Ja Morant (Memphis) shines in New York in the NBA

Despite the New York Knicks’ longstanding mediocrity, shining in Madison Square Garden remains a challenge for the NBA’s big names. Memphis point guard Ja Morant (23), one of the hottest young talents in the league, made his mark on the Manhattan temple on Sunday with a triple-double in the Grizzlies’ 127-123 win) that keeps them in touch with Phoenix and Denver rank third in the Western Conference.

Morant had 27 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds, the fifth triple-double of his pro career starting in 2019. An offensive rebound converted with twelve seconds left as New York got back in touch as the Grizzlies let fade a twelve-unit lead formed late in the third quarter.

At the end of the match, Ja Morant was faced with a strange dilemma. ” My father asked me to give him my shirt. He’s crazy, it’s the first time he’s asked me. But I was pissed because I already gave it to Derrick Rose “, said the hero of the evening, who thus paid tribute to the veteran playmaker of the Knicks (34 years), MVP of the NBA in 2011 under the shirt of Chicago, and whose bouncy game at the time is not without remembering that of Morant, who scored his third success in four appearances for the Grizzlies in New York. ” Everyone loves this room, all the lights are on you, so doing a triple double in the garden is crazy “added the leader.

Premier triple double pour Herro

Another fullback had a triple-double on Sunday. This is Tyler Herro, the Miami sniper. This is his first time. He had 11 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, but wasn’t exactly overwhelming on offense as he missed all eight of his three-point shots for mediocre 3-of-13 shooting. Miami then relied on its pivot Bam Adebayo (32 points) to win (106-98) in Atlanta where Trae Young (22 points, 14 assists) also did not aim properly (1 of 8 three-pointers).
