The Memphis Grizzlies have won just one game in this series so far, despite being the higher-seeded team. Even though Ja Morant has averaged 27.3 points, 7.3 assists, and 6.3 rebounds in the three games he s played, the only game the Grizzlies won has been without him. Ja, however, hopes to alter that narrative tonight. The dynamic guard is ensuring that the #2 seed advances at least as far as round one.
So far in the game, Morant has 25 points, 6 rebounds, a steal, and an assist. Both offensively and defensively, he has been outstanding. He just made a charge against Jarred Vanderbilt, as we observed.

Ja Morant once again proved to be a complete entertainer by outplaying Anthony Davis and LeBron James.

Everyone is aware of Ja Morant’s explosiveness as a player. Even though he is suffering from a knee injury, that does t stop him from going full speed against the best of the best. Ja attempted to jump over LeBron for a shot in the previous game. He failed and was assessed a charge.
LeBron takes the charge vs. Ja. 😳

Tonight he corrected his mistake and made sure he got enough elevation over the King. Tyus Jones gave the alley-oop pass, and Ja rose over Bron to tip the ball in the basket.
Not only did Ja score over the 6ft 9 LeBron James, but he also did the same to his 6ft 10 teammate Anthony Davis. After Desmond Bane missed a three, Ja got one of his two offensive rebounds and rose over AD for the putback dunk.

Exceptionally impressive. It will never cease to amaze me how a 6ft 2 guard has a bounce like that.
