The Memphis Grizzlies' opening performance of this season can only be said to be in line. The team have a record of 7-7 after 14 rounds of regular season and currently rank 8th in the west, making little progress compared with last season. Although they won in the last round after three consecutive defeats, the opponent is only the Rockets with serious decline in strength. However, the Grizzlies' home ability is obviously better than the away game foe the home victory rate has been maintained at more than 60% this season.
Los Angeles Clippers
Los Angeles Clippers easily beat the Spurs 106-92 at home in the last round, and won 8 games in the last 9 games, which shows the overall state is very good. The Clippers currently rank 5th in the west, and the prospect of qualifying the playoffs is optimistic. Moreover, the team have gradually got rid of the problem of Leonard's absence recently. Paul Georgee has played a role and handed over the data of triple-double in recent games. But Clippers' away record this season is poor for a winning rate of only 50%.
Although the Memphis Grizzlies are not as strong as the Clippers, they have won the last two games with the Clippers, resulting in a certain psychological advantage. Coupled with the home advantage of this game, we predict that the Grizzlies will win the game.
