Cavs vs Grizzlies Preview

The Grizzlies went 38-34 last year, which was ninth in the Western Conference. Memphis averaged 113.3 points a game on offense, (15th in the NBA), and they surrendered 112.3 points a game on defense, which was 16th in the league. With budding young superstars in Ja Morant and big man Jaren Jackson Jr., the future is bright in Memphis.

“There’s growth in a lot of areas, and the chemistry within this team is showing a lot,” Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins said heading into his third season, per NBA.com. “Coming into Year 3, you’re wondering about retention areas from one year to the next. But I feel guys are accelerating a lot with some of the things we ended the season with last year. Our guys are more quickly getting to the things we need to as we get closer to opening night.”

The Cavs had a 16-26 mark in the Eastern Conference last year. They had a 9-27 record on the road, and they finished dead last in the NBA in scoring, netting 103.8 points a game. Needless to say, improvements are needed.

“To be honest, the Cavs haven’t been very successful the last couple years,” center Jarrett Allen said, per Hoops Wire. “We don’t know what it takes to be a high-level team. We haven’t really felt what it’s like to win. Our goal is to play meaningful games at the end of the season. We want to show people that the Cavs are back.”

Now, with a talented young roster that includes guards Collin Sexton and Darius Garland, center Evan Mobley and forward Lauri Markkanen, the Cavs have hope for the first time since LeBron left.

“Being young is good and bad. It’s good because you have all the energy, you’re hungry, but bad because you’re going to make a lot of mistakes,” Cavs guard Ricky Rubio added. “Do we learn from those mistakes quickly or not quickly enough? Are we sick of losing or are we just tired of losing? Two different things.”

Here’s a look at the predicted starting lineups for both teams heading into the game:

Cleveland Predicted Starting Lineup: G – Collin Sexton, G – Darius Garland, F – Kevin Love, F – Isaac Okoro, C – Jarrett Allen

Memphis Predicted Starting Lineup: G – Ja Morant, G – Desmond Bane, F – Kyle Anderson, F – Jaren Jackson Jr, C – Steven Adams
