Wednesday night gave us one of the most exciting games of the NBA season, as the Lakers held off Steph Curry and the Warriors, coming from 13 points down to win on a three from LeBron James with less than a minute left in the game. The Warriors, with the loss, will now get a rematch with the Grizzlies, who beat the Spurs on Wednesday, 100-96.
The Grizzlies and the Warriors squared off at Golden State on the final day of the regular season with a spot in the 7-8 game on the line, and the Warriors won thanks to a 46-point outburst from Steph.
By now, we all know what Golden State is. They’re one of the best defensive teams in the NBA, and on the nights where Steph goes off, they can beat anybody. Case-in-point: Despite a number of bad second-half turnovers last night, they were one possession away from knocking off the Lakers in Los Angeles.
The Grizzlies are a fun team with a young core and a chance to be a threat sooner rather than later, but I just cannot envision a situation where Steph is not in this year’s playoffs. I’ll be backing the Warriors.
