How can the Grizzlies beat the Knicks?

Due to the New York Knicks’ inconsistencies, it has actually opened up opportunities for their role players. If the Memphis Grizzlies want to take a win from New York, they need to be as competitive when the reserves are in.

In New York’s last game, their bench unit combined for 61 points. On the other hand, the Grizzlies’ reserves accounted for just 15 points in their last game, a loss to the Sixers.

New York can struggle on offence, and especially defence, but with multiple contributors they’ve shown the ability to overcome their errors. The Grizzlies’ success will be riding on the contributions of their role players, just as much as their starters.

Grizzlies Key Player: (G) Ja Morant


Newly-minted NBA All-Star Ja Morant hopes to continue his impressive run against the New York Knicks. Despite a strong showing in his last match, Morant failed to secure the victory.

In a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers in Morant’s last game, he posted 37 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists on 15 of 30 shooting from the field. Morant’s offence was on point, but in the overtime period he wasn’t able to see his team through.

Morant has been fantastic for the Grizzlies all season, but while his skills can’t be denied his decision-making can improve. After going 0-5 from three-point range and committing 9 turnovers in his last game, Morant must clean up his game to help beat the Knicks.

How Can the Knicks Beat the Grizzlies?

The New York Knicks certainly aren’t famous for their defensive standards. When they take on the Memphis Grizzlies, New York will need to able to protect the paint.

In Memphis’ last game, they shot 46.1% from the field, despite going just 6 of 20 from three-point range. Their playmaking and ball movement was average at best, collecting just 18 assists on 47 field goals.

The Knicks need to slow down the Grizzlies at the point of attack, and recover well to Memphis’ few shooters. With some excellent shot-blockers in the paint, New York certainly have the potential to influence the Grizzlies’ offence.

Knicks Key Player: (G-F) RJ Barrett


The New York Knicks finally beat their losing streak, but they’ll need a stronger performance out of RJ Barrett if they want to beat a much more talented Memphis Grizzlies team.

Barrett is coming off of a game where he posted just 11 points, 4 rebounds, and 1 assist on 4 of 14 shooting from the field. He was still a plus-12 on the evening, but Barrett’s team-high 4 turnovers is a place he can improve on.

Against one of the league’s top defences, Barrett needs to be locked in. The Grizzlies don’t own the best three-point defence in the league, so Barrett needs to be efficient from range.
