VIDEO: Ja Morant Hits Multiple 3s Over James Harden and Roasts Him in NSFW Fashion

Memphis Grizzlies phenom Ja Morant issues a profane rebuke of James Harden

Memphis Grizzlies rookie point guard Ja Morant had himself a spectacular game against the 26-12 Houston Rockets, putting up 26 points on 10-11 shooting along with eight assists, leading his team to the upset victory. While Ja's all-around contributions led the way to the W, this game will be remembered most for the epic trash talk he delivered to James Harden -- and the two times he drained three-pointers right in his face.

That is some real confidence right there from the 20-year-old rookie! To be able to play as well as he did against the former NBA MVP and future Hall of Famer is incredibly impressive.

This wasn't the end of the show from Morant, however, After hitting a clutch stepback three-pointer -- Harden's go-to move -- with two minutes left on the clock, Morant decided to show off one last time with a few slaps to the chest.

Good for Morant for showing The Beard that he isn't just another rookie, and that he is here to stay.

Look for Harden to try and take revenge the next time the teams match up. Until then, this will certainly stick in his craw.
