Dray, Ja react to reported Warriors-Grizzlies Xmas Day matchup originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
And Morant clearly can’t wait.
Green and the young Grizzlies star have gone back and forth in a series of Twitter exchanges that seemed to have fueled the fire in an already-steamy enmity between the Warriors and Grizzlies.
And although they’ve denied any “rivalry,” it’s clear that this reported matchup is the one both teams wanted on Christmas Day.
Green also responded to the report, crediting Morant for being vocal about what he wanted.

In June, after the Warriors won their fourth NBA championship in eight seasons, Morant responded to a tweet implying that a Golden State-Memphis matchup in San Francisco is secured for Dec. 25.
But Morant suggested bringing the holiday cheer to Memphis.
However, as we have come to learn, thanks to LeBron James, that’s not how things work.
