Grizzlies star Ja Morant shows off ridiculous hangtime with tricky bucket vs. Clippers
Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant can jump. If you need further proof of this fact that you have to check out this insane play from the 21-year-old in Thursday night’s bout against the mighty Los Angeles Clippers.
Morant showcased his ridiculous hangtime as he scored this eyebrow-raising layup after hanging in the air for what felt like an eternity (h/t Bleacher Report on Twitter):

Talk about hangtime, right? It literally looked like Ja took a seat mid-air as he stretched for the reverse lay-in. The extension is pretty impressive too for the Grizzlies star.
Morant has been on a tear of late, putting up some noteworthy numbers in his last five: 21.1 points (on 47.7 percent shooting), 6.0 rebounds, 7.6 assists, and 1.0 steals. Nevertheless, he hasn’t reached the heights of his outrageous 44-point explosion on opening night.
The Grizzlies have been rather impressive this season. They are currently sitting on a 13-14 record, which is good for 10th in a ruthless Western Conference. Right now, they are just two games behind the eighth-seeded Golden State Warriors.
If Morant is able to keep up his high level of play, it wouldn’t be surprising if Memphis ends up contending for a spot in the postseason towards the tail end of the campaign.
