The Grizzlies have kept opponents to under 92.4 points per game; the best defense in the NBA. They are now on a 5 game winning streak beating some good teams like Lakers, Clippers, Boston, Portland and Sacramento. Grizzlies have relied a lot of their performances on from a talented group of individuals led by Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph, Courtney Lee, Tony Allen and Mike Conley. Gasol in particular has been in ripe form leading from the front averaging 23 points per game in his last 4 outings, and looking to repeat similar performances tonight.
The Rockets had been right up there with the Grizzlies for a good opening season record going 7-2 early on, but a spate of injuries to key players like Howard, Beverley and Jones as well as back ups in Canaan, definitely making the task difficult for them and especially James Harden; who has to shoulder most of the responsibility. Trevor Ariza has also been forced to put up ill-advised shot in the scoring efforts and brought down his shooting average to 32% over the last 9 games.
The Grizzlies should be able to show up with some top defense and be able to contain the Rockets tonight even at their home floor and steal this victory tonight.
