Even without Mike Conley on the court, the Memphis Grizzlies shouldn't be dropping games at this level. We're talking about a team that's being outscored by 10 points in their last five games and shooting just under 44 percent from the field. However, the Brooklyn Nets still don't play a lick of defense and continue to play with a backup backcourt. At home, the Grizzlies defense and grit should get the job done here, producing a painless victory to end the streak.
