Dillon Brooks said he didn't intend to injure Gary Payton II during the opening minutes of Game 2.
"It's in the past," Brooks said after the Grizzlies' shootaround before Game 4. "I didn't mean for it to hurt somebody. If I were to take it back in a moment, I would. But it's in the past."
Brooks also said he did not understand what Steve Kerr meant when the Golden State head coach said that Brooks "broke the code" by fouling an airborne player.
"No reaction," Brooks said when asked what he thought of Kerr's pointed comments. "I don't really even know what that means. It's the playoffs. Every bucket, every possession, every play counts. So I didn't understand what he meant by that."
