In Game 2 the Grizzlies handed the Warriors only their 3rd home loss of the season and now Memphis has home court advantage in the series. Mike Conley’s return for the Grizzlies was big in Game 2 going for 22 points, but the main reason they won was their defense. In the game Memphis held the league’s highest scoring team to only 90 points on 41.9% shooting.
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson both struggled in Game 2 and they combined for 32 points on13/34 shooting. I think they will struggle again, as Memphis plays great defense at home. The Grizzlies may not get the win in this game, but they will at least keep it close and cover the spread.
