"We all had the mentality to close the series tonight, but sometimes basketball is not an exact science," said shooting guard Klay Thompson. After the defeat of the Golden State Warriors (134-95) in his visit to the Memphis Grizzlies, the American made statements at a press conference.
The "Grizzly Bears" gave the Warriors a beating without team star Ja Morant at The FedExForum. Warriors coach Steve Kerr couldn't sit through the entire game giving directions, which weren't enough to counteract the result.
Memphis scored 77 points in the first half with a 27-point lead and in the third quarter they even had a 55-point difference.
The only player in history with 500 three-pointers in the NBA playoffs, Stephen Curry was absent in the game with about 14 points.
"They obviously came out with a sense of urgency and our plan, in the sense of how we know we can beat this team, we got it all wrong. Turnovers, offensive rebounds given up, fouls...” Curry said.
