Watch Grizzlies' Ja Morant kick off preseason with a thunderous, one-handed dunk
If anyone thought Ja Morant would take it easy in the preseason, Morant proved them wrong Tuesday.
Morant's first dunk of the Memphis Grizzlies' preseason came in the third quarter in transition where he drove down the lane and threw down a strong, one-handed dunk. Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez wisely moved out the way after Morant tried to dunk on him in the first half.
It was one of several highlight moments in the third quarter for Morant. The Memphis Grizzlies guard also had a one-handed dunk on a fastbreak and added a reverse dunk off an outlet pass from Kyle Anderson.
Just another day at the office for Morant, who was in usual high-flying form with a national audience watching on TNT. He might not ever compete in the slam dunk contest but he'll give fans a show during Grizzlies games.
