Meanwhile, the Grizzlies will try to put the brakes on a three-game skid when they wrap up their road trip on Saturday. The Grizzlies fell to 0-2 so far on the trek and 4-27 as the visitor this season following Wednesday's 108-86 setback to the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center.
Juan Navarro had 16 points and seven boards, while Mike Miller added 12 points and nine rebounds for the Grizzlies, who have lost 10 of 11 overall and 16 straight on the road. Hakim Warrick and Brian Cardinal scored 12 points apiece for Memphis.
Memphis' last road victory was on January 2 at Indiana. In injury news for the Grizzlies, center Darko Milicic (foot) is questionable for Saturday's game.
Saturday's matchup between Memphis and Golden State is the third of four meetings this season. The Warriors are scheduled to visit the Grizzlies at FedExForum on April 4.
Golden State has won five straight after losing the last five matchups with Memphis, which has lost three in a row at Oakland.
