This Tuesday will see a Western Conference matchup between one team that is fighting for playoff positioning and another team that is fighting for more ping pong balls. The last place Phoenix Suns will travel across the Mississippi River to take on the 6th place Memphis Grizzlies.
The Suns have lost 12 of their last 15 games and five straight on the road coming into this one. This will be the last of a three-game road trip after the All Star break, and they have been close in both previous losses to the Bulls and the Bucks.
The Grizzlies avoided losing three in a row with a 105-98 road win against the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.
They have lost three of their last five, but this game provides them a great opportunity to begin a winning streak.
Although their record does not show it, the Suns have played relatively well since the All Star break.
They fought the Milwaukee Bucks down to the end on Sunday, and it was only a Tony Snell corner three in the closing seconds that sealed their fate. If the Phoenix brass are only shooting for lottery positioning at this point, the players certainly do not know it.
Phoenix comes into this one ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 107 points per game. They rank 8th in rebounding with 44.5 but 29th in assists with only 18.9 per contest. Defensively, the Suns are only one spot away from dead last, allowing 112.5 points per game.
Eric Bledsoe leads the way for the Suns with 21.3 points, 6.3 assists and 5.0 rebounds a night. Devin Booker is right behind him in scoring, adding 21.1 points per contest.
T.J. Warren and Brandon Knight have both contributed well and are scoring in double figures.
The Grizzlies have not exactly looked sharp over the last few weeks. They have consistently fallen behind in most of their games, even though they have fought their way back to win many of them.
Although they have lost three of their last five, this game provides the perfect opportunity to string two wins together and get back on the winning track.
Most of the struggles for Memphis come from their anemic offense. They score only 100.8 points per game which ranks 27th in the NBA. The Grizzlies rank 18th in rebounding with 43.5 and 25th in rebounding with 20.8.
Their defense continues to stifle opposition, allowing only 99.6 points per game and ranking 3rd in the league.
Marc Gaol leads the Grizzlies in scoring with 20.5 points along with 6.2 rebounds a game.
Mike Conley guides the offense with 19.4 points and 6.2 assists a night, and Zach Randolph contributes 14.2 points and 8.3 rebounds per contest.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
Although both teams have struggled lately, the Grizzlies are clearly the better team. They may have trouble scoring against good competition, but that has not necessarily been the case against the teams at the bottom of the NBA rankings.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Grizzlies -10
The Suns have been able to put up points against some teams, but they have trouble against the elite defenses in the league. Memphis should win this one handily.
