Looking at the standings, the game between the 10-22 Memphis Grizzlies and the 5-27 San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night might not look to be the most enticing matchup.
However, the NBA is a game of stars, thus the Grizzlies vs. Spurs game featured a duel between Ja Morant and Victor Wembanyama. The highlights of that match did not disappoint.
Morant attempted to confront the Spurs' rookie sensation in a one-on-one matchup in the first minute of the game by driving to the hoop.
Wembanyama, on the other hand, rejected the shot with nimble movement and unbelievably long arms.
Midway through the fourth quarter, the Grizzlies star went after the rookie again and made sure his shot wasn't blocked. Morant took a step forward with a crossover move and raced to the basket for a two-handed slam.
Some critics claimed Morant did not genuinely dunk on Wembanyama. Nonetheless, the majority of supporters were ecstatic about the confrontation.
It has appeared, over the course of the past few months, that Morant has begun to get his act together.
As seen by the upbeat comments that he has been posting on his various social media profiles.
