Although they’re losers of five straight, the Grizzlies still hold the No. 2 seed in the NBA’s competitive Western Conference with an impressive record of 31-18. They have a three game lead on the Sacramento Kings and a five game cushion on the New Orleans Pelicans, who themselves have lost seven straight.

The Pacers have been awful lately as well, winning just one of their last 10 games to fall to ninth place in the East. The 24-27 Pacers are fighting for their playoff lives, and will be missing Tyrese Haliburton, Kendall Brown and Daniel Theis for the game.

The Grizzlies will also be down Steven Adams with a knee sprain, and John Konchar, who remains in the league’s concussion protocol. Danny Green is also out for the contest as he continues to recover from left knee surgery, while Kennedy Chandler will be available for the Grizzlies.
