Prediction

The Grizzlies have been on fire lately as they have won 8 of their last 10 games averaging 114.5 points per game on that strecht and are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games vs Warriors. Desmond Bane scored 17 points in his return which is great news for the team offense. The Warriors are shorthanded without Curry and Wiggins and they have struggled without them. The Grizzlies offense will be too much for this Warriors team who's allowing 117 points per game. Take the Grizzlies.
