The Golden State Warriors travel to the FedEx Forum to battle the Memphis Grizzlies tonight.
The Golden State Warriors have won 12 of their last 13 overall and will be looking for an eighth straight win tonight after beating the Trailblazers in a 122-108 rout on Tuesday. Stephen Curry was special once again, leading the team in scoring with 33 points and 10 assists, while Andre Iguodala added 21 points on nine of 11 shooting off the bench as the Warriors came out of the halftime and broke open a close game with a dominant 36-18 third quarter. As a team, the Warriors shot a ridiculous 60.2 percent fromt he field as six players finished in double digits in scoring.

Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies have won five of their last seven games but will be reeling a bit after they had their three-game win streak snapped by the Cavaliers in a 111-89 loss on Wednesday. Marc Gasol had 18 points while Kosta Koufos added 15 points off the bench, but this game just got away from the Grizzlies early as the Cavs got hot early and led by 91-66 after three quarters before releasing the reserves in the final quarter. Despite the loss, Memphis is still a healthy 50-22 on the season which has them 1 1/2 games clear of Houston who currently occupy the third spot in the Western Conference standings.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 5-0 ATS in their last five games following a win and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games, while the Grizzlies are 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine games against a team above .600 and 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games.
Head to head, the Warriors are 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings but the favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings.
It really wouldn't surprise me at all if the Grizzlies turned it on and caused the minor upset in front of their home crowd, but the Warriors will be looking for revenge after the Grizzlies snapped their 16-game win streak back on Dec. 16.
