Synopsis

Though I hate the quote, this December stretch will show us "what the Memphis Grizzlies are made of". We all remember how well this team started out last year before hitting the wall in December. In hindsight you can say the 7-7 stretch was the difference between being the 5th seed in the Western Conference and a top-3 seed. Now the West is deeper and more talented than it was last season.

Excluding the Orlando Magic, each team on this list has a serious chance to make the playoffs, depending how the chips fall for each club. If Dave Joerger can get this club to win at least 9 games, they'll have made off good. Fatigue won't be an issue as 10 of the 14 games are at home.

  • Toughest Game: Dec. 11 vs. Oklahoma City - If Russell Westbrook is back this will be extremely close as always.
  • My favorite game: Besides the one on my birthday (Dec. 23!!), the one against New Orleans (Dec. 13) will be fun! NOP will be a league pass darling and their afflux of players against ours will make for a good game.
  • Trap Game: December 23 vs. Utah. Easy way to take a mid-tier opponent lightly when three top-tier opponents follow right after.
  • Win Loss Prediction: 9-5
