Looking for a breakdown of tonight’s matchup? This game preview has you covered!

Both teams enter the evening with some momentum, as the Wolves are coming off a 24-point beatdown of the Philadelphia 76ers, while the Grizzlies are riding a three game winning streak (including road wins at Utah and at the Clippers). This will be the third meeting between the Wolves and Grizzlies, who currently split the season series at 1-1 (while the Wolves lead the all-time regular season series 46-36).

As its been the last week or so, it’s looking like another game-time decision tonight for both Shabazz Muhammad and Brandon Rush.

On the Grizzlies side, Tony Allen (groin) and James Ennis (toe) are both PROBABLE, Mike Conley (achilles) and Chandler Parsons (knee) are both QUESTIONABLE, and Brandon Wright (ankle) is OUT. Wright recently underwent surgery on his right ankle and is expected to be sidelined for two months.

The game thread is open and ready for business. Let’s go Wolves!
