NBA - US Sports: Grizzlies set up Dubs date

Memphis Grizzlies will face Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference semi-finals after completing a 4-2 series win over Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday.

The first game of the best-of-seven series will take place in Memphis on Sunday and the Grizzlies can be backed at 11/10 to win in the Money Line, while Golden State are priced at 10/13.

Memphis fightback

Minnesota held a 13-point lead in the third quarter on Friday but Memphis fought back to claim a 114-106 win at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

Desmond Bane and Dillon Brooks were the joint top-scorers for Memphis with 23 points each as they rallied to see off the Timberwolves, despite Anthony Edwards leading the game in scoring with 30 points for the hosts.

Memphis star Ja Morant had a difficult night as he was limited to 17 points on 4-for-14 shooting, although he did manage eight rebounds and a game-high 11 assist.

It has been a gruelling series for both teams involved and was arguably the most competitive of the first round match-ups, and Morant was delighted to finally get over the line on Friday.

'Battle'

"Physically, mentally, this series was a battle," said Morant postgame, via USA Today. "Obviously, the wins were pretty ugly outside of Game 2, but we got it done."

Memphis have a quick turnaround as they are back in action against the Dubs on Sunday, although they do have home advantage for the first two games of that series.

Golden State were last in action on Wednesday as they secured a 4-1 first round series win over Denver Nuggets.
