No. 8 seed and scoring title at stake as Warriors host Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors get a chance to determine their Western Conference play-in destinations Sunday afternoon when they go head-to-head in the regular-season finale in San Francisco.

The clubs enter the game with identical 38-33 records, tied for eighth in the West, meaning the winner will earn the No. 8 seed and a road game Wednesday against the seventh-seeded club (either the Los Angeles Lakers or Portland), while the loser will host 10th-place San Antonio as the No. 9 seed.

There's a significant advantage to finishing eighth. That team would have to lose twice in order to be denied entry into the eight-team main draw. The ninth-place team, on the other hand, must win twice in order to stay alive.
