Ja Morantstar base of the Memphis Grizzliesis once again the great protagonist of the best plays of the night in the NBA and this time he does it twice, demonstrating, in addition, that he not only knows how to crush the rival rim but also can be a threat from the outside.
In the first play in which Morant is the protagonist, he loses the ball in the attacking field, recovers it and after crossing the center line of the field he scores a triple from more than nine meters, at the height of the Grizzlies logo. The point guard left his stamp on the top again, although in his second appearance he did it with a trademark flight to finish crushing an alley oop.
Ja Morant, with 24 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, guided the victory of the Grizzlies that are second in the Western Conference. A new display of might that earned him praise from Shaquille O’Nealwho recognized the point guard as the best player in the league today.
The legendary pivot revealed the conversation with the Grizzlies player on television: “You should have seen the look on this guy’s face when I told him he’s the best player in the NBA. I told him he wasn’t kidding. “You really are the best. I promise you.”
