The season series between the Memphis Grizzlies and New Orleans Pelicans come to an end and it’s the Grizzlies who look for the season sweep here.
However, Anthony Davis and the Pelicans will get a very different look at this Memphis team, as they are missing many key players because of injuries.
While the Grizzlies are in 5th in the West, the Pelicans have really stumbled out of the race.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans had their chances this season, but they’re certainly feeling what the Grizzlies feel right now.
New Orleans battled injuries from the beginning, which includes one to star Anthony Davis. The Pelicans look to play the spoiler role here and gain some momentum as the season is just a month away from ending.
The Pelicans have lost five of their last six and their last game really showed how the season has went. New Orleans allowed 122 points against the Hornets and ended up losing a game where they scored 113.
The Pelicans saw Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis score a combined 78 points in the loss. The first half was the killer as they allowed 71 points to dig themselves a hole.
Memphis has been battling many injuries over the past couple weeks, but for the time being it hasn’t caught up with them.
The Grizzlies lost Marc Gasol for the season and it looked like it caused a chain effect, as many Memphis starters continued to go down.
The latest of the two have been Zach Randolph and Mario Chalmers. Randolph has been battling injury for a few weeks now, while Chalmers just injured with an Achilles’ tendon issue that will force him out for the season.
The Grizzlies may even be without Mike Conley leaving an already thin team, even thinner.
Regardless, Memphis will need many contributors to step up, including their bench. The bench is the main key as they need production to get things going offensively.
