Washington finished the first half of its regular season 8–3.
One of those three losses came against the Clippers, which the Wizards defeated in the final game of the first half.
It felt like more than just a hot little run from a team that had been bad most of the season and will continue to be bad after that little spurt.
Washington looked a different team with a healthy roster and a set starting five of Russell Westbrook, Bradley Beal, Garrison Mathews, Rui Hachimura, and Moritz Wagner.
The worst loss in the 11-game stretch was to this Memphis team, however. After a heartbreaking loss to Boston, Washington turned around and lost by 14 to the Grizzlies at home.
Memphis shot it well and turned it over just half the number of times Washington did. Westbrook and Beal combined to turn it over 14 times, three more than the Grizzlies entire team.
Ja Morant scored 35 points in that game, which was his highest output since the first game of the season.
Brandon Clarke played big minutes and scored an efficient 14. Dillon Brooks and De’Anthony Melton, who came off the bench, each had 20.
Memphis will play 40 games in 71 nights in the second half but reinforcements should be on their way.
Grayson Allen, who didn’t play in that victory over Washington just before the break, should be good to go in time for this game after entering concussion protocol before the All-Star Break.
Then there’s Jaren Jackson Jr., who hasn’t played all season but is expected back at some point in the second half.
The Grizzlies have been rather opaque with Jackson’s status all season, however. His return would likely trigger Clarke to the bench and give Memphis an impressive rotation of bigs up front as it makes a push toward the playoffs.
NBA Betting Trends:

Free Washington Wizards vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction: under the number.
This is going to be a competitive game. The Grizzlies may be just the slightly better team but neither side looks a splash with the tight number.
So give me the under in a game that could start a little slow, given the layoff, and should be hotly contested. Neither team is terrible, defensively. Look for this one to stay under.
