The Memphis Grizzlies have a strong frontcourt and stout defense, though their offensive efficiency needs to elevate for them to become a true title contender.

“I think an awful lot will look the same, there will be a tremendous emphasis on the defensive end,” Chris Wallace said. “If we can get the offense to rise up to the statistical rankings in the league, the way we have the defensive side of the ball, we’re going to be a hell of a team. That’s the final piece, an offense that is a top-10 offense. If you look at a team that has a chance to make a run at a title, you usually have a top-10 offense and top-10 defense.”

The Grizzlies were 21st in field goal percentage last season.
