Ja Morant had the game of his life against the Hoston Rockets. In that game, he had 26 points and eight assists. Morant was able to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a win against a big-time opponent.
Morant followed up that major victory with an impressive 16 point game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Morant was able to show his leaping ability on an alley-oop in the third quarter. He is becoming one of the most exciting players to watch with how he plays the game.
Morant is a favorite to win the Rookie of the Year award right now with Zion Williamson set to return soon. We will see if Williamson will do enough to beat out Morant for that award. Memphis is the hottest team in the NBA right now as they have a seven-game win streak and Morant is a big reason because of it.
