On Sunday, May 16th the Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors will meet for the third and final time this season. The teams played a back-to-back set on March 19th (116-103) won by Golden State and on March 20th (111-103) that the Grizzlies won.
This is one of the more compelling games of the final day of the season given these teams are fighting for position in the play-in tournament.
Eighth and ninth final seeding is on the line with the clear preference for eighth as that could mean playing only one match instead of two. And, the ninth-place finisher faces a one-game elimination playing the tenth seeded San Antonio Spurs.
The seventh seed won’t be confirmed until games Sunday but could feature either the Lakers or Blazers.
Last season, the squads played three times with Memphis taking two of the three contests. The Warriors hold the all-time record between the squads with 49 victories in the team’s 94 meetings.
For the second season in a row, the Memphis Grizzlies will participate in the play-in tournament. They’re hoping to turn that opportunity into an actual playoff berth.

Xavier Tillman (16), John Konchar (15), and De’Anthony Melton (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
