The Memphis Grizzlies find themselves in terrific position heading into the next-to-last month of the regular season. Taking advantage of their opponent's slippage coming off a hard loss against the New Jersey Nets, the Grizzlies routed the Dallas Mavericks 95-85. That brought the Grizzlies (20-15) within half a game of Dallas and the Houston Rockets for fifth in the Western Conference.
The Grizzlies had an ideal setup for the month of February, and they did pretty well with what they were given. With only five road games out of 14, the Grizzlies went 9-5 on the month to climb up the standings in the West. While the Grizzlies didn't improve their road play too much, they made the most of their home-court dominance.
Follow along for a few key observations to take away from the February slate that just finished.
