Time running out on Memphis

Golden State leads by 17 with 9 minutes left. If the Grizzlies want to make a contest out of this, some 3-pointers would be a place to start. They've only made 2 compared to GS's 11. Watch live

Ezeli has room to grow on making quick outlet passes and general defensive awareness, but he's progressing into a nice player

Foul trouble for Warriors

Andrew Bogut and Draymond Green each have four fouls late in the third. This might be the only thing that can get Memphis back into the game.

Warriors pulling away from Memphis

Blatt: I'm concerned about layoff

By sweeping the Celtics, the Cavs have eight days off before Game 1 against the Bulls on Monday. Cavaliers coach David Blatt said: "it's a concern, and I'd be lying if I said it wasn't because that's a long time, and our opponent obviously played games during that time."

Beal's 28 points sparks Game 1 win

Grizzlies need to feed Z-Bo

Memphis' most useful offense in the first half was getting the ball to Zach Randolph. He finished the half with 16 points (7-for-9), and the team shot 12-for-14 on possessions where he got the first touch.

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 combined for 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
