Wednesday will see an East vs. West showdown as the Memphis Grizzlies head north to Canada to take on the Toronto Raptors. This should be an interesting matchup as one of the NBA’s best offenses take on one of its best defenses.
The Grizzlies had been on a hot streak as of a week ago, but things have gotten very bad over the last few games. They have lost two of their last three, including a 104-85 beatdown at home against the Charlotte Hornets on Monday. The bad news only got worse, as point guard Mike Conley was injured in the game.
On the other hand, the Raptors have been playing great over their last few games. They have won three in a row coming into this one, and have one of the best scoring offenses in the league. They dominated the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday, winning 122-98 at home.
The Grizzlies have played their traditional Grit ‘n Grind style of play under new head coach David Fizzdale. They don’t score much, but their defense is wonderful. However, the injury to Mike Conley could cripple the team (pun intended). Conley suffered a back injury in the third quarter of Monday’s loss and could miss four to six weeks.
Conley leads the team in both scoring (19.2 points per game) and assists (5.7 per game), and it is unclear where the Grizzlies will get points without him. Marc Gasol is 2nd on the team with 18.0 points per game, and Zach Randolph is 3rd with 14.2. Without Conley, there is no one on the team but the big boys who score 10 points per contest.
They will have to rely on the defense even more and find points from unexpected sources. The defense is the 3rd best in the NBA, allowing only 97.3 points per game.
The Raptors are one of the most fun teams in the NBA this season to watch. They score lots of points, force lots of turnovers and score lots of points. DeMar DeRozan is having a career year and is currently 3rd in the league in scoring with 29.2 points per game.
The Raptors have the 5th best scoring offense in the NBA, putting up 109.1 points per contest. They rank towards the bottom in both rebounding (26th rank with 42.4 per game) and assists (27th rank with 19.4), but they have been able to rely on one of the best backcourts in basketball to put them in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference.
They are middle of the road defensively, allowing 104.3 points per game and ranking 16th in the league. However, they are great at forcing turnovers and lead the NBA in points off turnovers and fast break points.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
The Grizzlies looked like a sure fire playoff team in the Western Conference just a week ago. Now they’ve lost two of their three and their only good perimeter player in Conley. The defense should still be good, but it’s hard to see them scoring enough to keep this one close. Toronto is one of the best offenses in the NBA and should win this one handily at home.
