Ja Morant against the Lakers

On Sunday, the Memphis Grizzlies faced off against the Los Angeles Lakers. This game made people question if Morant is really a human? Because the way he flew all across the court makes it hard to believe. Maybe Morant has some hidden superpowers, and he’s not telling anyone about them. 

During the game, Ja Morant produced an unreal block of the season candidate. In the first quarter, the human highlight reel chased down Lakers’ Avery Bradley. Bradley was trying to score a three-pointer. Just as he went to layup, Ja leaped into the sky like Superman. Again, displaying his superhuman athleticism.

The 22-year-old managed to grab the ball with both of his hands and hit the backboard with his elbow. The fans have not seen a block like this in a long time. It set the tone for the game and made everyone know that the Grizzlies are here to play. Despite the efforts of LeBron James and the Lakers, the Grizzlies won the game. It was a 127-119 win for Memphis.
