What you need to know about the Grizzlies
The Grizzlies came up short against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, 109-101. Small forward Dillon Brooks had one of his more forgettable games, with just a 4-for-14 shooting performance and five turnovers in 33 minutes. Ja Morant continued his strong play since missing a game on November 20 (ankle) and scored 24 points to go with six assists, five rebounds and two steals.
One area where Memphis has excelled this season has been on the offensive glass, and the Grizzlies average 14 offensive boards per game, which is first in the NBA. The Grizz are strong on the defensive end as well, and are fourth in the league in defensive rebounds, with 34.7 per contest. Center Steven Adams has been dominant under the basket and has averaged 11.8 rebounds per game over his last five starts. Desmond Bane (toe) is out for Memphis
What you need to know about the 76ers
The 76ers blew a seemingly great opportunity to pick up a win against a strong Eastern Conference opponent on Wednesday when they lost 113-85 to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Even though Cleveland was without center Jarrett Allen (back) and Kevin Love (thumb), 76ers center Joel Embiid finished with his second-lowest scoring output of the season, with just 19 points on a 6-for-16 night from the floor. Forward Tobias Harris came into the matchup averaging 24 points over his previous three games and finished with just three points in the losing effort.
Harris is a game-time decision (illness) on Friday, which might explain his poor performance on Wednesday. Without him, Philly will have to rely on its defense, particularly on the perimeter, where it has held opponents to just 32.5% from downtown this season (first in NBA). If Harris can't go, Danuel House Jr. could get the start, and he has made 62.5% of his attempts from the field in 18.6 minutes per game over his last four appearances. James Harden and Tyrese Maxey remain out for Philly with foot injuries.
