Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry hasn’t missed a beat since his MVP season of 2014-15. After a year in which he finished sixth in the league in scoring with 23.8 points per game, and third in 3-point shooting percentage at 44.3, he’s started out this campaign averaging 39.3 points, and shooting 48.6 percent from beyond the arc.
Curry will face a test in a Memphis Grizzlies team that prides itself on its play at the defensive end. The Grizzlies gave the Warriors a test in the playoffs a year ago before being ousted in the Western Conference semifinals.
The Warriors have been terrific at home over the past two seasons, but the Grizzlies are one of only three teams to hand the Warriors a loss on their home court over the past 50 games played at Oracle Arena, including postseason play.
The Grizzlies have finished in the top five in scoring defense each of the past four season, but have given up 100.0 points per game on 48.1 percent shooting thus far this season. Now they’ll face a Warriors team that is averaging 119.0 points on 47.6 percent shooting for the season.
Golden State Warriors:
Curry put up 53 points in Saturday’s 134-120 win over the New Orleans Pelicans. That performance included a 28-point third quarter from Curry – the highest scoring quarter of his career. In that game, he hit on eight 3-pointers, and hit on all 11 of his free throw attempts to go along with nine assists and four steals.
However, his backcourt mate hasn’t been right this season. Klay Thompson hasn’t played more than 28 minutes for Golden State. He’s been slowed by an ailing back. Even still, the Warriors as a team have been able to hit on 40.7 percent of their shots from long range.
NBA Betting Trends:
The Grizzlies are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games when their opponent allows 100 or more points in their previous game.
The Warriors are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games after allowing 100 or more points in their previous game.
The Grizzlies are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings between these teams in Golden State.
Free NBA Prediction:
This game come early in the season, but there will be a definite playoff feel to this game. There will be no love lost between these teams after last year’s postseason series. Both play better at the defensive end than they have thus far, so points figure to be at a premium.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Memphis +8.5
The Grizzlies play old-school basketball. While other teams get smaller and quicker, Memphis prides itself on its ability to dominate the paint, and that advantage will play a big part in deciding this matchup.
