Ja Morant isn't happy with the Memphis Grizzlies supporters after they went off on Grayson Allen for missing two clutch free throws that would have secured the win for the team against the Dallas Mavericks. The controversial player is having a very good season, improving his level in recent weeks but this time he failed to show up when his team most needed him.
After Luka Doncic hit a ridiculous 3-pointer to call game, the fans started criticizing Allen, who scored 23 points but couldn't do the job when the game was on the line. Luka worked his magic and the rest is history.
Morant didn't like the backlash his teammate received and he took to Twitter to defend Duke product.
"If you a Grizz fan & you're bashing any of my teammates. Go cheer for another team. Hundred points symbol boys played their ass off tonight. The reason we were in position to win the game."
Ja has demonstrated he can be the leader of this team and he's doing everything to defend his teammates and make sure they are fine. Allen has a big history of hurting players and having very bad attitudes towards opponents so fans always take their chance to trash him, whatever the reason is.
He mightily failed this time and cost his team the win but Ja wasn't having any of that. He knows these things happen in basketball and if Luka missed that 3-pointer, we wouldn't even be talking about that now. It was a very unfortunate situation but Morant doesn't think is such a big deal to bash one of the players.
