Grizzlies’ Dillon Brooks’s Message for Warriors After Series Loss

While Golden State produced one of its iconic offensive stretches in Friday’s 110–96 series clinching win against Memphis, Dillon Brooks provided the perfect perspective on where the Grizzlies sit among the league’s best teams going forward.

As Memphis fought resiliently for nearly the entire game without star point guard Ja Morant, who suffered a bone bruise after Game 3 in the series, Brooks said the Grizzlies have raised the bar and the Warriors took notice.

“We’re young and they’re getting old,” Brooks said. “They know that we are going to come every single year.”

Brooks, who finished with 30 points and four rebounds in the Grizzlies’ loss, was an integral part of a young Memphis team that earned the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference playoffs after posting 56 wins this season, their most in a single season since the 2012 to ’13 campaign.
