In the victory of the Golden State Warriors against the Memphis Grizzlies, Jordan Poole injured Ja Morant in the NBA Playoffs 2022, they showed him the foul live and this is how he reacted.
It’s a pity that people talk about that, he said. Stephen Curry. And yes… The show he gave Golden State Warriors against the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 3 of the semifinals of the NBA Playoffs 2022 was overshadowed by the controversial lack of Jordan Poole to Ja Morant.
The series between Warriors and Grizzlies is taking physical contacts to unthinkable limits and after the fracture of Gary Payton II and all three sent off in as many games, a new injury arrived. This time, Morant was the affected one.
The Golden State Warriors wanted to make a statement in the semifinal series against the Memphis Grizzlies and, despite having an advantage on the scoreboard, Ja Morant received a double tag from Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins to take the ball from him.
In a play that drew a forceful reaction from Stephen Curry, Poole grabbed Morant’s right knee and made a move that caused controversy in the NBA world. Ja exploded on Twitter before Jordan gave the version of what happened and deleted a message in which he stated that the Warriors shooting guard “broke the codes”.
Poole injured Morant in the Playoffs, they showed him the foul live and that’s how he reacted
Jordan Poole was handed a cell phone during the live press conference following the Golden State Warriors’ 142-112 win over the Memphis Grizzlies and after taking a few seconds to watch the foul with which he injured Ja Morant, this is how he reacted: “It’s a basketball play. We doubled it up, I hit the ball and I was going for it. Obviously I don’t want to see anyone get hurt. I’m not even that kind of player, I respect everyone. Hopefully he gets better and we can see him in the next game”.
