The NBA Playoffs are starting to heat up, with the four top teams in the Eastern and Western conferences vying for a place in the 2022 NBA Finals.

All four series are now underway, with Boston taking on Milwaukee and Miami facing off against Philadelphia in the East, whilst the Phoenix Suns have taken an early lead in their series against the Dallas Mavericks.

The Golden State Warriors will be hoping that they can qualify for the NBA Finals for the first time since 2019, but they will have to navigate their way past Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies if they are to do so.

The Grizzlies have quietly gone about their business this season, with their young core defying all expectations to leave them with a real shot of making the Western Finals.

Memphis has the home-court advantage in the series, which could be crucial should we see a Game 7. However, we feel this could be a stretch too far for Morant & co.

The Grizzlies will make it tough for the Warriors, but Golden State should come out on top.
