The Washington Wizards have lost eight of their last 10 games, and are currently riding a three-game losing streak, as they head to Memphis for a clash with the Grizzlies.
Memphis is looking to continue their recent momentum, as they've won two in a row. Previously, they had been colder than the Wizards, dropping nine of 10.
The matchup in the backcourt will be fascinating to watch, as potential Rookie of the Year Ja Morant squares off with Bradley Beal, who is playing the best basketball of his career.

WIZARDS vs. GRIZZLIES PLAYERS TO WATCH
Bradley Beal, G, Wizards (27.4 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 7.0 apg): Beal has enjoyed a sensational start to his season, averaging nearly twice as many points as any other player on the Wizards. As he goes, the team goes.
Davis Bertans, SF, Wizards (15.7 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 1.6 apg): Bertans has been one of the most successful acquisitions of the NBA offseason. The sharpshooter is averaging a whopping four made 3-pt field goals per game and has added a scoring punch alongside Beal.
Ja Morant, PG, Grizzlies (18.7 ppg, 6.4 apg, 1.3 spg): Morant leads the Grizzlies in points, assists and steals this season. The explosive rookie has shined when healthy, and with Zion Williamson out looks like the top player in the 2019 draft class.
