While the Warriors struggled with turnovers, Memphis rookie Ziaire Williams clicked alongside Ja Morant to help the Grizzlies quickly jump out to an 18 point advantage. However, the Warriors were able to survive the early storm with a fiery comeback in the third quarter.
Steph Curry fueled Golden State’s comeback with 13 points on 4-of-7 shooting from the field and a pair of triples in the third quarter alone.
Behind Curry, the Warriors shot 61.1% (11-of-18) from the field and 75% (6-of-8) from long distance. When the fourth quarter started, the Warriors held a three-point lead against the home team.
After a back and forth tilt in the final frame, the Grizzlies were able to close out the Warriors. While Morant and Tyus Jones hit clutch buckets, the Warriors’ offense went cold, scoring only 18 points in the fourth quarter.
Curry’s point guard battle against Morant lived up to the hype. The young Memphis point guard tallied 29 points on 11-of-23 shooting from the field with eight assists and five rebounds in 37 minutes to hand the Warriors a 116-108 loss.
Curry finished the game with his ninth-career triple-double, recording 27 points on 8-of-21 from the field with 10 boards, 10 assists and two steals in 39 minutes.
