Grizzlies at heat
It’s fitting that the Grizzlies are playing at the Heat because of all of the HOT water the team has been in the last few weeks. Earlier today I got the Twitter notif that Ja has received his punishment from the league for the now infamous gun video.
Now Dillon Brooks thinks he needs to be a tough guy and is trying to start beef with anyone he see’s.
Not only that but the Grizzlies have lost key players due to injury in Brandon Clarke, who’s out for the season, and Steven Adams, who will be out at least a few more weeks before being reevaluated.
Honestly it makes me really sad to see everything that’s been happening with the Grizzlies but specifically all the Ja drama. I remember when I was a Junior in Highschool, and like I do every year I was dozing off on my couch whilst enjoying the best 2 days of the year: the first round of March Madness. I woke up about midway through the first half of 12-seed Murray ST. vs 5-seed Marquette, and what I witnessed the rest of that game was one of the most electrifying tournament performances I had ever seen. Ja Morant, who I had never heard of at that time, was one of the most fun players to watch on a basketball court. Still to this day one of my favorite tournament dunks (and call on a dunk):
I have been a Ja Morant fan ever since that day and it really sucks to see the path he’s been going down off the court (On the court he’s still as incredible as ever). I really hope he can get right and come back to the team so he can resume being the Ja that America fell in love with.
The Grizzlies are on a 3-game win streak, however, 2 of those wins came against the no-Kyrie, no-Luka Mavericks. With everything that’s been going on with the Grizzlies, especially with the news about Ja’s suspension this morning I think Miami rolls tonight and wins by double digits.
The Pick: Miami Heat -4
