Grizzlies are Finding a Way to Win the Close Games

The Western Conference-leading Golden State Warriors continue to cruise through league with ease, as they’re averaging an eye-popping 119.3 points per game while shooting 50.1 percent from the field - the best in the league. The Dubs will look to collect their fifth win in as many games against the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 8-0 SU in their last 8 games when they were on the road.
  • The Grizzlies are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games as the underdog.
  • The Warriors are 4-7-1 ATS in their last 12 games after not covering their previous game.

Memphis is playing without its two max-contract players, as small forward Chandler Parsons and point guard Mike Conley are sidelined with injuries. Longtime big man Marc Gasol has picked up the slack, as the Spaniard poured in 36 points on 13-of-24 shooting in Thursday’s 88-86 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Grizz are on a winning streak of their own, winning five straight ahead of the tilt. They’ve done so by winning close games, with each win coming by five or fewer points. Memphis held Portland to 30.5 percent shooting in the contest.

A stacked team like the Warriors is often tabbed with the favorite label, but they’ve been cashing in that regard of late. Golden State is 16-1 SU in their last 17 as faves.
