Toronto Raptors face the Memphis Grizzlies for the first time in the 2018-19 regular season. The Raptors last played the Heat on Sunday in yet another win to add to their league best record. Meanwhile, the surprising Grizzlies last played Sunday hosting the Knicks and got surprised themselves with the loss.
Last season, the Raptors swept the series.
The hold Grizzlies hold a slim one game advantage in the all-time record meeting having bested the Raptors in 23 of their 45 matches.
If you’ve watched many Raptors games this season you’ll come away with the feeling this squad has just scratched the surface of how good they can be.
With most of the reserves finally healthy and Kawhi Leonard looking stronger and sharper each time out it appears getting the bench unit rolling and locking down defensively are the next steps in Toronto’s progression.
New head coach Nick Nurse said he’s only implemented 70 percent of the defense which is a bit frightening given each game features a couple of five minute periods of absolute lock down Raptors defense.
Although the Raptors rank seventh defensively they hold teams to the third worst field goal percentage which speaks to their ability to alter shots.
Powell (shoulder) is rehabbing the shoulder and is the last Raptors player still on the mend with a goal of a mid December return.
The trio of early surprise teams excelling includes the Clippers and Kings. But the Grizzlies are the club most likely to maintain their performance throughout the season.
This is tied to Memphis history of stellar defense while Marc Gasol looks like a Defensive Player of the Year candidate. Like Toronto, the Grizzlies rank high defensively (3rd) and opponent field goal percent (5th).
Furthermore, a healthy Mike Conley makes all the difference in the world and rookie Jaren Jackson Jr. is the perfect compliment to Gasol.
Dillon Brooks (MCL sprain, his left knee) is expected to be out until January and Chandler Parsons (right knee soreness) is expected out until December.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
The Grizzlies will try to shut down the paint, control pace and force the Raptors to play their style. Conversely, the Raptors will look to showcase their own (better ranked) defense to the hardwood.
Starting with the Hawks game November 21 Toronto play every other day until December 11th which will allow for a steady dose of Kawhi Leonard and opportunity for him to build greater chemistry with the team.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Raptors eek win out. Grizz ATS
Side note: Grizzlies drafted Lowry and Conley the year after eventually trading KLow to Houston, so the bulldog always gets up to play in Memphis. Should be a great point guard battle. Bit of a coin toss, but overall talent lands on Raptors.
