The Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies meet Tuesday in Game 2 of the NBA Playoffs at the FedExForum. The Golden State Warriors look for another win to take a quick 2-0 series lead. The Memphis Grizzlies need a win to even up the series at 1-1.
The Golden State Warriors are averaging 117.8 points on 50.9 percent shooting and allowing 111 points on 46.9 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 27.3 points and 5.2 assists, while Jordan Poole is averaging 22.7 points and 3.3 rebounds. Klay Thompson is the third double-digit scorer and Andrew Wiggins is grabbing 7 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 41.3 percent from beyond the arc and 69.5 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 36.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.5 rebounds per game.
The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 114.9 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 110.3 points on 45 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 23.3 points and 10.4 assists, while Desmond Bane is averaging 21.4 points and 2 assists. Brandon Clarke is the third double-digit scorer and Dillon Brooks is grabbing 2.4 rebounds. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 37 percent from beyond the arc and 72.9 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 38.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.4 rebounds per game.
The Warriors are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a road favorite and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The Grizzlies are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 home games and 35-17-1 ATS in their last 53 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Warriors last 7 overall. The over is 5-2 in Grizzlies last 7 home games. The Warriors are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Memphis and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Game 1 was back and forth, and I have a feeling this entire series is going to play out like that. The Memphis Grizzlies have shown us time and time again they have a short memory, and they're not going to back down. The Golden State Warriors shot five percent better from the field in the opening game and still won on a last second shot and by just one point. The Memphis Grizzlies have still won five of the last eight meetings against the Warriors, and they had their chances to win the first contest. In pretty much a must win spot as you can't lose both home games and expect to advance, I'll once again grab the free bucket with the Grizzlies.
