What Stephen Curry, Draymond Green said after Warriors eliminated Memphis Grizzlies

It was May 21 last year when the Memphis Grizzlies ended the Golden State Warriors’ season in the play-in tournament at Chase Center in San Francisco. The win ended a four-year postseason drought and fast-tracked the Grizzlies to higher expectations.

On Friday, 358 days later, the Warriors got revenge in the same building winning 110-96 in Game 6 and claim the series 4-2 in the Western Conference semifinals. All-Star point guard Ja Morant was sidelined instead of hitting game-clinching baskets and the Grizzlies walked off the court as their historic season ended

The Warriors, headed to their sixth conference finals since 2015, acknowledged their efforts with Draymond Green seeking out Morant for hugs and words before the final buzzer. Green began the series being ejected in Game 1 for a flagrant foul and ended it praising the Grizzlies for their fight.

“That’s a group of young guys that are hungry, they are talented, they are athletic. They got it,” Green said. “You know, it will good to see their progression over these next few years and where they can take it because that’s an incredible young team. You know, they can be special. They can be really special.”
