No one was expecting the Memphis Grizzlies to have that kind of impact, as the team is having the fourth-best record (25-14) in the Western Conference being on a six-game winning streak after Tuesday’s victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Ja Morant had another big game leading his team to a 110-106 win over Cleveland on the road. The superstar guard finished the contest with 26 points, six assists and five rebounds.

Afte the game, Morant spoke on his mindset going against bigger opponents, claiming he does not fear anybody.

“I don’t fear no body dawg. I don’t care if you 7’7 or whatever, I’m coming straight at you.”

That lack of fear helped the star guard navigate his team safely through the last 30 seconds of a close game against the pesky Cavaliers, scoring six consecutive points.

”It was definitely tough to get to the rim against their big guys, but I made some big shots to close it out,” said Morant. ”It’s a good feeling, knowing everyone has the confidence that I can do it.”

The Murray State product has been amazing so far, averaging 25.1 points, 6.7 assists and 5.7 rebounds through 27 games this season, shooting 40 percent from deep and 48 percent from the field.
