Grizzlies under pressure ahead of matchup with Celtics
If the sense of urgency for the Memphis Grizzlies to snap out of their funk weren't already at critical, it sure should be now.
As a result of their five losses in six games in the bubble, the Grizzlies (33-38) have ensured a play-in game will be necessary on Saturday to determine the eighth and final seed for the playoffs in the Western Conference. Their first of two games left to guarantee a spot in that contest takes place Tuesday evening as they face off against the Boston Celtics near Orlando.
As part of the NBA season restart plan, the play-in game was added in the event a ninth-seeded team in a conference finishes within four games of the eighth seed, which is now guaranteed to happen in the West. The Portland Trail Blazers (33-39) are a half-game back of the Grizzlies for the eighth seed, with the Phoenix Suns (32-39) and the San Antonio Spurs (31-38) both one game off the pace.MORE
