Ja Morant has been impressive all season long, but every time he plays, he just surpasses his previous feats. Atlanta Hawks sharpshooter Trae Young witnessed that once again during the Memphis Grizzlies showdown with the San Antonio Spurs.
Young, who is enjoying a two-day break with the Hawks, took to Twitter to share how impressed he is with the way Morant played against the Spurs. The Grizzlies star’s full arsenal was in full display, giving Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio franchise all sorts of headaches.
Morant couldn’t help but say Morant was “going stupid” in the game with his all-around exploit. At halftime, Morant already had 29 points, sparking such unbelievable reaction from his peers.
JA going stupid right now🔥

If there is one play that perfectly describes Ja Morant’s game, it is probably his insane buzzer-beater off a full-court inbound pass from Steven Adams with 0.4 seconds left. It’s just too crazy not to highlight and perfectly sums up how the showdown has been for him throughout.

Ja Morant ended up with a career-high 52 points as the Grizzlies easily handled the Spurs, 118-105. The Spurs managed to close it out a bit in the final period, but the youngster was just impossible to contain.
Aside from his 50-piece, Morant also had seven rebounds. He shot 22-of-30 from the field, including a perfect 4-of-4 from 3-point line.
The 22-year-old undoubtedly deserves all the recognition he gets, and it won’t be surprising if he shocks everyone again in their next game.
