Hey folks, as of right now the Memphis Grizzlies are in the NBA Playoffs! The Phoenix Suns lost late last night to tie up their overall record with the Grizzlies which allows Memphis to leapfrog into the 8th seed with a tiebreaker over the Suns.
The Grizzlies have no room for error, however, and need to keep it in 5th gear for this week as Phoenix (3 games) and Dallas (2 games) both have abbreviated schedules, although the Suns and Mavs each have a Westy Big Boy to deal with, the Clippers and Warriors, respectively.
The Grizzlies look ahead to a double dose of back-to-backs this week, the first coming on Tuesday and Wednesday with a home game vs. Portland and an away game in New Orleans, and finish up this week with their 3rd-consecutive-weekend-B2B on the road at Toronto and Philadelphia.
