Analysis
Root Reserve—-Memphis Golden St is not playing championship ball. Their attitude seems to be unfocused thinking they can turn it on whenever they need to. That’s hard to do against playoff teams. Down 3-1 and with Ja Morant ruled out for the rest of the playoffs, hope appeared to have run out for Memphis. However, after throttling the Warriors in Game 5 there is a reason for renewed optimism as the Grizzlies demonstrated how deep of a roster they have. The scary news for the Warriors is that they lost by close to 40 points even though they didn't shoot the ball that bad converting at 45% from the field. Look for Memphis to be active on the boards again in Game 6 as they look to press their advantage. The Grizzlies owned a decisive 55-37 edge on the glass, including an 18-4 advantage in offensive rebounding. The disparity in rebounding was astonishing, but it should be noted that Memphis ranks as the #1 offensive rebounding team in the NBA. If they can come anywhere near replicating these stats in Game 6, the Grizzlies will feel really confident in their ability to force a Game 7. While rebounding will not be as lopsided, the Grizzlies will be able to extend enough possessions to hang around throughout the duration of this contest. Memphis is 5-1 ATS in their last six, while the Warriors are just 1-6 ATS in their last seven. The Grizzlies rank as the #2 scoring offense in the NBA averaging 115.5 per game. They will look to disrupt on the defensive end once again in Game 6 after racking up 12 steals in Game 5. Even if they can't win it outright, expect this game to stay close until the end.
