This Western Conference Series goes back to the Oracle Arena in California as the Grizzlies and Warriors will both be attempting to take a lead in the series, while the Warriors appear to have been re-born again offensively.

If you Bet on NBA at an Online sportsbook and are a Warriors of Golden State your teams offense came back to life as S. Curry woke from his slump and scored 33 points of which he scored 21 points in the 1st half of that Game 4. To date this 2014-15 season the Warriors had not lost 3 straight games. With that win they showed they did not want to break that record. Now with the Game 5 moving back to California and the Warriors are anxious to display their offensive talent with their home base fans in Oakland where the Warriors in their last 22 home games they have won 21 of those games. Overall in their latest 10 games Golden State is 3 and 7 ATS and 8 and 2 SU.

For those that are Grizzlies of Memphis fans your team thought they had figured out the pattern of the Warriors offense, and then Golden State countered with a new defensive scheme and that seemed to limit the Grizzlies defense. The result was Memphis only scored 84 points in that Game 4 on only 36.9 % on field goals and made only 4 of 18 3-point attempts. The Grizzlies in game 4 did not have a team member that scored 20 points or more in that game, and the leading scorer was M. Gasol with 19 points in the game, 10 rebounds and some 6 assists. The only other player with double/ double figures in the game was Z. Randolph with 11 boards and scored 12 points. If the Grizzlies of Memphis are to win this Game 5 their defense will have to close guard against the Warriors and their outside 3-point shooters and keep them scoring the least that is possible, as they have had 3 wins and no losses when they have held the Warriors to under 100 points, and have lost 5 and won none when they have allowed the Warriors to break the 100 points in their games. During the month of May the Grizzlies have played 10 games to date, and ATS they have won 3 games and lost 7 games, and SU they won 2 games and have lost 8 games. The Predictions are that Golden State takes a 3-2 Series lead as the beat the Grizzlies 113-97 in this Game 5.
