SACRAMENTO, Calif. — In a year of being hot and cold, the Memphis Grizzlies are particularly chilly lately.
Next comes a test against a team that just enjoyed one of its hottest spurts in memory, one Memphis wouldn’t mind finding in a dream.
The Grizzlies (40-33) lug a three-game losing streak with them to Sacramento for a Monday night game against the Kings (28-45). The skid comes after a four-game winning streak that had Memphis players thinking they rediscovered the right formula after a five-game losing streak that preceded it.
The ups and downs — the Grizzlies also have had two six-game winning streaks and an earlier three-game losing streak — have left Memphis in seventh place in the Western Conference, five games ahead of both the Denver Nuggets (35-38) and the Portland Trail Blazers (35-38) in the race for the final two playoff spots.
The Grizzlies are still uncertain whether they will face the Kings with center Marc Gasol, who is questionable due to a left foot strain.
Memphis, who trail the sixth-place Oklahoma City Thunder (41-31) by 1 1/2 games, missed an opportunity without Gasol to gain ground because of an rough fourth quarter in a 106-94 loss at the Golden State Warriors on Sunday.
The Grizzlies are the NBA’s 27th-ranked team in scoring at 101.0 points per game and they also shoot a league-worst 43.4 percent from the field. Memphis missed 15 of its first 17 shots on their way to 5-of-25 shooting in the fourth quarter against Golden State.
Memphis hasn’t shot better than 45 percent from the field in any of its past six games.
Generally, the Grizzlies make up for it at the other end. Opponents score 100.3 points against Memphis per game, the fourth-best mark in the league.
But a 10-2 Warriors spurt prevented the Grizzlies from becoming the first team since the 2013-14 San Antonio Spurs to beat Golden State three teams in a season.
Grizzlies Need This win a lot more than the Kings and I see the Grizzlies getting back on track tonight plus Kings are trash without Cousins.
