Taylor Jenkins on the team rallying without Ja Morant again: “To use my players phrase, ‘We deep.’” Jenkins added that he doesn’t say that arrogantly. He says it with confidence in his roster of him. – 12:21 AM

It’s very clear that Memphis is better without Ja Morant. Christian Wood and a second seems fair. – 11:38 PM

Do not forget, the Grizzlies beat the OKC Thunder 152-79 during this season. Without Ja Morant… #GrzNxtGen #GrindCity11:31 PM

Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
The Ja Morant-less Grizzlies are treating the playoff Warriors like the Ja Morant-less Grizzlies treated the regular-season Thunder. – 11:30 PM

Peter Edmiston @petermiston
Are we gonna have a discussion about the fact that many of these beatdowns have happened without Ja Morant? Is there a discussion to be had? – 11:26 PM

Christos Tsaltas @Tsaltas46
The Grizzlies scored 110 points in less than 36 minutes without Ja Morant. Impressive night in Memphis! #GrindCity #GrzNxtGen11:22 PM

Memphis might win this game by 50 without Ja Morant. – 11:20 PM

The Memphis Grizzlies are up to 30 without Ja Morant. – 11:03 PM

Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
It’s not hard to see how the Grizzlies went 20-5 without Ja Morant. They’re so athletic and feisty. The Warriors will need a minor miracle to come back from this in the second half. – 11:02 PM

77 points. In the first half. Without Ja Morant. Trick’s on Steph Curry so far. – 10:47 PM

Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington
The Grizzlies, without Ja Morant, just hung 77 on the Warriors in the first half. – 10:45 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Most 40-point games, last 4 postseasons:
– Giannis Antetokounmpo (now 7)
– Luka Doncic, Kevin Durant (6)
– Devin Booker, Jimmy Butler, Kawhi Leonard, Donovan Mitchell, Jamal Murray (4)
– Damian Lillard (3)
– James Harden, Ja Morant, Jayson Tatum (2) – 9:53 PM

Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins doubled down tonight on his previous comments insinuating that Jordan Poole intentionally injured Ja Morant: sfchronicle.com//sports/articl… – 9:01 PM

Meghan Triplet @Meghan_Triplett
Coach Jenkins said the team will still continue to evaluate Ja Morant and see how he progresses in the short term right now.
I added that, “everything I hear is non-surgical.” – 7:51 PM
