Grizzlies vs. 76ers

Tonight the Memphis Grizzlies are traveling to Philadelphia to play the 76ers.  The 76ers haven't been too good after losing Andre Iguodala to the Denver Nuggets, but are still only two games out of the eighth spot in the East, behind the Boston Celtics, who lost Rajon Rondo.  This opens the door a little bit more for the 76ers because without Rondo, the Celtics lose their star player leading the NBA in assists.  Jrue Holiday is averaging 19.4 points and 8.9 assists per game.  Thaddeus Young is averaging 14.8 points and 7.3 boards.  Finally, Evan Turner is averaging 14.2 points and 6.7 rebounds.

On the other side, the Grizzlies are having another great season.  Rudy Gay is averaging 17.5 points and 5.8 rebounds.  Zach Randolph is averaging 16.2 points and 11.6 boards per a game.   Marc Gasol is averaging 13.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game.  If the Grizzlies keep this up, I think they will surely make the playoffs, no matter how good the other teams in the Western Conference play.  The teams in the Western Conference should look out, because the Los Angeles Lakers are creeping up, and look like they actually might make the playoffs.
