The Grizzlies got off to a solid start to their current West Coast road trip with a win over the Kings, but they have lost their last two games facing the Lakers and the shorthanded Clippers. They head to NorCal to take on a hot Warriors team and they are major 13-point underdogs.
The Warriors have won 11 of their last 12 games including their last four and they have the best record in the NBA.
In their last games the Warriors beat the Portland Trailblazers 125-117 and the Grizzlies lost to the L.A. Clippers 115-106.
The Grizzlies rank 28th in the league in points per game and 3rd in opponents’ points per game.
The Grizzlies are led by their defense, which is only giving up an average of 98.6 ppg. However, in losing their last two games to the teams from L.A. they have given up 115 and 116 points respectively.
In the loss to the Clippers the Grizzlies’ D failed them allowing L.A. to shoot 50.7% from the floor while they shot 43.2%. The Grizzlies lost the game in the 3rd quarter when they were outscored by 14 points.
Even battling an ankle injury Marc Gasol was the lead scorer for the Grizzlies going for 23 points on 9 a6 shooting. Mike Conley went for 17 points in the game, but struggled with his shot going 5/15 from the floor and he only made 1 of his 5 3-pointers.
The Grizzlies have 5 guys that are averaging in double figures, but their offense has not been the issue as of late. Since they are not a high scoring team they have to play solid D to win, which they have not done at all in their last 2 games.
The Grizzlies have failed to cover the spread in 6 of their last 8 games facing the Warriors.
The Grizzlies are 9-9 on the road this season.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors rank 1st in the league in points per game and 18th in opponents’ points per game.
In their win over the Blazers in their last game the Warriors shot 50.6% from the filed and held Portland to 44.9%. The game was pretty close mainly because the Warriors committed 13 turnovers and they did not defend the perimeter well allowing the Blazers to shoot 46.2% from behind the 3-pt arc.
Kevin Durant and Steph Curry combined to scored 65 points and each shot the rock well while Klay Thomson struggled only going for 14 points on 5/15 shooting and he missed 6 of his 7 3-pointers.
Memphis will have to get back to playing D, as there is no way they can keep up with the Warriors if tis game becomes a shootout.
The Warriors have covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 home games facing the Grizzlies.
The Warriors are 16-2 at home this season.
