Draymond dances, Steph smiles to ‘Whoop That Trick' troll chants


Even while enduring the final quarter of an eventual 134-95 playoff loss on Wednesday night, Draymond Green and Steph Curry didn’t seem too concerned about where the Western Conference semifinal series stands.

During a Grizzlies timeout with 8:40 left in the fourth quarter, Memphis fans -- feeling boisterous while their team was leading by 46 points at the time -- began chanting “Whoop That Trick” at FexExForum.

Green began waving his towel around and dancing to the chants, while Curry was seen smiling at the crowd.

The chant was in reference to Curry’s comments to ESPN reporter Kendra Andrews ahead of Game 5 when he reportedly told her the Warriors’ mentality in Memphis was to “Whoop That Trick," the title of a song from the 2005 movie Hustle & Flow that has become a rallying cry for Grizzlies fans.

Clearly, Game 5 didn't go the Warriors' way. Golden State lost by 39 points, but the Warriors still hold a three-games-to-two lead in the series. And they'll have another chance to close out the series in Game 6 on Friday at Chase Center.
