Warriors vs. Grizzlies score, takeaways: Stephen Curry, Jordan Poole lead Golden State to wild Game 1 win
If Game 1 was any indication of how the rest of the second-round series between the Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors will be
hen we're in for a treat. In a back-and-forth battle that came down to the very last possession of the game,
the Warriors were ultimately able to prevail with a 117-116 win to take a 1-0 lead.
The Warriors were able to win despite the fact that Draymond Green was ejected in the second quarter for a flagrant foul that the referees found
Without Green for the second half, Golden State had to dig deep, and was able to do just that. Jordan Poole led the Warriors with 31 points
nine assists and eight rebounds off the bench. Steph Curry had 24 points and four assists, and Andrew Wiggins added 17 points and eight rebounds.
On the other side, the Grizzlies got major contributions from their two young stars. Ja Morant led all scorers with 34 points along with 10 assists and nine rebounds
and Jaren Jackson Jr. had a double-double with 33 points and 10 rebounds. Ultimately, though, their combined production wasn't quite enough to propel Memphis to a Game 1 win.
