Why Bet On Memphis?
Memphis is playing well right now, having won three straight and four of five including their 114-104 win over Orlando on Sunday while beating Portland and Dallas along the way.
“It’s progress,” coach J.B. Bickerstaff told reporters. “I think we knew it was going to take a little bit of time for the guys to gel and figure each other out. … You can see it on the floor with the way they play together. The way they are in the locker room with one another. All they care about is team success, and they’re enjoying it right now.”
The Grizzles are playing a bunch of young players right now, but veteran point guard Mike Conley has been phenomenal in averaging 31.3 points over the last three games.
“Really, it’s my coaches and teammates,” Conley told reporters. “They’ve really set the table and believed in me. They’re getting me open and constantly pushing me and telling me to be more aggressive. They think I’m too unselfish. I think we’re a good mix of guys and character right now.”
