The injured Morant taunts Warriors Curry from the bench in Game 5

It was hard to blame the Memphis Grizzlies for taking absolutely every opportunity to clap back at Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry, who told ESPN the dubs’ schedule ahead of Game 5 in Memphis on Wednesday, ” Whoop that Trick” – a pot-pumping reference to the Grizzlies’ battle cry.

Especially after Memphis totally dismantled the visit to the Golden State in a 134-95 blowout that at one point looked like it could result in an all-time NBA playoff beatdown (thankfully the historic 58- 2009 New Orleans Hornets points loss for sure by evening). End).

Dillon Brooks rebuked Curry after the game.

The Memphis Dance Crew mocked him in-game.

And social media throughout, receipts in hand, verbally skinned the Dubs star, who fired just four shots and finished with a team worst plus minus of -37.

However, Grizzlies stud Ja Morant chose to poke fun at Curry for something entirely different: his 4-point game celebration.

Curry has 17 career 4-point games, and after a whole bunch of them he’s done the exact same thing:

At the start of the fourth quarter, with the Dubs’ deficit margin hovering around 50 points, Morant – who is still out indefinitely with a bone bruise in his knee – could be seen on the sidelines, with a smug expression, playing an over-the-top version of Currys characteristic celebration made .

Morant is now the second person to taunt Curry during a game this postseason. The first – mustachioed Nuggets fan fake crying under the basket – sealed Denver’s fate in Round 1 (Curry scored 53 points in the 6 quarters that followed the fake crying taunt as he shot 50% from the field) . Will it seal the Grizzlies?

We’ll find out on Friday when the Warriors host Game 6 at 7 p.m. at home in San Francisco, with a second chance to end the Grizzlies’ postseason.
