As all expected from the series, the Warriors and Grizzlies are in a close game yet again. With the season on the line for the Grizzlies, they need all the help they can get from their players. While players like Dillon Brooks and Desmond Bane are keeping them in the game, they have the most unexpected help they could help. The Warriors themselves are helping out Memphis as they go on a turnover barrage in Game 6. But they still managed to come out on top.

The tension between Memphis and the Warriors has been clear through the past few seasons. They have collided multiple times and got the best out of each other. Likewise, today is no different. Both the teams are going bucket for bucket in a spectacle of a matchup. But the Warriors may see themselves slip up as they can’t seem to keep the ball to themselves.

Warriors throwing the game away?

The Game 6 contest has been as close as it can get between these two sides. While the Warriors are holding the upper hand at home, they are walking on a thin line. The Warriors have been extremely irresponsible with keeping the ball in possession. While the Grizzlies have notched up just 6 turnovers so far, the Warriors have nearly tripled their tally.

The Bay have turned the ball over a huge 16 times already as they carelessly give away points to allow the Grizzlies to inch closer into the game. However, despite their mammoth tally, the Grizzlies have only scored 18 points from turnovers.

Klay Thompson came alive in Game 6 scoring 30 points to go with 8 rebounds and 3 blocks. Stephen Curry has also let his scoring do the talking with 29 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 blocks to his name. Moreover, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins have combined for 32 points in a series-deciding Game 6 that helped the Warriors end the series at home.

However, the Grizzlies fought up until the end. Dillon Brooks has done a fantastic job of scoring tonight compiling 30 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 steals. In addition, Desmond Bane has continued to be impressive through these playoffs with 25 points and 7 rebounds on 9-15 shooting. But the rest of the Grizzlies have failed to generate anything as their season was cut short.
