Grizzlies dance team not shy about trolling Stephen Curry before blowout win

Stephen Curry’s prediction that the Golden State Warriors would “shout out” backfired, and the Memphis Grizzlies are sure to take it.

Going into Game 5, Stephen Curry was a little overconfident that the Warriors would dominate Game 5.

In fact, Curry was so confident that he added some local flavor to his Memphis pregame prediction: The Warriors’ game plan was to “shout it out.”

The reference refers to a track from the 2005 film “Hustle and Flow,” in which an aspiring rapper recorded a song by that name. Curry cited Memphis to burn down the city, but the city burned him back.

The Grizzlies finished 134-95, catching the Warriors 3-2 in the series. Grizzlies fans didn’t let Curry live up to his embarrassing predictions.

During a fourth-quarter timeout, the Grizzlies’ dance team blew the hype as the song played on the speakers. All Curry could do was laugh, and Draymond Green went out of his way to join in the fun as he swung around his towel.

Grizzlies won’t let Stephen Curry live up to his ‘shout that trick’ prediction

While Curry handled his predictions as best he could, Green’s embrace of the celebration was unexpected. Green explained his decision to join in a postgame interview.

“They’re not going to rely on this trick alone,” Green said. “If we’re going to yell, we’re going to yell together.”

“One of the things I don’t respect is people who only bring in when they win games, or hug the crowd when they win games,” Green said. “We call it frontrunners. We’re not frontrunners, you know? We got kicked. Never mind, it happened. But you’re not frontrunners.”

“When you spit it out, you have to be willing to accept it — don’t run away from it, don’t run away from it, don’t run away from it,” Green continued. “Embrace it. I thank the audience tonight for the energy they brought to the game. If they want to shout, we will shout together.”

Green’s attitude was Golden State’s best way to deal with an embarrassing loss: The Warriors didn’t play their best basketball in Game 5, and that’s an inescapable fact. Ideally for Golden State, there would be no Game 6 predictions that would allow the Grizzlies to play again.
