Grizzlies vs. Warriors score: Ja Morant erupts for 47 as Memphis outlasts Golden State in Game 2 to tie series

The Memphis Grizzlies failed to hold off the Golden State Warriors at home in Game 1 of their second-round series. Ja Morant and Co. make sure it doesn’t happen again in Game 2 as they survive for a 106-101 win Tuesday night. Morant leads all scorers with a playoff career-high 47 points as the series is tied 1-1. Game 3 is set for Saturday in San Francisco.

Stephen Curry posts a team-high 27 points on a night where Memphis’ defense holds Golden State to just 18.4 percent shooting from 3-point range. Jordan Poole adds 20 points in the loss.

In what was a very physical contest from the start, Dillon Brooks was issued a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected early in the first quarter after a scary hit on the Warriors’ Gary Payton II, who was forced out of the game with an elbow injury. Also, Draymond Green caught an elbow to the face and let Memphis fans know exactly how he felt about them on his way to the locker room with a pair of middle fingers.
