Dallas Mavericks vs. Memphis Grizzlies History

For much of their shared history the Mavs have dominated the Grizzlies, winning 73 of their 108 total regular season games. Add to this the fact that the Mavericks swept the Grizzlies in their only playoff series in 2006, and the question arises: What rivalry?

Enter Ja Morant and Luka Doncic.

All-star point guards Luka Doncic and Ja Morant are opposite ends of the spectrum. At 6 feet 7 inches and 230 pounds, Doncic is a larger, stronger than average point guard with an impeccable basketball IQ and ridiculous shooting and passing accuracy. On the other hand, Morant is a 6 foot 2 inch, lightning fast point guard with unfathomable amplitude and anywhere-on-the-court shooting ability. Both Doncic and Morant are All-Stars who were named NBA Rookie of the Year in their respective first seasons.

During the 2021-22 season Doncic, Jalen Brunson and Spencer Dinwiddie led the Mavericks to the Western Conference Finals, beating out the Grizzlies in three of their last four games. During the 2022-23 season, the Grizzlies, led by Morant, Desmond Bane and Jaren Jackson Jr, beat out the Mavericks in three of their last four games, ascending to the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

With such back and forth, high stakes gameplay in recent seasons, the Mavericks-Grizzlies rivalry looks ready to blossom in the seasons to come.
