A Key Stat To Look At For The Grizzlies' 4-game Road Trip

With the Memphis Grizzlies now on the road against four west coast teams (by order: Trail Blazers, Clippers, Nuggets, and Jazz), it is important to sustain their momentum with their recent four-game winning streak after their loss against the defending champions, Miami Heat. With 21 games left in the regular season, getting as much wins as they can is important to be at the higher echelon in the tough, tough Western Conference.

As I looked at the different statistics from ESPN.com, one key stat in possibly beating these teams is their points allowed/game. They are currently 1st overall with 89.4 points allowed. Note that these four teams that they'll face are part of the Top 15 in points/game as a team this season- Portland (14th, 98.0 points/game), LAC (8th, 101.1 points/game), Denver (3rd, 105.8 points/game), and Utah (13th, 98.3 points/game) and that's why the Grizz should be at their best defensively to somehow shut them down in the offensive end and increase their chances of winning these games.

The Grizzlies are good in what we call "grind-out" games and if their offensive numbers in these games might suffer a bit because of their efforts on the defensive end, that might turn out to be a better trade off for Grizzlies' fans.
