“Get the F**K Out of Here”: Warriors Coach Steve Kerr Furious on the Sidelines After Grizzlies Suffer Early Ejection in Game 2

Published 05/04/2022, 12:08 AM EDT

Memphis Grizzlies guard Dillon Brooks took less than three minutes to get ejected from Memphis-Warriors Game 2 after committing a flagrant-2 foul on Golden State Warriors’ Gary Payton II. 

On a fastbreak, Payton had an open route to the basket as he went up for a layup. With Brooks trailing and wanting to prevent him from converting, he swung his hand and caught Payton in the head. The guard hit the floor hard and grabbed his left arm in pain with 9:08 left in the first quarter. The officials went to the monitor to review the play and called Brooks for a flagrant-2, which resulted in his immediate ejection. Payton returned to the locker room to have his left elbow X-rayed and the Warriors later said he would not return.

Draymond also went down shortly after the whole incident and returned to the locker room after taking an elbow to the face. However, the veteran forward returned to the game shortly after getting stitched up. Green, who was tossed in game one for a flagrant-2, flipped his middle fingers to the Memphis fans as he went to the locker room.
