It's a match between two opposite trending teams when the Phoenix Suns and Memphis Grizzlies face off. The Suns have lost eight of their last 10 games, as they've struggled to initiate their offense - averaging 103.4 points on 24.9 assists while committing 16.2 turnovers per game. The Grizzlies, on the other hand, have won nine of their last 10 by averaging 122.4 points on 49.0% from the field and collecting 50.1 rebounds to their opponents' 45.5.

The Suns and Grizzlies are tied 1-1 through their current regular season series. The Grizzlies are averaging 116.5 points against the Suns on 44.5% from the field and 28.3% from the three-point range. The Suns are averaging 112.5 points per game on 46.5% from the field and 39.3% from three-point range.

Given Phoenix's aggressive three-point defense, they could still give Memphis some trouble. However, it's been Memphis' dominance on the glass and in the paint that is likely to give the Phoenix Suns trouble of their own. They've not beaten teams by a massive margin through their recent run, but the Suns' lack of offensive execution due to injury will likely push the points margin in Memphis' favor.
