Perhaps the most impressive moment came in the closing seconds of the second quarter when he shot an unbelievable bucket right at the buzzer.
All in all, Morant put up a franchise-record 52 points and had the crowd cheering again and again.
Morant really is having that sort of season.
Morant For MVP
Fans of the Grizzlies’ star have repeatedly said that Morant deserves to be this season’s MVP.
After yet another performance like the one he has on Monday, it’s hard to argue that isn’t true.
Morant has a wild season average: 27.6 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 6.6 assists.
His Grizzlies are now battling for the top of the Western Conference after years of toiling towards the bottom of the standings – thanks in large part to Morant and the sensational season he’s having.
The point guard is easily the most important guy on his team and is having the sort of year that turns NBA players into league superstars.
But Morant cannot be overlooked, especially since Monday night’s showing was just one of many incredible games he’s had this year.
Morant is just on a whole other level this year.
