Sixers vs Grizzlies Scrimmage Team News
The viewers can expect to see their stars take the court for some minutes during the match.
Ja Morant will be itching to get onto the court in the Bubble, hoping to lead the Grizzlies to a much famed playoff spot. With the ‘rookie of the year’ up for grabs, the young NBA star has a lot at stake in his 1st season in the NBA.
The Sixers have a lot to play for as well. Ben Simmons has been in the news for a position change and Joel Embiid and co. will be hoping that it brings about a positive change in the team setup.
76ers available roster: Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Alec Burks, Tobias Harris, Al Horford, Josh Richardson, Korkmaz, Shake Milton, Raul Neto, O’Quinn, Norvel Pelle, Glenn Robinson, Mike Scott, Marial Shayok, Thybulle
Grizzlies available roster: Ja Morant, Grayson Allen, Kyle Anderson, Dillon Brooks, Brandon Clarke, Dieng, Guduric, Josh Jackson, Jaren Jackson Jr, Tyus Jones, John Konchar, De’Anthony Melton, Anthony Tolliver, Valanciunas, Yuta Watanabe.
What to expect from both the teams heading into the restart?
Both the teams have a lot to gain going into the restart. While the Sixers will look to deliver upon their immense potential, Grizzlies will have to fight tooth and nail to retain their position in the western conference standings.
The 76ers will hope that their all-star duo will finally click on the front-court. But, Simmons’ foray into the front-court will confine veteran Al Horford to the bench.
The Grizzlies have had a surprisingly brilliant season so far and remain 3.5 games ahead of big-name teams like Blazers, Kings and Pelicans.
Although stars were expected to be rusty heading into the scrimmage, we have been happily proven wrong so far. We hope that this trend continues today.
