The Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies meet Thursday in NBA action at the FedExForum. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Golden State Warriors are averaging 118 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 117.1 points on 46.9 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 29.4 points and 6.4 assists, while Klay Thompson is averaging 22.1 points and 2.5 assists. Jordan Poole is the third double-digit scorer and Andrew Wiggins is dishing 2.3 assists. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 38.6 percent from beyond the arc and 79.3 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.2 rebounds per game.

The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 115.8 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 112 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 27.1 points and 8.2 assists, while Desmond Bane is averaging 21.5 points and 5 rebounds. Jaren Jackson Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Dillon Brooks is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 72.4 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 35.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.3 rebounds per game.

The Warriors are 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Grizzlies are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games and 40-17-1 ATS in their last 58 home games. The under is 7-1 in Warriors last 8 overall. The under is 15-5-1 in Grizzlies last 21 overall. The Warriors are 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Memphis and 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

The Golden State Warriors are as healthy as they've been in a while, and they need a win to improve their spot in the standings. The Memphis Grizzlies are not only dealing with the Morant issues, but they're banged up overall, and they're not playing well right now. The Warriors are too experienced to lose a game like this, as these are the spots they need to take advantage of. I'll lay the bucket.
