Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors are set to host and face Ja Morant’s Memphis Grizzlies in this year’s Christmas Day (h/t insider Marc Stein).
It will open up another showdown between two feisty opponents, as both clubs will go for a rematch following their heated second-round war last postseason. The Dubs prevailed with a 4-2 series win, but had a massive deduction entering the Conference Finals due to Gary Payton II’s fractured elbow via Dillon Brooks’ intense foul.
The matchup will gave the Grizzlies a chance to showcase their play for the first-time in its 27 years of existence.
It was earlier reported by Stein that the Los Angeles Lakers and the Dallas Mavericks will meet on the said special day also.
