Will the Game 2 of the experienced Warriors against the young Grizzlies team be as thrilling as the first game?

Golden State Warriors with their playmaker Draymond Green thrown out of game 1 after a controversial flagrant two foul on Brandon Clarke, were still able to hang on and take away home-court advantage from the Grizzlies at the end of game 1, thanks to clutch 3-pointers of Klay Thompson and Curry. Jordon Pool was phenomenal in Game 1 alongside Gary Payton 2nd who had his first playoff game as a starter due to the injury of Andre Iguodala.

The young Memphis team showed a lot of character by hanging in the game with brilliant 3-point shooting from Jackson and some clutch shots by Ja Morant who missed the possible game-winner lay up for the Grizzlies which was very well defended by Thompson.

Game 2 will be an interesting affair between these teams with both teams knowing how to control the pace of the game and force momentum shifts in their direction.

Match Preview Golden State Warriors

Steve Kerr and his Warriors having a balance of both playoff veterans and exciting young talent will look to go back home with a 2-0 lead in the series.

With Green not committing a foul that makes the crowd go,” Throw him out” in game 2, it will be easier for the Warriors to take home game 2 given the youngsters of Warriors in Poole, Kaminga and Payton played to their potential as they did in game 1.

Match Preview Memphis Grizzlies

Grizzlies would be looking to bounce back after a crushing defeat with Morant missing the potential game-winning layup at the last second.

Taylor Jenkins needs to figure out how to play Morant with Warriors guarding him below the 3 point line essentially daring him to shoot 3s. Defensively Memphis looked good in game 1 and would like to carry that forward against a lethal Warriors offence if they want to take away game 2 in front of the home crowd.
