Memphis Grizzlies (16-13) vs Golden State Warriors (20-10) Live | NBA Basketball | Monday, December 17, 2018 at 10:30 pm at Oracle Arena
Memphis Grizzlies struggle to score in four of their last five games and are ready to compete with the best teams in the NBA. The Grizzlies will try to avoid a third consecutive loss when they start a four-game trip away from home by visiting the Golden state Warriors, the defending champion, on Monday.
Memphis has managed to reach 100 points in none of his last five games, but he believes the problems start on the defensive. “This is a broken record with this team, but we have to defend ourselves,” veteran baseman Garrett Temple told reporters as he looks forward to warriors. “We have to complete our possessions because the whole team is back in. We have to find a way to put them in uncomfortable situations, limit them to one take, get easy baskets, slow down, as they obviously love to run.” The Warriors have accumulated 130 points in five wins against Sacramento on Friday, after a home loss by 113-93 against the Toronto Raptors, to the east, on Wednesday. Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, Golden State star, have accumulated 95 points in Friday’s triumph.
