For an NBA playoff game, it got about as ugly as it gets for the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night against the Memphis Grizzlies.

In Game 5, the Grizzlies stormed to a blowout victory over the Warriors to force Game 6 and move the series to 3-2. Although the game finished with a 39-point differential on the scoreboard, the final score doesn’t do it justice. The Grizzlies never trailed and led by 52-points at the end of the third quarter.

Without Ja Morant, the Grizzlies had players like Jaren Jackson Jr., Desmond Bane and Tyus Jones step up, scoring 21 points each. Four other members of the Grizzlies tallied double-figure scoring efforts during the rout in Game 5.

While the Grizzlies got hot, the Warriors didn’t do themselves any favors on Wednesday night. Golden State turned the ball over 22 times. The Warriors also got outrebounded 55 to 37.

Following the Warriors’ embarrassing loss in Game 5, the NBA community on Twitter exploded with a flurry of reactions. Here’s a look at what fans and analysts were saying on Wednesday night.
