Warriors’ Steph Curry, Klay Thompson Have Had Enough Of Grizzlies’ Dillon Brooks

Dillon Brooks helped refuel memphis grizzlies win Golden State Warriors on Saturday, but the Warriors were in no mood to entertain his two-pronged effort.

at the end of the grizzlies 133-119 After the win at FedExForum, Klay Thompson was fed up with Brooks yelling “You suck” from the Grizzlies bench. So Thompson counted four fingers toward Brooks and the Grizzlies bench.

This indicated the four championships he had won, and he made a similar gesture to Phoenix Suns All-Star Devin Booker earlier this season. But Thompson didn’t stop there, dismissing Brooks the rest of the postgame.

“I don’t care about Dillon Brooks,” Thompson told The Commercial Appeal. “When he retires, I don’t think anybody will ever talk about Dillon Brooks again. I promise you. It’s good now, but wait 10 years.”

Brooks took Thompson’s gesture in stride as a competitive joke. With a raspy voice, he lauded what the Warriors have done over the past 10 years and said the Grizzlies are using that as fuel.

Brooks said, “He has four rings. That’s just what he was saying. It’s inspiration for us.” “We want a ring, too. Being able to go through the steps we took last year, going through the process, we’re moving forward and learning from it. It’s friendly shit, but I have a lot in San All real estate.” Francisco.”

The two teams have split their regular-season series, with the home team winning each of the four games.

Stephen Curry didn’t want to discuss Brooks personally, but picked apart the Grizzlies’ collective effort. The two teams played a second night of back-to-back but the Grizzlies made 18 3-pointers to the Warriors’ 13.

Curry shot 5-for-15 with 16 points, while Brooks had 18 points and was 4-for-4 on 3-pointers.

When asked about guarding Brooks, Curry said, “We played the entire Memphis Grizzlies, not just him.”

The teams met in the playoffs the previous season, with the Warriors winning the semifinals in six games. When the teams met on Christmas Day, Thompson committed a technical foul after yelling in Brooks’ direction while running downcourt.

On March 9, Curry and Draymond Green dismissed the Grizzlies as a rival after the latter won at FedExForum. However, the Grizzlies still view the Warriors as something to shoot for. There is a chance that the two teams could meet in the first round of the playoffs, so time will tell if things keep going for a second season in a row.
