Warriors Vs. Grizzlies Preview: W's Look To End Grizz's Winning Streak

As the Golden State Warriors head back to Oracle Arena after their longest road trip of the season, the Memphis Grizzlies come to town as one of the hottest teams in the league, looking to extend their five game winning streak Wednesday evening.

Golden State (15-20) returns to Oakland after going 3-3 on their recent trip that concluded with a 120-100 victory over the Wizards. Golden State shot 54.2 percent from the field in that game, including a season-best 65.2 percent (15 of 23) from 3-point range in its highest-scoring game of 2011-12. They shot an abismal 39.6 percent during the first five games of the roadie.

The W's will have to put together a similar performance tonight if they want to take out the Grizzlies (22-15), who haven't lost to Golden State since November of 2010. Look for the matchup with Marc Gasol tonight, and how Mark Jackson will decide to defend him. Dominic McGuire could see a lot of minutes again trying to shut him down.

Tip off is set for 7:30 pm PT with coverage on CSN Bay Area.
