Sacramento Kings @ Memphis Grizzlies Live Stream & Tips


In a battle between two teams with their eyes on the playoffs, the Sacramento Kings take on the Memphis Grizzlies in an NBA Western Conference regular season game on Saturday, May 15. These teams will played each other on Friday, with Memphis winning won 116-110. 

The Sacramento Kings are just outside the Western Conference playoff places in 11th, while Memphis are in ninth place, and have secured a play-in berth – basically a wildcard - to the playoffs.

Sacramento’s record is 31 wins against 39 defeats, and while they can’t catch Memphis, if they win their remaining two matches and results go their way, they could overtake 10th placed San Antonio. I’m backing the Sacramento Kings to be ironically too hungry for the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday, and to gain revenge for Friday’s defeat by winning impressively by at least ten points in a matchup that will feature more than 220 points. 

  • Kings 11th in Western Conference
  • Kings 31-39 this season 
  • Grizzlies 9th in Western Conference
  • Grizzlies 37-33 this season

Head to Head


The Memphis Grizzlies and the Sacramento Kings have played each other a total of 95 times, with the Kings currently leading their head-to-head by 52 wins to 43. Over the past three seasons these two teams have played each other ten times, with Sacramento leading 6-4. The Sacramento Kings and the Memphis Grizzlies have met twice this season with Memphis winning both, by 124-110 back in February, and by 116-110 on Friday May 14. 

Sacramento Kings Form


The Sacramento Kings are currently 11th in the Western Conference, with a record of 31-39, and with just two matches left to play, against the Grizzlies on Saturday and the Utah Jazz on Monday. Should they win both of those matches and the currently 10th placed San Antonio Spurs lose their two remaining fixtures – both vs the Phoenix Suns - the Kings will make the playoffs. 

Clearly, it’s a very tough ask, yet it could happen. After losing nine-straight matches in April, Sacramento have rebounded to hit their best form of the season in recent weeks, and are 6-2 in May. Meanwhile, while San Antonio have been in freefall this month, and are 2-8 in their last 10 matches. Unfortunately for Sacramento, they were narrowly defeated by Memphis on Friday 116-110, and must now try and avenge that loss to keep their playoffs dream alive. 

Memphis Grizzlies Form


The Memphis Grizzlies are 9th in the Western Conference, and regardless of how their two final games play out, they will contest the playoffs. The Grizzlies have won 37 games and lost 33 for a 0.529 win percentage. 

Memphis have suffered from the lack of a major points scorer this season, and Ja Morant leads their PPG stats with just 19.3 However Morant and Dillon Brooks stepped up big time to power the Grizzlies to five wins in their last six matches to ensure their place in the playoffs.

Verdict

The Sacramento Kings really needed to beat the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday. However, it wasn’t to be, and Memphis won by 6 points, 116-110. Luckily for the Kings, the team they are hoping to replace in the playoff places – 10th placed San Antonio Spurs – also lost.
 
I’m backing a fired up Sacramento team to overwhelm the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday. Knowing they must win their last two matches to have any chance of reaching the playoffs, the Kings will be “too hungry” for the Grizzlies, and win this game by at least ten points. This matchup will feature over 220 points in total.
