The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference, 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 0 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Grizzlies are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 home games, 3-14 ATS in their last 17 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games. The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the home team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The over is 9-3 in Grizzlies last 12 overall. The under is 17-5 in Warriors last 22 overall.
It's fair to expect the Golden State Warriors to rest majority of their starters with everything locked up in the West, but their roster is still a lot more attractive than what the Grizzlies have to offer. The Memphis Grizzlies have been resting nearly half their roster lately and it's led to guys who shouldn't be playing in an NBA game playing 30 or so minutes. While competitive against the Detroit Pistons last night, the Grizzlies blew a 20-point lead rather quickly and showed the lack of available bodies is tough to overcome. No matter who plays for the Warriors, it's Golden State or pass.
