Coming into this game, the Grizzlies are hoping to finally end their two-game losing streak, as more loss would drop them more in the standings. They recently suffered defeat against the Thunder, and Nuggets on their last meeting. During their match against the Nuggets, they played well in the paint, but their first quarter performance hurt them. This is surprising though as they failed to score more than 100 points against the Nuggets. The Nuggets is one of the worst teams in defense, so their performance is really a surprise. They only had five successful three-point shots from their 26 attempts. They are the 8th in offense, averaging 115.4 points per game, and 9th in defense, surrendering 111.2 points per game.

Ja Morant leads the Grizzlies with 27 points per game, while Desmond Bane is chipping in 24.7 points per game. However, injuries continue to hurt them, as some of their key players remain out in this game.

The Suns are from a surprising loss against the Wizards, snapping their three-game winning streak. Inconsistency have been their problem in their match, erasing a 17-point deficit, and blowing a 10-point lead in the 4th. The several exchange of leads on that match speaks about how inconsistent both teams are on that match, which leads to the loss of the Suns. Their defense in the 4th Quarter broke down, the main reason why they lost on their previous match. They are 6th in offense, having 115.7 points per game, and 7th in defense, surrendering 110.7 points per game.

Devin Booker continues to lead for the Suns with 28 points per game, but Deandre Ayton is also contributing well for the Suns with 17.6 points per game.
