The Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors will square off for the fourth and final time of the regular season. Both teams have ten games remaining on the season and plenty to play for moving forward.
Memphis has the most to play for in their final games of the regular season, a team that was in the top four of the Western Conference for much of the year now finds themselves in the seven seed and slated to play the San Antonio Spurs
However they aren’t far behind the Oklahoma City Thunder for the right to avoid playing the Spurs and could even ascend to the four seed with a streak of wins and some help from the teams in front of them.
The Grizzlies have been mostly healthy in the second half of the season and continue to be a stable team with Mike Conley running the point and perennial Defensive Player of the Year candidate Marc Gasol manning the middle.
Memphis plays at one of the slowest paces in the league offensively, a team content to play in the half court and get the best shot out of their sets. Where they thrive and have always thrived during this tenure of players is defensively.
The Grizzlies are consistently in the top five in defensive points allowed and defensive efficiency. They have high level perimeter defenders in Conley and Tony Allen and if they do get beat off the dribble, they can funnel the player into a high level rim protector in Gasol.
The Warriors have struggled with teams like the Grizzlies, including the Grizzlies themselves, over the years.
They’re a physical team that will do all that they can to bully the other team and can slow the pace down to a frustrating pace for teams that like to run.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors dealt with some issues after losing Kevin Durant over a month ago, losing three in a row at one point, their highest regular season total in years. They have since rebounded and found ways to play without the former MVP.
This has meant increased responsibility for some of their players not in their plans for this season. The biggest beneficiaries have been rookie Patrick McCaw and veteran Matt Barnes. Barnes started the year with Sacramento and was waived as a result of the DeMarcus Cousins trade.
Asking two players that aren’t assimilated to the system and the winning culture of the Warriors has been a big ask. McCaw has doubled his minutes and Barnes wasn’t even on the team a month ago.
And both players, as well as the team, has struggled as a result.
It’s only now that the players and the team are beginning to get into a rhythm with their extra pieces. And honestly, despite the growing pains, it can only help the team in the long run.
The Warriors have essentially gotten two after thought players ready for the playoff drive that’s ahead of them.
