Can Bane-less Grizzlies give red-hot Kings their first loss in 7 games?

This is the second tie these two teams have met this season. Memphis won 125-110 that being with Morant and Bane who combined for 53 points 11 boards and 10 assists, without bane the Grizzlies need Steven Adams and Dillon Brooks, and JJJ to step it up. Brooks played amazingly on both ends on Sunday and we also got a meaningful performance on Sunday.

As the kings look unstoppable lately winning 7 in a row, the Grizz are looking for their 8th straight against Sacramento. With Bane sidelined this still should be a fun matchup. Let's get into some keys of the game.

Perimeter Shooting

Without our best three-point shooter the Grizzlies need to step it up from beyond the arc. LaRavia and Konchar need to be amazing from beyond the arc as well as Dillon Brooks. The three-point shooting without bane is not very well as they are shooting a low 30.3% and are 1-4 without him. Ja also needs to be taking a lot more wide-open threes if he wants to get better and win.

Perimeter Defense

It's really no surprise to see this here as the Grizzlies are one of the worst perimeter defenses. They have given up the fourth most three-pointers per game.. The kings have the second-best three-point differential percentage in the league. When these teams met last month the Kins went 12-38 from deep. Since then Sacramento has shot 38.1% from the triple, led by Kevin Huerter who is shooting 49 percent from deep.


This should be a very intense matchup as the Grizzlies look to pick up win here.
