What to Watch For
Air-Wiggins: Andrew Wiggins has been on fire lately and he’s taking the next step as a star in this league. In his third NBA season, Wiggins is blossoming in front of the NBA spectrum. On Thursday night, the national audience got to watch for themselves as the Wolves’ third-year player took care of business against the 76ers on TNT to the with 35 points, 10 rebounds (tying his career high) and four assists.
Big KAT vs. Big Spain: The Karl-Anthony Towns and Marc Gasol matchup with be something to keep an eye all night. KAT is coming off his sixth double-double of the season, putting up 26 points and 10 rebounds against the Sixers.
THE STORY: November games like this one on Saturday night is crucial for down the road. The Grizzlies must win games like these because they could decide the playoff picture in April when it comes to seeding.
Wiggins cools down just a bit and Memphis takes advantage of that at home, 97-88. In a battle of Western Conference teams, I expect a big game from Gasol and Mike Conley.
