Just as the Grizzlies are improving in the real standings, it is reflected (of course) in the rankings. Nice to see Memphis ranked in the top 15.

I like the comment of Matt Moore @CBS Sports, “They’ve figured out some offense, the defense is starting to bow up, and Marc Gasol’s latest MRI was clear. Look out, Grizzlies are coming.”

Kurt Helin @ ProBasketballTalk says, “For you fans in Dallas, Denver, Phoenix, Minnesota and Memphis — teams with dreams of the Western Conference playoffs — know that the pace right now is 47-48 wins just to get the 8 seed. Plan accordingly.” That’s believable considering the competition in the West.

Considering that the Grizzlies Strength-of-Schedule is still rated as one of the hardest (Sagarin-3, Hollinger-1, RPI-1), standing at 18-19 with Marc being out for 23 games shows the Grizzlies are a good team, getting better.
