Warriors vs. Grizzlies Prediction & Pick

Golden State held a 106-93 lead over Brooklyn with under seven minutes left before it was outscored 27-10 the rest of the way in a defensive collapse. It was more of the same for the Warriors as they allow 118.0 points per game (No. 26 in NBA) and a three-point shooting mark of 36.2% (No. 19 in NBA).

It's been a completely different season for the Memphis defense. The Grizzlies rank first in defensive efficiency and allow only 112.4 points per game (No. 10 in NBA). Head coach Taylor Jenkins' team has the length to contest every single shot, which should give Golden State some issues on Wednesday.

I'm going to fade the Warriors until they start to prove that they can stop an opponent from scoring.

Final Score Prediction: Warriors: 121 | Grizzlies: 124

Warriors vs. Grizzlies Best Bet

Bettors hesitant to back the Grizzlies as +136 underdogs on the moneyline should feel much more comfortable backing them as a +3.5 underdog on the spread. Memphis is 8-4 against the spread (ATS) in its last 12 games against Golden State and has even won seven of those games outright.

Golden State is only 1-4 ATS in its last five home games and needed everyone outside of Ja Morant to shoot 36.9% from the floor to earn a win over Memphis in December. Trust that guys like Jaren Jackson Jr. and Desmond Bane are going to find much more success against the Warriors this time.

Bet: Memphis Grizzlies +3.5 (-110)
