On this week’s episode of The Starting 5 Podcast, we recapped the Grizzlies’ first set of games with their actual starting lineup and rotation, discussed Ja Morant’s comments from his interview with Malika Andrews, and predicted the upcoming week of games as we head into a new year

To close the show, we predicted the Grizzlies’ upcoming games this week. The 4 games the Grizzlies have this week are:

Happy New Year everyone!
