Jonathan Kuminga trolls the Grizzlies;  Ja Morant applauds after Warriors win

The Warriors’ streak against the Memphis Grizzlies is over, but the trash talk between the players involved is still going strong

After the Warriors closed out the Western Conference Semifinals with a 110-96 victory in Game 6 on Friday at Chase Center, rookie Jonathan Kuminga trolled the Grizzlies with a postgame tweet.

Ja Morant, the injured Grizzlies star, hit back at Kuminga, telling the rookie that he first needed to “earn some stripes” before he could talk about this conversation.

Curry’s comments came back to bite him, as the Grizzlies blew the doors off the Warriors in Game 5 134-95, resulting in numerous internet memes as well as the FedExForum crowd chanting the song throughout the fourth quarter of the league. ‘eruption.

In the end, Kuminga and Morant are just having fun on Twitter after a hard-fought streak. Morant did not appear in the final three games of the series after injuring his knee in Game 3, while Kuminga started in Games 3, 4 and 5 but did not play in the game at all 6.

Ultimately, the Warriors head to the Western Conference Finals and the Grizzlies begin their vacation plans. But there’s already plenty of fuel for the fire whenever the two foes meet for the first time in the 2022-23 season.
