Trash speech heats up on rift in the making as Warriors top Grizzlies

SAN FRANCISCO - With 3:43 to go in the fourth zone, Klay Thompson outran Dillon Brook

to knock down a high jumper from 20 feet to put the Golden Nations Warriors up sixteen.

Brooks staggered back, falling into the path. As Thompson ran to the defense

 he leaned over Brooks, shuffling sideways three times as he thrust his tongue into Brooks' face.

Some appropriate old-school trash talk," Thompson said. "It's always fun to talk trash

We've been doing it since we were in college. You usually play it satisfactorily, otherwise you burn out

. For me, it's usually the former." Heading into the Warriors' 123-109 Christmas Day win over the Memphis Grizzlies

oth sides had been hesitant to call the connection between them a competition.
