The Memphis Grizzlies may scare potential playoff opponents as they are one of the hottest teams in the league right now.

Now, some particular aspects to their game will have each team on their toes.

The Grizzlies have a few areas in which they are especially strong. Each one would pierce a different opponent. Memphis mauls teams with its defense, but both its perimeter and interior stoppers affect one team differently from another.

Also, the Grizzlies don't waste their opportunities at the free-throw line, whereas one possible first-round foe throws away a ton of points at the charity stripe.

Each advantage that the Grizzlies hold over their Western Conference opponents could come into play.

Follow along to see which would have the most significant impact on each potential foe.
