VIDEO: Ja Morant superman swat in Grizzlies win against Lakers

Ja Morant two hands swat was the highlight as Memphis Grizzlies get a 127-119 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers for a franchise record of ninth straight wins.

The point guard added 16 points to the big block and Nigerian-born Desmond Bane had 23 points, Jaren Jackson Jr. added 21 and six blocks, and Memphis won for the 12th time in 13 road games.

Morant’s swat came in the first quarter, when he soared from behind Avery Bradley as he tried for a layup, caught the ball with both hands and smacked it off the glass about halfway up the backboard.

“I just got back and made an incredible play,” Morant said.

“I was just trying to gather the ball. Most of the time on a break like that, if you block it, they might have a player trailing to get the ball and lay it up.

“It worked out perfect for me. Now I’m probably all over the internet for it.”

LeBron James continued his fine form dropping 35 points in 33 minutes.
