Golden State Warriors vs. Memphis Grizzlies Game 6 Prediction

The Golden State Warriors shot 45% from the field but still ended up losing to the Memphis Grizzlies, 134-95 in Game 5. However, the Warriors will now take their 3-2 West semifinals lead, home, looking for just one more win.

The Warriors were down by 27 at halftime in Game 5 and couldn't recover from that deficit. The Grizzlies earned 18 offensive rebounds, had 37 assists, earned 22 turnovers on the defensive end, and only turned the ball over 10 times. When the Grizzlies earned their turnovers, they rarely scored off those turnovers, however, scoring just 10 points off 22 turnovers. That's something that will need to be addressed if you're the Grizzlies.

Anyway, Memphis dominated in the paint and got to the line 17 more times than the Warriors. Memphis simply outplayed the Warriors with effort. Rebounding is effort. Being aggressive is effort.

Memphis only shot 47.5% from the field and only nailed four more threes than Golden State in that Game 5. However, Memphis continued to work on the glass and also assisted on so many baskets. The cohesion was there for Memphis, even without Ja Morant on the floor.

It's been an exciting run for Memphis. A lot of the NBA world was counting them out coming into this game, like myself. However, the Grizzlies got heavy contributions from Jaren Jackson Jr., Tyus Jones, and Desmond Bane, who all had 21 points each.

Memphis has been a fun story all year. But with Golden State headed back, the Warriors will play with more heart and energy. They'll win more chances on the glass and limit turnovers, unlike Wednesday night.

Give me the Warriors at home.
