Ja Morant Appreciation Post
Ja Morant is a special player who does special things
Look, there are many stories that I could talk about in this post.
I could talk about how the shorthanded Miami Heat knocked out the Atlanta Hawks; Victor Oladipo’s amazing performance; or the silly beef between Kevin Durant and Charles Barkley. Or how both the Milwaukee Bucks and Golden State Warriors eliminated their first-round opponents.
But I don’t want to.
I want to just take this moment to appreciate Ja Morant, the 2022 Most Improved Player, by sharing two plays from the Memphis Grizzlies Game 5 victory.
1) Here’s how Ja ended the third quarter:
2) Here’s how Ja called game:
Ja Morant is currently averaging 20.5 points, 10.8 assists, 7.8 rebounds, and 1.3 steals a game in the first round against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Grizzlies are currently up 3-2 and one more win will take them to the semi-finals.
Do you think they’ll be able to put in the final nail against the Timberwolves in Game 6?
