MEM vs LAC Dream11: These two teams here have engaged in an intense tussle since the eruption of talent in the 00s. Here, the Los Angeles Clippers tackle the Memphis Grizzlies in an inter-conference battle. Clippers have won eight out of their nine games, the Grizzlies have lost half of their 14 games, still finding their feet.
Clippers are an experienced team, led by Paul George, who is supported by Jackson and Bledsoe in the backcourt, Batum, and Zubac in the frontcourt. Off the bench, Kennard, Hartenstein, and Mann have been huge. On the other hand, the Grizzlies are relatively young. While Ja leads them in multiple categories, Steven Adams gives them size and hustle in the middle. Jaren Jackson has been huge at big-Forward while returnee Brooks has been shooting well. The rest of the unit is still unclear in terms of the roles, and we can see some shuffling if the team doesn’t get on a roll.

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Grizzlies: Not consistent yet due to poor defense
Grizzlies is among the top ten teams in terms of points per game, accumulating around 110 points per game. However, it is the defense where the team struggles, Memphis is bottom-five in points allowed per game and leaves the floodgates open for around 114 PPG. Before the win against the league’s worst Rockets, the team had given 112 or more points in five games.
Clippers: The experience has helped them defend well
The Clippers despite their age, have the seventh-best place in the league. The team is 13th in Points per game with around 108 and the perimeter defense of Jackson, Bledsoe, Batum, and George, backed by Zubac in the middle gives them a superb combination. The team is fifth-best in limiting points and opponents score around 102 PPG against them while their defensive rating of 101.1 is the second-best in the league. It is clear how the Clippers have been winning a bunch of games recently
