Green averaged 20.7 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists with a 59.2 true shooting percentage in his last 32 games last season, while Porter averaged 18.2 points, 6.1 assists, 4.7 rebounds and just 2.5 turnovers per game while posting a 56.4 true shooting percentage over stretch. Jabari Smith had 17 points and seven rebounds in his NBA debut, and the No. 3 pick overall in the 2022 NBA draft already looks like a potential franchise cornerstone.

Why the grizzlies can cover

Memphis needed a win against the Knicks in overtime on Wednesday, and it was Ja Morant who led the win in 56 games. Morant had 34 points and nine assists in the triumph, after averaging 27.4 points, 6.7 assists and 5.4 rebounds per game last year.

The Grizzlies relied heavily on their defense in the opening night win, holding the Knicks on just 2 of 10 shots off the floor in overtime. Taylor Jenkins’ team ranked fourth in the NBA defensive rating last season (109.0) and it seems he has a unit that can grind in stops when needed this year as well.
