Grizzlies teammates, coaches and fans have seen Ja Morant make last-second contested layups for game winners this season.
So have the Warriors. They knew the final play was coming.

Steph Curry on him vs. JA narrative:
“You know what sales, but it’s team basketball. There’s no way to win at this level without everybody contributing…It’s a beautiful thing when you look at everybody that contributed tonight. It’s going to be the same way the whole series.” – 8:11 PM

Stephen Curry on being back in the playoffs: “I just missed everything about this atmosphere. … This is what you look forward to so much.” – 7:51 PM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Gary Payton II on if he influenced Ja Morant to miss that last shot attempt:
“We’ve seen that he’s made that shot multiple times throughout the year. I just tried to disrupt it, and Klay did what he needed to do to disrupt it, and it ended up coming off.” – 7:48 PM

Warriors’ Stephen Curry on Draymond Green’s ejection: “Nobody wants to see that. It’s not good for the game. I don’t think it deserved that obviously.” – 7:46 PM

On the last play, Jaren Jackson Jr. said he’s seen Ja Morant make that layup a thousand of times & even more times in the clutch
“It’s a shot he can make in his sleep…I’m with that shot every day of the week…I want him to shoot it a million more times…love that he took it” – 7:40 PM

Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
Ja Morant said they aren’t playing the way they want to play. They gave up too many 2nd chance pts (26) and gave up 18 fast break pts. They don’t want to give that up. – 7:20 PM

Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. had huge nights, but the depth is what has made Memphis so good this season. They were the only two starters in double figures. Warriors offense was surgical. 31 assists. Hard to beat a team when they get <30 assists. – 6:39 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Warriors find a way to win Game 1 (117-116) without Draymond. Poole with 31 off the bench. Curry with 24 and gigantic late defensive play. They were very imperfect, but experience was crucial. – 6:34 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Just a monster of a series opening win for the Warriors on the road. Done without an ejected Draymond Green in the second half. Jordan Poole had 31 points off the bench. Klay Thompson hit go-ahead 3. Steph Curry had 24. Game 2 on Tuesday with Draymond back. – 6:32 PM

Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. are the second duo that is 22 or younger in NBA playoff history with 30 points each in the same game per Elias. The other is Kevin Durant & Russell Westbrook (3 times) – 6:20 PM

1:17 left to play in the game – 6:20 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors with four guards and a wing on the floor down the stretch: Curry, Payton, Poole, Klay, Wiggins. Needed GP2 back on the floor for Morant, couldn’t take Poole off the floor because of his offense. But now you have Klay/Wiggins boxing out Clarke/Jackson. – 6:19 PM
J. Michael Falgoust @ThisIsJMichael
The worry about Curry at the arc opens the backdoor for uncontested layup – 6:19 PM

This coverage on Curry is atrocious at the arc. But Memphis has gotten away with it twice. he’s missed both clean looks – 6:17 PM

Challenge is unsuccessful. Fifth foul on Curry. – 6:10 PM
Duvalier Johnson @DuvalierJohnson
Superstar Curry vs. Dillon Brooks on a call.
Excited to see what happens here in a game the refs already made a questionable call. – 6:10 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Terrible charge call, not in his path since Curry jumped sideways and Brooks was still moving his torso to the left, but don’t see it being overturned nonetheless. – 6:09 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
What a challenge … either Curry’s 5th or Brooks’ 6th – 6:08 PM
Haralabos Voulgaris @haralabob
Quite the challenge here either Brooks fouls out or Curry has 5 and 2 FTs – 6:08 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
5 fouls on Curry. 5 minutes left in the game. Warriors up 105-102. – 6:07 PM

That’s a +5 for the Warriors in 4.5 minutes to open the fourth quarter with Steph Curry resting and Draymond Green in the locker room. If Warriors take this road Game 1, that’s probably the biggest stretch. Curry coming in after the timeout. – 6:00 PM

Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire
For game one against the Grizzlies, the Warriors have opted to start Gary Payton II on Ja Morant. Jordan Poole will come off the bench. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2022/05/01/gar…6:00 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
The Warriors are relentless. There’s no let up. The Grizzlies can’t have those spells they had against the Timberwolves. Golden State’s offense has been in prime form.
Warriors up 99-93 with 9:28 left in the 4th.
Ja Morant and Tyus Jones both in. Worked well vs. Minnesota – 5:56 PM
Jimmy Spencer @JimmySpencer
Draymond out hurts, but man Klay, Poole or Curry … thats so tough down the stretch … 1 of 3 could catch fire and end it.
Will be crucial though to see if that lineup can keep the Grizzlies off the offensive boards when the game slows down. – 5:55 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Jordan Poole up to 29 points in his first playoff game off the bench. 11/19 FG in 30 minutes. Massive open to 4Q with Steph Curry resting. – 5:53 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Jordan Poole is outscoring Ja Morant 24-23 through 3 quarters.
Quiet as kept… – 5:48 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Curry is at 30 minutes. Wiggins at 29. Poole at 28. – 5:47 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
That’s a +7 third quarter for the Warriors without Draymond Green. Ten big Kevon Looney minutes on the back end of the defense and then a three guard bombs away offensive approach. Four combined 3s from Curry/Poole that quarter. – 5:46 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
Steph Curry goes to the bench w/ his 4th foul.
Curry had 13pts in the 3rd qtr. – 5:43 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Curry almost survived the quarter without fouling. Picks up his fourth with 1:03 left – 5:43 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Fourth foul on Curry. – 5:43 PM

JJJeff Curry out there, c’mon – 5:39 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Fourth foul on Dillon Brooks. Fouls Curry on a 3. – 5:34 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors are giving Ja Morant any 3 he wants. Laying way off of him. He’s already taken a playoff-high seven. Made three. But Warriors aren’t backing off the strategy. – 5:24 PM
Geoff Calkins @geoff_calkins
That’s a 9-0 run by Curry, with a foul shot to come. – 5:24 PM
Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
Ja misses pullup 3 then fouls Curry on made corner 3. Big swing and Golden State leads. – 5:23 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Back-to-back midranges from Curry – 5:22 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
Ja Morant started the 1st half with a three and he started the 2nd half with a three-pointer. – 5:21 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Warriors a big half from Curry and/or Klay Thompson from stealing Game 1. They’re getting the looks they want. – 5:11 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Ja Morant with a floater over Kuminga at the halftime buzzer and a ‘he can’t guard me’ message to the Warriors. Grizzlies up six. Bigger issue for GSW: No Draymond Green in the second half. They’ll need Klay Thompson and Gary Payton II to avoid fouls, stay on floor in 2nd half. – 5:04 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Warriors down just 61-55 at the first half. But …
*No Draymond Green for the second half
*Curry, Thompson and Payton all with 3 fouls
*Warriors are cold from 3 (5-for-18)
*Grizzlies are playing well – 5:04 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Grizzlies lead the Warriors 61-55 at halftime. Golden State was called for 15 fouls in the first half, and Memphis was whistled for 11. Curry, Thompson and Payton will start the second half with three fouls. Warriors will be without Draymond Green for the rest of Game 1. – 5:03 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Ja Morant at the buzzer.
Halftime: Grizzlies 61 Golden State 55
This has been an entertaining game – 5:02 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Now Curry picks up his third foul with 1:15 left in the half. Good lord. – 5:00 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
3 seconds after Draymond Green gets ejected, Curry picks up his third – 5:00 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Draymond Green gets ejected for a grab and yank of Brandon Clarke’s jersey. Warriors bench is stunned. Steph Curry to the referees: “That’s f****** crazy.” They thought it’d be a flagrant 1 maximum. – 4:59 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Warriors have to like what they’re getting from Kuminga right now. Using his length and athleticism to his advantage. Even giving Ja Morant some problems defensively. – 4:53 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Gary Payton II picks up his third foul with 9:30 left in the second quarter. This is wild.
Grizzlies up 11. Ja Morant is on the bench. – 4:31 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
The Warriors’ foul trouble is mounting. In the first 15 minutes:
GP2 3
Klay 3
Curry 2 – 4:30 PM
Adam Lauridsen @GSWFastBreak
Really looking forward to a whistle anytime a Griz player bumps Curry. – 4:26 PM
Mark Giannotto @mgiannotto
Through one quarter, Grizzlies looked as comfortable as they’ve looked all postseason. It’s obvious already that Golden State has a Ja Morant problem in this series. – 4:24 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Grizzlies up after a quarter where Ja Morant’s co-starters missed 10 of 12 shots – 4:23 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
I’ll say it again:
Ja Morant looked pretty good to me against Minnesota from a physical perspective. That defense just collapsed 3 or 4 dudes in the paint and they are uniquely athletic. Warriors don’t have the same kind of athleticism on the back of the defense. – 4:23 PM
Pete Pranica @PetePranica
Ja Morant on a roll. 14 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists. 16-6 run and Grizz lead 32-24 after 1st quarter. – 4:22 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
THAT version of Ja Morant is a big time problem for Golden State. – 4:22 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
Talk about throwing the first punch for the @Memphis Grizzlies!
After the 1st qtr, Grizzlies up 32-24 over the Warriors.
Ja Morant had 14pts, the Grizzlies went 6-14 3PG, grabbed 7 offensive rebounds for 10pts and scored 8pts off of 4 turnovers by the Warriors. – 4:22 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
The first quarter looked like the Grizzlies team from the regular season. Playing fast. Ja Morant had 14 points
End of 1: Grizzlies 32 Warriors 24
Grizzlies only shot 37% overall but doubled Golden State in made 3-pointers (6). – 4:21 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Bro, Ja Morant is so tough – 4:20 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Again, Memphis should drive it at Curry. – 4:17 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Draymond Green and Ja Morant with a lil face to face chit chat on the inbound and the crowd was loving it. Morant was clapping his hands while Draymond stood in front of him. Playoff basketball >>> – 4:16 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Klay Thompson and Gary Payton II are already on the bench with two fouls. Now Stephen Curry picks up his second foul with 3:56 left in the first quarter. He’s staying in. – 4:15 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Second on Curry. Memphis needs to attack him. – 4:15 PM
Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Allen Iverson and Derrick Rose need to pull Ja Morant in a room with some microfilm, showing him how they fell, their scars of war and hopefully he gets the message – 4:15 PM

CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Ja Morant took a hard fall and is holding his lower back. Moving around gingerly. – 4:11 PM

Two fouls on Gary Payton II, two fouls on Klay Thompson, one on Steph curry in the first six minutes. Jordan Poole entering after the timeout. – 4:09 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Des Bane just had Steph Curry ice skating 👀 – 4:05 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Steve Kerr said before the game that Golden State doesn’t have a similar personnel to Minnesota, so it has to go about limiting Ja Morant in its own way. So far, Morant has the upper hand – 3:58 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
What a move by Ja Morant!! Absolutely beautiful!! – 3:55 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Ja Morant only made 2 threes in one of the six games against Minnesota. He made two in the first two minutes against Golden State. – 3:54 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Grizzlies doing a great job early making GPII switch off Ja Morant. To start things out, Morant has hit two 3’s to get crowd hyped. – 3:53 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Ja Morant brought the clip! – 3:53 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Ja Morant is 2-2 from 3-point range to start. Grizzlies lead 6-0. – 3:53 PM

Ja Morant getting started early! Knocks down a 3 for the first pts in the game! – 3:52 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Warriors starting small: GP2, Curry, Thompson, Wiggins, Draymond
Grizzlies starting big: Ja, Bane, Brooks, Tillman, Jackson – 3:49 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
The biggest lineup move was made by Steve Kerr. The Warriors are starting Gary Payton II. Obviously a move for guarding Ja Morant. – 3:29 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Will be fascinating to see how GPII handles Ja Morant early. GPII has been great on Morant this season, but he’ll need to watch reach-ins. Whistles are tighter in the playoffs. – 3:28 PM
