Eastern and Western Conference teams jockeying for NBA playoff positioning will meet Sunday night when the Indiana Pacers visit the Memphis Grizzlies.
Despite dropping a 133-129 overtime decision Friday at New York, the Grizzlies head into the weekend two games up on San Antonio for the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference. Sunday's matchup is the first in a three-game homestand before Memphis embarks on a season-long, seven-game trip beginning April 16.
The Grizzlies are coming off another road swing of four games, wherein they won the first three. Memphis had taken five of its past six games before Friday's setback, but the intense atmosphere of the loss to the Knicks still has value for the Grizzlies, per guard Kyle Anderson.
