News 
 Along with the 20 points (7-15 FG, 4-10 3PT, 2-4 FT), Ja Morant had three rebounds, five assists, and one block, which isn't that bad until you notice he also turned the ball over five times.

Zion Williamson scored 23 points (8-17 FG, 7-8 FT) with 12 rebounds, seven assists, four steals, and six turnovers across 37 minutes during Tuesday's 108-103 win over the Golden State Warriors.

Wed, May 5th
 Ja Morant certainly showed up a lot of doubters Wednesday night. He finished with 37 points (14-25 FG, 1-2 3PT, 8-11 FT), along with four rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, and one block.

 The eight point showing is his second in three games. Ja Morant didn't do much else either with just five rebounds and six assists in a 14-point loss to the Knicks.

Notes 
 Ja Morant was terrific in his first-year campaign with the Grizzlies by winning the 2019 Rookie of the Year Award. He averaged 17.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.9 triples while shooting 47.7 percent from the floor across 31.0 minutes in 2019-20. The Grizzlies will rely on Morant to shoulder the offensive load and once again carry them to the playoffs. Morant will look build on his strong rookie campaign and is expected to go in the top-25 in upcoming fantasy drafts.
Brad Camara - FantasyPros
The 24 games Zion played as a rookie can easily get lost in the shuffle between New Orleans holding him out so long into the season and the chaotic spring and summer that ended in the Orlando bubble. In those 24 games, however, he was outstanding. He averaged 22.5 points and 6.3 rebounds a game, often in limited minutes. He logged a player efficiency rating (PER) of 24.1, landing him right between Nikola Jokic (24.9) and Trae Young (23.9). He should see a full allotment of minutes this season and is poised for a breakout season with the Pelicans.
