MEMPHIS SCOUTING REPORT
The Memphis Grizzlies enter Thursday’s game on the back end of a back-to-back after falling to the Blazers in Portland on Wednesday. Memphis started the season with two straight wins but has since lost their last two, and Wednesday's game marked the first time this season that Ja Morant did not lead the team in scoring. The third-year NBA guard has blossomed into an all-around talent, leading the NBA in scoring (30.5 points per game) and his team in assists (8.5 apg, 6th in NBA) through the first two weeks of the season. Memphis center Steven Adams is also making an impact on the team, averaging a double-double while shooting 54 percent from the field.
