On Friday evening, the Memphis Grizzlies are hosting the Sacramento Kings in Memphis. The Kings are already eliminated from the post-season, and their history of missing the playoffs just continues to keep growing by the season.
Over on the Grizzlies side, they will be in the NBA's play-in tournament, and as of Friday, they are the ninth seed in the Western Conference, which means they would host the San Antonio Spurs in the first game of the play-in tournament.
Friday's starting lineup for the Grizzlies (who are missing several key players) can be seen in a post embedded below from Fantasy Labs NBA.
The Grizzlies are currently 3.5 point favorites over the Kings on Friday, according to FanDuel.
