Golden State Warriors vs Memphis Grizzlies match preview and statistics

The Warriors exquisitely won game 4, they shot over 60% from the field and they were just too much to handle for the young and inexperienced Grizzlies team.

Stephen Curry led the team with 30 points, 6 assists and a steal while Jordan Poole followed up with 27 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists.

Klay Thompson dropped 21 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists.

Team statistics: 53/84 (63.1%) field goals, 17/32 (53.1%) 3 pointers, 19/21 (90.5%) free throws, 34 assists, 38 total rebounds, 5 steals, 4 blocks, 17 turnovers, 24 fouls.

Warriors team news: James Wiseman, Gary Payton II and Andre Iguodala are ruled out for the match while Otto Porter Jr is listed probably.

The Grizzlies just couldn’t match up with the Warriors shooting and they were also without their best perimeter defender Dillon Brooks who was suspended for the game. This distorted the team’s defense and was part of the reason why the Warriors had a lot of easy looks.

In game 3 against the Warriors, Ja Morant delivered again scoring a game-high 34 points and adding 7 assists and 3 steals in a game where he was tasked with carrying the team’s offense again.

Desmond Bane followed with 16 points and 3 boards while Jaren Jackson Jr added 15 points and 2 steals.

De’Anthony Melton from the bench dropped 12 points and 4 rebounds.

Team statistics: 40/92 (43.5%) field goals, 16/43 (37.2%) 3 pointers, 16/21 (76.2%) free throws, 21 assists, 29 total rebounds, 3 blocks, 8 steals, 10 turnovers, 20 fouls.

Grizzlies team news: Santi Aldalma and Killian Tillie are ruled out for the match while Ja Morant is listed as questionable for the game.

Golden State Warriors projected starting lineup:

  • Point guard: Stephen Curry
  • Shooting guard: Klay Thompson
  • Small forward: Andrew Wiggins
  • Power forward: Jonathan Kuminga
  • Center: Draymond Green

Stephen Curry is the key player to watch out for. He dropped 30 points in game 3 against the Grizzlies, and he’s also leading the team in points per game this series with 27.0 ppg. We’ve yet to see him explode in this series but he sure has the potential to do so.

Memphis Grizzlies projected starting lineup:

  • Point guard: Ja Morant
  • Shooting guard: Desmond Bane
  • Small forward: Ziaire Williams
  • Power forward: Jaren Jackson Jr
  • Center: Xavier Tillman

Golden State Warriors vs Memphis Grizzlies predictions and betting tips

The Golden State Warriors shot unbelievably well from the field and 3-point line in game 3. They were 63.1% from the field and an incredible 53.1% from deep, they might be unlikely to repeat the same feat in game 4 but with the Warriors flooring a starting five full of perimeter shooters which the Grizzlies have had no answer for throughout this series and Ja Morant status still questionable for game 4, the Warriors have game 4 on lock. Also, the Warriors boast of a much better depth than the Grizzlies with 51 bench points compared to the Grizzlies’ 35 bench points.

The Grizzlies, unless players like Desmond Bane who has been quiet in this series step up, and Brandon Clarke replicates his performance in the Timberwolves series, will continue to struggle against the Warriors. Ja Morant has been incredible for them this series and the way game 3 ended putting him up questionable for game 4 further adds to the Grizzlies' woes even though they’d have Dillon Brooks back for game 4, without Ja Morant, the Warriors are poised to win. Predictions for this game are the Golden State Warriors to win and over 224.5 points.
