The Grizzlies have been benefitting from his elite play, and they are a confident basketball team entering Philadelphia on Monday.
Sixers star Joel Embiid, a fellow All-Star starter, has been impressed with Morant, but he also gave praise to the entire Grizzlies team as he acknowledged just how good the team really is. “Even in the games he missed, they were like 10-2 or something like that, so they got a pretty good team. Obviously, he’s doing great just getting them going offensively, just being aggressive attacking the basket, and knocking down some big shots.”
The Sixers and the Grizzlies played in December, and Memphis won big, 126-91. Neither Embiid nor Morant played, which shows how deep the Grizzlies are.
