The schedule is about to be a grind for the Memphis Grizzlies.
Of their next ten games (including tonight), eight of them are on the road. Eight of their next ten opponents are currently playoff teams in their respective conferences, and seven of those eight teams will be welcoming the Grizzlies in to their arenas as visitors. Memphis will be taking on the likes of Isaiah Thomas, Russell Westbrook, DeMarcus Cousins...and that is just before New Year's Day! The Clippers, the Warriors, the Jazz, the Thunder again, and the Rockets all await the Grizzlies after New Year's Day.
So should Memphis want to win this one against the Orlando Magic pretty badly? Absolutely.
