Free NBA Pick
This game pits the Warriors, who have the highest scoring team in the league, against the Grizzlies, who have the league’s 2nd best defense in terms of opponents’ points allowed. The Grizzlies are the only team the Warriors have not beaten this season. Memphis is coming off their most lopsided home loss of the season.
While the Grizzlies have won 12 of their last 14 games facing the Warriors I am taking Golden State in this one. They are streaking winners of 7 straight and even on the road against a tough Portland team in their last game they put up 122 points and shot a scorching FG% of 60.2%. The Grizzlies win with defense, but in their loss to the Cavs they allowed Cleveland to shoot 51.2% from the floor.
