As Matt Dollinger @SI writes, “January’s best team, the Grizzlies (12-3), are 2-3 this month.” As Marc Stein @ESPN points out, the slide adds weight to Mike Conley’s all-star status and highlights the snub.

The losses to OKC, Dallas and Cleveland drop the Grizzlies down several spots. Even more it hurts their playoff chase. But the Grizzlies are only 1 game down in the loss column to Dallas and 2 down to Golden State and Phoenix. It’s the number of losses (not the number of wins) that matters most at this point as the teams have not played the same number of games. The Grizzlies are dependent on the other teams losing, unless of course, the Grizzlies are playing them.

I don’t understand how Hollinger’s rankings can have Minnesota Wolves ranked at 10th with a 24-28 record.

For those interested Memphis’s strength-of-schedule ranks: 3rd by Sagarin, Hollinger and the RPI at ESPN.


Average ranking for the week is 11.18, down from last week’s 7.73. (Actual not included in average.)
