Julius Randle and the New York Knicks (28-38) will take on Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies (45-22) in part of the Friday NBA slate.

Coming off an impressive blowout win over the Dallas Mavericks on the road, the Knicks will look to continue the momentum they’ve recently established over their last two games.

Avoiding letdown performances against losing teams is a priority for the Grizzlies as they seek to maximize their outlook to finish with the second seed in the Western Conference.

Neither team is all that equipped to handle the opposition’s top scoring options from an individual matchup standpoint. It will be interesting to see what the unit approach ends up being.
