Still seems like best-case scenario for potential Conley return would be Game3 Saturday when series shifts to Memphis, given all factors.

Grizzlies missing Mike Conley

Memphis' PG play in the first half has been underwhelming. Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes have just 5 points and 3 assists on 2-for-6 shooting. Conley is not playing due to injury (facial fractures).

Half: Warriors 61, Grizzlies 52

Golden State has been mythodical on offense (61.5% shooting) in the first half, with the big difference being made 3-pointers. The Warriors have 8 compared to the Grizz's 2. Follow live

Green giving Warriors offensive boost

Draymond Green always brings it on the defensive side, but when he's clicking on offense, Golden State is scary. He's got 11 points (3-for-5 from 3) in the first half. Watch live

Warriors' Curry sets up Green for 3

It started with a nice crossover and a behind-the-back pass, and it ended with Draymond Green knocking down a 3-pointer.


Michael Wallace @WallaceNBA_ESPN

Managing Marc & Zach's minutes early so they've got enough in tank for 4th is key. Problem is Memphis can't afford to go long w/o them now.

Grizz haven't ceded any great 3-point looks to Curry so far. Wouldn't say they played good D, but that's one thing they accomplished
