The Golden State Warriors are on a different level than all 29 other teams across the NBA. The Memphis Grizzlies aren’t a top-tier squad, but they’re playing surprisingly well without Mike Conley.
Golden State Warriors
Entering this contest, the Warriors have won four straight. Not bad, right?
Their most recent loss came five contests ago against the Houston Rockets.
That loss is the team’s only unsuccessful outing since Nov. 4.
That’s a ridiculous mark, putting any questions of this group failing to jell to rest.
So far this season, Golden State has had an offensive attack on pace to be the greatest of all time.
That shouldn’t be surprising considering the top three options are Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson (Thompson did just go for 60 points in 29 minutes, after all), but the team is somehow exceeding even its own lofty expectations.
Golden State’s offense is going to be a problem for the Grizzlies. The Warriors are putting up 119.3 points per contest (first in the NBA), while Memphis is 27th in the league putting up just 97.5 points per night.
The Grizzlies’ calling card without Conley leading the way, as it’ been for so long, is defense.
So far this season, Memphis is allowing just 97.9 points per game, which is why they’ve been able to not only stay afloat in Conley’s absence, but exceed all expectations.
Against the Warriors, defense is going to be crucial considering the fact that nobody is going to simply outfire Golden State — especially not a team with the makeup of these Grizzlies.
The key is going to be physicality. “Playing good defense” is never part of the game plan for Memphis — it’s just what the team does.
But being extra physical both in the paint and on the perimeter are what will make the biggest difference here.
As good as Golden is when it’s free-flowing and playing in transition, they lose their cool and become less efficient when teams are able to get in their heads.
