Game Preview: Warriors at Grizzlies - 4/3/12
  • LAST TIME OUT
    The Warriors threatened a fourth-quarter comeback but could not make enough stops down the stretch in Sundays 120-112 loss to the Lakers in Los Angeles. David Lee had 27 points, seven assists and six rebounds and Richard Jefferson and Nate Robinson helped cut a 15-point second-half deficit down to one, as they combined for 33 points off the bench. The Warriors were handled on the boards 50-29, but they did match a franchise low with five turnovers. FULL GAME RECAP


  • WARRIORS VS. GRIZZLIES
    The Warriors will take on the Grizzlies for the fourth and final time this year on Tuesday. Golden State has played Memphis close this season, falling in two of the three losses by just one point. The Warriors will be playing in the second matchup of a four-game roadtrip while the Grizzlies will find themselves in the middle of a back-to-back-to-back against Western Conference foes.


  • ROOKIE BACKCOURT BOOST
    Four of the Warriors last five matchups have seen Rookies Charles Jenkins and Klay Thompson together in the starting lineup. During those games the two have averaged a combined 33 points per game on 48 percent shooting. With this boost, Golden State has become the second team in the league (Cleveland) to have two rookies ranked among the top 10 in the NBA Rookie Ladder (Thompson 2, Jenkins 10).


  • DIMES FROM DAVID
    David Lee continued to facilitate well in Sundays loss, dishing seven assists. Lee ranks fifth among power forwards in assists per game (2.8), trailing Josh Smith (3.9), Pau Gasol (3.4), Blake Griffin (3.0) and Kevin Garnett (2.9).


  • 3-BALL PROFICIENCY
    The Warriors currently rank second in the league in 3-point shooting percentage (.387), narrowly trailing the Spurs (.389). With the addition of Richard Jefferson (.420), Golden State now has four of the top 20 distance-shooters in the league (Stephen Curry .455, Brandon Rush .442 and Klay Thompson .421).
