Golden State Warriors vs Memphis Grizzlies: Match Prediction
This Season, with the emergence of Ja Morant, Grizzlies is a very entertaining team. Warriors have been there with Splash Brothers making long-range shots and making smooth passes. NBA fans are in for a treat with this highly energetic and fast-paced game. Both teams have great ball handlers and love to play ‘short’.
For the Warriors, surely Stephen Curry will be the difference-maker in absence of Klay Thompson. Steve Kerr will have his well-rehearsed team, who are playing with each other for a long time. Understanding between players in offence and mainly in defence is a positive point for Warriors.
Draymond Green and veteran Andre Iguodala have a great sense of double-teaming opponent’s scorer. Curry, Green, and Wiggins are great in reading the game, so they can have important steals and move the ball forward faster.
Then we have in-form Ja Morant, leading in points per game and assists per game for Memphis. Other guards Bane and Melton need to be more productive to ease the pressure off Morant. It is obvious that, when Morant is on the bench, opponents control the game.
Keeping Ja Morant below 30 Points, the Warriors will continue their unbeaten streak to 5-0.
