More attention has been in the Alamo City than they've had all season, as they're now projected to keep the Los Angeles Lakers out of the NBA Play-In Tournament picture over the final two weeks. The recent four-game winning streak has been the main reason they have a chance, but the Grizzlies will be a real threat to stop that in its tracks.
The Spurs survived a surge by the Houston Rockets to prevail 123-120 on Monday behind a career-high 33 points from Dejounte Murray.
Meanwhile, the Grizzlies improved to an unbelievable 18-2 record without Ja Morant, who will be missing this matchup as well. Their 123-95 win over Golden State was their fifth straight and ninth win in 10 games.
Overall, Memphis has won the last five meetings over San Antonio, scoring exactly 118 points in all three of their wins over them this season.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Grizzlies Prediction
Obviously, this game will be much different from the last meeting, in which Ja Morant scored a career-high 52 points and had a full highlight package all in one game. But even without Morant, the Grizzlies are still one of the deadliest teams in the league.
Opponent Role Player to Watch: There are just so many weapons at the disposal of the Grizzlies. Since I focused on Desmond Bane last time, I'll go with Dillon Brooks here, who's had some big games against the Spurs and missed all three of the previous meetings. I have a feeling we'll see some jawing between him and Dejounte Murray in this one, as neither of them likes to back down.
I'm not sure San Antonio will come out of this one with a win, but I have to pick them for one main reason: I previously predicted the Spurs will finally have a five-game winning streak near the end of the season, so I can't back out of that now.
Spurs 114, Grizzlies 110
