    After losing to the Golden State Warriors in six games, Memphis Grizzlies guard Dillon Brooks made a bold statement about the future. The Grizzlies think it’s their time, but the Warriors aren’t ready to relinquish the Western Conference throne just yet. Despite losing to the Dubs in six games in the Western Conference Semifinals, Dillon Brooks has an eye towards the future. Even without Ja Morant for the final few games of this series, the Grizzlies looked like a formidable foe against an embattled Golden State team. “They know that we’re going to come every single year,” Brooks said. “We’re young, and they’re getting old. So, they know we’re coming every single year.” Brooks, who guarded Steph Curry admirably for most of the series, could not have been ready for this kind of response from the Dubs star. “He’s said a lot of crazy things,” Curry told The Athletic. “He called himself a dynasty already, so you’ve got to figure. On to the next round. Western Conference finals, we’re back. Let’s goooo!” Steph Curry: Are the Grizzlies next up in the Western Conference?With a...
    Getty Klay Thompson and Dillon Brooks exchange words during a playoff bout between the Golden State Warriors and the Memphis Grizzlies. After a pair of uninspiring efforts in Games 4 and 5 of their Western Conference semifinal series, the Golden State Warriors finally dispatched the Memphis Grizzlies with a 110-96 Game 6 win on Friday. Klay Thompson was brilliant throughout, scoring a game-high 30 points and nailing eight threes, while Stephen Curry sealed the deal by scoring 11 of his 29 points during the final frame. However, the Dubs were fortunate that Steph was even available down the stretch after the Grizzlies’ Dillon Brooks had what some are considering another “code-breaking” moment. With just over three minutes remaining in the first half, Brooks wrapped Curry around the neck and then delivered a hard shove in the back while the players were chasing down a rebound. The Grizz wing was ultimately called for a level-one flagrant foul for his actions. He also drew the ire of Thompson, who received a technical foul of his own for coming to Steph’s...
    SAN FRANCISCO — Dillon Brooks would like to put the play that injured Gary Payton II behind him. “It’s in the past,” he said Monday. “I didn’t mean for it to hurt somebody.” It’s unlikely, however, the Warriors and their fans will let Brooks forget the egregious foul he committed against Payton in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals that possibly ended the Warriors guard’s season. Brooks talked Monday for the first time since Payton broke his elbow after a hard foul by the Grizzlies forward that sparked a debate about the NBA’s unspoken code. Brooks was ejected after he wound up and hit Payton in the head as the guard soared through the air early in the first quarter Tuesday night. The contact caused Payton to crash onto his left arm. The play had the Warriors fuming both when it occurred and after the game, with coach Steve Kerr saying Brooks “broke the code” and Stephen Curry saying the foul was “out of line.” And the league ultimately suspended Brooks for Game 3 on Saturday night for making...
    The NBA announced Thursday that Grizzlies wing Dillon Brooks has been suspended for Game 3 of Memphis and Golden State’s Western Conference semifinal series for breaking Gary Payton II’s elbow on Tuesday. It’s not enough. He deserved to miss the rest of the series. Brooks’ bush-league hack on Gary Payton II’s head as the Warrior guard went for a layup early in Game 2 Tuesday led to Payton breaking his elbow, in all likelihood ending his postseason. It wasn’t an accident. You can’t pass off Brooks’ hack as a poorly timed attempt that the ball. Brooks barely jumped and never came close to the ball. He wound up and no one can tell me he wasn’t aiming for Payton’s head. And while I don’t think Brooks’ goal was to seriously injure Payton, he certainly did something premeditated and unnatural on a basketball court that inherently carried the risk of injury. What did he think was going to happen? Related Articles Golden State Warriors | Kurtenbach: The Warriors need more from Klay Thompson to beat the Grizzlies Golden...
    Getty Dillon Brooks reacts to a play in a game against the Golden State Warriors. Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr is furious over an injury to his team’s defensive specialist and lashing out against the Memphis Grizzlies player responsible for it. Warriors guard Gary Payton II took a hard foul from Grizzlies’ guard Dillon Brooks in the first quarter of Tuesday’s Game 2, crashing to the floor and fracturing his elbow. The foul earned an ejection for Brooks and drew some very angry words from Kerr after the game. The latest Warriors news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Warriors newsletter here!

    FOX Sports’ Skip Bayless was stunned that Dillon Brooks of the Memphis Grizzlies was ejected following his hit on Gary Payton II of the Golden State Warriors in Game 2. Game 1 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies was highlighted by the ejection of Draymond Green, which caused a debate on Twitter. Sure enough, there was another ejection that highlighted Game 2. In the first half, Gary Payton II of the Warriors attempted a layup, but was struck in the head by the arm of Dillon Brooks. Referees issued a flagrant 2 foul on Brooks, resulting in his ejection. After review, Dillon Brooks has been assessed a Flagrant 2 foul for this play on Gary Payton.

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Memphis forward Dillon Brooks was ejected for a flagrant foul on Warriors guard Gary Payton on Tuesday night in the opening minutes of Game 2 in their Western Conference semifinal. Payton was going for a layup when Brooks chased him down and swung his arm, hitting the Warriors guard in the head. Payton went down and immediately grabbed at his left arm with 9:08 left in the first quarter. Officials reviewed the play and quickly ruled it a Flagrant 2, sending Brooks to the locker room. Brooks missed his first three shots after going 3 of 13 in Game 1. Brooks said after shootaround earlier Tuesday that he knew Memphis likely would’ve won the opener if he shot better. Brooks is Memphis’ top perimeter defender, and his job in Game 2 was to defend two-time NBA scoring champ Stephen Curry. Payton missed the first free throw, made the second. Then he went to the locker room. Then Draymond Green went shortly after to the locker room after he appeared to be...

(Photo by Justin Ford/Getty Images) The Golden State Warriors fell hard to the Grizzlies in Memphis Monday night, and one member of the home team felt the need to add insult to injury during the postgame press conference. Grizzlies guard Dillon Brooks spoke to the media following his team’s 123-95 victory over the Dubs and used the opportunity to take a shot at Andre Iguodala. The Warriors traded Iguodala to Memphis in June 2019, and the three-time champion chose to sit out until the Grizzlies decided to move him to the Miami Heat in February of the following year. Brooks clearly took Iguodala’s tactics as a slight and has not yet forgotten or forgiven them.

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Dillon Brooks seems to still be salty Andre Iguodala didn’t play for the Grizzlies during the 2019-20 season before he was traded to the Miami Heat. Speaking Monday night after the Grizzlies spanked the Warriors 123-95, Brooks reflected on how far the young team has come in just a few seasons while also taking a jab at Iguodala. “We all had the vision,” Brooks told reporters after the game. “He didn’t, which is perfect. Send him back to the Warriors and let him do his thing over there.” A chorus of boos roared through the home arena of the Grizzlies when Iguodala checked into the first quarter. Iguodala paid no mind to the taunting. And on his first possession, he sank a corner three and subtly shrugged as he ran down to the other end of the court. After the game, Iguodala dismissed the fans’ constant booing throughout the night. “This is the second time playing here, I think that’s just a part of how sports and fans have become,” Iguodala said. “They’re more into the games...
    Getty Dillon Brooks with Ja Morant. The Los Angeles Lakers capped off a poor preseason with another loss on Thursday to the Sacramento Kings. The team finishes the preseason with an 0-6 record. It’s a long season and the Lakers have many news pieces so they deserve time to figure things out. There are some concerns with the current roster, especially on the defensive side of the court. Anthony Davis and LeBron James are still very good defenders but can only do so much on their own. Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report believes the Lakers should trade Talen Horton-Tucker, Trevor Ariza and two 2023 second-round picks for Memphis Grizzlies wing Dillon Brooks: Horton-Tucker, who won’t turn 21 until late November, might be a half-decade away from playing the best basketball of his career. The Lakers don’t have that kind of time, so they could package him with a couple of second-round picks (plus Trevor Ariza as salary-filler) to pry Dillon Brooks away from the Grizzlies. Brooks would immediately address L.A.’s lack of defensive stoppers. Memphis tasked him with...

Memphis is going to have to start this season without him. Brooks is going to miss a few weeks due to a hand fracture, the Grizzlies announced. The @memgrizz today provided the following medical update on Dillon Brooks. pic.twitter.com/tUhPlESLS6 — Grizzlies PR (@GrizzliesPR) October 12, 2021 Brooks being out likely means more Desmond Bane to start the season, which is not bad for the Grizzlies. Brooks has been battling through an assortment of injuries this offseason and into training camp. He missed eight weeks of work this offseason when he fractured his hand in two places. He has had a sore right thigh that has kept him out of all the Grizzlies preseason games so far. Check out more on the Grizzlies...
    NBA Twitter went all caps crazy when Dillon Brooks put an exclamation point on the Memphis Grizzlies’ hot start against the San Antonio Spurs with a vicious dunk. To call the Memphis Grizzlies‘ start against the San Antonio Spurs in the play-in games a hot one doesn’t quite do it justice. The trouble for the Grizzlies? The Spurs responded with a furious second quarter to make it a game once more. Memphis made their way to the play-in with a 38-34 record. As the No. 9 team, they got the home-court advantage over the Spurs. However, a win on Wednesday would only get them as far as a matchup with the loser of the Los Angeles Lakers-Golden State Warriors game. The No. 8 seed and a first-round matchup with the Utah Jazz would be on the line. Whoever loses between the Spurs and Grizzlies will be eliminated from the playoff altogether. It’s no wonder Memphis came out with so much energy. The question is whether they can maintain it. Next: 3 Realistic Goals For The Grizzlies In The Playoffs
    Getty Memphis Grizzlies forward Dillon Brooks has been thriving since the Andre Iguodala trade last year. Andre Iguodala helped the Miami Heat advance to the NBA Finals last year in the bubble. Dillon Brooks scored 23 points on Tuesday night in the third quarter of a rather meaningless regular-season game. Potato, potahto. Tomato, tomahto. Brooks scored 28 points in 31 minutes and went a sizzling 5-of-9 from deep. It was almost as decadent as the steak dinner the 25-year-old enjoyed at Nusr-Et Steakhouse in Miami. Brooks shelled out $1,000 for a bone-in wagyu ribeye encrusted in 24-karat gold leaf, per Commercial Appeal. Then he put the hometown team, specifically Iguodala, on notice during a 124-112 win. Did Dillon Brooks finally show Andre Iguodala what Memphis is about? Dillon: “You could say that. He knows we have talented guys.” pic.twitter.com/TRlbfco6M5 — Drew Hill (@DrewHill_DM) April 7, 2021 After the game, Brooks was sheepishly tight-lipped about Iguodala. Remember, the three-time NBA champion refused to report to the Grizzlies last year and eventually forced a trade out of Memphis to...
    Photo by Ashley Landis-Pool/Getty Images The Memphis Grizzlies have a slight Dillon Brooks problem so far in the bubble. There’s no way around it: Dillon Brooks has been brutal for the Memphis Grizzlies in their first two seeding games so far. And while two games is an admittedly microscopic sample size, both contests were extremely winnable, and ultimately swung by one lackluster performer. Though the stats column will show he’s averaged an acceptable 15.5 points, 3.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game during the NBA’s official restart in Orlando, Brooks has been very inefficient over that span, shooting 6-for-16 in an overtime loss to the Portland Trail Blazers and 7-for-20 in Sunday’s narrow loss to the San Antonio Spurs. With both games being decided by a combined seven points, and Brooks shooting 36.1 percent from the floor and a dreadful 3-for-16 (18.8 percent) from 3-point range, it might be time for Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins to lightly suggest he ease up a little. Somebody on that bench or in that locker room HAS TO tell Dillon Brooks to stop...
