With the Spurs and Thunder pretty much a lock for the top two seeds in the West, the scramble is on for No. 3 spot in the West. Why would the Clippers and Lakers scramble for a spot with no tangible advantages? Memphis has 'em shook, son! The Grizzlies have won 10 of their last 13 games and they haven't lost at home in over a month. They're as healthy, deep, and complete a team as any in the NBA's second tier and they've proven themselves a threat in the playoffs. Look for Memphis to be the sleeper team this postseason. —Sean Evans
