They have lost a staggering 18 games in a row, which there is basically no excuse for.
The Memphis Grizzlies have already clinched a playoff berth and have a solid 37-25 record on the season. Memphis is a very strong defensive team as evident by the fact that they only let up 93.4 points per game on the season.
