Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant didn’t waste much time showing fans that he is healthy after missing Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers with a thigh pain.
Desmond Bane flipped the ball and stayed one on one while Avery Bradley, the Los Angeles Lakers security guard, walked the other way.
Morant was the trailer and flown in as he timed his jump and recorded a two-handed chase block from the backboard. His hands were on top of the square and he kept the ball in check and got the ricochet.
Bally Sports analyst Brevin Knight called it the best defensive game Morant has seen. It will likely be one of the best blocks of the 2021/22 season.
