By Ponciano Melo – Former Rookie of the Year JaMorant has been nothing but JaW dropping in his first NBA postseason run, and we are still in the first round of the playoffs.
The young star of the Memphis Grizzlies has already made three records on his first three playoff games.
He became the highest pointer by any player 21 years old or younger in a playoff game.
The 2019 second overall pick scored 47 points in Game 2 against the top-seeded Utah Jazz. Despite the loss, Morant’s outing overtook LeBron James’ 45-point performance in 2006 to record the most points.
His next record was becoming the fourth player to score 100 points or more in his first three playoff games.
Morant joined an elite company in the group: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, and George Mikan.
He has been showing his hot offensive arsenal as they continue to fight as the underdog.
And his last one was the best individual performances by a Grizzlies in franchise history. Yes, you read it right. In his second year in the NBA, Morant has already become the best in individual feats. He’s calibrating into a whole new level since they fought the last seed for the playoffs by eliminating Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors in the play-in tournament
