Game 3. Series score 1:1
Memphis still managed to take one home game out of two from Golden State. Will the Grizzlies succeed on the road now? Let's pick a few bets on game three of the second-round NBA playoff series at once.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Golden State met the minimum goal
The Warriors finished the regular season below Memphis, so they started the series in the second round on the road. That fact does not bode well for Steve Kerr's team, though. In the first game in Tennessee, the Warriors defeated the Grizzlies and took home-court advantage.
Golden State came close to winning the second game as well. But a series of questionable officiating decisions and the phenomenal play of the leader Ja Morant kept the Warriors from leaving Memphis with a two-game lead. 101-106 – besides Morant and the refs, Klay Thompson, who had a very poor game, should also be noted. One of the best shooters in basketball history made only two of his 12 three-pointers.
Memphis earned the right to return home for Game 5
By winning the second game of the series, the Grizzlies extended their streak. Now should they lose even two games in San Francisco, Taylor Jenkins's team will have a chance to play the fifth game at home.
Memphis was able to win the second game of the confrontation mostly thanks to Ja Morant. The Grizzlies' leader finished the game with 47 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists.
- Golden State: James Wiseman, Gary Payton will not play. Andre Iguodala is questionable;
- Memphis: Killian Tillie will not play. Steven Adams, Santi Aldama are questionable.
The series score is 1-1.
Expert Betting Tips
Taking one away game out of two, Golden State wrested home-court advantage from Memphis. There is almost no doubt that the Warriors will solidify their position in the series in game three. In the second game, the Grizzlies truly went the extra mile. Ja Morant had to score nearly 50 points and the refs had to make several controversial decisions in favor of the Grizzlies at the end to ensure the score was even before the two games in San Francisco. At the Chase Center, the Warriors and Klay Thompson, who failed in the second game, will surely make up for whatever happened in Tennessee.
Prediction: a solid win for Golden State.
- Klay Thompson TO (21.5) for 1.83;
- H1 (-6.5) for 1.892;
- W1+TO (225.5) for 2.50.
