But a week later, whaddaya know, the Grizz sold off Rudy to get under the cap and away from a luxury tax. With that move the Grizz also left very little hope in that locker room.
Golden St. can't wait to get back on the court and get the nasty taste out of their mouth. This game is completely different from the first two meetings. Golden St. now will have Bogut down low to help and, of course, the Grizz are minus Rudy. I will put my faith in this Mark Jackson led squad in this game. This line of -3 looks completely wrong to me, but what would the oddsmakers do? Make GSW a favorite in Memphis? Noooo. Spotting this hungry Warrior team 3 points has got thinking I could be falling for the trap. Then so be it. GSW ML
This is EXACTLY what I have been thinking.
SInce Rudy left they have averaged 89 points per game and allowed 95 points.
In their last 4 games they have allowed opponents to shoot 49%.
This is the perfect spot to back the Warriors.
