The Memphis Grizzlies didn’t just beat the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night.
They actually chewed them up, spit them out, and then buried them in the dirt.
Game 5 ended with a whopping 134-95 win for the Grizzlies, giving them a massive victory right before the series heads back to California.
Memphis still has a lot of work to do to even the series – and then win it – but one person definitely believes it’s possible.
“GRIZZ IN SEVEN!”
Ja Morant let ’em know after the blowout in Memphis 🎤🗣

Following the triumph, Ja Morant took to the court to start a chant.
“Grizz in seven!” Morant bellowed into the microphone as the crowd cheered and his fellow teammates joined in.
Is this huge prediction for Memphis possible or is it just a pipe dream for the Grizz?
Warriors In 6?
The Western Conference semifinals now sit at 3-2 with the Warriors retaining the advantage for Game 6.
They need just one more win to end this series and end Memphis’ season.
Even though they were beaten badly, the Warriors won’t stay down for long and could bounce back in a huge way for the next game.
However, the Grizzlies are definitely feeling way more confident after their enormous blowout win.
So perhaps they could steal away a win and even the series.
If they do, they’ll be doing it without Morant.
He’s officially been ruled out for the rest of the season because of a knee injury and won’t be suiting up again until next year.
That is a devastating loss for the team but obviously, it didn’t slow them down on Wednesday night.
They swept the floor all night and decimated the Warriors.
Can they do it again in Game 6?
