The Phoenix Suns and the Memphis Grizzlies collide at the FedExForum on Friday night. Here’s a Suns vs Grizzlies Prediction.

Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns have been in great form as they've won seven of their last nine games and they will be eager to build on their current five-game win streak after outlasting the Warriors in a 123-115 home win on Wednesday. Kevin Durant led the team with 32 points, eight rebounds and two assists, Devin Booker added 25 points with eight rebounds and 10 assists while Eric Gordon chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Suns shot 44 percent from the field and 11 of 28 from the 3-point line as they shook off a sloppy start and took control of the contest with a 37-16 second quarter, before they took their foot off the gas after leading by as many as 23 points.

Memphis Grizzlies

Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies have struggled so far this season with just three wins in their first 14 games and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting routed by the Rockets in a 111-91 road loss on Wednesday. Jaren Jackson Jr and Desmond Bane led the team with 23 points each while Ziaire Williams chipped in with 13 points, but no other player scored more than eight points. As a team, the Grizzlies shot a miserly 32 percent from the field and seven of 32 from the 3-point line as they got off to a quick start to take an early 11-point lead, only to get completely outplayed from the second quarter onwards as they just had no answer for the Rockets' starters who all finished in double figures in scoring.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Grizzlies rank 30th in the league for opponent blocks per game this season (7.1).
  • The Grizzlies rank 30th in the league for field goal percentage this season (42.2%).
  • The Suns rank 1st in the league for blocks per game this season (7.0).
  • The Suns rank 2nd in the league for three-point percentage this season (39.3%).

Peter's Pick

The Suns are still shorthanded with Yuta Watanabe, Drew Eubanks and Bradley Beal all out, while the Grizzlies are still missing a host of players including Brandon Clarke, Steven Adams, Marcus Smart and Xavier Tillman. Desmond Bane is also listsed as questionable for the Grizzlies in this one, so I'm sticking with the red-hot Suns to maintain their momentum and get the win and cover at the reasonable line.

Peter’s Pick Phoenix -7.5
