In the playoff race the club is sitting in the fifth seed in the Eastern conference and holds a 8 game lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers for the final playoff spot with just 23 games remaining on their schedule. Memphis has not been as dominating a team as last year. The head coaching change did not really work. They wanted to run more and with the due of Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol that style change did not work. They were playing the right system all along and a coaching change was not needed. The Grizzlies have resorted back to their style utilized with their former head coach. A check of the standings and we find the Memphis Grizzlies sitting in the ninth seed and 1 ½ games behind the Dallas Mavericks for the final seed in the Western conference. Washington has been on fire as the club has won six straight games. John Wall the talented point guard for the Wizards struggled early in his career with his team as there was no talent around him. The Wizards have built a good roster to support Wall in Bradley Beal, Trevor Ariza, Marcin Gortat and the talented center Nene. Gortat shoots 54% from the floor around the bucket and with Gortat and Nene the Wizards match up with the Grizzlies big men in Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph. Take the Wizards at home getting points.
