On the Road again: Warriors vs Grizzlies Round 3

We'll be needing these "Splash Brothers" tonight. - Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Warriors are back on the road again after a difficult loss against the Houston Rockets. The Memphis Grizzlies are looking to take their 11th straight win vs our Dubs. (2 this season) Can the Warriors finally put a stop to their losing streak? Warriors vs the Grizzlies, it’s about to go down!

Tip-off: 7:30pm PT
Where: FedExForum Memphis, Tennessee
TV: NBA TV/CSN Bay Area | Radio: KNBR 680
Blog Buddy: Grizzly Bear Blues

I'm not a fan of back to back road games and tonights game could get ugly.

What else can I say? We're not fully healthy & it didn't help in last night's game vs the Houston Rockets, which started out real ugly. Enter the Memphis Grizzlies, these guys are 2-0 this season against our Dubs. We're either going to need a really good Jermaine O'Neal speech or some plain old luck. (11 straight losses against Memphis... ouch!)

Keys to survival... I mean a victory:

- We've said it time and time again... Contain Zach Randolph by playing some over the top defense for all 4 quarters (still haven't seen it yet, lol).

- Make a "splash" in Memphis. Meaning let the Splash Brothers go crazy on the 3-point line. If we can get both Klay & Steph to drain their shots it's gonna be a huge headache for the Grizzlies.

- Stop Mike Conley from scoring on us. He's averaging 19.5 points vs our squad this season.

- We saw some great contributions from our bench last night: Bazemore with 12 buckets, Speights with 9 pts/7 rebounds, O'neal with 5 pts/5 rebounds & a motivational speech to the team. If we can get a little more of this and just a little bit more from the folks coming off the bench, a win can be a possibility.

- Just break that 11 game losing streak against the Grizzlies. Make it a point to win on the road and hand Memphis their fifth loss in 7 games. Go Dubs!

Predictions:

- Solid performance from Stephen Curry as usual

- Lights out above the arc from Klay Thompson

- It was great to see Kent Bazemore drop 12 points against Houston last night - I think we'll see a bigger contribution from him tonight

- Andrew Bogut's gonna get a block party going in Memphis

- Harrison Barnes is our x-factor tonight, heck maybe even our Warriors Wonder!

- Warriors win by 4. (fingers crossed!)
