The Grizzlies come in at 2-1 on the season behind the superlative-loaded player and superstar in the making, point guard Ja Morant. Morant leads the league in scoring, working the three-point shot more into his arsenal than before while being this generation’s most explosive guard off the bounce, making for a nightmare scenario for the Trail Blazers’ defense.
Through three games, the Trail Blazers are 1-2 but most of their play has been on the lesser side of the scale, with it tipping towards good when hitting truck loads of threes. This Blazers team has been missing the deep range bombing of Damian Lillard while CJ McCollum was a walking, talking, bucket-getting machine in two of the first three games. Nothing went right for Portland against Paul George and the Los Angeles Clippers, so will they get it back on track tonight and bring their record to .500 at 2-2? Or will the same bad habits that have been there through 3 games rear their heads again as they face a downhill monster in Morant?
Tune in, hang out and get involved in the conversation!
