The Warriors have done better than expected, as they are currently 9th in the league. Maintaining the Western Conference spot with a 21-20 record. The team will be without four key players tonight, including Stephen Curry, who will start the duel with the Grizzlies in an attempt to secure a playoff spot.
The Grizzlies have lost three of their last four games, but are just one game behind the Warriors with an 18-19 record. The young team will try to take advantage of the Warriors, who will likely be without their two key players, Stephen Curry and Kelly Oubre.
Here’s what sports bettors think about the Grizzly Warriors’ opening odds.
Paris NBA : Grizzly Warriors Stakes
Golden State Warriors +7.5 (-115)
Memphis Grizzlies -7.5 (-105)
More than 220.5 points (-110)
less than 220.5 points (-110)
Why the Warriors can close the gap.
The Warriors will likely have to do without Stephen Curry, Kelly Oubre, James Wiseman and Eric Paschall tonight against the Grizzlies.
The Warriors are especially missing the offensive prowess of Curry, who is averaging 29.0 points so far, hitting about 50 percent from the field and 40 percent from behind the three-point line, along with 6.2 assists and 5.3 rebounds.
With such a strong presence from the Warriors, the team will need big performances from Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green.
Andrew Wiggins is having a decent season, with 17 points and 2.1 assists per game. He needs to handle the ball more, both with Curry and Oubre, and he just needs a dominant performance.
Draymond Green isn’t that talented offensively, but he has impressed this season with his ball handling, averaging 8.5 assists per game. Without Curry, Green will have to work with the ball more offensively to keep his teammates open.
In addition to these two players, the Warriors will need players who normally come off the bench and play few minutes to be productive in the offense, such as Jordan Poole, Juan Toscano-Anderson, Damion Lee and Kent Bazemore.
It will be a tough night for the Warriors against a very talented young team, the Grizzlies. If Wiggins and Green can have a big game and the bench players play productive minutes, the Warriors have a chance to beat the Grizzlies tonight and cover the spread.
Why the Grizzlies can cover the spread
The Grizzlies are coming off a big win over Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat.
No one had a big night for the Grizzlies, but everyone contributed on both ends of the floor where all 10 players who saw minutes scored at least five points and held the Heat to 85 points, 36% from the field and 23% from behind the three-point line.
The Grizzlies’ problem is the inconsistency of their play with a young and inexperienced team. But if Ja Morant and the rest of the Grizzlies’ starters have a better night and the bench players contribute, they should win tonight against a Warriors team without Stephen Curry and Kelly Oubre.
Warriors-Grizzlies Finals Prediction and Pick
The Warriors come into this game without, likely, three starters, and especially without Stephen Curry. If they want a chance to cover the spread, they will need big performances from Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green, as well as strong performances from the bench players. Fortunately for the Warriors, they don’t know which Grizzlies team they’re up against tonight. The young team has been inconsistent this season, losing three of their last four games. Still, the Grizzlies should win this game easily and cover the spread if they can put on the same performance they did against the Miami Heat on Wednesday night.
