It is enough to look at the statistics of the encounter to understand the extent of the shipwreck. Grizzlies scored 77 points in the first half, leading by 27 points at halftime and dominating the scoreboard with a dramatic difference of 55 points in the third quarter.

The record for the biggest difference at the end of an NBA playoff game is 58 points, and tonight it looks like the Grizzlies could have easily broken that mark if they hadn’t relaxed after the win had already clinched.


The Warriors ‘long faces were in stark contrast to the spectacle of some spectacular Grizzlies who, in the first three quarters (the last quarter was no longer worth 119-67), made 17 of 34 triplets and managed 29 points from their opponents’ 20 turnovers.

There was a party for the second trimester Memphis (39-22) but the third was already apotheosis (42-17). From rebounding to paint control to the intensity of defense under their command in every aspect of the game, the Grizzlies had seven players above 10 points.

Stephen Curry He was on 14 points (4 out of 10 shooting), Drymond Green I made 5 points and lost 5 balls and Jordan Pool I lost 4 balls and got only 3 points (1 shoot out of 6).

Mexican-American Juan Toscano-Anderson He went to court in the third quarter, when the game was already settled, and added 5 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists and a block in the 16th minute.

The first room was the only one that had history. Thompson showed he was good at the shot and Curry made two triple chains, but Jackson Jr. got 10 points and was the leader of some extremely brave Grizzlies that finished the first quarter 9-0 against the Warriors’ weak defense (38) -3) 28).

With a complete difference in intensity, speed and fury in each game, the Grizzlies drew 14-0 against a Komatos Warriors (77-50) shortly before half time.
