We figured that the Warriors-Grizzlies series would be an emotional one, but it’s probably surpassed everyone’s expectations when it comes to the drama that’s been happening every game.

First was Draymond Green’s ejection in Game 1. Then Dillon Brooks’ Flagrant 2 foul on Gary Payton II in Game 2 that led to a fractured elbow for GP2, ejection and Game 3 suspension for Brooks. Then came Ja Morant’s injury in Game 3 and all the finger pointing. On Monday, the Warriors pushed their lead to 3-1 and Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins raised eyebrows with his comments about Draymond’s game-saving block on Jaren Jackson Jr.

Steph Curry added some more fuel to the fire of the series on Wednesday, with a quick three-word response to ESPN’s Kendra Andrews. During the team’s shootaround at FedExForum, Andrew asked Curry how the Warriors plan on closing out the Grizzlies.

“Whoop that trick,” he told her, stealing a line from the Grizzlies’ anthem.

Since the 2012 playoffs, the franchise and its fanbase has rallied around the 2005 Kapone song, “Whoop that trick” which was featured in the Memphis-based film “Hustle and Flow.” The song has taken on a different meaning from its original lyrics, as Urban Dictionary will attest.

Now the team blasts the song in FedExForum during games, getting fans of all ages hyped up.

Steph knows what he’s doing and apparently doesn’t mind poking the bear. Don’t be surprised if Curry gets booed heavily on Wednesday night, as the Grizzlies fans don’t wanna see the Warriors end Memphis' season in Game 5.
