SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. (AP) Splash Brothers The Golden State Warriors are in their seventh Western Conference semifinal in ten seasons, and Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are now as healthy as they’ve been since reaching five consecutive.
That incredible run began in 2015. State Warriors rebounded from a 2-1 hole in the second round against Memphis, signaling a significant shift in direction for both organizations.
For the first time in seven years, Ja Morant has the Grizzlies back in the Western Conference semifinals. The talented guard leads a youthful, boisterous, and deep group that beat Brilliant State.
And Memphis is eager to see how it will do against the veteran-led, playoff-tested State Warriors.
“We think we’re one of the top backcourts in the league,” Morant added. “So, going into any contest, we’re putting ourselves ahead of everyone.” We’re pretty sure. “We put forth the effort.”
“We’ve been there, done that, and we’re attempting to return to the culmination and handle the open door before us,” Curry said before the State Warriors withdrew from San Francisco on Saturday.
Memphis Took a 2-1 Lead
The last time these two clubs looked in the playoffs, Memphis took a 2-1 lead. Following that, the Warriors recovered their stride and went on to win the series in six games, claiming the franchise’s first title in 40 years.
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr refers to this as a “role reversal,” with the State Warriors being the younger team at the time and now the more experienced bunch, with four key players remaining from that championship roster. And indeed, Kerr feels such playoff runs to aid in forming a team’s identity.
“Memphis is in a similar situation now, acquiring that experience, experiencing what it’s like to be on the road and behind in the fourth quarter. They’ve done an excellent job of progressing and getting to this level, and it now continues,” Kerr said. “The more you practice, the better.”
The Grizzlies are still in the game because they perform best in the last 12 minutes. They are the.
In the fourth quarter, they outscored Minnesota 198-136 to clinch the series with a 40-22 lead in Game 6. The Grizzlies finished with a 17-7 run. The Grizzlies not only lead the NBA in fourth-quarter scoring with 33 points this playoffs. But they also lead the league in third-quarter 3-point shooting with 45.3 percent.
State Warriors: Presence of Poole
However, Kerr believes Jordan Poole’s play-in games with the Grizzlies last year were an excellent introduction to the big stage, even if they were Jordan’s first five official playoff games.
In the State Warriors’ Game 5 triumph against the Nuggets, he started alongside Curry and Thompson. As a result of Poole’s 21 points per game, Golden State Warriors has another perimeter threat and matchup issue.
