The Memphis Grizzlies occupy the tenth position in the Western Conference table with nine wins from nineteen games played. So far, they have scored 2085 and received 2211 points, which tells us that they play matches with 226 points on average. Memphis is the ninth-best in league with an average of 109.7 points per game, while with 116.4 points received per game, they are convincingly last on the list of the best defensive teams. They have been playing in a somewhat changeable rhythm lately, and in the last five games, they have managed to achieve two wins and three defeats.
They played very well against the Los Angeles Clippers at home and managed to win 120:108, and in the next match, they were defeated by Minnesota with a difference of 43 points, more precisely with 138:95. The duel with the Utah Jazz team was extremely uncertain, but the Grizzlies players were still better with 119:118. They did not have enough strength to provide better resistance against the Toronto Raptors, who were better with 126:113, and in the last match, they were convincingly defeated at home by Atlanta with the result of 132:100. Memphis is playing very fast this season, and that is why the game in defense is not at a satisfactory level. Of course, they cannot be satisfied with the fact that they have received 138,118,126 and 132 points in the last four matches, and for a slightly more serious result, they will have to lower these numbers to a more decent level.

Sacramento has eight wins and twelve defeats so far, and they welcome this match at the eleventh place in the Western Conference table. They are one of the most efficient teams in the league, which is best seen because in twenty matches played, they scored 2214 and received 2248 points, or a little more than 223 points per match. With an average of 110.7 points scored per match, Sacramento is in tenth place on the list of the league’s best offensive teams, while on the other hand, they are only in 27th place in terms of defense, with 112.4 points received per match. They managed to improve their form a bit, and they have two wins, and three defeats in the last five matches played.
They played four games in a row at home, and in the first, Toronto was better with 108:89. They played much more efficiently against the Utah Jazz team, but they also suffered a 123: 105 defeat in that match. The negative series continued against Philadelphia, which won 102: 94, only to end a series of defeats with a 125: 121 victory against the Portland Trail Blazers. In the last match, they managed to make a big surprise and defeated the Los Angeles Lakers away with 141: 137, after three overtimes. It seems that Sacramento is slowly catching the desired form, and teams that play a little faster basketball suit them better, just like tonight’s opponent.

Memphis Grizzlies vs Sacramento Kings Prediction
Tonight, two teams meet that play at a very fast pace, but at this moment it suits the guests better, considering that Memphis is the weakest defensive team in the league. In the last four matches, they received as many as 514 points, or 128.5 on average. Memphis’ best player, Ja Morant (25 points per game) injured his knee in the match against Atlanta, and that will be a very big handicap for the Grizzlies later in the season.
Sacramento started to play much better, and with two victories broke a series of four consecutive defeats. They scored 125 and 141 points against Portland and the Lakers, so they are in a good shooting rhythm, and we expect them to take full advantage of all the defensive flaws of the Memphis team. Considering that both teams play matches with a large number of possessions, we believe that they will play this match in the same way, so betting on the number of points is the safest option for us.
