Golden State Warriors vs Memphis Grizzlies – NBA: Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies face off tonight at the Oracle Arena
In a game between the 1st and 15th places of the Western Conference.
The Golden State Warriors have a record of 28 wins and 8 losses, and they continue to stroll heading towards the play-offs.
However, the team has been more inconsistent on this stage, compared to previous seasons, and at home, with a record of 14 wins and 5 losses, they haven’t been as consistent.
The Warriors are coming off a loss last night when they hosted the Charlotte Hornets, in what was their 2nd loss on the last 4 games.
Curiously, or not, those losses happened with Stephen Curry, the team’s key player, still being injured.
Since Curry got injured, he who is the main 3-pts shooter of the team, the Warriors’ points scored per game average has dropped significantly.
Good news for the fans of this team is the possible return of Stephen Curry tonight, at least to play some minutes in order to regain some rhythm.
The Grizzlies are coming off a win, only their 4th win on the last 20 games.
But despite being in last place of the Western Conference, this Memphis team is one of the best defending teams of the NBA, only allowing an average of 101.2 points per match to their opponents.
Even 9 days ago, these 2 teams have met, and the Warriors have only won 97-84.
Golden State Warriors vs Memphis Grizzlies – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With or without Curry, the difference between these two teams is huge, and the Warriors’ win isn’t even questionable.
But the Grizzlies are good defensively and even with the hypothetical return of Curry, I don’t believe that the Warriors will win by a very large margin.
