The Grizzlies finished second in the Southwest Division with the second best record in franchise history at 55-27 and fifth in the Western Conference.

In the first round, they defeated the Portland Trail Blazers in five games. The Grizzlies' season ended with a 2–4 Semifinals loss to eventual NBA champion Golden State Warriors.
