Grizzlies vs. Warriors Game Info
Date: Wednesday, April 13, 2016
Time: 10:30 p.m. ET
TV Channel: ESPN
Location: Oracle Arena, Oakland, California
These two teams met last week, with a late tip-in from Draymond Green proving to be the game-winner in a 100-99 Dubs victory. The Grizzlies, playing with an array of injuries, did a good job defensively on Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, holding the Splash Bros to 14-of-38 shooting and just 5-of-24 from beyond the arc.
But don’t expect that to happen again.
The Grizzlies are 3-12 in their last 15. Over that span, they are allowing 111.1 points per 100 possessions, the third-worst mark in the NBA.
Now on the road, where they sit at just 1-7 in their last eight, the Grizzlies are going to have to try to slow down an offensive attack that averages an NBA-best 114.3 points per 100 possessions at home. The chances of that happening, especially with the Warriors clearly locked in after their recent hiccups against the Celtics and Timberwolves, are extremely low.
Oddsmakers seem to agree:
In other words, the record is falling.
