The Memphis Grizzlies will try to add another win to their 9-3 road record on Sunday when they take on the Cleveland Cavaliers. During the 2013-14 season, the Grizzlies and the Cavs split their two-game regular season series.
The Grizzlies had their six-game winning streak snapped on Friday night when the Chicago Bulls were able to defeat them 103-97 in Memphis. They only had four turnovers in that game, but they also only made 39.4 percent of their shots.
So far this season, the Grizzlies are one of the only teams in the league that is in the top 10 in both scoring and points allowed. Center Marc Gasol has had a great start to the season by averaging 19.6 points and 7.9 rebounds per game.
On Friday night, the Cavaliers used a big second quarter to come back and defeat the Brooklyn Nets 95-91 at home. They didn't shoot well in that game, but their defense was able to force 16 Brooklyn turnovers.
The Cavs have been able to score over 102 points per game this season, but they are also giving up about 100 points per game to their opponents.
