Grizzled Vet posted a topic in Grizzlies Team TalkLast year's overly optimistic, highly unlikely playoff thread was started in December, after 34 games with 48 to go. Not surprisingly, nobody at the beginning of last year's playoff thread correctly predicted that there would be a global pandemic, all sporting events would be paused, the team would join 21 other teams in a bubble in Orlando, a new playoff format would be accepted, and the Grizzlies would miss out from being an official playoff team. As of today, with 50 games potentially remaining, the 11-11 Grizzlies sit in 9th, halfway between 7th (Denver Nuggets) and 14th with only the Timberwolves likely out of playoff contention. So 1-3 appear locks for the playoffs (Jazz, Lakers, Clippers). The important 4-6 positions are Suns, Portland, Spurs. 7-10 play-in teams: Nuggets, Warriors, Grizzlies, Mavericks 11-14 still fighting: Kings, Rockets, Pelicans, and Thunder. If you are counting, that is 5 teams above them in striking distance, and 5 teams below them that see the Grizzlies as within easy striking distance. So do the Grizzlies finish in the Play-in tournament? Outside looking in the lottery?
