Watch live online as the Golden State Warriors look to close out the Memphis Grizzlies in Game Six of their NBA Western Conference semifinal series — a series that was never expected to reach six games in the first place. But after stumbling in Games Two and Three, Golden State regrouped to take Memphis to the brink of elimination.

If Golden State is going to clinch the series tonight, they’ll have to do it on the road as they travel to the FedEx Forum in Memphis where the Grizzlies will play host.
Each team has won one game on its opponent’s home court so far in the series, with Memphis taking Game two in Oakland by a 97-90 score, and Golden State winning a blowout on the Grizzlies’ home court in Game Four, 101-84.
The game starts at 9:30 Eastern Time, 6:30 Pacific today, Friday, May 15.
Golden State finished the regular season with the NBA’s best record at 67-15, and then swept the New Orleans Pelicans four straight in their first round playoff series. Memphis posted a solid 55-27 regular season record, good enough to secure the sixth seed in the Western Conference playoff bracket. The Grizzlies won their first-round playoff series 4-1 over the Portland Trail Blazers.
The Grizzlies may receive a boost from the projected return of guard Tony Allen, their most energetic defender, who was forced to sit on the bench in streetclothes for Game Five with a left hamstring problem — the same injury that kept the 33-year-old Allen out of the last nine regular season games for Memphis.
“It’s tough to still have to deal with this right now,” Allen told ESPN. “But it’s definitely not something I’m trying to advertise. I’ve just got to fight through it.”
Allen has said that he expects to fight through it in Game Six and get back on the floor. But what he will be able to provide on defense for the Grizzlies with his injury remains a big question mark.
“They’re moving the ball. They’re getting a lot more penetration. Everybody,” Grizzlies guard Mike Conley said after the Game Five defeat. “When you do that, it’s always tough to stop.”
