This offense is efficient, but their defense has been proven to hold its own as well. The Wolves are holding opponents to 79.7 points per game, the third-fewest among all teams in Vegas. They are definitely a force to be reckoned with.
The Grizzlies have been led by no. 21 overall pick and Summer League MVP Brandon Clarke, who is averaging 14.6 points and 8.6 rebounds per game and is coming off of a 23-point, 14-rebound performance against the Pelicans.
Memphis has shown just as much productivity on offense, as the Timberwolves have six guys, including Clarke, averaging double figures in scoring. And they have shown the ability to compete on defense, holding teams to an average of 84.3 points.
This matchup will definitely come down to the wire and make for a great ending in Las Vegas.
