The Memphis Grizzlies travel to the American Airlines Center to battle the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night. Here's our Grizzlies v Mavericks prediction.

Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies have been in poor form all season, but they will be feeling a lot better after putting a halt to a four-game skid with a 105-91 win over the Jazz on Wednesday. During that four-game losing run, the Grizzlies lost to the Celtics, Rockets, Suns, and Timberwolves. In a win over Utah, Jaren Jackson Jr. led the team with 20 points and six blocks, David Roddy added 19 points on seven of 11 shooting, Desmond Bane scored 17 points with seven rebounds and nine assists while Derrick Rose chipped in with 14 points and nine assists. As a team, the Grizzlies shot 49 percent from the field and 13 of 39 from the 3-point line as they took control of the contest with a dominant 36-17 second-quarter push before they held off a late rally from the Jazz to earn their first home win of the season.

  • Jaren Jackson Jr. ranks 10th amongst qualified players for Blocks Per Game (1.8) this season.

Dallas Mavericks

Meanwhile, the Dallas Mavericks have been in decent shape as they've split their last eight games and they will be eager to build some momentum after sneaking past the Rockets in a 121-115 win on Tuesday. Luka Doncic led the team with 41 points and nine assists on 15 of 29 shooting, Kyrie Irving added 27 points and five assists while Derrick Jones Jr. chipped in with 15 points off the bench. As a team, the Mavericks shot 47 percent from the field and 12 of 34 from the 3-point line as they trailed by nine points late in the third quarter, before they poured in 37 points in the fourth quarter to put away the Rockets and improve to 5-2 at home this season.

Grizzlies v Mavericks Prediction

The Grizzlies are still missing a host of players including Brandon Clarke, Marcus Smart, Luke Kennard and Steven Adams, while the Mavericks are keeping an eye on Tim Hardaway Jr. who is questionable for this one. The Grizzlies will be breathing a sigh of relief after they were able to taken down the Jazz in their last outing, but it's hard to get too excited about beating the Jazz these days. The Mavericks come in as the team in better shape, they've won five of their seven home games and they've already blown out the Grizzlies by 125-110 back on Oct 30. Give me the Mavericks to take care of business in this spot.
