Grizzlies vs. Warriors NBA Prediction
The second game of ESPN’s NBA double header on Sunday takes place in San Francisco where the Warriors are laying five points to the visiting Grizzlies at 3:30 p.m. ET. Will Golden State cover that number or is there a better option for bettors?
533 Memphis Grizzlies (+5) at 534 Golden State Warriors (-5); o/u 230
3:30 p.m. ET, Sunday, May 16, 2021
Venue: Chase Center, San Francisco, CA
Memphis Grizzlies DFS Spin
Grayson Allen (left abdominal strain) will not play in Sunday's game against the Warriors. Allen has been sidelined for just over a week now, and the earliest that he will be able to play is the Grizzlies' play-in tournament game. His absence means more minutes for Desmond Bane and De'Anthony Melton, with the former filling in as a starter. Melton tends to provide a little more in the way of all-around fantasy/DFS value, but don't sleep in Bane, especially if there's a need for 3-pointers.
Golden State Warriors DFS Spin
Draymond Green (rest) has been ruled out for Friday’s game vs. New Orleans.Juan Toscano-Anderson figures to earn heavy minutes as a starter tonight, so he could be someone to consider as a streamer or DFS target. We would expect to see Green back in action for Sunday’s season-finale vs. Memphis, though.
