The Memphis Grizzlies are in the midst of a tight battle in the Western Conference for a playoff spot, and currently hold a narrow lead on the eighth and final seed. They are on pace for a first-round match up with the San Antonio Spurs.

Memphis is attempting to reach the postseason for the first time in the last five seasons, and will try to make a splash in the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.

While they made three consecutive trips to the playoffs starting in 2003-04, they managed to get swept on all three occasions, going 0-12 overall.

However, this season, Memphis has shown that they can hang with anyone in the league and that they could be a potential first-round threat for some of the Western Conference's elite teams.

This slideshow will rate the Grizzlies' odds of winning a playoff series against every team currently competing to make a trip to the postseason in the West.
