Draymond Green ahead of Game 2: “I think it’ll get a lot more physical but not testy or nasty because we’re not a testy and nasty team and they’re not a testy and nasty team. … Memphis is a testy and nasty team, but that’s not who Dallas is and that’s not who we are.”

Grant "Batman" Williams in Game 2 against the Miami Heat: 19 points and 4 rebounds. He shot an astonishing 71.4% on the floor and shot 100% from 3-point land (2/2). He ended with +37.

Vengeance proved last game that he is an important part of a contending team.

The Dork Knight, who was compared to Heat's own PJ Tucker, showed that he as well falls in the category of Tough Guy with his stellar defense.

Why is he called Batman?

On March 20 against the Denver Nuggets, Jaylen Brown said that Grant Williams wants to be called Batman because he defended the then MVP frontrunner (Now MVP) Nikola "Joker" Jokić pretty well.

Jayson Tatum in Game 2 vs Heat: 27/5/5 on 8/13 shooting, 4/6 from 3, 7/7 FT

643 Upvotes

Jayson Tatum rebounded from a bad second half in Game 1 where he continually turned over the ball. Tatum had his way in the first half, while in the second half he welcomed the double teams, opting to pass.

He also just played 31 minutes, much to the relief of Celtics fans. Tatum has been logging insane minutes these playoffs.

“Gary’s absence is a big deal in this series.”

Steve Kerr mentioned the loss of Gary Payton II when asked about possibility of Jonathan Kuminga guarding Luka Doncic in Western Conference Finals

https://twitter.com/957thegame/status/1527067820730724352

He spent a lot of time guarding Doncic in the regular season. That's one fewer option.
