16. Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies are one of the young, intriguing teams in the Western Conference. Though, it’s looking more and more like this team could end up falling out of the top 8 in the West (especially the way Golden State has been playing of late) ahead of the starts of the playoffs.

There’s a good chance that this team will still be in the play-in tournament but could be facing an uphill battle as they compete against Stephen Curry and the Warriors in a battle for that final playoff spot.

There is a lot of good in the Grizzlies and we saw that even last season, but you can’t help but wonder what it means that this team, for the past two seasons, has faded towards the end of the season.
