Washington Wizards vs Memphis Grizzlies key stats

The Wizards started the season strongly, but have tailed off. Over their last five games, they have lost four. They have dropped below .500 after suffering their latest defeat against the Nets.

They were thoroughly outclassed across all fronts in their 86-128 defeat against the Nets. On the night, the Nets were just far better. The Wizards only converted 23% of their attempted threes and went 36% from the floor. Losing against a better team is one thing, but that performance put into perspective how far the Wizards still need to go.

What makes their loss even worse is the fact that the Nets demolished them by over 40 points without even fielding all of their best players.

Bradley Beal was the only Wizards player to come out of that game with some sort of quality as he led his side in scoring, with 20 points on the night. He has been consistent again this season, averaging 21.6 points per game over the opening nine games.

This is the seventh straight year where he is averaging more than 20 points per game and has established himself as the leader of the Wizards’ offense.

The Grizzlies have been good lately and have started the season quite well. They have gone 6-3 at the start of this season, placing them in the third spot in the Western Conference standings.

They are coming into this game on the back of a two-game win streak, the latest of which came against the Charlotte Hornets. In their 130-99 win against the Hornets, it was Dillon Brooks who led all scorers with a 23-4-4 performance. The Grizzlies dominated the boards, with 60, and scored 60 points in the paint.

Ja Morant has been on a hot streak of form. Although he wasn’t as productive against Charlotte, he has been the player to look out for. Morant is averaging 29-5-7 this season, making him one of the most influential guards in the West.

His efficiency has been the factor that sets him apart from everyone. He is shooting at a ridiculous clip with a 3-point accuracy of 50%. If he continues his tormenting run, the Grizzlies could finish near the top in the West.

Washington Wizards vs Memphis Grizzlies Best Pick:

Ja Morant has been superb for the Grizzlies once again this season. He has been particularly impressive from deep this season, making 50% of his attempted 3-pointers.

Morant is incredibly dangerous at the rim due to his incredible athleticism, but this season he has added the 3-point game to his skill set, making him one of the best scorers in the NBA.

Ja Morant; Points: Over 27.5 (-111)

Washington Wizards vs Memphis Grizzlies Final Prediction:

The Wizards and the Grizzlies are on completely opposite ends of the spectrum. The Wizards are coming off an embarrassing drubbing, while the Grizzlies were the ones who inflicted the damage in their last game.

This game is one-sided in favor of the Grizzlies, considering their recent form and squad depth.

Memphis Grizzlies: -10 (-109)
