Memphis Grizzlies Struggling NBA Spread +10.5 Against Mavericks

One year after making the Western Conference Championship, the Memphis Grizzles have had a troublesome start to the 2013 season. At 10-13, the Grizzles are third from the bottom in the West, only leading the Kings and the Jazz, both of which have single digits in the win column. On Tuesday night, the Grizz played the Lakers. And despite both teams being close to one another at the bottom of the West, it was the Lakers that pulled out the 96-92 road win.

Pau Gasol had 21 for the Lakers, while his brother Marc, remains injured for Memphis. Marc missing is a huge hole for the Grizzlers, and could be attributed for some of the struggles they’ve had this year. Last year, he was an All-Star and after Memphis traded away their best player in Rudy Gay last year, Gasol was expected to carry the load.

Memphis finds itself in the same conversation as a lot of other teams this year. They are teetering near the bottom of their own division and conference, but you can’t imagine blowing up a team that consists of Gasol, Mike Conley or Zach Randolph. However, with such excellent players expected to be in the NBA Draft next April, we might be seeing a lot of teams, the Grizzles included, tanking if things don’t turn around here soon.

Memphis is a prime example of what can happen in the NBA with mid-market teams. They don’t have much to bring in a huge star, but when they start blowing up their own team, the only hope to rebuild is through the draft. If the Grizzles don’t start turning around soon, they’ll quickly become a team you can expect to lose and lose often, as they hope to get a lottery pick this upcoming offseason.
