HOU Vs MEM Dream11 Prediction : HOU Vs MEM Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: On a downward spiral, Memphis Grizzles clutching at straws in a bid to retain their spot in the top 8.
With three defeats in a row, Memphis Grizzlies sit perilously on the cusp of being shunted out of the top 8 of the Western Conference. They are clutching at straws at the moment to sit in 8th spot, a position which is persistently in Portland’s sights who are eyeing displacing Memphis from the spot.
At a time of such peril, Houston Rockets is the last outfit Memphis Grizzlies would have wanted to visit. They are taking on the Western Conference’s fifth placed outfit, a side which has a 20-8 record infront of its own raucous supporters along with a 75% win rate in the final stretch of the showpiece league.
And they have justified that record as well with four wins in succession at the moment to canter their way towards the annuls of the points tally. They have flourished over the last two weeks with their exemplary brand of basketball paid a testament to the last time around as they pummelled and battered New York Knicks 123-112.
This should be an extremely easy game for the Rockets to win. They are coming across a dwindling Memphis unit, a side which has failed to address its contentious issues in defence, a harsh aberration which will lead to their demise on the day.

Dream 11 Picks
HOU Vs MEM Dream11 Point Guard
With the 7.9 rpg, Russell Westbrook has acted as the perfect point guard for Houston Rockets this season.

From Houston Rockets meanwhile we are going to be dwelling in the services of the guile filled Robert Covington, someone who has sent down floating jump points with ease.
