Virtually everything that could be said about the Grizzlies dramatic and emphatic win over the NBA Champion Golden State Warriors has been said: “Wow! We beat the Warriors!” “Wow, the Grizzlies look pretty good this season!” “Wow! That Dillon Brooks kid is ridiculous!” You’ve heard/seen/read all of that somewhere by now.
So, let’s get straight to some fantastic photos by Warren Roseborough as well as some postgame video I got of Coach David Fizdale, Mike Conley, Tyreke Evans, Jarell Martin and Dillon Brooks. Also got postgame remarks from Warriors players Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson. Dig in!
Next, up the Grizzlies are in Houston tonight to take on another MVP candidate and his team in James Harden and the Rockets. Even without an injured Chris Paul, this will be a tough matchup for the Grizz. Tipoff is at 7 p.m.
Finally, if you’ll allow me a personal indulgence, I’d like to share this Instagram post from my friend, Alpha brother and former employer, Bernal E. Smith II, posting from FedExForum on what would be his final night on Earth.
“Memphis Winning” is an accurate summary of his love for the city and the team. Grind on, Mr. Smith. Grind on.
