Last season, the Memphis Grizzlies were red hot. They were on quite a roll in the Western Conference and actually contended with the Warriors in the NBA Playoffs. The Nashville Predators were the kings on the ice. They were actually referred to as the Seattle Seahawks of the NHL based off their style of play and hyper fans.
This season, it’s a whole different story. The Grizzlies are hanging around the bottom of the Western Conference, and the Predators are pretty inconsistent. It used to be rare to see Nashville lose on a Saturday at home. This season, its pretty common.
What’s wrong? Well, the Grizzlies lack of three point shooting is their main issue. They are committed to the “Grit N’ Grind” style, but that’s the reason why they can’t keep up with the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers. Not to mention, Memphis’s worst quarters are the third, which has set up some crazy fourth quarters.
The Predators’ problem could be injuries. They’ve been without some of their main scorers and have relied on younger guys to fill their shoes. I think it’s safe to say the Predators will be back to their norm later in the season.
Meanwhile, the Tennessee Titans are one of the NFL’s worst going up against one of the NFL’s best, the New England Patriots. Last time the Titans met the Patriots in New England, they got blown out 59-0. The Patriots own the AFC South, holding an 11-0 record vs the division since 2011.
Maybe the Jets was giving a taste of what the Patriots have to offer? Or, maybe there’s an upset in the Patriots future?
