Friday night NBA sees an inter-conference battle between the Washington Wizards and Memphis Grizzlies.
This contest tips off at 9:30 p.m. ET with the Grizz having the homecourt advantage inside the comfy confines of FedEx Arena.
Washington enters this contest having won their last three contests against the New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls and Houston Rockets.
That three-game winning streak is part of a stretch that has seen them win four out of their last six.
The Wizards enter this game averaging 106.7 points per night. That number is good enough to place them 12th in the league.
In terms of offensive efficiency, Washington jumps up to 12th in the Association. They are averaging 106.6 points per 100 possessions.
Defensively, Washington is allowing opponents to score 104 points per game. That number is good enough for 1th in the Association.
From an efficiency standpoint, the Wizards jump up again, this time to eighth place. They are giving up just 103.9 points every 100 possessions.
Memphis enters this game posting 98.9 points per night. That number is only good enough for 29th in the NBA, one spot out of last place.
In terms of offensive efficiency, the Grizz are slightly better, but still in the bottom 10 of the league. They’re 24th in that category, scoring just 103.2 points per 100 possessions.
Defensively, the Grizzlies are giving up 102.4 points per contest. That number puts them at eighth in the league, but they drop down to 17th when it comes to defensive efficiency, giving up 106.6 points per 100 possessions.
Entering this game, Memphis is coming off a 113-105 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
This is not a .500 team by any measure this season; however, they have gone win-loss-win-loss over their last seven outings.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
This is a battle of two teams headed in two very different directions. We can’t take Memphis’ .500 play as of late too seriously; however, we can absolutely take stock in the fact that the Wizards are trending upward.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Wizards ATS
If the Grizzlies can truly come out and control the pace, turning into a slog and a defensive battle, this has a chance to be a close game with a low final score.
That said, we’re not buying into Memphis’ ability to do it against a John Wall- and Bradley Beal-led team.
Give this one to the Wizards by a convincing margin.
