When it comes to the best point guards in the league, we seldom mention Ja Morant, despite his stellar second season. Ja Morant is currently averaging 19.2 PPG, 4.0 RPG, and 7.4 APG. Morant is certainly putting up amazing numbers and is quite possibly one of the most underrated point guards in the game. While he has some work to do before he reaches superstar status, the signs are certainly encouraging.
Ja Morant will be facing off against Stephen Curry and his Golden State Warriors on Sunday, in a matchup that will have massive implications for the postseason. Stephen Curry has recently praised Ja Morant for his abilities and highlighted his confidence and athleticism. That is high praise from the two-time MVP, and it is abundantly clear that Morant is extremely talented.
Stephen Curry might be the best individual player in the game when it comes to a Warriors-Grizzlies matchup. Though that may be true, Ja Morant and the Grizzlies are no pushovers, and it will certainly be a hard-fought matchup if Morant has something to say about it. While Ja Morant isn't as good as Stephen Curry, he isn't exactly going to back down. The Grizzlies have fought hard all season despite a serious injury to Jaren Jackson Jr. which kept him sidelined for the majority of the season, and Ja Morant has been their leader.
The Warriors-Grizzlies game will most certainly be exciting. While most people would probably pick any team with Stephen Curry to win the game, Ja Morant definitely has a shot of leading the Grizzlies to victory.
