The Warriors defeated the Grizzlies on Saturday 142–112 to cruise to a 2–1 series lead. However, the tension that occurred in the game continued after the final horn blew.

Ja Morant had to leave the game with a knee injury he apparently suffered when Warriors guard Jordan Poole grabbed Morant’s knee while going for the ball. After the game, Morant twitter then deleted a tweet that showed he was not happy with the Warriors.

“‘Broke the code,’” he tweeted.

“The code” is a reference to Steve Kerr’s reaction to Dillon Brooks’s hard foul on Gary Payton II in game 2. After that game, Kerr said Brooks “broke the code” by fouling Payton in mid-air, something Kerr believes is a dirty play.
