How Can the Grizzlies Beat the Nets?
The Brooklyn Nets are 2-3 over their last five games, but that doesn’t mean that they should be taken lightly. If the Memphis Grizzlies want to steal a victory, their defence must be more disciplined than ever.
Ranking 15th in the NBA in free-throw attempts allowed, the Memphis Grizzlies must be careful with their aggressive defence. The Nets have averaged 20.6 free throw attempts per game over their last five, while attempting 25 or more in 3 of those 5 matches.
The Nets are so good at scoring the ball that the Memphis Grizzlies can’t afford to give them extra opportunities. One of the best teams in terms of blocks and steals, Memphis must maintain their defensive standards while not fouling.
Grizzlies Key Player: (G) Ja Morant
Welcome to the dark 🥷
— Memphis Grizzlies (@memgrizz) December 25, 2021
One of the league’s biggest rising stars, Ja Morant has led his Memphis Grizzlies to the top four of the Western Conference. He’ll face his biggest test of the season, the Brooklyn Nets!
With so many players missing over recent games, Morant has taken the lead for the Grizzlies. Over Memphis’ four-game winning streak, Morant has averaged 30.5 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 5.8 assists on 53.4% shooting from the field.
A big reason for Morant’s success has been his three-point shooting. Going 12 of 18 from deep over his last three games, Morant’s success from range makes him near unstoppable.

How Can the Nets Beat the Grizzlies?
The Brooklyn Nets have lost two straight and now face on of the most in-form teams in the NBA. To beat the Grizzlies, the Nets must be the winning team on the boards.
Over the course of their four-game win streak, the Memphis Grizzlies have outrebounded their opponents by an average of 11.2 per game. Brooklyn have won the rebounding battle in their last two games, but still came out on the losing end.
The Memphis Grizzlies are a rim-attacking team, so Brooklyn can’t be complacent after contesting shots. While they may want to leak out on the break, the newly healthy Brooklyn Nets must secure the glass before encouraging their spectacular offence.
Nets Key Player: (G) James Harden
— Brooklyn Nets (@BrooklynNets) January 2, 2022
Harden has performed brilliantly since his return, despite the Nets going 2-2 in those games. If they hope to get back on the winning trend, the Nets need Harden to maintain his play.
Over his last four games, Harden has been his usual brilliant self on offence. He is averaging 35.5 points, 12.0 assists, and 11.0 rebounds over his last four matches.
The difference for Harden when he enters the game is his ability to get to the free-throw line. Averaging 13.8 free throw attempts per game over his last four, Harden’s ability to draw fouls could cause massive issues for the Grizzlies.
