The Memphis Grizzlies are in a stretch where they’re playing their fourth straight road games in five days, and look to go an even 2-2 when they face the Washington Wizards tonight.
The Grizzlies are trying to hold onto the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference playoff picture. The Portland Trail Blazers and Houston Rockets trail the Grizzlies by two games with fewer than 20 games remaining.
Memphis has 11 games remaining the month of March including tonight’s contest against the Wizards. The three dates to circle are March 21st, March 25th and March 27th.
First, the Grizzlies take on the Blazers, who are chasing them for the two seed. The Grizzlies can gain another game of separation between the teams with a win against a Blazers team that lost Wesley Matthews for the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL. Next, the Grizzlies face LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, which will be a good test before the postseason against one of Eastern Conference’s elite teams. Lastly, the Grindhouse hosts the best team in the NBA, the Golden State Warriors. It’s highly improbable the Grizzlies catch the Warriors for the No. 1 seed in the West, but that won’t make this game any less intense.
According to TiqIQ.com, the game against the Cavaliers has the highest average ticket price for Grizzlies tickets in the month of March. The price is $238.50 with a walk-in price of $39. The lowest average ticket price is for their game tonight against the Detroit Pistons, at $69.27 with a walk-in price of $3.
The Grizzlies are shaping up to face either the Dallas Mavericks or the San Antonio Spurs in the first round of the playoffs. Dallas is the more mouthwatering matchup, as no team wants to see the defending champions to start their playoff run.
