Are the Grizzles on Course for Victory Over the Knicks?
This week in the NBA, we have an intriguing matchup between the Memphis Grizzlies and New York Knicks. While the Knicks will be favored coming into the 7:30 ET tip-off at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday, December 6, the Grizzlies may have gained an advantage in the last few days.
Prior to their home matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Grizzlies were coming off of a defeat to the Cleveland Cavaliers which set them on an 11-game losing streak. But, by the skin of their teeth, Memphis defeated Minnesota in a thrilling game that concluded 95-92. Now, high on confidence but carrying a rather weak 3-7 away record, the Grizzlies will meet a battered Knicks.

Coming into this game, the New York Knicks haven’t been in great form themselves. Currently on a two-game losing streak, a win when hosting the Miami Heat broke up another three-game losing streak, setting them with a 1-5 record in their last six games and now looking from the outside in on the playoff places. To make matters worse, the Knicks have also incurred a couple of high-profile injuries.
For the game against Memphis, the Knicks will definitely be without their second highest scorer Tim Hardaway Jr. due to a stress fracture in the wingman’s leg. But, to make matters far worse, top scorer and star bigman Kristaps Porzingis could also miss the game. The 7’3’’ Latvian missed the trip to Indiana earlier in the week due to an ankle injury and illness, and he may miss even more time. Without the Knicks’ two biggest offensive weapons, the Grizzlies, who are expecting to have Chandler Parsons back in the lineup, could well defy the odds and take this game
