It feels a little bit early to #BelieveMemphis, right?
But that appears to be the case for some. The Memphis Grizzlies are currently 22-16, good for the 7th seed in the competitive (at least the first seven seeds) Western Conference. A week of wins could put them as high as the four seed with a ton of basketball to play.
But some are nervous about the play of the team coming out of their back to back losses in Los Angeles. The defense has struggled lately, Mike Conley is not himself...things are just off. And now? A Grizzlies team that is 6-8 including their improbable win against Golden State the last 14 games faces a hungry and likely angry Warriors team in ORACLE Arena tonight.
Maybe this step up in competition is just what the Grizzlies needed. Our friends at numberFire give Memphis a 15.2% chance at winning this game. I like those odds.
Sometimes, you just have to believe.
