Warriors whip Grizzlies 98-78, take 3-2 series lead
OAKLAND- Stephen Curry turned in an MVP-worthy performance, Klay Thompson snapped out of his shooting funk and the Golden State Warriors rolled past the Memphis Grizzlies 98-78 on Wednesday night to take a 3-2 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series.
Curry scored 18 points on six 3-pointers and added a career-playoff high six steals to go with seven rebounds and five assists. Thompson scored 21 points, and Harrison Barnes had 14 as the Warriors won their second straight game in impressive fashion.
Golden State can close out the Grizzlies in Game 6 on Friday night in Memphis.
With defensive stopper Tony Allen sidelined with a left hamstring injury, the Grizzlies struggled to contain Golden State's streaky shooters. The Warriors made 14 of 30 shots from 3-point range, while Memphis made just four of 15 from long distance.
