Who’s Playing

Memphis @ Washington

Current Records: Memphis 5-3; Washington 5-3

What to Know

The Washington Wizards haven’t won a game against the Memphis Grizzlies since March 16 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Friday. Washington will look to defend their home court against Memphis at 7 p.m. ET. The contest is expected to be a close one, with the Wizards going off at just a 1-point favorite.

Washington entered their matchup against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday without any home losses — but there’s a first time for everything. Washington fell to Toronto 109-100. One thing holding Washington back was the mediocre play of shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who did not have his best game: he finished with only eight points on 4-for-13 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, the Grizzlies came out on top in a nail-biter against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday, sneaking past 108-106. The top scorer for Memphis was power forward Jaren Jackson Jr. (22 points).

Washington ended up a good deal behind Memphis when they played when the two teams previously met in March, losing 127-112. Maybe Washington will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the contest and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
