The Warriors have captured a 3-1 lead in Western Conference semifinal series.
The Memphis Grizzlies’ backs are against the wall, and they will have to win three games in a row in order to advance to the Western Conference finals to play either Phoenix or Dallas.
Wednesday night’s Game #5 will be played locally at FedEx Forum in Memphis, but the Grizzlies (if they win) will need to return to San Francisco for a potetial Game #6 before coming back home for Game #7, if necessary.
The Grizzlies’ 2022 postseason woes have spelled bad news for local Tennessee online sports bettors who have backed their favorite NBA team.
Just last week, Memphis appeared to be on the right track following a breakout Game #2 performance by guard Ja Morant. But now, fans and sports bettors who are counting on the Grizzlies to make the conference finals must hope for three consecutive playoff victories.

Tennessee Volunteers No Longer Consensus #1 Collegiate Baseball Team
The Vols have been uprooted as the #1 collegiate baseball team in the country in at least one poll this week. Despite Tennessee’s Division I leading 43-6 record (and single season home run record that keeps increasing with every game), the club is only 4-3 in their last seven outings.
This has placed the 38-9 Oregon State Beavers at #1 according to Baseball America.
Tennessee has a three game series coming up this weekend against their SEC rival Georgia Bulldogs. Game 1 of the series will be Thursday night at Lindsey Nelson Stadium in Knoxville. Games 2 and 3 will be played – weather permitting – on Friday and Saturday respectively.
The Volunteers will end their 2022 regular season in Starkville against last year’s championship team, Mississippi State Bulldogs. They will then head to Hoover Met Stadium in Alabama for the SEC tournament later this month. If Tennessee “wins out” for their final 7 regular season games, they would enter the postseason with 50 wins.
Vanderbilt also has an important series coming up this weekend, as they will face the #4 ranked Arkansas Razorbacks in Fayetteville.
