Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr. come to the rescue for the Grizzlies as they erase an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter. dailymemphian.com/section/sports… – 11:20 PM Damichael Cole @DamichaelC

Ja Morant on JJJ:

“Enough of me. Jaren is what everybody need to be excited about. His defensive presence is big time for us. We’re a totally different team with him out their on the floor.”

Just gonna share this story from yesterday 😮‍💨

commercialappeal.com/story/sports/n… – 11:20 PM Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett

“Enough about me…Jaren is what everybody can be excited about….That 4th qtr, that goes to Jaren.”

-Ja Morant

Morant also said again that Jaren is Defensive Player of the Year in his eyes and also needs to get more credit of what he can do offensively – 11:19 PM Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM

Ja Morant: “Enough about me. That’s fourth quarter was all Jaren.”

He said Jaren’s defense is what flipped the game. Also preached that he should be Defensive Player of the Year. – 11:17 PM Damichael Cole @DamichaelC

Felt like late in the third quarter when the Grizzlies scored those last six points that a comeback was very possible. Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. put on a show in that fourth quarter. Grizzlies eliminated a 15-point deficit in a big win.

Ja Morant scored 37 points – 11:01 PM Marc Berman @NYPost_Berman

#Knicks can’t stop Ja Morant as they collapse again in loss to Grizzlies nypost.com/2022/03/11/ja-… – 10:55 PM Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM

Ja Morant scored 10 straight for Memphis down the stretch (36 points, 8 assists). Jaren Jackson Jr. had five blocks.

Memphis outscored New York 31-18 in the 4th to pull off the late comeback. – 10:51 PM Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett

Grizzlies win 118-114.

-Ja Morant: 37pts, 4reb, 8ast, 1blk, 2stl

-Jaren Jackson Jr: 13pts, 4reb, 5blk

-Brandon Clarke: 10pts, 8reb, 4blk

-SEASON HIGH for the team: 16 blocks by 6 players

-72pts in the paint

-18 offensive rebounds

-18 2nd chance pts

-17 fast break pts – 10:46 PM Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon

Ja Morant just took this game over with sheer athleticism, will and skill. Scored 15 of his 37 in the fourth — 10 straight in clutch time — as the Grizzlies stormed back from 9 down entering the final frame to beat the Knicks. – 10:46 PM Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM

Grizzlies up 7 with under 1 minute to play. They trailed by 11 in the fourth quarter.

Jaren Jackson Jr. took over defensively, Ja Morant hit turbo for the offense. That = a thing of beauty for the Grizzlies. – 10:34 PM Fred Katz @FredKatz

Absolute takeover from both Ja Morant and the Grizzlies defense here in the fourth quarter. Ja has 14 points in the period and Jaren Jackson Jr. has been nothing short of spectacular guarding the paint. – 10:33 PM Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM

Jaren Jackson Jr. monster block leads to a Ja Morant fast break layup.

Volume in this place just went to 100+. Wild. – 10:28 PM Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies

Holy smokes, what a sequence from Jaren Jackson and Ja Morant.

That’s the vision. – 10:27 PM Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett

Ja Morant screaming “thank you…thank you” as he walks to the free throw line on the foul called on Quickley. – 10:27 PM Damichael Cole @DamichaelC

Ja Morant says “thank you” after getting the foul call while driving on Julius Randle. Knicks have a 33-19 free-throw advantage – 10:26 PM Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM

Ja Morant after getting a foul call going to the basket: “THANK YOU. THANK YOU. FIIIIIINALLY.” – 10:26 PM Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM

The Grizzlies are furious. Ja Morant goes crashing to the floor, no call. Goes back the other way and the Knicks hit a 3. Big swing. – 10:19 PM Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM

Ja Morant has completely flipped the switch on this game. Grizzlies mojo back instantly. Down 3. – 10:14 PM Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett

Even a whistle on the call couldn’t stop that momentum from Ja Morant! He still showed off the dunk! – 10:14 PM Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM

Ja Morant enters and immediately attacks. Came in at the 9:45 mark because, well, Memphis needs him out there. – 10:10 PM Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies

That Ja Morant fastbreak jam woke up the crowd – 10:01 PM Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett

The Ja Morant to Brandon Clarke connection is SPECIAL! – 9:08 PM Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett

Grizzlies up 34-30 after the 1st qtr.

Ja Morant: 11pts (5-9 FG), 3ast

Julius Randle: 15pts, 2reb, 3 3PM – 8:39 PM Tommy Beer @TommyBeer

Ja Morant looks fresh. His speed is already giving the Knicks problems. Vision is on display, too. – 8:22 PM Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies

Ja Morant just drilled a 3, which now puts him at 7 points within the first 4 1/2 minutes. Strong start for 12 – 8:17 PM Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM

Ja Morant throws the alley-oop to JJJ, then slams the tip dunk next possession. Good start. – 8:12 PM Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies

Ja Morant putback slam oooooooo weeeeeeeee – 8:12 PM Clay Bailey @claybailey9

Here are the starters for Memphis-NY Knicks.

Knicks: RJ Barrett, Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson, Evan Fournier and Alec Burks.

Grizz start Jaren Jackson Jr., Steven Adams, Ziaire WIlliams, Desmond Bane, Ja Morant. Set your fantasy lineups and betting plans accordingly. – 7:54 PM

More on this storyline

Tim Bontemps: Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins said Ja Morant needed to get an extra stretch in the locker room after he had his hip tighten up in the third. Said he’ll be sore tomorrow, but that was what led Morant to be able to come back and play the entire fourth quarter. -via Twitter @TimBontemps / February 25, 2022 Damichael Cole: Ja Morant is officially back pic.twitter.com/hseXFp35zv -via Twitter @DamichaelC / February 16, 2022 Meghan Triplett: Coach Jenkins said Ja Morant is still questionable. He got treatment this morning and will be a game-time decision tonight vs Portland. -via Twitter @Meghan_Triplett / February 16, 2022
