Warriors vs. Grizzlies live stream: How to watch NBA game online, on TV

The Warriors (9-31) look to snap a seven-game losing streak Sunday as they face the young and surprising Memphis Grizzlies (17-22). 

Led by star rookie Ja Morant, the Grizzlies have shocked many and enter Sunday as the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference. The Dubs, however, have the worst record in the West. 

Golden State should get a boost, though. D'Angelo Russell, who last played Dec. 28, 2019, is expected to return from his right shoulder contusion. The 23-year-old is averaging a career-high 23.2 points per game this season.

The Warriors, however, will be without guards Damion Lee and Ky Bowman. Lee is out of NBA service days as a two-way player and won't suit up again until he finalizes his NBA deal. Bowman has his two-way days soon coming to an end.

Warriors takeaways: What we learned in 110-102 dud loss vs. Grizzlies

Warriors takeaways: What we learned in 110-102 dud loss vs. Grizzlies


SAN FRANCISCO -- The Warriors entered Chase Center on Monday seeking the modest goal of winning consecutive games for the first time this season.

They failed, with a hail of missed shots and a flurry of turnovers sending them to a 110-102 loss to a Grizzlies team that had lost nine of its last 10 games.

The Warriors fell behind early, briefly went ahead in the third quarter and spent the fourth quarter trying to mount a comeback they couldn’t quite complete.

Here are three takeaways from a game in which the Warriors shot 37.6 percent and were picked apart on defense in the second half:

Morant routs Paschall in battle of rookies

Each team came into the game with a strong Rookie of the Year candidate, forward Eric Paschall for the Warriors and guard Ja Morant for the Grizzlies.

Morant, who had missed the last four games with back spasms, was better on this night and it was not close.

Paschall scored only five points, 12 below his average, while shooting 2-of-10 from the field and 0-of-2 from beyond the arc. He grabbed two rebounds and finished minus-14 over 22 minutes.

Morant practically willed the Grizzlies to victory, scoring 26 points on 8-of-14 shooting, including 3-of-5 from deep and 7-of-8 from the line. He added seven assists and two rebounds, playing 29 minutes.

Morant made a couple dazzling plays, including a soaring dunk to give Memphis a 108-100 lead with 1:19 to play, effectively closing out the Warriors.

Draymond cranks up the offense

Though Draymond Green’s reputation for being a highly-effective defender lives on, he often is subjected to critiques about his scoring ability.

It’s not that he can’t. It’s that he usually doesn’t and hasn’t had to -- until now.

Presumably taking note of the team’s scoring challenges, Green immediately turned up his aggression on offense, scoring a team-high 14 first-half points in 16 minutes. Green, along with veteran guard Alec Burks (11 points), kept the offense from falling flat in the first half.

Green totaled 16 points, tying a season-high, shooting 6-of-13 from the field and 1-of-3 from deep.

The Warriors are a different team when Green is a scoring threat. It appears he is attempting to better establish that on a roster that needs it.

Oh, those turnovers

Coach Steve Kerr hasn’t done much ranting about turnovers, a subject he often harped on over the last five seasons. Perhaps because of the youth and relative shared inexperience of his roster.

That’s about to change.

The turnovers are becoming almost routine. After rarely coming close to the 20-turnover mark in the first 20 games, the Warriors are averaging 19.0 over the last five. They committed 15 Monday night.

Worst of all, most of the turnovers were of the live-ball variety. The Grizzlies turned those 15 turnovers into 22 points.

That’s what stings most of all, seeing those giveaways turn into easy points the other way. The Warriors’ last five opponents, including Memphis, averaged 21.0 points off turnovers.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The long, long injury list that accompanied the Warriors across the country for much of the past few weeks has been whittled to a mere three.

And two of the unavailable players, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, are not coming back anytime soon.

The return of second-year guard Jacob Evans III will give the Warriors 12 players Monday night, when they face the Memphis Grizzlies at Chase Center. Pregame coverage on NBC Sports Bay Area begins at 6:30, with tip-off scheduled for 7:40.

The Warriors (5-19) are seeking consecutive victories for the first time this season. Not since 2000-01 have they gone so deep into a season without winning back-to-back games.

The Grizzlies (6-16), who won three in a row in mid-November but since have lost nine of 10 -- including to the Warriors on Nov. 19 in Memphis -- will get a boost from the return of flashy rookie point guard Ja Morant.

Coach Steve Kerr finally has enough available players to form an actual rotation based on merit rather than need ... The return of Evans gives the Warriors another option at PG, along with starter D’Angelo Russell and additional backup Ky Bowman. Evans missed 21 games with left adductor strain ... Paschall has scored in double figures in each of the last 13 games. The last Warriors rookie to do so was Thompson in 2012 ... With three rookies -- SG Jordan Poole, Bowman and Paschall -- the Warriors lead the league in rookie scoring at 33.1 ppg ... The Warriors have won the last five home games against the Grizzlies and eight of the last 10 overall.

Morant has missed the last four games with back spasms. Both his activity level and minutes total and will be monitored closely. His return sends Tyus Jones back to reserve status ... Clarke, who spent two seasons at San Jose State before transferring to Gonzaga, has missed the last three games. The rookie is having a fabulous season, averaging 11.8 ppg off the bench on 63.0-percent shooting from the field ... Valanciunas has scored in double figures 17 times, including three occasions with at least 20 points. He’s had three 20-10 games in the last two weeks and will be a tough physical matchup for any Warriors big man ... The Grizzlies lead the league in paint points, averaging 54.2 per game ... If neither Crowder nor Anderson is available, Solomon Hill could get the start at SF ... Though Iguodala officially is on the roster, he has yet play or travel with the team ... Memphis is 0-5 against Pacific Division opponents.
