Sacramento Kings vs. Memphis Grizzlies Prediction
The Memphis Grizzlies currently stand in 6th place in the Eastern Conference. They have played a total of 4 games, out of which they have lost only 1 game.
On the other hand, the Sacramento Kings rank at number 14 in the Eastern Conference during the season. The team has played three matches so far and has not been able to score a win in any of these games.
At the same time, it is interesting to note that in all three matches, the Kings have managed to maintain a score margin under 10. In their game against the Golden State Warriors, the team scored 125 in response to the Warriors’ 130. In their second game against the Clippers, the team conceded 111 and finished the game with a margin of 2 points only.
On the other hand, the Memphis Grizzlies have been on a roll in the season. The team beat the Brooklyn Nets 134-124. Their only loss to the Dallas Mavericks ended with the Grizzlies scoring 96 in response to the Maverick’s 137. It was the Mavericks’ only win in the season, whereby their current score is 1-2. So, the Grizzlies losing to the underdog was a surprise turn of events.
Unless the Sacramento Kings give what could be one of the season’s biggest surprises, past stats indicate the Memphis Grizzlies to be the potential winners of the Thursday game.
