The Western Conference Semi-Final series between the Warriors and the Grizzlies have been heating up for some time. Warriors may have eked out a 4-2 series win but Memphis will look at this as an opportunity missed rather than a loss. The Grizzlies played the last two games without their franchise cornerstone Ja Morant, who got injured.

The series got off to a rough start when Dillon Brooks was ejected from Game 2 of the series. Brooks was ejected from Game 2 after committing a Flagrant 2 foul on Warriors guard Gary Payton II.

The Warriors didn’t like the foul and even Steve Kerr addressed it in his post-match comments. Steve Kerr said Brooks “broke the code” with his foul. The league then took notice of the situation and suspended Brooks from Game three, which the Grizzlies lost.

Is a new rivalry brewing up?

Dillon Brooks had some strong post-game comments for the series. He said, “They know that we’re going to come every single year,”. He continued, ‘We’re young, and they’re getting old. So, they know we’re coming every single year.

When asked to respond to these comments, Stephen Curry had a blunt response. He said, “ He’s said a lot of crazy things,”. He further elaborated, “He called himself a dynasty already, so you’ve got to figure. On to the next round.” We can certainly call the Grizzlies confident, but they still have much to learn.

The Warriors are a proven franchise that had a dynastic run from 2014 to 2019. They reached five straight finals and won three of them. And if not for a Kevin Durant injury, they might have just three-peated in 2019.
