Warriors unleashed on Grizzlies: 142 points, +30!

Before the meeting, Steve Kerr and Draymond Green pointed their finger at their team’s attack as responsible for losing Game 2. Last night, the latter responded in the best possible way. Attack the Grizzlies’ defense to finish the game with 63% hit success, including 70% from 2 throws and 53% from 3 shots!

The Grizzlies had no chance and it would be necessary to react quickly during match 4 to avoid returning to Memphis resulting in a 3 vs. 1 win.

The start of the Memphis game sends shockwaves through the Chase Center. Young Grizzlies start the game without pressure with 6 of 8 from 3 throws, including three at the end of possession, while the Warriors, with five loose balls and three forced shots, find themselves at -13 after six minutes of play. (8-21)!

The exit of Jonathan Cominga, a surprise start tonight, and the entries by Jordan Paul and Otto Porter Jr. coincide with the Golden State Awakening. Their defense alternates between individuals and zones, including stumbling on Ja Morant, and after a long-distance fest in the opening minutes, the Memphis struggle to score. Active Klay Thompson, Jordan Paul and Otto Porter Jr. finished 28-9 in nine minutes to give Dobbs a 36-30 lead.

The return of Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr has stopped the bleeding but Golden State continues to dominate discussions. Ten points from Stephen Curry and aggressive Andrew Wiggins gave the Warriors a 12-point lead, but their first-half 13 and 14 balls allowed Ja Morant to finish 5-0, including a basket at the bell by his side (64-57)!

this mini Pushing force Of the Grizzlies, however, he was cut off by 16-4 from the Warriors to start the second half, thanks to award-winning Klay Thompson shots (80-61).

If Ja Morant finds more solutions this third quarter, his team continues to take the water in defense. After scoring 38 points in the second quarter, the Warriors planted 37 points in the third quarter to lead with a 21-point lead (101-80). They will do a better job during the last period by passing the 40 point bar to spin towards a clear and flawless victory!

What to remember

– Start without pressure from Grizzlies. Before entering the field, Taylor Jenkins’ men were very relaxed and this was seen early in the match. Their first 18 points came at 6/8 from long range, including three points in 24 seconds by Ja Morant, Garen Jackson Jr and Zayer Williams to silence Chase’s boiled-down center. More than their success, it was their patience and application to start a match that impressed them.

Defensive adjustments to Steve Kerr. After giving too much space to Ja Morant in the first two games, the Warriors defense changed tack. They closed off the left hand of the Grizzlies and went into the chest a few times to be able to block his access to the circle. Memphis couldn’t find easy baskets and the Warriors once again shut down the recoil (38-29, including only 7 Memphis attack) to limit them to one shot per possession. If Ja Morant can adapt in the second half, he will be very lonely.

– Warriors attack goes volcanic. We suspected that Warriors wouldn’t shoot 18% of 3 throws like in Game 2, but it was impossible to expect such an explosion, both in terms of success and technique. If Golden State had 38 award-winning shots in each of their first two games, they took the night only 20 after three quarters, using their outside threat and movement to attack inside the Grizzlies’ defense and relentless circle (+18 points in a tennis racket). Prior to “Lost Time,” Stephen Curry’s teammates were 64% on shots, including 70% from two-pointers and 52% from three-pointers! If these success rates drop to a more “normal” level in Game 4, the Grizzlies will still have to readjust how they defend the 3-point streak to limit the opponent’s drives.

– Jonathan Kominga in the story. At the age of 19 years and 213 days, the rookie Warriors became the youngest player in NBA history to start a playoff game. To maintain his rotation from the first two games, Steve Kerr chose Jonathan Cominga to keep Jordan Paul as the sixth man. However, the young winger failed to impress in the opening minutes and it was Otto Porter Jr. who took his place in the fifth game early in the second half. But Jonathan Kominga recovered to finish the match with 18 points. It should also be noted that 20-year-old and 8-month-old Zayer Williams also started the game for the Grizzlies.

tops/swings

✅ Stephen Curry. The Warriors point guard set the tone for his team by attacking the circle rather than looking for a 3-point shot. He also scored 14 of his 30 points in free throws.

✅ Jordan Paul. Like Curry, Jordan Poole has also raised the defense of Memphis, bypassing opposing interiors multiple times. Ja Morant also attacked individually to defend the Grizzlies star.

✅ Klay Thompson. The Memphis stumbler, Splash Brother, found his footing and rhythm, and finished the game with 21 points, 4 from 6 from distance, and 9 rebounds.

✅ Andrew Wiggins – Otto Porter Jr. Both players continue their good streak. They were once again aggressive and energetic but also found their title. Between them, they added 30 points on 12 of 17 shots, including 5 of 7 of 3 throws.

✅ ⛔ Ja Morante. Base still scored 34 points out of 13 out of 21 shots and made 7 assists but had to work a lot more than in the first two games against the Golden State defense. On the other hand, he was targeted defensively and didn’t fight back much. He also returned to the locker room five minutes later after twisting his right knee.

Memphis Interiors. The trio of Garen Jackson Jr, Xavier Tillman and Brandon Clark had a bad evening. They finished the match 7 to 19 on shots and were superior defensively throughout the match.
