After a rough 5 games in 6 nights and 4 of those away games including the 3×3 set, the Grizzlies are in 5th place.  The next back to back of Miami away and Dallas @ home will end the toughest part of the schedule.  After those games the Grizzlies remaining SOS will drop to 0.439 based on current records of teams left to play.  It will also mean that the final 11 games for Memphis will have 7 home and 4 away and 7 of those teams have a record of 500 or worse.

The Grizzlies should finish strong.  Dallas on the other hand has 7 away games of the 11 left and play 6 teams with a winning record and in the playoff push.  The Clippers, like Dallas, have a lot of away games left, 8 of 12, and play 6 teams above 500 plus Phoenix at 500 and making a playoff push.

Since the Grizzlies have lost only one game more than the Clippers and one less than the Mavericks, I think they can pass them both.  However, they will have to be one up on LAC since they have the tie-breaker with us.  I would say that the Lakers almost have lock on the 3rd spot since they have the tie breaker against Memphis, the Clippers and Dallas.

    We can beat Dallas, we should have beaten them the other night. but I do not know how we are going to handle Miami, we will see how that goes. i mean we beat OKC so i really am not THAT worried. Also The clips will prob get another jump on us, they are playing the Kings twice, while we play miami and Dallas. we NEED to beat Miami and Dallas

    So a likely playoff match against either the clips or Dallas. Neither is particularly exciting. I would like to play either the spurs or lakers. Love to see a series of Tony Allen humbling kobobe.
