April 30, 2023 (Jack87 News) – In the previous NBA playoffs, the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Memphis Grizzlies 125-85 at home. After this game, the Los Angeles Lakers became the winner of this round of the series with a total score of 4 to 2 BK8. Next, they will compete with the winner of the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings for a place in the Western Conference Finals.
In the recently concluded game, the performance of the Grizzlies’ backcourt core Ja Morant is really surprising. He played 33 minutes and 52 seconds, shot 3 of 16, 2 of 7 from beyond the three-point line, and 4 of 4 free throws. He only scored 10 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals. His plus-minus value is as low as -31 Bet99, the lowest in the game. Morant has no touch on the offensive end and wasted a lot of opportunities.
In this round of the series, Morant averaged 37.5 minutes per game, 24.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 7 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.2 blocks per game, as many as 3.4 turnovers, and his shooting percentage was 42.5%. He made 41.9% of his points and 76.9% of his free throws. Morant’s offensive efficiency can only be regarded as so-so, and he also lacks sufficient contribution in terms of organization and defense. As the core of the team, Morant also needs to bear a huge responsibility for the team’s first round loss.
It is evident that Morant showed his shortcomings at the critical moment. Under the defense of the Lakers’ backup point guard Dennis Schroder 22Bet, it is difficult for Morant to score through breakthroughs, and his outside shooting grasp is very average, coupled with his passing ability and organization The ability is not too outstanding, which also caused him to be limited everywhere on the court. Maybe Morant needs to improve his weak links this summer, otherwise he may still have a clear gap from the top stars.
