I simply cannot wait for this series. Watching the GS death lineup of Curry, Poole, Thompson, Wiggins, and Green vs this fast young Griz squad is going to be great basketball. I am usually not too aggressive in betting on game 1 of a series, but I love this spot for Draymond Green to set up open teammates.
Dray had a solid series vs Denver in the passing department. He had at least 6 assists in every game and had games of 9 and 10. He was 4th in the league in potential assists in round 1 at 14.6 a game, and I think that number continues to climb in this series. With Curry back to a full workload and the emergence of Poole, Dray is surrounded by the greatest shooting I could imagine. I think that bodes well against this fast paced Grizzlies team. Memphis runs at the third fastest pace in the league so it will create more opportunities for Draymond to rack up assists. Draymond has faced the Griz 2 times this season and had 7 assists and 9 assists. That was before his minutes increased for the playoffs, and prior to the formation of this ridiculous lineup Golden State is throwing out. At +118, I really love the value for Dray to get 8 or more assists.
