Atomic has found a hot matchup for the Warriors' game in Memphis in tonight's NBA slate!
Atomic's NBA Thursday Best Bet #2: Warriors @ Grizzlies - 3/9
Golden State Warriors @ Memphis Grizzlies
Klay is over in his last 10 out of 13 games with Stephen Curry where he logs 32 or more minutes with no Wiggins I really am not concerned about him possibly getting fewer minutes. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing the #9 most 3 point attempts per game in the entire NBA & while they are a good defensive team they have spots you can attack we all know Brooks will have the Curry matchup leaving Bane/Jones who are not really positive defenders to then defend Klay who has been back to his normal form so this line doesn't feel too crazy for me if I am being honest. Klay is over in his L19/24 games where he logs 30 or more minutes & with Curry being in I really am not concerned as he should still get big minutes with Wiggins OUT.
The Grizzlies are top 6 in the NBA in pace while the Golden State Warriors are #1 so we should see a ton of possessions & this is a line Klay has managed to hit a ton of times when getting 32+ minutes in a game with a 1 point spread it should be close so we should see Klay play into the 4th quarter in a good matchup with the Grizzlies worst defenders on him in 2 games against the Grizzlies Klay had 24 & 24 however, he took 23 & 25 FGA which is literally more if not exactly his normal points line in this one so he really just needs to shoot average for us to have a shot here. The Grizzlies have been giving up the #6 most 3 point makes per game to shooting guards & Klay scores 60% of his PTS from 3 so this is just the perfect matchup as Memphis stops penetration & gives up 3s and he will have their worst defenders trying to defend him.
KLAY THOMPSON OVER 22.5 POINTS @ -115
