The Memphis Grizzlies have won nine of their last ten games in what has been the best stretch of Grizz basketball in recent memory. The best part? They’ve won each and every one of these games without Ja Morant, including a performance that saw the team break the NBA’s record for margin of victory.
Even with a single loss, this Grizz team feels invincible right now. Their sole loss in the last ten games came in a close contest, so nobody has fully outplayed Memphis in weeks.
Now, Memphis will be taking on the first team they beat during that frame of time again.
Can the Memphis Grizzlies’ winning streak come full circle with a win over the Sacramento Kings?
Jack Williams (Site Expert): The Grizzlies’ first game without Ja Morant came against the Sacramento Kings, kicking off the current tear that they’ve been on. This win came in the form of a 27-point blowout in FedEx Forum with strong games from Jaren Jackson Jr., Desmond Bane, and Dillon Brooks. I think that same trio will show out, though I’d expect the Kings to play Memphis a bit tougher on their home court. I’m taking the Grizzlies in a pretty close one.

Jacob Ellerbee: The Grizzlies are rolling into Sac-Town hoping to compete against the Kings. It remains to be seen if the league will postpone the game amid Sacramento’s Covid-19 outbreak. If the game is played, we may see former Kings legend Doug Christie at the helm as interim coach Alvin Gentry has tested positive for the virus, according to The Associated Press. The Grizz won by 27 points in the first meeting this season and with the way Memphis is playing, they’ll be able to handle a depleted Kings team.

Noah Hancock: The Grizzlies will be looking to make the Kings look like fools in this matchup as the hot Grizzlies are coming off a dominant win continuing to make an impact on the league. We should continue to see another dominant performance and for the Grizzlies core to snowball their confidence. Grizzlies take the crown in this one making 10-1 in the last 11 games.
