The final push and grind begins. The Grizzlies have the most games left of the 8 teams in this composite with 10. The Grizzlies have the easiest SOS of these teams and play only 3 teams with at least a 500 record and two of those are the next two: Phoenix and San Antonio. After that the only team with the winning record is the last game against Orlando.
I think that we can overtake the Clippers, but remember that the Grizzlies have to have a better record than them because they won the series winning 2 or the 3 games. Overtaking the Lakers may be possible since they have the hardest remaining schedule other than Phoenix. Again because they won the series against the Griz, Memphis has to have a better record than them.
Go Grizzlies! Playoffs here we come for a second year in a row. (I know that it isn’t over until its over, but it seems it would be hard to fall out of the playoffs at this point unless half the team goes down with injuries.)
