The fight for the top seed in the NBA Western Conference has never been so heated.
Right now, the Denver Nuggets and Memphis Grizzlies are duking it out game after game for supremacy.
Both teams are tied at 30-13, which is an incredible feat.
It is made even more incredible when you see that both teams are in the midst of respective win streaks.
The Nuggets have won six games in a row, which is obviously amazing in such a competitive league.
Wow, Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies have won 10 straight games in a row.

But following Monday night’s huge win over the Phoenix Suns, Ja Morant and his Grizzlies have now won 10 games in a row.
That’s the best streak in the NBA right now and it’s yet another instance of a team putting together a long string of wins.
All season long, we have seen multiple franchises like the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets put together astonishing win streaks.
Now it’s the Grizzlies’ turn.
The power of the Grizzlies rests on multiple players – this is not just Morant’s team.
And they have all had fun while doing it – there are few teams that appear as fired up and excited to play as Memphis.
In the days ahead, the Grizz will face off against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, Suns again, and Sacramento Kings.
They will try to claim a few more wins and finally climb above the Nuggets.
If they can keep playing like this and remain healthy, the Grizzlies may have their best postseason ever.
