After Game 3 which saw the Golden State Warriors crush the Grizzlies (142-112), the Memphis coach accused Jordan Poole of injuring Ja Morant.
A decidedly complicated evening. On the night of Saturday to Sunday, as part of the NBA play-offs, Game 3 of the Western Conference semi-finals, the Golden State Warriors crushed Memphis (142-112), to regain control in this series (2-1). And at the end of this new meeting, Memphis Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins stepped up to the plate. The coach simply blamed Golden State Warriors guard Jordan Poole for injuring his star Ja Morant. On this subject, in remarks reported by theAFP, the technician thus declared in particular: “We watched the images in slow motion. Ja was dribbling and Jordan Poole grabbed his right knee with his hand and yank it. Which caused the sequel, so I’m going to be very curious to know what’s going to happen after that. »
Nature of Morant’s injury unspecified
This fault occurred at the very end of the fourth and last quarter, when the Memphis Grizzlies knew that they would not return to this meeting. Ja Morant then felt a pain, insofar as he thus began to shout of rage and frustration on the bench of the substitutes, before returning to the locker room limping. The nature of his injury has not yet been clarified. For his part, Jenkins certainly hopes, according to his words, that the Disciplinary Committee of the prestigious Basketball League takes over the file., if ever Ja Morant suffered an injury that would force him to give up Game 4 of this series, which will take place no later than this Monday. In this same game 3, the Grizzlies coach could not count on Dillon Brooks, suspended for a period of one game, after his big mistake, during the previous game, on Gary Payton II, victim of a fracture of the left elbow.
