On Monday, January 18th, Western Conference foes will meet as the Phoenix Suns and Memphis Grizzlies will face off for the first time this season on Martin Luther King Jr. Day on TNT.
Phoenix has had a positive beginning to their year after finishing last season in the bubble with an impressive 8-game win streak to finish just short of a chance to fight their way into the playoffs. It was their longest win streak since 2010 and was the longest undefeated stretch to finish a season by a team that missed the playoffs in NBA history. In the offseason the Suns made a big splash in free agency by trading for veteran point guard Chris Paul who had a resurgence last year in Oklahoma City. Phoenix hopes to see a similar effect with their young core especially with help elevating young star Devin Booker by taking pressure off his shoulders.
The Suns have had three straight cancellations due to COVID measures but remain optimistic of playing on Monday. Devin Booker is the leader of the Suns and is posting a statline of 23 ppg, 4.3 apg, and 3.3 rpg. His new running mate Chris Paul is averaging 13.3 ppg, 8.7 apg, and 4.6 rpg. Young big man Deandre Ayton has shown promise with a double double average of 12.5 ppg with 11.3 rpg.

The Grizzlies have hit a hot streak and enter with a 4 game winning streak to break their record even on the season. Last game marked the return of young superstar point guard Ja Morant who had been held out for three weeks due to an ankle sprain. The Grizzlies held off a 76ers fourth quarter comeback and won 106-104, led by Morant with 17 points and 6 assists.
The Grizzlies will be without Jaren Jackson Jr., Justice Winslow, Killian Tillie, and Jontay Porter due to injuries.
Jonas Valanciunas will also miss the game due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols. These absences will leave Memphis shorthanded and place a lot of the burden onto Morant which will require Kyle Anderson, Dillon Brooks, and Brandon Clarke to step up in order to secure the win.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
NBA Scheduling has resulted in many back to back matchups this season in order to limit frequent travel and exposure to other teams. These two teams just played Saturday which led to a dominating 120-100 win for the Suns.
The Grizzlies held a 4 point win at halftime but fell apart in the second half and were outscored by 24. Memphis turned the ball over a staggering 22 times and were outscored by 18 points in the paint even with Bam Adebayo pouring in 28 himself along with 7 rebounds and 6 assists.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Suns -3.5
The matchup will feature two budding young cores between the Phoenix Suns and the Memphis Grizzlies. Both teams will be fighting for a playoff spot this season and this game will serve as a quality test for both sides. The theme of this game will be rest vs rust as Phoenix has not played in a week due to cancellations and it will be interesting to see how they respond in their first game of action.
I see Phoenix entering this matchup rested and hungry to get back to their style of play. This game will be a close one throughout but Chris Paul is known to thrive in late game moments and will be the difference maker in this one.
