Memphis Grizzlies’ Ja Morant and Fred VanVleet of the Toronto Raptors were named NBA Players of the Week (Week 12).
The explosive Morant remains the solid pillar of Memphis’ sudden emergence this season, sitting as the 4th seeded franchise of the highly-competitive West. The 2020 Rookie of the Year tallied an average of 25.0 points, 6.3 rebounds and 6.8 assists while leading his team to an unblemished 5-0 record week.
On the other hand, the hot-handed VanVleet was remarkable for the 4-0 Raptors, leading the way with 30.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 6.5 assists. He charged Toronto to a much higher standing this 2021-2022 campaign, now at the 7th spot in the East with a 20-17 card.
