Extra Pass: West's best teams lock horns

Published April 1, 2022, 3:50 PMJC Ansis

The Phoenix Suns and the Memphis Grizzlies—the two best teams in the West—collide tomorrow on NBA TV Philippines (via Smart GigaPlay).

What's up with the Memphis Grizzlies?

Ja Morant is still on the shelf due to an injury but that hasn't stopped the Grizzlies from winning. In their last 10 games, Memphis has gone 9-1 even without their All-Star guard in some of those games.

The Grizzlies are riding high after topping the Southwest Division for the first time in franchise history. Since they are already assured of a playoff berth, the Grizzlies may sit some key players against the Suns.

For Memphis, getting a win over the best team in the West would send a statement to the entire league that it is for real.

What's up with the Phoenix Suns?

The Suns are back to being dominant after getting Chris Paul back from injury. They have the best record in the league and show no signs of stopping even as we near the end of the regular season.

Phoenix is also 9-1 in its last 10 games, putting up an average of 125.4 points as opposed to its opponents' 113.4. The Suns will have their main gunners available so you can expect this Memphis visit to be a quick one.

Where to watch

Filipino fans can catch the tussle between the Suns and Grizzlies tomorrow live at 8:00 AM on NBA TV Philippines, available on Smart GigaPlay and Cignal TV.
