Ja deletes 'broke the code' tweet on JP knee grab in Game 3

Ja Morant injury

Ja Morant didn't speak to the media after the Memphis Grizzlies' 142-112 loss to the Warriors in Game 3 on Saturday night, but a now-deleted tweet he sent roughly 20 minutes after the game spoke volumes.

Morant appeared to suffer a right knee injury late in the game, and a short time later, Memphis coach Taylor Jenkins insinuated that Jordan Poole grabbing Morant's right leg "triggered" the injury.

Morant shared a video of the play and wrote "broke the code," referencing comments from Warriors coach Steve Kerr following Dillon Brooks' Flagrant Foul Penalty 2 on Gary Payton II in Game 2.

The tweet was deleted soon after Morant originally posted it.

Poole was asked by reporters about Morant's tweet and defended his actions as a "basketball play."

Each game of the Western Conference semifinals has had some sort of controversy, highlighted by the 'dirty' Dillon Brooks Flagrant 2 foul on Gary Payton II, adding an extra layer of spice to Game 4 on Monday with his return.

Morant limped out of the arena and his status for Game 4 on Monday night is unknown. But the Grizzlies surely will be fired up in less than 48 hours, just as the Warriors had an edge after Payton's injury in Game 2.
