The Memphis Grizzlies snapped the Golden State Warriors in half in Game 5 of their matchup in the second round of the NBA Playoffs. With Ja Morant watching from the sideline, the Grizzlies went up by as much as 55 points in a 134-95 loss.  They set a new franchise record that they had previously set just a few weeks ago.

While Jaren Jackson Jr., Tyus Jones and Desmond Bane led the way with 21 points and Steven Adams set the tone with 13 rebounds in 22 minutes, Dillon Brooks had a rather pedestrian 12 points on 5-13 shooting. This has been a theme for Brooks in the playoffs, as he is averaging just 13.1 points on 34.0 percent field-goal shooting and 31.8 percent 3-point shooting.

Those numbers are a far cry from Brooks’ 25.8 points per game in last year’s NBA playoffs, when the Grizzlies lost in five in the first round to the Utah Jazz. The man himself knows that he is not playing up to the potential he previously showed. He said after the win against the Warriors that he tries to do all the little things and play good defense.

Brooks’ disappointing play has done little to slow down the Grizzlies. They are two winss away from the Western Conference Finals despite losing Morant for most likely the remainder of the playoffs. Taking down the Warriors to get there would prove that they are more than just a young team on the rise.

Although Brooks may not have a firm place in the Grizzlies’ future because of his inconsistent play, he is providing some key energy as Memphis looks to make a deep playoff run.
