VIDEO: Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant almost jumps over Kevin Love for monster dunk attempt

Ja Morant, Grizzlies

Memphis Grizzlies rookie point guard Ja Morant keeps adding more to his collection of dunk victims. This time, it was Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star power forward Kevin Love.

During the two teams’ Friday night matchup, the 20-year-old uber-athletic floor general nearly posterized the one-time NBA champion. Unfortunately, it failed to connect with the hoop.

Last week, Morant dunked all over center Aron Baynes in the final minutes of their game against the Phoenix Suns. This is a continuing theme in the Murray State point guard’s young professional tenureā€”a relentless pursuit to go over opponents and finish for thunderous dunks.

Morant returned last Monday after missing four games with a back spasm and has picked up the pace since. The second overall pick from the 2019 NBA Draft is averaging 19.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 7.0 assists per game in the five contests he has appeared in since his injury.
