lineup time and time again, but may have finally found the answer.
F Zach Randolph was inserted back into the starting lineup and he flourished as he put in 13 points,3 rebounds, and 3 assists on his stat line.
Memphis really got production from the entire team, one of their best offensive efforts of the season as 5 players had 13 points or more. Chalmers (25), Gasol (19), Barnes (18), Green (16), and Randolph (13) all played a role in the win.
This has been the problem all season long for the Grizzlies in losses as they usually get production from just 1 or 2 players.
The Grizzlies bring in a 14-7 SU record at home this season which is a very ironic stat line considering they are actually being outscored by an average of 2 points. They are scoring 97.8 points per game while conceding 99.5.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Grizzlies have gone back to their lineup from earlier in the season, with the Vets leading the way. Randolph, Gasol, and now Chalmers have proven they can work together and are the best lineup the Grizzlies can put out there.
Carmelo Anthony and his health will certainly be a major factor here. There’s a good chance he doesn’t play and even if he does, he won’t be at 100%.
