Warriors vs. Grizzlies live score, updates, highlights from 2021 NBA play-in tournament

If contrasting styles make for great fights, then Friday night’s play-in game between the Grizzlies and Warriors should be a doozy.

Memphis is known for its interior attack, as it led the NBA in both points in the paint per game (55.8) and second-chance points per game (15.0). Grizzlies guard Ja Morant is relentless in his assaults on the rim, and center Jonas Valanciunas has been pushing around opposing big men all season long.

Golden State, on the other hand, enjoys launching from deep. The Warriors finished in the top five in both 3-point field goals made (14.6) and attempted (38.7) per game. That’s no surprise considering leading scorer Stephen Curry is the greatest shooter in NBA history. 

Which team will earn the right to face the top-seeded Jazz in the first round of the 2021 NBA playoffs?
