Warriors Finally Getting Tested

The Golden State Warriors sailed through the regular season, finished with the best record in the NBA, have the league MVP in Stephen Curry and then they rolled over New Orleans in the first round. The Warriors were not tested during the regular season but they are now getting a real test against the Memphis Grizzlies. History says that teams as good as the Warriors were during the regular season should go on and win the NBA title as only two teams in NBA history that finished with a winning percentage equal or higher to the Warriors didn’t win the title.

Grizzlies Continue to be Underrated

The Memphis Grizzlies didn’t get much respect before this series and they still are not getting much. This is a Memphis team that has been together since 2009 and had success. In the last four seasons the Grizzlies have won at least 50 games and they reached the Western Conference Finals two years ago. The Grizzlies have played excellent defense in this series as Tony Allen continues to cause Curry and Klay Thompson trouble. And the Grizzlies were the 2nd best team in the NBA on defense this season as they allowed 95 points per game.
