The Golden State Warriors really need to get this win against the Memphis Grizzlies tonight and take a commanding 61-44 lead into halftime.
Warriors star Stephen Curry is turning in a MVP performance with 21 points on 8-for-14 shooting, but Harrison Barnes has also been impressive with not only eight first half points but also a newfound aggression unlike any we've seen from him before.
And of course there was the big adjustment on the defensive end: putting Andrew Bogut on Tony Allen and leaving him wide open all half.
Let's hope they come out strong in the second half.
It's the team we're used to seeing and, without jinxing anything, we can at least be happy with the first half performance.
