Interesting and important stat about the Grizzlies posted by John Schuhmann @NBA.com. “The Grizz rank first in clutch-time NetRtg and wins (they’re 26-13) in games that were within five points in the last five minutes.”

Marc Stein @ESPN highlights how important Marc Gasol is to the Grizzlies defense. He writes, “you have to continue to marvel at Marc Gasol’s impact. The Grizz went 10-13 without him and started 2014 ranked 25th in defensive efficiency. They’re now up to ninth.”

I am confused how Hollinger’s automatic computer rankings can have Minnesota ranked above the Grizzlies. According to this ranking, the Grizzlies have had a tougher SOS, and of course, have a better record.

Average ranking for the week is 9.18 little change from last week’s 9.73. (Actual not included in average.)
