    Warriors in 6. Morant will play better this series and are more equipped to guard the splash trio

    Warriors in a hard 6. Closer to 7 than 5.

    Memphis' physicality and toughness will push Golden State to the limit.

    I am also going with Warriors in 6. They have two big weaknesses, turnovers and rebounding. Memphis can exploit both.

    However in the end i think the Warriors experience will make the difference.

    There's literally no point watching this apart from Morant highlights here and there. Steph is gonna be shimmying and carrying on like it's his own world against practically rookie comp.

    Wolves could've swept if they knew how to close.

    Warriors in 4

    The Grizz are a tough, physical team and the Warriors have problems with them. (Over last 3 years, Grizz have a 6-4 record against Warriors in regular season).

    The critical factor will not be GP2's defense on Morant. Or even rebounds and turnovers.

    It's going to be about matching the Grizzlie's physicality. The way to do that on offense is team play, especially screens.

    The Warriors fluid motion offense is brought to a halt by Memphis in-your-face defense, esp. Morant and Brooks. If the Warriors are going to play like a bunch of fairies and spectators on offense (see Otto Porter; or formerly KD), they will lose. Only through regular screening on and off the ball will the Warriors have a chance. That means Looney, Draymond, and contributions by Wiggins and the bench. I want to see Poole and Klay getting into the habit as well (just as Steph screens for others).

    Without this element, Memphis will be hounding GSW into turnover after turnover, just like the regular season- where Memphis won 3-1. It's NOT about this injury or that injury. That's too tactical. Regardless of who's on the court for the Warriors, if they are scrambling on offense, scurrying away from Memphis' physicality, they WILL lose.

    Warriors should sweep these guys. They have 4 players better than Grizzlies best player. This series shouldn't be close.

    Grizzlies plays better than sum of their individual talent. This series will be close. But Warriors in 6.

    In the first round Bane attempted 9 3s per game shooting 48%. He averaged 23 ppg with a 67% TS. Wow
