For the Grizzlies, which the Warriors eliminated from the playoffs on Friday night, no two miracles took place. The franchise is still making great efforts, except that some players have changed the situation on the Golden State side. Draymond Green and Steph Curry are responsible for this, with their request to Mike Brown.
After a historic defeat and maybe one of the worst in historyThe Warriors had to react absolutely this Friday to avoid Game 7 against Memphis. The mission is accomplished for Mike Brown’s men because Steve Kerr was still absent because of the covid. Fortunately, the coach should be able to return to the next round and wait for the winner between the Suns and the Mavericks.
Good news for the Dubs, who will primarily benefit from the victory over the Grizzlies, which was not necessarily obvious. The final score is 110-96, with Dillon Brooks at 30 points for Memphis. The player eventually decided to wake up, but for the most part it was not enough to dream longer. It must be said that, on the other hand, the horses were released by Klay Thompson with 30 units, including a huge 8/14 behind the arch. Steph Curry despite a risky 10/27 in shooting, he finished with a total of 29 points.
The X factor that changed everything in Dubs!
However, the leader’s influence sometimes extends beyond the floor and we could see it before the start of game 6. There was a significant change in the top five when Kevon Looney returned. Pivot did very badly, because of course he made 4 points, but above all 22 rebounds (career record), including 11 offensive. We add 5 assists and we get a very good performance, which he owes to Curry, but also to Draymond Green, who requested his presence on the floor.

The fact is, Draymond and Steph asked him to be there. Our task is to make players feel confident. Dray carried this team for years, as did Steph and Klay with their filming. But what Green did is crazy.
Mike Brown admits this, so he is not responsible for Looney’s return, who, however, changed everything in this game 6. Green was very confident, as was Curry, and asked for the return of the pivot. Very good decision, because Steven Adams did not exist in the front with 4 points and 10 rebounds. However, another player can be picked up: Andrew Wiggins.

The unsung heroes of the Warriors in their Game 6 win over the Grizzlies:
Andrew Wiggins: 18 points, 10 rebounds, 3 blocks
Kevon Looney: 4 points, 22 rebounds, 5 assists
That job is done at the Warriors, and it’s still the most important thing. Kevon Looney and Andrew Wiggins shone in the best of times and allowed Golden State to move to a new round of playoffs. There is no doubt that if everyone is in good shape, the franchise can dream of a possible title.
