Two of the top teams in the Western Conference will face off this Saturday as the San Antonio Spurs travel to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies. Memphis took the last meeting between the two, winning 89-74 on February 6th.
The Spurs are looking to bounce back after a rare home loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday. San Antonio fell 110-106 in that one, but had won the last two previous to it. The Spurs are in 2nd place in the West.
Memphis finally bounced back from their rough patch and have now won three in a row.
They defeated the Hawks 103-91 in Atlanta on Wednesday. The Grizzlies currently hold the 7th spot in the Western Conference.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs were on a roll earlier this month, and they briefly took the 1st place spot in the West from the Golden State Warriors. However, the Warriors have gotten back to winning, and the Spurs have stumbled slightly.
Kawhi Leonard continued his hot streak in Wednesday’s game against the Trail Blazers, scoring 34 points and grabbing nine rebounds.
The rest of the Spurs played relatively well also, but Portland would not be denied and took the game 110-106.
San Antonio has been above average offensively, ranking 12th in the league in scoring offense with 106.5 points per game. They rank 12th in rebounding with 44 and 6th in assists with 24 per contest.
They are one of the league’s best defensive teams– allowing only 98.5 points per game which ranks 2nd in the NBA.
Kawhi Leonard leads the way for the Spurs with 26.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game. LaMarcus Aldridge is getting back into form after missing some time with heart problems.
He contributes 17.3 points and 7.4 rebounds, and Pau Gasol adds 12.1 points and 7.8 rebounds a night.
The Grizzlies appeared to be in a free-fall earlier this month, losing a season-high five games in a row.
They have gotten back on the right track lately though and stopped the bleeding before falling out of playoff contention.
Not surprisingly, it has been the Memphis defense that has led them to victory in their current three-game streak. They have allowed no more than 93 points in a game during that stretch.
Marc Gasol notched his third career triple-double in Wednesday’s victory over Atlanta, with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.
Memphis averages only 101.4 points per game which ranks 27th in the league. They rank 19th in rebounding with 43.2 and 22nd in assists with 21.3 per contest.
The Grizzlies still hang their hats on defense, allowing only 100.4 points per game which is 4th in the league.
Marc Gasol leads the way with 20.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 4.5 assists a night. Mike Conley runs the offense and averages 20.1 points and 6.3 assists per game. Zach Randolph contributes 14.1 points and 8.1 rebounds per contest.
