Game Preview

With six games left, it's starting to look like the Grizzlies will be fighting for home-court advantage up till the last game. Seeking a fifth win in six games, we travel to SacTown, where the opponent is a struggling Kings: losers of four-straight at home.

In the loss to the Lakers on Friday, Mike Conley continued leading the charge. However, he was unable to hit a layup before the buzzer to tie the game.

We have defeated the Kings three times by an average of 18.3 points, and, on January 7, put on a 113-81 smackdown victory.

The fifth-place Grizzlies are right behind Denver for the third seed in the West, while the Clippers own the fourth seed. It's gonna be an interesting time.
