The Warriors needed this win, in order to keep their hold on the 8th spot. The next two games they face are against the top two teams in the west. The Dubs are bound to face the Jazz and the Suns on back-to-back nights. If the Warriors can manage to split the games and beat the Grizzlies, they should be able to stay on the 8th seed to end their season.
Stephen Curry reacts to a possible Lakers-Warriors play-in matchup
There are around four to five games left to end the regular season. The placement for the playoffs and play-in games is still hanging in the balance. The West has a two-game margin between the 5th seeded Mavericks and the 7th seeded Lakers. Similarly, there is a half-game difference between the 8th seeded Warriors and the 9th seeded Grizzlies.
According to current positions, the first play-in game between the 7th and 8th seed for the 7th spot would end up as a Lakers-Warriors match. There is a lot of anticipation for the same as well. The defending champions have been in a slump as of late, while the Warriors are on a hot streak. When Steph Curry was asked to share his thoughts on the same, he replied by giving a hilarious reaction instead.

If the Steph Curry-led Warriors do face the injured defending champions, the result would be an incredible game. Steph Curry and the form he is in, he would only continue to add to the Lakers’ woes. In my opinion, if the Warriors do end up facing the Lakers, they do have the potential to cause a major upset.
