    I imagine they want the other series time to catch up in case SA/LAC goes to 7 games. In the next round, you don't want one team in game 1 while the other is in game 3 or 4.

    Too bad about Conley. Grizzlies will be lucky to win one game.

    No Conley so Warriors sweep. Hell even with Conley, Warriors sweep.

    Another midnight series, I guess I'll be looking at the highlights the next morning. Seriously. Who can stay up to watch these games.

    Yeah, I woke up at 32 second mark of the 4th quarter. I'm so tired when I get home that it's a real struggle. :(

    Man. People say that Memphis doesn't have a chance without Conley and I honestly see that these guys are committed to making noise. Aldridge and Brook Lopez are excellent offensive options in the post and Zbo and Gasol made mincemeat out of them.

    If Allen/Lee can shut down the likes of Klay with driving lanes completely shut down with Zbo and Gasol I think that Memphis shouldn't be counted out immediately.

    Even if Curry gets what he wants I think you can live with it as long as the others do what they've been doing and if the Memphian bench steps up. This will be an exciting series

    You have terrible analysis ability or an incredible bias toward Golden State.

    You hardly say anything good about the Rockets too. Go to the Golden State Warrior forum dude.

    Grizzlies in 6!

    Calling a Game 1 upset, then Grizzlies grind them out at home!

    The playoffs are a much different animal. The grizzlies can beat the warriors if they can force Golden State into contested 3 point shots.

    The only team I've ever seen that was able to neutralize the grizz defense was the spurs 2 years ago.

    Golden State has GREAT 3 point shooters, but they rely on those guys to be all world far too often, and their ball movement is nowhere near what the Spurs ball movement has been.

    Don't get me wrong, I do fear golden state, but at the same time, I realize that golden state hasn't seen the kind of motivation this grizzlies team is going to play with.

    Why does everyone assume Conley will be out the whole series? I think he misses one or two games max.

    Call me crazy but I don't think Conley is going to miss 1 game of this series. The guy is a warrior and his eye will be healed by sunday. What else would prevent him from playing?

    he's going to play.
