The Grizzlies ‘broke the rules’ in Game 2 to win the Warriors as the list goes awry

MEMPHIS – Greater competition has turned into a fight. Competitive water has become a hostile geyser.

The stories, tied 1-1 and back at the Chase Center, have caught fire.

“There is a key in this league,” Steve Kerr said after the Golden State Warriors lost Game 2 106-101. “The system that the players follow. You don’t put a person’s season at risk. Get someone out and hit him on the head.

“Dillon Brooks broke the code.”

It took less than three minutes for the promised body to appear. The Grizzlies, down 1-0 in their home, were desperate. He never took a chance on the Warriors in Game 1, although Draymond Green was released for two fouls. Kerr has said in the past that his team will face a lot of playing tests.

“He’s following us,” Kerr said.

She was right. The Grizzlies ran the Detroit Pistons Bad Boys in the late 1980s and disrupted the game from the start.

By 2:52 after the first quarter, Gary Payton II went to bed and Memphis guard Brooks surrounded him on the head and heard him circling the floor, where he slept for several minutes. The repetition of the incident shocked the Memphis team by surprise.

Official Scott Foster quickly dominated 2 and brought Brooks out of the game. Contrary to Green’s claims two days earlier, there was no gray area in the election.

“It was disgusting,” Kerr said bluntly.

A few seconds later, Green was lying on his face while the game continued with his elbow in front of his face. The crowd rained on him as he slept, and he continued when he woke up, his face covered with blood, and went to the storeroom. On the way, Green turned the crowd of two birds.

“Do you insult a man who is on his knees and has blood on his face?” Green said after the game, with his eye about to swell. “You must be upset. He’s been so bad, I could be too bad.”

The news is getting worse. Three starters missed the first three minutes of Game 2, one ejection, two injuries. Minutes later, Stephen Curry had blood on his hands. The bodies are hitting the ground. Players fall.

The energy in the building was desperate, angry. Green was severely criticized in both the pronunciation and the play.

“He likes to play bad,” Kerr said in the past.

Now there is a bad side, as Brooks will learn when he arrives at the Chase Center. That would not be the case if Brooks received a suspension from the league in addition to the ejection.

This has been a growing competition. Memphis has been a bad matchup for the Warriors and knocked them out of the playoffs last year. This season, the Grizzlies finished ahead of the Warriors, and as you know to come, this series will be a competitive, physical and waste-filled one.

There has been a cry. Jaren Jackson Jr. was revealed at the end of the Warriors’ winning season by posting a picture of Kevon Looney being suspended with the insulting words, “Strong in numbers.” Brandon Clarke, the player made a mistake when Green was called up for two games in 1 game, talked about Green after the game. The Grizzlies are full of swagger and I think their time has come.

Probably so. Ja Morant is very high, and his 47 – 18 points in the fourth quarter – Tuesday night was more than what Klay Thompson and Curry had, together. There is a vibe and power of this band that reminisce about the early days of the Warriors line.
