Grizzlies parody 'The Warriors' to hype Game 3 of playoff series

Thursday May 7th, 2015

The Memphis Grizzlies released a video to hype ticket sales for Saturday's Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals series against the Golden State Warriors, choosing to parody a famous movie quote that just so happened to be perfect for their opponent.

After losing Game 1, the Grizzlies got a rare road win at Oracle Arena to even up the series 1–1 as it heads to Memphis. They may be going up against the NBA's best record, but the Grizzlies are feeling quite good about where they stand heading into Saturday.

If you’re a fan of the 1979 cult thriller The Warriors, this will resonate:

Shaq's halftime fall is the Internet's new favorite meme

The masked Mike Conley superimposed over the face of the character Luther was deftly done.

The Warriors thought it was so clever they weren't even mad.
