Golden State Warriors’ Offense Too Much For Memphis Grizzlies’ Defense

Justin Ford – USA TODAY Sports

Two extreme powerhouses clashed today at the FedEx Forum as the Golden State Warriors visited the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies are known for their defense but the absence of Marc Gasol is proving to be key for the squad. The Warriors, on the other hand, had all their elite shooters on the floor so it’s no surprise that Golden State ended up coming out on top with a 108-82 score.

The Warriors had an accurate night from all areas of the field, shooting 50 percent from the field, 44 percent from beyond the arc and over 80 percent from the free throw line. The offense was headlined by sharpshooter Klay Thompson who ended with 30 points and was well-seconded by Stephen Curry (22 pts, 15 assists) and David Lee (23 pts and 11 rebounds).

The Warriors seem to be a very dangerous team this season on both ends of the court. Last year they proved that they can score with the best in the league and they have added defense with the arrival of Andre Iguodala — who is currently injured — and a healthy Andrew Bogut. The maduration process of both Thompson and Harrison Barnes and the leadership of Stephen Curry rounds up a very solid rotation that will compete come playoff time.

Today they defeated the Grizzlies and they have shown they are able to matchup with the best teams in the league. If they can keep this up throughout the regular season, there’s little doubt that the Warriors will be a tough team down the stretch.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

NBA fans and media alike were incredibly excited for the first meeting of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season, and many expected an uber-competitive game to take place on Monday night. Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.

Curry Shows Off With Half-Court Shot

It seems like Golden State Warriors PG Stephen Curry does something otherworldly on a daily basis nowadays. Last night against the Indiana Pacers, Curry casually threw up a half-court shot as time expired in the first-half, and it went in because of course it did.
