Grizzlies run into Warriors in second home game

(TSX / STATS) -- The Memphis Grizzlies will test their new up-tempo style against the best defense the NBA had to offer last season when they attempt to open 2-0 at home at the expense of the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night.

The Grizzlies dazzled the home crowd with 103 points, up 2 1/2 from last year's 29th-in-the-league scoring average despite playing with three new starters in their 103-91 home-opening win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday.

Memphis took eight more shots, including two more 3-pointers, than last year's averages, both of which also ranked in the bottom 10 in the league.
