The Grizzlies' bright future was on display in Tuesday's 119-112 comeback win over the Wolves, with Ja Morant posting 25 points (12-for-18 shooting), four rebounds, seven assists and a steal and Jaren Jackson Jr. delivering 21 points (7-of-15 shooting), seven rebounds, a steal, three blocks and four 3-pointers.
Morant and JJJ were lethal in the pick-and-roll down the stretch as Memphis erased a 14-point deficit and turned it into a fairly comfortable victory. Jackson now has multiple threes in 10 consecutive games, three off Mike Miller's franchise record. Both guys are on the upswing and have a very real shot at finishing inside fantasy's top-50. There will be bumps in the road but the Grizzlies have to love what they're seeing out of their young core. More often than not, you can see how Memphis is a team that could vault into competitiveness again very soon.
