Individual Player Analysis

As Golden State travels to take on the Memphis Grizzlies, the Warriors’ leading scorer is Stephen Curry. Through 64 games, Curry is averaging 25 points. On the season, he has surpassed his season average in 45.0% of his games. Against the Grizzlies, Curry will need to be on top of his game as Memphis is allowing their opponent’s top scorer to surpass their average in 40.0% of their games, placing them in the top 10. On the other side, the Grizzlies will need another big effort from Jaren Jackson Jr. who led the team with 21 points in game 4. In addition, they will look for a better outing from Desmond Bane, who finished with just 8 points. However, they will look to do so against a Warriors defense that has been tough on their opponent’s top scorers. So far, leading scores have surpassed their season average at a rate of just 43.08%. This figure is good for a rank of 6th in the league.

Matchup Analysis

The Grizzlies come into this game as the more efficient offensive team, averaging 110.2 points per 100 possessions. When playing as the superior offensive unit, Memphis is winning at a rate of 78%.

Joe’s Pick to Cover the Spread

Heading into game 5 of this Western Conference semi-finals, the Warriors have the opportunity to be the first team to advance to the Conference Finals, as they lead 3-1. On the other side, the Grizzlies will look to continue their season but will do so without Ja Morant. Even though the team was 20-5 without their top scorer during the regular season, taking down the Warriors is a different story. Memphis gave it their all in game 4, but still fells short to a Golden State unit that hit just 24% of their 3’s. Although the Grizzlies will benefit from playing at home, this game has all the feel of a closeout game for the Warriors. I like Golden State to cover.
