Irving, a man who has been at the center of a storm or two in recent years, defended his friend.

"I think every difficulty builds character, especially when you face difficulties in a public way," he said.

"In my opinion, the criticism of Ja was excessive. The criticism of me was also excessive, and usually the criticism is excessive, in these field trials. Behind all the mess is a real person dealing with emotions, I care about that. I pray for his peace of mind. He has a career He has a long time ahead of him, and no one should control him but himself."

Morant joined his teammates last night for the first time since the suspension, to the delight of all the Grizzlies.

"He's taking ownership of this whole story and it's going to help him grow -- as a player and in general," claimed Dillon Brooks.

"You're going to see a completely different Ja, someone who will give us the energy to be the best team in the West."

The Grizzlies now have three straight wins and six of their last seven games.

When Brooks was asked if, then, it would be better for Morant to come off the bench, he replied: "Of course not. He proved everything that needed to be proved. I love him like a brother, he put this city on the map. We were a small club and now everyone is talking about us. We keep He is on him and he is watching over us."

As for Brooks himself, he picked up his 18th technical foul of the season (more than any other player), which would result in an automatic one-game suspension.

The guard, who has been involved in numerous incidents this season and has a great rivalry with Golden State, disrespected opposing player Theo Pinson, and made cheerleader gestures towards him - a hint that he is not a player at all.

"He was standing on the bench, but he needs to sit," Brooks said at the end.

"I wanted to make it clear to him that he is a cheerleader. He is paid to cheer."

"I'm working on it," Brooks said, when asked about his demeanor.

"Today it got a little out of control."

Among other things, he provided a juicy trash talk with Kyrie Irving, who did score 28 points, but finished the last quarter with 0 of 8 from the field and no assists.

"He said my defense was a gimmick," the Memphis player said.

"There is no doubt that I exhausted him in the last quarter."

At the end, Brooks asked Irving to change jerseys, and while the Dallas quarterback gave him the jersey,

Irving refused to accept the Grizzlies player's back.

"Maybe next time," he said.
