The Memphis Grizzlies and the Philadelphia 76ers duke it out at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night. Here’s a Grizzlies vs 76ers Prediction.

Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies have been doing it tough lately but they will be feeling much better after putting an end to a five-game slide with a 106-102 road win over the Nets on Monday. Luke Kennard led the team with 25 points and seven assists on eight of 11 shooting, Jake LaRavia led the team with 14 points, 10 rebounds and three assists off the bench while Santi Aldama chipped in with 12 points. As a team, the Grizzlies shot 46 percent from the field and 12 of 37 from the 3-point line as they found themselves deadlocked with the Nets in the fourth quarter, before they went on a pivotal 11-2 run to start to pull away. The Grizzlies will play against the Hawks after this game.

Philadelphia 76ers

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have been in decent form as they've split their last six games, but they will be hoping to bounce back here after falling short to the Nets in a 112-107 road loss last night. Kelly Oubre Jr led the team with 30 points, six rebounds and four assists, Tobias Harris added 18 points with nine rebounds and four assists, while Cameron Payne chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the 76ers shot 48 percent from the field and 12 of 28 from the 3-point line as they squandered an early 14-point lead, before they leaked 32 points in the fourth quarter to come up short in the end. The 76ers will meet the Pelicans, Knicks (back-to-back set), and Bucks after this one.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for steals per game this season (8.5).
  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for opponent steals per game this season (6.1).
  • The Grizzlies rank 30th in the league for points per game this season (106.1).
  • The Grizzlies rank 30th in the league for field goal percentage this season (43.8%).

Grizzlies vs 76ers Prediction

The Grizzlies are severely shorthanded with a host of players injured including Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr and Derrick Rose, while the 76ers are still without Joel Embiid and they have Cameron Payne listed as questionable. The Grizzlies were able to end an ugly five-game losing streak with a gritty win over the Nets last night, but I don't think they will be celebrating too long as I have the 76ers bouncing back from last night's loss with a win against this third string Grizzlies squad.
