Ja Morant dropped 26 last night on a hyper-efficient 10-of-11 from the field, going 3-of-4 from deep and sinking all three of his free throws. He added five rebounds, eight assists, a block, and a steal over his 27 minutes on Tuesday night.
Morant led the team in points and minutes as he continues to blossom as a legitimate NBA point guard. He's averaging 20.3 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 8.9 assists for the month of January which is pacing as his best month of his rookie season. If he could keep this pace up, he'd be a top-10 point guard for the remainder of the season. The electric rookie should be on your radar for a trade if you can pry him away from his owner. He'll hope to keep the momentum going when the Grizzlies face the Cavs Friday night.
