The Grizzlies are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games and 36-17-1 ATS in their last 54 games overall. The Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Grizzlies last 7 overall. The over is 6-2 in Warriors last 8 overall. The Grizzlies are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Golden State and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

I've grabbed the points twice with the Memphis Grizzlies and have mentioned this should be a tight series throughout. While Dillon Brooks is suspended, there's a good chance the Grizzlies will get Steven Adams back, which is huge. I'd love to grab the points again. However, this feels like a spot where the Warriors find their stroke from deep thanks to help from the home crowd, and they cruise comfortably. We've seen this movie before with the Warriors. We also can't forget that the Grizzlies got punched in the mouth multiple times on the road by the Timberwolves, Minnesota is just too dumb of a team to keep a lead. The Golden State Warriors missed tons of open looks in game 2 and still barely lost. Those shots usually fall at home. Just a gut feeling here, and I'd love to be wrong for entertainment purposes, but I'll lay the chalk with the Warriors.
