Will the Warriors take care of business at home and advance to conference finals or does Memphis has the will to force a Game 7 at home?

Just when you thought the series was over and the Warriors will advance to the conference finals, Memphis handed over the Warriors’ 6th worst loss of franchise history winning the game 4 by 39 points. Nobody saw a Memphis team without its highest scorer Ja Morant throughout the regular season and playoffs to beat the Warriors but what an effort by this young and valiant team, at one point they were leading by 55 points in the third quarter, that is right, 55 points.

They outscored the Warriors and forced 22 turnovers, shot the ball around 50% and thanks to their big men Adams, Jackson and Clarkson, absolutely crushed the warriors on board. Warriors admitted they played horrendous basketball in absence of their head coach Steve Kerr who is out because of health and safety protocols. Grizzlies dominated them right from the tip-off till the sound of the buzzer in the 4th quarter and the entire team contributed with 7 Memphis jerseys recording the score in double digits on the stat sheet.

Match Preview Golden State Warriors

Warriors have to realise it is not the same series that they started in Memphis, with Morant out, the Memphis are no longer playing small-ball lineups rather they are going big since the last two games and attacking the board for offensive rebounds and second-chance points. They have won 3 championships in 5 years span and what it takes to close out games and bounce back from such a huge defeat.
As D.Green said on his podcast, they will go through the films and make the required adjustments to improve their rebounding, something they did quite well in the first 3 games which set their transition offence in rhythm.
They will be looking to wrap us the series at home and advance to conference finals avoiding a game 7 on road.

Match Preview Memphis Grizzlies

Taylor Jenkins and Grizzlies have proven how tough they are with a huge victory over the Dubs in Game 5 but they realise they haven’t defeated Warriors at home this series, they will be looking forward to doing that and forcing a game 7. They have been going big in the last two games and isolation plays of Morant have been replaced by high pick and roll action which ends up in attacking the rim against a smaller Warrior team. They will look forward to continuing that in Game 6 while understanding that Curry and Thompson will not be having a rough shooting night once again. Memphis needs to control the pace of the game and force the Warriors to play at their pace or else the Warriors will crush them in transition.
