Ready for something shocking?
The Memphis Grizzlies are about to have a tough schedule.
Tonight's game against the Houston Rockets is followed by three days of rest and a game on Wednesday night against the Toronto Raptors. Two winnable games considering the ability to rest for a veteran team, even though Toronto is one of the best squads in the NBA.
After that? A six-game road trip over the span of nine days, with two back-to-backs included. Match-ups with the bludgeoning Utah Jazz and the explosive Oklahoma City Thunder. While there are winnable games (Phoenix, for example), this trip will test the Grizzlies simply from a scheduling standpoint.
It makes this game tonight, at home, against a Houston team dealing with their fourth game in five nights, that much more vital to win.
