Through 3 Quarters

Both the Memphis Grizzlies and the Toronto Raptors have kept the scorekeepers busy with 183 between them three quarters in. a victory is still up for grabs for either team, but Memphis is up 92-91

Point guard Ja Morant has led the way so far for the Grizzlies, as he has 18 points and nine assists along with four boards. One thing to keep an eye out for is Jaren Jackson Jr.'s foul situation as he currently sits at four.

Toronto has been led by center Precious Achiuwa, who so far has 17 points. Achiuwa has also picked up four fouls, though.

Toronto hasn't lost 88% of the games in which they were down heading into the final period this year, so a win here would be refreshing.

Toronto @ Memphis

Current Records: Toronto 8-10; Memphis 9-8

What to Know

The Memphis Grizzlies will be returning home after a two-game road trip. They will take on the Toronto Raptors at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday at FedExForum. Coming off of a win even when the odds were against them, Memphis has to be feeling especially confident now that the spread is in their favor.

The Grizz can't say they have nothing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving week. They escaped with a win on Monday against the Utah Jazz by the margin of a single free throw, 119-118. The Grizzlies' success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but power forward Jaren Jackson Jr. led the charge as he had 26 points along with eight boards.

Meanwhile, the matchup between Toronto and the Golden State Warriors on Sunday was not particularly close, with the Raptors falling 119-104. One thing holding Toronto back was the mediocre play of shooting guard Gary Trent Jr., who did not have his best game: he played for 28 minutes with 3-for-16 shooting.

Memphis' victory brought them up to 9-8 while Toronto's defeat pulled them down to 8-10. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Grizzlies come into the game boasting the second most steals per game in the league at 9.82. But the Raptors rank second in the league when it comes to steals given up per game, with only 6.6 on average. Ball control might end up being a major factor in this one.
