The best basketball going on right now is between the Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies. A seeming culmination of a year of excellent play in the Western Conference, the teams’ opposing styles have sparked a lot of debate about the state of the game.
It’s not the first time it’s happened: On the heels of Steph Curry’s emotionally exhausting MVP reception, the Golden State Warriors laid an egg. Dropping Game 2 of their second-round series with the Memphis Grizzlies, 97-90, they looked flummoxed. It was Golden State’s first home loss since the Chicago Bulls beat them there in January.
The Memphis Grizzlies announced that starting point guard Mike Conley underwent successful surgery Monday to repair a facial fracture, though how much time he'll miss during the team's playoff run has yet to be determined.
