Ja Morant

Memphis Grizzlies came close to a big win Sunday as the Los Angeles Lakers narrowly defeated Ja Morant and Co. Despite his amazing game, Morant missed the chance to tie the contest with less than two seconds remaining.

Morant had an outstanding performance with 40 points and 10 assists on Sunday against the Lakers, continuing his impressive performances at the start of the new season.

After the game, Morant immediately took to Twitter and showed he’s ready to bounce back next game, after missing the game-tying free throw.

After Sunday’s performance, Morant is averaging 35 points through three games this season. The young superstar of the Grizzlies will look to bounce back Wednesday against Portland.
