What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Ian Begley @IanBegley
Here’s Eddy Curry on his new Players Tribune podcast with his wife Patrice & his relationship with NYK’s William Wesley & Leon Rose (an aside: Curry’s Players Tribune essay is worth reading for any NYK fan of his era):…1:08 PM

JD Shaw @JShawNBA
NBA’s best from May 13:
– J. Tatum: 46 pts, 9 reb, +21
– Giannis: 44 pts, 20 reb, 6 ast
– K. Thompson: 30 pts, 8 reb, 3 blk
– S. Curry: 29 pts, 7 reb, 5 ast
– D. Bane: 25 pts, 7 reb, 2 ast
– M. Smart: 21 pts, 5 reb, 7 ast
– D. Green: 14 pts, 15 reb, 8 ast – 11:01 AM
Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
Klay Thompson last night:
✅ 30 PTS
✅ 8 REB
✅ 8-14 3P
It’s the fourth time Thompson has made at least eight 3P in a playoff game, tying Ray Allen, Stephen Curry, and Damian Lillard for the most such games in NBA history. AM

Roland Lazenby @lazenby
As Tex Winter often told me, “You can hurry to a butt whipping,” which is what we see from so many teams today with sloppy, rushed play and bad shots galore. Bravo to those teams who can play like Steph Curry and the Warriors. Most can’t. Not efficiently. – 8:57 AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Curry said after his 3 with 5:43 left, the first thing he did when the Grizzlies timeout was go to Wiggins on the bench and scream at him that it was his 3 that got them going – 2:20 AM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Jaren Jackson Jr., Taylor Jenkins and Dillon Brooks have all said some form of this Grizzlies team being the most fun they have ever had in a basketball season.
JJJ: “You’re playing with your friends out there. We really rock with each other.” – 1:20 AM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Dillon Brooks on playing the Warriors and gaining their respect.
“We’re young, they’re getting old. They know we are coming every single year.” – 1:15 AM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Dillon Brooks: “100% (there’s mutual respect between the Warriors and Grizzlies). They know we are coming every single year. We are young, they are getting old.” – 1:14 AM

Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Mike Brown said it was Draymond Green and Stephen Curry’s final decision to start Kevon Looney.
“They looked us all in the eye and said that’s where we are going to get our confidence.” – 1:08 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Desmond Bane came out of first timeout of 4th quarter and hit that 3 to give Grizzlies 89-87 lead…
Warriors closed last 6.5 minutes of game on 23-7 run. Curry closed them out again, outscoring Grizzlies with 11 of those points in that stretch. – 12:43 AM
Mark Followill @MFollowill
One half of the Western Conference Finals is Golden State. Game 6 winners vs Memphis 110-96. Series winners 4 games to 2. Tonight – Klay Thompson 30 pts, Steph Curry 29 pts, Kevon Looney 22 rebs. – 12:41 AM
Drew Shiller @DrewShiller
The year is 2022. Steph Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and the Warriors are back in the Western Conference Finals. Dubs fans — don’t ever, ever, ever take this for granted – 12:39 AM

Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in true Game 6 form, mega hyped as they come up with big buckets in this 4th, pushing the Warriors lead to the largest of the night – up 13 on Memphis with 2:57 to go – 12:32 AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Curry, Thompson, Wiggins, Green and Looney huddle up near halfcourt. Looks like they’re closing with their starters. They are desperate for a couple stops – 12:27 AM

Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
That may have been the best 90-second stretch of Andrew Wiggins career. Killer catch-and-shoot 3, steal for a pick-six on Brooks, then a killer contest on Brooks the next time down at the rim leads to a run-out 3 for Curry. Second half from him has been enormous. – 12:25 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Dillon Brooks just gave the warriors an 8-0 run in 20 seconds. Amazing how destructive a guy he is to his own team on a night that he’s absolutely cooking – 12:24 AM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Andrew Wiggins made 3, Andrew Wiggins steal and dunk, Andrew Wiggins stop on Dillon Brooks in isolation leads to a Steph Curry transition 3. At the center of the biggest 7-0 run of the game. – 12:24 AM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Dillon Brooks is giving us the best TV ever. And Memphis is giving the Warriors a million chances to score. – 12:17 AM

Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Warriors lead 78-77 heading to the 4th in Game 6 as the Grizzlies win the 3rd quarter 26-25. Warriors plagued by turnovers now have a 16-5 differential with Memphis. Dillon Brooks 23, Desmond Bane 20 for the Grizzlies. Warriors led by Klay Thompson’s 27. – 12:10 AM
Sam Amick @sam_amick
The Warriors have 16 giveaways to Memphis’ four, yet are somehow still up by four. Oh, and that Steph Curry guy has missed 13 of 17 shots. Much-improved defense from Game 5 their saving grace so far. – 12:01 AM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
4-17 for Curry tonight. Since the first month of the season, he just hasn’t made the same 3s he has throughout his career. And if he’s not a 40% shooter on those shots, he’s not capable of leading a team to a championship. – 12:01 AM

Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
halftime came at the right time for me emotionally. That was intense. Grizzlies down 53-51.
Dillon Brooks with the hot hand w/ 18pts. Klay Thompson has it on the other end w/ 17pts. Warriors sure can turn the ball over (12) and the Grizzlies sure can score off of them (12pts). – 11:28 PM
Peter Vecsey @PeterVecsey1
Ja showed am appreciative smile to Curry for the slick move he made to the halo at the end of the half but could not convert. I luv that stuff!! – 11:27 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Warriors 53 Grizzlies 51
This has been some fun baksetball. The Grizzlies took a haymaker with GS making 11 of its first 20 threes. Memphis weathered the storm and even took the lead. Back and forth.
Dillon Brooks has 18 points. Klay Thompson has 17. – 11:26 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Frantic half from Steph Curry. Scattered dribble, a few bad turnovers, couldn’t find his shot. But he is aggressive and feel like the Warriors are getting him the looks/matchups they want. Feels like it’s on him to bring Warriors home in second half. – 11:25 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Could easily wind up being a situation where the worst thing that happened for Memphis was Dillon Brooks hitting some early shots. He went 6-for-16 in the first half, and 1-for-6 on 2s. – 11:25 PM

Mark Giannotto @mgiannotto
A heat check that went well, a heat check that went poorly, a technical foul and now a flagrant foul. We’ve hit for the Dillon Brooks cycle and it’s not even halftime. – 11:18 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Double technical fouls on Dillon Brooks and Klay Thompson. Last play by Brooks is under review to determine if it meets the criteria of a flagrant foul – 11:16 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Wiggins and Curry both would have had layups last trip … but for the fact that Memphis has two guys under the rim on every play because they aren’t guarding Looney or Green. – 11:10 PM

Peter Edmiston @peteredmiston
Dillon Brooks. What a damn response to his awful game the last time he was in this building. You can criticize Dillon for a lot of things but the guy has balls of steel. – 11:07 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Besides booing Dillon Brooks for his Flagrant on Gary Payton II in Game 2, Warriors fans are also booing Dillion Brooks for turning his bricks into makes – 11:07 PM

Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Dillon Brooks getting such heavy boos, and it only seems to be emboldening him. He’s up to 18 points in 12 minutes. Warriors’ nine-point lead down to one midway through the second quarter. – 11:06 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Dillon Brooks has scored 18 of the Grizzlies’ 43 points so far. He’s Memphis’ only player in double-figures. – 11:06 PM

Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Back-to-back made 3-pointers from Dillon Brooks ties the game at 16-16 midway through the first quarter. Boos emanating from the crowd. – 10:35 PM

Drew Shiller @DrewShiller
The Warriors involve Steven Adams out on the perimeter (which they should do 5,000 times tonight) and Curry drills the wide open 3 off the dribble hand off. Simple – 10:25 PM

CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Stephen Curry breaks the Warriors’ two-minute scoring drought with a 3-pointer, then Curry finds Green slicing to the rim for a layup. 5-4 Dubs early. – 10:24 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
The Grizzlies will be going against one of the great NBA folk heroes today.
Game 6 Klay Thompson
2019 vs. Houston (21 in first half) while Curry was held scoreless
2019 vs. Toronto 30 in 3 quarters before injury
2018 vs. Houston 35 points, 9 3s
2016 vs. OKC 41 points, 11 3s PM
