Memphis have lost three games in a row and will now face Houston on their home court. The Texans are off to a poor start to the new season, as they did last season, so Memphis might have a good chance to break their losing streak.Get Your Sign-Up Bonus!
Memphis have a losing streak
The Grizzlies are not the kind of team that should go through the season without a loss. These teams are rarely lucky enough to make it to the NBA and the NHL. The greater good news for Golden State Warriors is the renewal of their season ticket for at least another year in one of the best basketball formats in history.
Memphis defeated the Warriors in San Francisco in overtime, becoming one of only two teams to defeat the Warriors in a single game. The Bears are 6-7 overall. On the eve of the meeting with Houston, Taylor Jenkins’ team had two unsuccessful games at home, losing to Charlotte (108:118) and Phoenix (94:119). Away, they also underperformed not the strongest New Orleans (101:112). However, the Louisiana game was the second part of a back-to-back blowout after an exhausting game against Phoenix.
Houston didn’t add to anything
Stephen Silas’ team played so poorly last season that, at times, it nearly brought the young coach to tears. Then the coach was comforted and supported by John Wall. Now Wall has, how shall we say, disappeared. Who will console Silas now?
Well, sooner or later, he’ll have to. Houston are not doing any better than they did last season. Every three Rockets have decent games, losing by a few points, but mostly losing by more than 10. In total, Houston have only one win in 13 games. The Texans are uncontested in last place in the West.
