The Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors meet Thursday in NBA action at the Chase Center. The Memphis Grizzlies look for a win after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Golden State Warriors look for a win after winning six of their last eight games.
The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 110.8 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 108.5 points on 45.7 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 23.7 points and 6.9 assists, while Dillon Brooks is averaging 19.7 points and 3.6 rebounds. Desmond Bane is the third double-digit scorer and Jaren Jackson Jr. is dishing 1 assist. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 75.2 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 37.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.2 rebounds per game.
The Golden State Warriors are averaging 111.5 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 101 points on 42.6 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 27.1 points and 6 assists, while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 18.7 points and 4.5 rebounds. Jordan Poole is the third double-digit scorer and Draymond Green is grabbing 8 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 36.4 percent from beyond the arc and 75.5 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 32.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.8 rebounds per game.
The Grizzlies are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Warriors are 35-16-1 ATS in their last 52 home games and 33-16-2 ATS in their last 51 games overall. The under is 7-3 in Grizzlies last 10 overall. The under is 21-8-1 in Warriors last 30 overall. The under is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Golden State and 21-7 in the last 28 meetings.
The Memphis Grizzlies continue to pile up the wins and covers, and now they got their best player back in Morant. The free points are tempting here. With that said, the Golden State Warriors have been winning and covering machines all season long, and they win at home by an average of 16 points while allowing 41.5 percent shooting from the field. As good as the Grizzlies have been, I'm not betting against the Warriors until the tickets stop cashing.
