(30-48) New York Knicks vs. Memphis Grizzlies (42-37)
It’s an inter-conference showdown this Friday as the New York Knicks head down south to take on the Grizzlies in Memphis. Neither team is playing particularly good basketball lately, but the Knicks took the last meeting with the Grizzlies 111-104 at The Garden.
New York is coming off an impressive 100-91 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday. Despite the fact that they are out of playoff contention, the Knicks continue to play hard and have now won two of their last three games.
The Grizzlies, on the other hand, have been flat-out bad lately.
They are currently on a three-game losing streak, including a 103-100 home loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.
New York Knicks
It seems that no one told the New York bench that they should be tanking at this point. The Knicks are officially out of playoff contention, yet the players continue to put in effort and even notch a few wins.
Surprisingly, their defensive play has been the key to recent success. They have won two of their last three and kept both opponents under 95 points.
The Knicks score an average of 104.5 points per game which ranks 18th in the league.
They rank 5th in rebounding with 45.3 and 19th in rebounding with 21.8 per contest. On the other end, the Knicks allow 108 points per game which ranks 23rd in scoring defense.
The Grizzlies are currently riding a three-game losing streak, including a 108-103 loss to the Lakers on Sunday. They then fell at San Antonio and at home to the Thunder.
Memphis has now lost seven of their last nine games. Although they are securely in the playoffs, they need to pick up some kind of positive momentum going into the postseason.
The Grizzlies offense (or lack thereof) has been the source of their troubles. They score only 100.7 points per game which ranks 28th in the NBA. They are tied for 22nd in rebounding with 42.9 and 21st in assists with 21.3 per contest.
On the other hand, they have the 3rd best scoring defense in the league, allowing only 100.1 points per game.

Free New York Knicks vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
These two teams have had very different seasons, but neither one has been playing well lately. New York has been relatively impressive, winning two of their last three and three of their last five. However, none of those wins were against teams the caliber of Memphis.
The Grizzlies have been hard to figure out over the last few weeks. They have been totally impotent on offense, and they will need to start scoring points.
