VIDEO: Ja Morant Takes on Entire Hornets Team With Driving Layup for the Win

Is a Rookie of the Year award in the future for a certain Grizzlies' point guard? Ja Morant sealed a victory for the Memphis Grizzlies over the Charlotte Hornets with this ridiculous finish at the buzzer to top off a 23-point, 11-assist night for the future superstar. This double-double will be the first of many for Morant.

Morant has been everything Memphis hoped for and more after being selected with the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft. Despite being limited to on average 27.1 minutes-per-game, the Murray State product is averaging 17.8 points-per-game along with 5.2 assists-per-game.

The future is bright for the Grizzlies and Morant is at the forefront of what is to come from a team that last made the playoffs in 2016.
