“They got Draymond talking they got Klay talking” Grizzlies Dillon Brooks lifts lid on being charged-up vs Warriors following stunning victory

Before to their matchup with the Golden State Warriors, the Memphis Grizzlies had a challenging schedule. The Grizzlies defeated the Warriors 133-119 despite having played an extra game the previous night against the San Antonio Spurs. The Warriors’ verbal sparring helped the squad prepare for the game, according to Dillon Brooks, who said, “They managed to get Draymond Green to speak. They managed to talk to Klay Thompson. So getting ready for this game is simple. I was all set. Despite just getting four hours of sleep, I was prepared to leave.”

Since Brooks and Draymond Green have been arguing frequently, there has been animosity between these two squads. After Green defeated the Warriors earlier this season, Brooks made fun of him. It would be interesting to watch them play each other in the playoffs because of the rivalry’s current intensity, which is unmatched in the NBA.

All of the Grizzlies’ starters scored in the double digits to start the game, and Jaren Jackson Jr. led the club with 31 points. Stephen Curry was well-defended by Brooks, who also scored 18 points. He also had some harsh words for Klay Thompson as the game came to a close, telling him, “You suck.”

This was probably in retaliation for Klay making fun of Brooks following a Warriors victory earlier in the season. With each team winning at home, the victory knotted the Grizzlies and Warriors’ season series at 2-2. The Grizzlies would have the home-court advantage if they met in the playoffs, which might be a big benefit for them.

Overall, especially considering their demanding schedule leading up to the game, the Grizzlies have shown amazing perseverance and tenacity in their victory over the Warriors. The team’s eagerness to take on their bitter rivals suggests a strong sense of focus and competition, which is good news for their hopes of making the playoffs.

Dillon Brooks and Draymond Green have developed a heated rivalry on the court. The two players have a history of trash-talking and exchanging barbs during games. Brooks has made it clear that he doesn’t back down from anyone and is not afraid to challenge Green. Their rivalry came to a head during a game in February 2023, when Brooks was ejected after receiving two technical fouls for trash-talking and shoving Green.

However, Brooks has had his fair share of victories over Green and the Warriors, including a recent win in which Brooks played excellent defense against Stephen Curry and hit some clutch shots down the stretch. The rivalry between these two players and their teams has become one of the most exciting and intense in the NBA, and fans can’t wait to see what happens when they face off again.
