Ja Morant recorded 16 points (7-13 FG, 0-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), one assist, and two turnovers over 27 minutes in Thursday's 124-97 loss to the Clippers.
The Clippers blew the game open with a 40-14 first quarter. Morant and the other starters were limited to less than 27 minutes. Unless someone emerges in the frontcourt during Jackson Jr.'s time away, defenses will continue to harrass Morant. The Grizzlies play the Rockets on Wednesday.
