Grizzlies Struggle as Thompson, Warriors Erupt
Last night, the Memphis Grizzlies fell short to the Warriors because of Draymond’s all-around attack and Klay Thompson’s three-point explosion.
From the opening tip, the Warriors came out guns blazing. Klay Thompson scored 14 of the first 19 points for the Warriors in the first quarter. Thompson knocked down eight three-pointers in all and finished the game with 36 points.
Steph Curry silently added 18 points, and Kevin Durant ended the night with 24 points.
It was one of those where the Warriors were absolutely on fire. The Grizzlies had no answer. None at all. Their flashy passes and ability to run up and down the floor was just a little too much for the Grizzlies.
Unusual triple double
Draymond Green may have recorded one of the most ironic triple-doubles, but his presence on the floor was astounding,
Green recorded 4 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists, and 10 steals. That makes him the first player in NBA history to record a triple-double with less than 10 points.
You might hate Draymond Green. A lot of people do, and I may be one of them. However, you can’t deny the fact that he is a phenomenal basketball player. Even when he isn’t scoring, he’s making noise on the court as you can tell from his stat line tonight. Then when he does have monster nights scoring the basketball, it’s just the icing on the cake.
Now, let’s talk about the Grizzlies
To put it plain and simple, the Warriors just shot better than the Grizzlies.
You cannot shoot 39 percent and turn the ball over…
