Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
The Grizzlies are concerned about Ja Morant’s health and wondering about Jordan Poole’s intentions on a fourth-quarter play that Morant retweeted with “broke the code” before later deleting the tweet espn.com/nba/story/_/id…2:04 AM
Geoff Calkins @geoff_calkins
Get well soon, Ja. That’s what matters now. (Oh, and I also weigh in on whether Jordan Poole broke the code). Column: dailymemphian.com/subscriber/sec…1:52 AM

Rooting for GSW slightly, but love Ja Morant and really just want to see him healthy and playing, because it’s been a fun series to watch. But to suggest that “broke the code” is dead wrong, and glad Ja took down tweet – 12:48 AM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
We have some serious drama unfolding in Grizzlies vs. Warriors.
The latest is a pull on Ja Morant’s knee that has Memphis upset. Jordan Poole said it was a basketball play, and his teammates were very defensive of him.

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Stephen Curry on the Jordan Poole/Ja Morant incident:
“There’s nothing malicious about what Jordan did. There’s no comparison to what Dillon did or Draymond…It’s not a joking matter. Ja’s hurt. The rest of it is just total BS.” – 12:30 AM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Before today, not sure I have ever seen an injury after an opponent tugged on someone’s knee. I know the Jordan Poole video doesn’t look great, but I think it’s worth wondering if anyone would ever think “it might work out well if I just pull on this guy’s knee.” – 12:23 AM

Jordan Poole would take a 10-9 against Canelo right now the way this fight is going. – 12:21 AM

James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Memphis’ defense on Jordan Poole got him looking like a first ballot HOFer. – 10:39 PM
Bobby Marks @BobbyMarks42
The development of Jordan Poole is a franchise changer for Golden St.
The championship window stays open for the foreseeable future because of the former first rounder. – 10:39 PM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
The Warriors are trying to make the Grizzlies throw in the towel. – 10:39 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
The Grizzlies have been playing denial/press-up defense on Curry with Melton/Ziaire and making sure the help is ready. What they’re giving up is one v. one for the other guard and Poole is feasting on it – 10:37 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Another 25 points for Jordan Poole tonight on 10/14 FG. His first eight career playoff games: 22.6 points per on 57% shooting overall, 47% from 3. – 10:37 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Warriors threatening that record for TS% in a playoff game. As of right now would set it with 78.5%. – 10:36 PM
Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
Jordan Poole is the reason this Grizzlies strategy to sell out to the three-point line is failing so spectacularly. He’s better at surging downhill off the dribble or the catch than anyone the Warriors have had in a long time. – 10:36 PM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Jordan Poole might be taking this series personally. He has 25 points off the bench on 10-of-14 shooting from the field. – 10:36 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
That’s a rough miscommunication between Jones and Jackson on that Poole dunk. Jones just gives up the straight right hand drive, Jackson was waiting on the opposite side for him to force into the screen. – 10:35 PM

Rick Noland @RickNoland
Jordan Poole 2023 Sixth Man Award. Book it! – 10:34 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Otto Porter should get fined for jumping at Anderson’s pump fake and giving up a huge dunk. – 10:33 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Warriors are shooting it really well, obviously. But the defense is still concerning despite Dillon Brooks. Can’t get beat to the rim as many times as they have.
Warriors were 24th in paint points this season (44.9) they are 26-35 for 52 already. That’s alarming. – 10:32 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
One of the first times we’ve seen Klay as primary matchup on Ja. Interested to see how this goes. – 10:31 PM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
After three quarters, the Warriors are shooting 65% from the field, 52.6% from deep, and 92.9% from the free-throw line. They lead Memphis 101-80. – 10:29 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ja might get 47 again, but will the Warriors blow a 23-point lead at home? – 10:28 PM
Memphis Grizzlies @memgrizz
Not a fun 3rd. 4th quarter is here. let’s make a push.
📺 ABC | 📻 @929espn pic.twitter.com/3O73yFH8cc10:28 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
101 points for the Warriors in three quarters. They had 38 in the second, 37 in the third. Getting basically anything they want. Balanced attack. Steph Curry leads team with 23 points and has only made one 3. Klay has 18, Wiggins 17, Poole 16, Porter 10. – 10:28 PM
Rick Noland @RickNoland
Warriors too deep for Griz – 10:28 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
Warriors outscore the Grizzlies 35-21 in that 3rd qtr.
Ja Morant had 13 of the 21pts. – 10:27 PM
Adam Lauridsen @GSWFastBreak
Bring on Dillon Brooks. – 10:27 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
END OF Q3: Warriors up 101-80 on the Grizzlies. Golden State is just toying with Memphis right now. Outside of Ja Morant (30 points), the Grizzlies not getting much going. – 10:27 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
The non Ja Morant Grizzlies are shooting a combined 17-of-50 from the field. The Grizzlies are not complementing Ja’s offensive brilliance. Nor are they lifting him up on defense. – 10:26 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
I’m old enough to remember when Memphis had a double-digit lead – 10:26 PM
Melissa Rohlin @melissarohlin
Ja Morant has 28 points on 11-for-18 shooting but he’s not getting much help. None of his teammates have even taken double-digit field goal attempts. – 10:25 PM
Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Memphis is down big and I mean big…but Ja is doing some shape-shifting moves to the lane for scores – 10:24 PM

J. Michael Falgoust @ThisIsJMichael
Draymond only has 5 points. No way that he has had any impact on his team being up by 22… or that impact is overrated. This is what someone who knows absolutely nothing about basketball would say 🤣 – 10:22 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
The offensive foul by Kuminga was the Warriors’ first turnover of the third quarter – 10:22 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
I believe that Ja steal on Klay was the first Warriors TO of the quarter. Consequently, they’re up 20. – 10:21 PM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Whenever Jonathan Kuminga is in the game, you can expect something exciting to happen. – 10:19 PM
Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
It’s a 35-point turnaround from when the Grizz led by 13. Woodshed performance by Golden State – 10:19 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Really smart to get Kuminga back in. Good for his confidence – 10:19 PM

Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Warriors starting to run away with this thing. Up 87-66 midway through the third. Just having whatever they want offensively. 68% from the field (9-for-16 from 3). – 10:13 PM
Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
That Poole step rhythm 😍😍 – 10:13 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
If this was 2K, Grizzlies would have to pass the sticks right now. – 10:13 PM
Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
Jenkins going early and often to small-ball lineups. They’d probably look a lot better, especially defensively, with Dillon Brooks in them. – 10:13 PM
Adam Lauridsen @GSWFastBreak
Find Klay. Every time down. – 10:13 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Poole has not been shy about going at Ja in this one – 10:13 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Klay might’ve just taken his worst shot of the series, and drilled it — a one-footer off a screen – 10:12 PM
Adam Lauridsen @GSWFastBreak
Otto Porter: +28 in 18 minutes. And likely played himself into the starting line-up. – 10:08 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Ja Morant has been great again tonight. Score is still lopsided because they can’t get stops. – 10:08 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Warriors are doing a much better job on Morant tonight and he’s 9/13 for 23 points. 4/6 from 3, bu those have been largely tougher looks than previously. Ja also starting to adjust to being played to go left every time here in the 2nd half. – 10:08 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Grizzlies got some friendly whistles in the first half but that out of bounds call on Tillman just now was brutal. – 10:07 PM
Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
I’m not surprised Golden State is getting O boards. That can be explained by geometry — long shots, unpredictable rebounds, scrambling defensive rebounders.
I am surprised Memphis isn’t getting their usual supply. That’s the key to the series so far. Major credit to GSW’s wings – 10:07 PM
Golden State Warriors @warriors
“May I have this dance?” – Steph (maybe)
📺 #NBAonABC pic.twitter.com/VF4A6g8ZE210:05 PM

That’s a ridiculous play by Wiggins to negate the ridiculous split by Ja. Stayed with it and peeled onto Tillman when his man stepped up, got the steal. – 10:04 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
The Warriors are 31-of-43 shooting — 72 percent. – 10:03 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
That’s a quick 8-0 run out of the locker room from the Warriors. A couple Klay Thompson jumpers. Otto Porter is now +24 in 16 minutes, a +43 in 60 minutes this series. – 9:59 PM

Otto Porter starts the second half instead of Jonathan Kuminga. Given how impressive Porter was in that first half, I can’t say I’m surprised. – 9:56 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Porter Jr. starts the second half in place of Kuminga. – 9:56 PM

Adam Lauridsen @GSWFastBreak
Jordan Poole: +24 in 15 minutes. – 9:54 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Wild thing about Ja having a game-high 17 at half is that he was mostly chilling. Only attempted two shots in the paint through two quarters.
Of course, too many Grizzlies were chilling defensively, and they need to get stops if they want to play a relevant fourth quarter – 9:54 PM
Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
I think the Grizzlies’ strategy is to accept some layups, Steph back screens, and cuts by guys like Wiggins as a trade-off to addressing the activity at the three-point line. I’m not sure they wanted to accept THIS many. – 9:48 PM
Golden State Warriors @warriors
always got your back, that’s fam. pic.twitter.com/pncdm2HKq79:46 PM

The Warriors are shooting 70 percent from the field, but their 14 turnovers are the reason for their 7-point halftime lead. – 9:45 PM

Is Otto Porter is the new Iguodala? – 9:45 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Draymond only Warrior with 3 fouls, only one of which was legitimate – 9:45 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Ja Morant is must-see TV at this point. – 9:43 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Andrew Wiggins’ 15 points so far are the most he’s scored in a first half of a playoff game in his entire career. A good sign for the Warriors — as anyone will tell you: an assertive Wiggins is the best version of Wiggins.
Warriors up 64-57 at the half. – 9:43 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
At the half: Warriors 64, Grizzlies 57
-Crushing the glass (21-14)
-Crushing FG%: 70.3-43.5
-Crushing the paint points: 32-16
But . . . 14 turnovers, giving MEM 19 points – 9:43 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Ja Morant sinks a half court 3-pointer to end the half. Warriors lead the Grizzlies 64-57. Golden State is shooting 70.3 percent from the field and playing solid defense. If it weren’t for Memphis’ hot start from deep and 14 turnovers, Dubs could be up big. – 9:43 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
GSW with 81% TS in the first half. Shot 74% from 2 and 6/10 from 3. But turned it over on 28% of their possessions. 7 Memphis steals, 2 Porter travels, 2 step out of bounds, 2 Draymond illegal screens. The Porter travel and Dray screens were very iffy calls. – 9:43 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Rebounds:
Warriors- 21
Grizzlies- 14
Grizzlies franchise/NBA single-season offensive rebounding leader:
Steven Adams
Minutes:
Steven Adams – 0 – 9:42 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
They never call traveling on the inbounder but Bane traveled before Ja hit the halfcourt shot. – 9:42 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
One thing I wonder in the Timberwolves loss to Memphis, was if Anthony Edwards will take anything away from how effective it was for Memphis when Ja just kept attacking, almost every time down there floor. Edwards says it’s hard to keep doing that, but the results can be great. – 9:42 PM
Mark Giannotto @mgiannotto
Ja Morant from 48-feet to ensure Memphis trails Golden State, 64-57, after a first half in which the Warriors shot better than 70 percent from the field. Grizzlies playing an imperfect but resilient brand of basketball. – 9:42 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Grizzlies led 21-8 in that first half. They were outscored 56-36 over the last 18:19 of that half.
It has been a rough go for the bench. – 9:42 PM
Adam Lauridsen @GSWFastBreak
Not going to draw parallels to Curry’s 2015 heave in Memphis. Not ready to go there. – 9:42 PM
Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
Warriors shot 70% (!) from the field in the first half. Good Grizzlies 3-point shooting (11-23) and Warriors turnovers (14) keeping the game close. Dubs up 64-57. – 9:41 PM
Evan Dunlap @BQRMagic
Ja Morant lmfao – 9:41 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
HALFTIME: Warriors up 64-57 on the Grizzlies. Golden State is shooting an absurd 70.3% from the field. Getting some great production from Wiggins (15 points) and Porter (10). – 9:41 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ja Morant lol – 9:41 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Draymond Green upset with Steph Curry at the end of the half. Curry danced with the ball up top and it ends up drawing Draymond into a second illegal screen. Threw a seat cushion and went to locker room as Ja Morant hit halfcourter. Eleventh Memphis 3, but Warriors still up 7. – 9:41 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Two flops by Memphis on Draymond screens were huge plays to keep the Grizz close. – 9:41 PM

JA MORANT!!!!!!!! – 9:40 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Ja Morant is so tough! My goodness what a play. – 9:40 PM
Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Ja! Keeping Memphis in it. That 3 at the buzzer makes it 64-57 at the half. Both teams should feel a little sheepish the scorer is where it is – 9:40 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
The offensive foul on Green was the Warriors’ 14th turnover of the half. That and the Grizzlies’ 11 threes are why Memphis is still in the game – 9:40 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Wow. Ja Morant from 50 feet for a buzzer beater.
Halftime:
Warriors 64 Grizzlies 57
Memphis started off shooting lights out, but the offense hasn’t been good in the halfcourt, and the defense hasn’t been good at all without Dillon Brooks. Warriors shooting 70.3 (!!) percent. – 9:40 PM

Ja Morant is a walking highlight. – 9:40 PM

Dillon Brooks is probably yelling very loudly into the TV watching the Grizzlies play defense right now. They clearly miss him. – 9:35 PM

Beautiful Gortat screen from Draymond to free Steph to the rim. – 9:35 PM

Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Stephen Curry is hobbling. – 9:34 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Ja Morant has mostly been an outside shooter and passer so far. But on his lastest basket, he took it right to the whole past Draymond – 9:34 PM
Brad Botkin @bradbotkincbs
No way anyone will convince me the new ball hasn’t affected Curry’s shooting. He has smaller hands, relative to NBA players, and the smaller the hands the more dependent you are on the grip and feel of the ball. There is no other explanation for how far some of his misses are off – 9:34 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Warriors are shooting over 70 percent from the field. – 9:33 PM

Ja Morant went right at Draymond Green and finished at the rim. – 9:33 PM

Ziaire Williams has 2 alley oop dunks and the GSW scorer still hasn’t credited the Grizz with a shot at the rim yet. I know I complain about this every game but it’s truly absurd. – 9:27 PM
Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
The Grizzlies are essentially playing Steph from behind. Melton kinda let him go by that last play and chased him down to prevent the shot. New-age strategy, that’s for sure. – 9:26 PM

Xavier Tillman ain’t the one for the Warriors to attack. – 9:25 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Ziaire Williams is going to be a great player in this league. – 9:25 PM

Xavier Tillman Sr. is back in, so Steven Adams is definitely not in the rotation. – 9:20 PM

I know this sounds crazy, but the Warriors have to challenge JJJ. He’ll block some shots, but he’ll also pick up some fouls. They’re driving and kicking without even challenging him. – 9:19 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Warriors open Q2 with 10-2 blast, take 36-30 lead, and Grizzlies call timeout with/9:10 left.
If not for the cascade of turnovers (10 according to stat screen) Warriors are up 15. Shooting 70pct – 9:19 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
The Warriors have 10 turnovers in 15 minutes and Curry only has three points. Yet, they’re up six. That bodes well. – 9:19 PM
Mark Giannotto @mgiannotto
If Golden State shoots 69.3 percent from the field and Memphis shoots 37.5 percent from the field — which is the case right now — I like the Warriors’ chances in this one. – 9:18 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Otto Porter is a +16 already tonight. He was a +17 in Game 2. He’s 2 of 15 from 3 in the playoffs, but remains a steady part of the rotation for several reasons. Rebounding loudest among them. He has 20 rebounds the first 10 quarters of this series. – 9:18 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Grizzlies are playing the Warriors too close to even on the offensive/defensive glass like the first two games. This time, Steven Adams is on the bench in a t-shirt. – 9:17 PM
Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
Porter Jr. and Wiggins have been absolute hell on the offensive glass since the GPII injury. – 9:17 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Otto Porter Jr. is such an essential glue guy. Does all the little things to keep the Warriors humming. Has the best plus-minus on the team this postseason behind Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins. – 9:17 PM
Chris Vernon @ChrisVernonShow
the whole squad on fire is now the Warriors. sheesh. – 9:17 PM
Jason Dumas @JDumasReports
Otto Porter has been great all postseason even without hitting open looks. If he can get that part of his game back on track, it’d be invaluable. – 9:17 PM

3p play by Klay gives Warriors their first lead, 31-30, 10:40 Q2. Poole 3 makes it 34-30 – 9:15 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
And just like that, Warriors lead 34-30. – 9:15 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Klay has made his first four shots, all within the paint. The latest came on a drive where he fell and drew a foul before converting on the layup – 9:14 PM
Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Klay Thompson entered today shooting 29 percent and 22 from 3 in this series.
4-4 today – 9:14 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Wow, Klay not only actually worked into deep post position, but then went left shoulder for once. Totally faked out Bane for the and one. – 9:13 PM
Tas Melas @TasMelas
If the Warriors win the title, everyone is taking the Finals MVP from Steph again: Poole, Wiggins, chin balancing guy. – 9:13 PM

If Golden State can quell the turnovers just a bit, this game will turn into a blowout if it continues in this fashion. Grizz are not getting good enough shots. – 9:12 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22

Mike Richman @mikegrich
Dubs gotta feel okay about their chance. The Grizzlies started out super hot from 3, Golden State had a bunch of dumb turnovers they can clean up and Chin Balancer is in the arena. – 9:11 PM

Warriors commit 8 turnovers and allow Grizzlies to shoot 6/11 from 3 and trail by only 2, 28-26, after the first quarter.

-Wiggins 7 pts, solid D on Ja
-Klay 2/2 FG, Curry 1/3
-Rebounds: 9-8 MEM – 9:11 PM

Wild stat relative to how the Grizzlies played all season: Warriors have more turnovers (8) than the Grizzlies have points in the paint (6). – 9:11 PM

First quarter: Seven Warriors turnovers. Scattered and sloppy offensively. High risk passing from Draymond/Steph/Kuminga. But only down two because of a focused defensive effort. Memphis has rained some difficult 3s, but GSW making everything tough. – 9:10 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Warriors are 12-for-18 from the field, 2-for-5 from 3. If not for the eight turnovers … – 9:10 PM
Memphis Grizzlies @memgrizz
a quarter of runs.
good guys lead 28-26 after the first 12.

7 Warriors turnovers, Memphis 6/11 from three, down 2? I will take it. – 9:09 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
After the 1st qtr, Grizzlies up 28-26.
Grizzlies were able to knock down 6 threes and the Warriors did most of their damage from inside the paint (20pts) – 9:09 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Stephen Curry drills a 3-pointer from the right wing to beat the first-quarter buzzer, his first bucket of the night. Grizzlies lead the Warriors 28-26 heading into the next frame. Not the best start for Golden State defensively, but they’re shooting 63.2 percent from the field. – 9:09 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
END OF Q1: Warriors trail the Grizzlies, 28-26. After falling behind by 13, Golden State clawed back within 2. The Warriors already have seven turnovers. – 9:09 PM
Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Golden State grinds themselves to within two after the first. Shooting 63 percent after a choppy turnover-filled start – 9:09 PM
Mark Giannotto @mgiannotto
Grizzlies were 1 for their last 9 from the field after that initial avalanche. Half court offense didn’t look good the final 6 mins or so. Golden State getting better looks on its end. – 9:09 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Warriors trim the Grizzlies first-quarter lead to 28-26. Warriors making an effort to own the paint points (20-6), while Memphis has shot well from deep (6-of-11). – 9:09 PM
Jason Dumas @JDumasReports
After several bad calls against them, all those turnovers, and the flurry of Grizzlies threes early, being down two after 1 is a win for GSW. – 9:08 PM
Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
Grizzlies built 13-point lead early on hot 3-point shooting. Warriors weathered the storm and have worked back to within 2. Grizzlies only 3-10 inside the arc. – 9:08 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Good news: Grizzlies lead after 1.
Bad news: Grizz offense really his a slide there in the 1st. Only field goal after that Ziaire Williams dunk was an awkward Kyle Anderson floater from the free-throw line. – 9:07 PM
Adam Lauridsen @GSWFastBreak

Grizz shooting has been ridiculous so far, but Warriors defense much better in Game 2. That starts with Ja, they are not letting him get left and actually providing some pressure to direct the ball. – 9:01 PM
Duvalier Johnson @DuvalierJohnson
Hold on, the Lil Baby verse with Ja Morant x NBA commercial is 🔥 🔥 – 9:01 PM
Mark Giannotto @mgiannotto
Dillon Brooks shot selection can sometimes drive you nuts but Grizzlies are missing him here at end of the first quarter. He’s usually out there with Morant and the reserves as a secondary shot creator. Could use more of that with Golden State’s defense amped up another level. – 8:59 PM
Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
I continue to believe Kerr is overthinking it with not starting Jordan Poole – 8:58 PM

Grizzlies hit the offensive skid after starting 6-for-8 from 3 to start. Five straight possessions with a turnover or miss. – 8:57 PM

Even when Brooks is back, Grizzlies got to find time for this young kid Williams. Athletic. Shoots threes. Long. Gonna be a problem one day. – 8:55 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Kuminga’s 7 minutes: two buckets – and three glaring mistakes, 2 of which resulted in turnovers – 8:55 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Jordan Poole and Otto Porter Jr. are the first players off the bench for the Warriors. They’re out there with Curry, Wiggins and Green. – 8:55 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Good and bad from Jonathan Kuminga in that first stint. Held up well against Ja Morant a couple times on defense, but was in too big of a rush a few times on offense. Two scattered turnovers and a missed corner 3. – 8:55 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Kuminga just gotta go for the dunk. If he gets a charge, he gets a charge – 8:54 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
I’ve said it many times, but no exaggeration at all … Ziaire Williams is one the best forwards in the NBA at running the wing in the transition. All those alley-oops don’t happen on accident. That’s a skill. – 8:54 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Warriors finally made their first 3 at the 6:11 mark off of Klay’s drive-and-kick to Wiggins. We’ll see if the Warriors’ offense starts revving up soon. – 8:53 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Grizzlies have already made five 3s from 25 feet or longer five minutes into the game. You just tip your cap and move on, there’s no defending that. – 8:50 PM
Kevin O’Connor @KevinOConnorNBA
What an absurd shooting display by the Grizzlies. Meanwhile, absolutely disgusting, sloppy Warriors offense to start another game. Happens too often for Golden State – 8:49 PM

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
All 18 of the Grizzlies points at the first time out have come on threes. They’re 6-8. – 8:49 PM
Mark Giannotto @mgiannotto
Everyone in this building, including me, thought Golden State would come out with a barrage. Instead, it’s Memphis dropping 3-pointers from all over the court. Amazing start on the road for the Grizzlies. – 8:49 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Four Warriors turnovers and 6-fo-8 shooting from deep has Memphis out to a 10-point lead early in Game 3. – 8:48 PM
Memphis Grizzlies @memgrizz
6 of 8 from deep to start the party 🔥 🔥 – 8:48 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Grizzlies have 18 points without a made two-pointer. Incredible start for Memphis. – 8:48 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Ok so the Grizzlies are 6-8 from 3-point range in just five minutes. Memphis up 18-8. Morant is 2-2 from deep. – 8:48 PM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Jaren Jackson Jr. from Oakland! – 8:46 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Grizzlies 4-for-6 from 3 already – 8:46 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Kuminga 2-2 from the field through three minutes. Opened the scoring for the Warriors with a tip-in and just threw down a dunk. Impressive start by the rookie. – 8:46 PM
Jason Dumas @JDumasReports
Klay visibly irked by that Kuminga shot a few possessions ago. Made a “pass that” motion to them during the dead ball right after. – 8:45 PM
Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
Bane quick catch-and-shoot from the corner, against tight defense. Huge sign for the Grizzlies. He couldn’t get that kind of shot off in Game 2. – 8:45 PM
