Watch: “Locked that shit up, boy; I locked that bullshit”


The Golden State Warriors won Game 1 of their second-round series over the Memphis Grizzlies 117-116, thanks in part to a crucial Steph Curry save on Ja Morant.

With less than 30 seconds on the clock and a one-point lead for Golden State, Morant took the ball into the basket and got pinched by Curry. This resulted in a turnover and victory for the Warriors.

After locking Morant in to help his team beat the Memphis Grizzlies, Curry celebrated by shouting on his team’s bench:

“It’s locked, boy. I locked that.”

Curry’s reaction was strong enough that even game analysts could hear it.

While Steph Curry’s defense helped secure the victory for the Golden State Warriors, the team needed everyone to pull together after Draymond Green was ejected.

Jordan Poole put on a spectacular performance, recording a near triple-double of 31 points, eight rebounds and nine assists. Meanwhile, Klay Thompson made a clutch play to put the Warriors ahead and help them defeat Memphis.

The spectacular performance of the new “Splash Brothers” led to a crucial road victory for the Warriors to start their series against the Grizzlies.

The Memphis Grizzlies will have to regroup to find a way to win against Golden State, as the return of Draymond Green will only make it harder to win.

The fact that the Warriors overcame the ejection of one of their best defensemen and still won should give them a lot of confidence for the rest of the series.

Homecourt’s advantage now belongs to Golden State, which means Memphis will need to win at least one game on the road if it wants to win the series.
