The NBA witnessed one of its biggest shocks of the season when the Memphis Grizzlies took on the Milwaukee Bucks. The Grizzlies handed the Bucks their biggest loss of the season as they were able to secure a 142-101 victory. But NBA fans were far from impressed as they called out the Grizzlies for their disrespectful antics during the game.

This was one of the highly anticipated games of the season as two MVP candidates went head to head. Ja Morant and Giannis Antetokounmpo are having great seasons and are among the top candidates for the MVP award. This game was also a clash between two of the best teams in the NBA. However, it failed to live up to the hype as the Grizzlies were at another level compared to the Bucks.

It was arguably a one-sided affair from tip-off as the Grizzlies didn’t let in for a second. At one point, the lead ballooned to 50 points, and the Grizzlies pulled their starters in the fourth quarter. And then they started to have some fun with the crowd. As the fans started to do the wave across the arena, the Grizzlies bench decided to join in as well. They seemed to be having a lot of fun both on and off the court.
