No matter what level they play is on, Ducks and Beavers don’t seem to be able to get along.

That idea was cemented earlier this week when former Oregon legend Dillon Brooks was ejected from the Memphis Grizzlies playoff game against the Golden State Warriors after a hard foul led to former Oregon State Beaver great Gary Payton II breaking his elbow.

Brooks’ foul drew a lot of ire from NBA Twitter, and it has now left him with a one-game suspension that will be served on Friday night as the Grizzlies and Warriors get set to play Game 3 back in the Bay Area.

After Brooks’ foul, some claimed it was dirty and deserved a multi-game suspension. Others waved it off as a hard foul that was worthy of a flagrant 2 ejection, but nothing more.

In the end, Brooks will have to sit for a pivotal third game of the series, with things knotted up at 1-1. As one of the more important players in the starting lineup for the Grizzlies, his absence with surely be felt.
