Now they sit one game behind the Warriors for second place in the West, beaten them twice this season, and Phoenix will be without Paul for at least the next month, potentially putting the overall No. 1 seed up for grabs. Can they win the whole thing? Probably not until Jaren Jackson makes another leap, or they can convince a top-15 talent to tag team with Ja. But even entertaining that possibility is a testament to these precocious Grizzlies as they continue defying conventional wisdom and upsetting the order of the league.
