Warriors star Stephen Curry’s 15-word assessment of Ja Morant ahead of seeding showdown
A lot will be at stake for Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. The Dubs are set to take on the Memphis Grizzlies in their final regular-season game in a matchup that will have major implications for both the Dubs’ and the Grizzlies’ postseason hopes.
Prior to the highly-anticipated matchup, Curry shared his honest thoughts on Memphis star Ja Morant, who himself has emerged as one of the brightest young stars in the NBA today. Nothing but praise from Steph here:
“Super athletic. Super crafty. Very confident. Seems like a gamer who just loves competition,” Curry said, via 95.7 The Game on Twitter.

Curry, who himself has been playing at a superhuman level these days, clearly had his game face on as he spoke highly of Morant and the 21-year-old’s skill set. The Warriors star may have been heaping praise on the youngster, but it is clear that Steph is ready to go to battle against the 2020 Rookie of the Year and his Grizzlies come Sunday.
The Warriors enter Sunday’s matchup tied with Memphis for the eighth spot in the Western Conference. Whoever wins that game will secure the eighth seed and will hold a significant advantage entering the play-in tournament.
It is worth noting that both the Warriors and the Grizzlies are coming off five-game win streaks, so these are currently two of the hottest teams in the league facing off against each other in arguably the most important game of the regular season for both sides.
The individual matchup between Stephen Curry and Ja Morant is obviously also something to keep an eye on. Expect fireworks.
