Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies (46-22) will take on Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and the Oklahoma City Thunder (20-46) in part of the NBA Sunday slate.

Coming off a comeback 118-114 win over the New York Knicks with Ja Morant recording 37 points and eight rebounds to set the tone. He’s been having an All-NBA First-Team caliber season and will look to continue that.

The Grizzlies will look to maintain their standing as the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference by not experiencing a letdown loss against a losing team.

It has become a brutal recent stretch for the Thunder as their injury report has become as long as a CVS pharmacy receipt. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is doing his best to keep them afloat in the short term as they ultimately are playing for the 2022 NBA Draft.
