Ja Morant is the first player in Grizzlies franchise history to score 50+ points in a game. He set the previous franchise record for points in a game with 46 points in their last game on 02/26/2022 vs. The Bulls.

Hope this guy has a long and healthy career. He is so fun to watch. Truly special.
He’s going to win an MVP one day. This kid has got it all. Going to be dominating the league for a long time.
Bro really might be the Future of the NBA 💯🔥

This is the most entertaining 50+ point performance and one of the craziest single game highlight reels I’ve ever seen. Long bomb 3, buzzer beater full court alley oop jump shot, dunk from edge of paint over a 7-footer, and 50 points on only 4 FTM …IN ONE GAME?!?!? Ja is unreal.

Every single NBA franchise now has had someone score 50 points in a game after tonight. Congrats, Memphis. You guys are a legit threat to the Warriors and Suns.

He probably said to himself “damn I’m on fire” when he caught that inbound lob.

Ja morant is in his own category. Jumps out the gym , stops on a dime , can hit any shot, foot work is smooth , humility on 100%, consistently progressing. What a great role model for the city of Memphis! Rooting for this young squad they are special. - suns fan

His playstyle reminds me of a young DRose during his 2011 MVP season. Hope he will have a long and healthy career ahead. If he keeps it up, he will definitely be a future MVP and a future HOF.
His teammates feeding him at the end proved that he's a leader.
While Ja - again! - is showing real MVP moves here I wanna take the time to appreciate Steven Adams. What an eye, passing skills, team play. Memphis is lucky to have him!
Ja is hands down my favorite player currently. The fact that this man got injured and then dropped a career high not even a week later. The commitment to the game is beyond elite. I definitely feel he is one of those special player with tha “mamba mentality”

Starting to become my favorite player in the league. I respect his game I'm tired of seeing new players shoot 3's attack the hole!

Every time I see him he just keeps getting better, this is insane!
He had 6 buckets in one game that not a lot of players put in their entire career
J C:
2:16 how is no one talking about how crazy this shot was! he had the nasty dunk I have seen all season in this game....and I still think this shot was more impressive! absolutely extraordinary
Reginald Wilson
Reginald Wilson:
Morant has been unbelievable this season, back to back career high points. 46, and now 52 bruh I can’t believe we have a superstar in the making of the Grizzlies franchise. I have never doubted Morant since he came to the league
Walter Capili
Walter Capili:
I'm an instant fan of Ja Morant. Just amazing athlete. Stay healthy, don't get injured.
Cameron Williams
Cameron Williams:
Ja Morant reminds me a bit of a smaller version of a young 80's MJ. The way he runs on a forward angle like he's shot out of a cannon...the way he attacks the defense. And the way he contorts his lean frame around the defense. He will feast on the gaps between players marking space in zone defense all day long. Unless they have someone lock him down man on man. Which no one does anymore. If he could play great defense loading up on steals and a few blocks with that athleticism he will probably win multiple MVP's in his career as his team is already on pace to probably win 60 games in year 3. And I love the fact he doesn't think he is Steph Curry mkII like so many others do. He's not jacking up 15 3's a night and killing his team the nights he doesn't make them like others do. He respects the value of 2pts.

Damn! Ja Morant makes the Memphis Grizzlies relevant again, last time Memphis Grizzlies good way back in Grit and Grind era when M.Gasol,Zbo,Conley and Toney Allen was there. Ja Morant is not just a superstar, he's a mega star.

This is a very competitive MVP race. A lot of styles are returning and making impacts. NBA looking more diverse again. Midrange, Big Men, Athleticism, and the three-point shot becoming more grounded.

More actions from Ja's highlights than the whole All Star weekend😂😂😂

Doing it at Home in front of the crowd 🔥 I kno he was hyped after and the fans got what they paid for 💪🏽
That dunk on no 25 is nasty 😱💪🏿

I live about 15 minutes south of Memphis and it's been a pleasure watching this kid. He's just amazing and hope he stays healthy. That buzzer beater was incredible....but that dunk tho? Oh that was NAAAAAAS-TEEEE! Good Lord that was nasty

Wallace Callahan:
Congratulations Ja you are an amazing basketball player, I hope you and the Grizzlies stay healthy and make plenty of noise in the playoffs go for the mountain top!

One of the best highlight reels I've seen in a long time! Straight Mamba Mentality!!!
I was telling people about Ja back in his rookie year when everyone was still on Zion's jock. Even some of the Memphis ppl I talked to, I think, didn't really understand what kind of talent we picked up in the draft. This makes up for all of the years of bad drafts for Memphis, it feels like watching the rise of Golden State all over again, all done from the ground up.
James Ro
James Ro:
This is very similar to how I felt watching The great Jordan in a full game. Every scoring was a highlight. I see potential mega star here.

Can't decide which one was more impressive : the dunk or the catch and shoot at the end of the half ..

I swear this kid jumped off the 90s NBA era !
Matt Goldberg
Matt Goldberg:
I've watched a ton of hoops: The play before halftime -- A catch of a full-court pass (nice job, Adams) and twisting shot while falling out of bounds -- is one of the best plays I've ever seen!
Mon Sims
Mon Sims:
Happy for Ja! Dude should take care of his jumps and landings. Memories of Derrick Rose but I hope not the injuries.
Jay Carter
Jay Carter:
This game officially elevated him to Superstar status💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾

He has the potential to be the best Grizzlies ever.
Ja on the road to becoming the greatest grizzly and I’m here for it 🔥

I have never seen any player move like that. It's so different.

Its gonna be a sad day when Lebron KD Steph CP3 and guys like that are all out of the league, but Ja Luka Book Tatum got me looking forward to watching how great this next generation will be when they hit their prime

“ as the kids say …. He caught a body “ 😂😂😂 I enjoyed hearing that more than seeing the dunk
Just really special and we didn’t anticipate it like this. He, Book, Doncic, Tatum are for sure making the top 100
This dude is 6'1"!!!!!!

And only 21!


What a truly AMAZING athlete!!!!
As a Van Griz fan.. Watching Ja play makes me sad but incredibly happy at the same time.
This is a futur NBA legend, so talented and so fun to watch !
Keith Benge
Keith Benge:
I have watched a lot of basketball in my life, but Morant is the most exciting player to come into the NBA since Michael Jordan in my opinion, and I don't mean that as a slap against anyone else. Also I love the way his teammates are unselfish enough to allow him to showcase his talents. My congrats to the entire Memphis organization. They have built a team that will be a contender for many years if they can stay healthy. My new favorite team.

Best finisher at the rim in the league. He is amazing in the paint.
When Ja came in the league, I called him Baby Bron. Dude is athletic, smart, can pass, will make the wide open shot, and can’t stop him in the paint often
Remember seeing JA play as a rookie just once and damn was my ass spot on knowing he’d be a special 1 in da league. Good shit..
I need a deep grizzlies playoff run 😭 It was only a matter of time
