In Memphis they are happy. And that’s because the grizzlies are 3-2 up in the series against minnesota timberwolves in the NBA Playoffs. However, none of that could be possible if they didn’t have their megastar: Ha Morant. The young man – who seems to have springs in his feet – put a dunk in the fifth game that, for many, is the best of the year. And on top of that he nailed the double with which they won the match. A beast.
After that spectacular dump, Ja was not satisfied and went for more: he continued leading his team towards the comeback. The thing is At the end of the third quarter, Memphis fell 84-75, a difference of 11 points. But Morant put on the hero’s cape and permanently attacked the Timberwolves.
About the end of the match, Anthony Edwards he nailed a triple with which he tied the match 109-109. There were just three seconds left for the game to end and, from the Grizzlies’ bench, they called timeout to plot the play that could give them victory. The idea was pretty obvious: one way or another, the ball was going to fall into Morant’s hands. It remained to be seen how.
Memphis went easy and went with a screen for Morant to receive free. The point guard quickly got rid of Edwards and Jarrett Vanderbilt had to immediately come out to try to stop him. But Ja attacked him with an impressive jump and hit him twice in the face. He settled the game with a result of 111-109 and the public exploded.
With this victory, the Grizzlies win the series 3-2. Game 6 will be this Friday at the Target Center, the home of the Timberwolves. Will it define the Memphis series or will there be a seventh game?
