What you need to know about the Grizzlies
The Grizzlies won 92-75 when these teams met on Friday. Dillon Brooks led all scorers in the low-scoring game with 20 points, while Jonas Valanciunas had 14 points and 15 rebounds in the victory.
Valanciunas now has 42 double-doubles in 53 starts this season and he’ll need to come through with another strong performance against a talented young frontcourt that includes Wendell Carter Jr. and Mo Bamba.
Ja Morant only managed eight points on 3-of-12 shooting in the win and he’ll need to have a much more efficient night if the Grizzlies are going to improve upon a poor shooting night on Friday (34.3 percent from the floor).
What you need to know about the Magic
Shooting guard Dwayne Bacon had a tough game on Friday, playing for 32 minutes but putting up just five points on 2-for-12 shooting. However, Bamba did deliver a strong performance off the bench with 15 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots.
Unfortunately the Magic shot an abysmal 31.4 percent from the floor and 23.1 percent from the 3-point line as a team on Friday night. They’ve now scored more than 105 points just once in their last six games.
