NBA Predictions: Why the Memphis Grizzlies Will Win the West in 2012-13

Sports Bettting at the Sportsbook

If Zach Randolph resumes his role as an elite power forward in the NBA, the Memphis Grizzlies will advance to the NBA Finals next spring. No other team in the Western Conference will have a sufficient answer for the Grizzlies’ elite play at both ends of the floor. 

Randolph was injured for the better part of the 2011-12 season, and in his return near the end, he was but a shell of his former self (11 PPG over 26 minutes of play). As a result, the young but experienced Grizzlies lost a heavily contested seven-game series against the resurgent Los Angeles Clippers in Round 1 of the 2011-12 playoffs. 

However, when healthy, Randolph is a 20-PPG, 10-RPG power forward who will complete the following Grizzlies lineup (Players statistics are provided by Basketball Reference.com.):

FZach Randolph (key bench player: Marreese Speights)

FRudy Gay

CMarc Gasol

GMike Conley Jr. (key bench player: Jerryd Bayless)

GTony Allen (key bench player: Josh Selby)

In the following segment, the Grizzlies’ championship-caliber strengths are analyzed. Matchups against the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Lakers are explored, as well.
