For SportsCenter: The Grizzlies were less than two minutes away from stealing Game 4 but they sorely missed the leading scorer in clutch time scoring this postseason. Will they have Ja Morant for Game 5? PM

sam amick @sam_amick
The Grizzlies were 20-5 without Ja Morant heading into last night, and the Warriors saw why. They’re a MUCH better defensive team without him. More analysis here, at @TheAthletic… – 12:18 PM

def one of the worst feelings for me but proud of my brothers 🤞🏽🐻 – 1:45 AM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Tyus Jones on letting the lead slip in the final minute and now going into Game 5 potentially without Ja Morant:
“It’s a tough one. This is a tough pill to swallow.” – 1:18AM

COLUMN: The Memphis Grizzlies couldn’t close out the Golden State Warriors without Ja Morant and this series could be close to over.… – 12:56AM

Meghan Triplet @Meghan_Triplett

Grizz lead by nine early in the fourth without Ja Morant… – 11:56 PM

Marc J Spears @marcjspears
The Warriors are shooting 35.6% from the field and have missed 24 of 29 3-pointers. Steph and Klay are a combined 2 of 17 from 3-point range. Memphis sans Ja Morant shooting miserably as well but has 25 bench points, 42 points in the point and 13 fast break points. Grizzlies up 7 PM

Geoff Calkins @geoff_calkins
Playing the role of Ja Morant tonight will be Desmond Bane. – 11:53 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyvslater
The Warriors enter the fourth quarter with 62 points. They only need another 80 points in the final 12 minutes to match their Game 3 total. Down seven to a Memphis team without Ja Morant. – 11:52 PM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
You can tell by the way Ja Morant is walking he’s in a ton of pain. – 11:26 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyvslater
Heavy limp for Ja Morant going to the locker room at halftime. Only one off day between each remaining game in this series. Grizzlies remaining wander on his diagnosis of him. PM

melissa rohlin @melissarohlin
The Memphis Grizzlies (without Ja Morant) have a 41-38 lead over the Golden State Warriors at halftime. The Warriors are 2-for-19 from beyond the arc and have nearly twice as many turnovers (11) turnovers as the Grizzlies (6). – 11:10 PM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
For those who thought this would be an easy game to win, the Grizzlies were 20-5 this season without Ja Morant. – 11:02 PM

Marc J Spears @marcjspears
Great slow pace and defense for the Grizzlies sans Ja Morant to hold the Warriors to 20 points in the first quarter. Golden State was 0-for-10 from 3-point range in the first quarter and shot 39.1 percent from the field. – 10:44 PM

Ja Morant this postseason leads the Grizzlies in points, rebounds, assists, steals. I know they were terrific without him in the regular season, but that’s a lot of ground to cover if he can’t go – 7:38 PM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Also the hate Ja Morant gets for dancing is so weird. – 6:40 PM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Obviously going to be tough for the Grizz without Ja Morant. But this is a major opportunity for some guys to continue to get playoff experience and make big plays. – 6:31 PM
