Ja Rules: Morant, the Memphis rookie, is too much for sluggish Clippers | Whicker

first_img Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ “The most impressive thing about Ja is that he just gets better steadily,” said Taylor Jenkins, whom you may or may not know is the Memphis coach. “He’s probably now at the top of the scouting report. He really dives into how teams are covering him.”And yet only three years ago Temetrius Jamel Morant was just a phone-book name in South Carolina, discovered by a Murray State assistant coach who was seeking another player at a camp and noticed Morant tearing it up 3-on-3. The NBA scouts came for the dunking and the slick passing but they stayed for the savvy.Earlier this week Morant was 10th among West guards in All-Star voting.“I was speechless,” he said. “But otherwise I’m just trying to be Ja.”Big names don’t have to be long. What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory The Clippers (25-12), who don’t like these 12:30 starts, will try to have lunch without losing it Sunday against the Knicks.“I just try to stay with what I do, control the pace, never get rushed or anything,” Morant said. “I’m just really looking for my teammates, not worrying about who’s defending me, just taking whatever they give me.”Morant had two turnovers in his 29:35 on court and was 6-for-6 from 2-point range. The Clippers played a lot of zone against him, but he also ran into Robinson, Mo Harkless, Landry Shamet and Kawhi Leonard at various times.L.A. had chopped nine points off the Grizzlies’ 25-point lead when Morant slowed down the dance, used a pick-and-roll and instantly found Jaren Jackson flashing for a dunk. Two free throws and three assists later, Morant had Memphis up by 21.“He’s going to be a great player,” Rivers said. “Or is, already, I love his tempo, just love it.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime Rivers played back when point guards set up the buffet. Now a lot of them eat. The leading assist man in the NBA is 6-foot-8 and 250 pounds and named LeBron James. Steph Curry and Damien Lillard get their assists, but normally they’re trying to pass the ball into nylon strands.Morant is averaging nearly three more assists and nearly four-and-a-half more points than any other rookie.“The point guards all used to be facilitators, just trying to run the team,” Rivers said. “This generation, you have facilitators and scorers, and some just want to score.“We don’t have a true point guard. As a coach you have to decide whether you want to run a point guard system. Ours definitely is not. Our turnovers are a little bit up this year. I hope we can do something about it but I’m not sure we can.”It must be noted that neither Patrick Beverley nor Paul George were around to corral Morant on Saturday. The Clippers responded with a team concept that guarded nobody, surrendered the loose ball wars and, on the other end, had only 20 assists. Rivers bluntly said the preseason NBA favorites “don’t have an identity right now” and hadn’t played a praiseworthy game since Christmas Day against the Lakers.Meanwhile, Memphis showed why the NBA has such appeal. It is one of several teams that has a load of talented players and still can’t surface. Morant, Crowder, Jackson, rookie Brandon Clarke, backup guard Tyus Jones and shooter Dillon Brooks form what would be a significant nucleus if not for all the stocked teams ahead of them. But they are worth monitoring.This is what happens when a league hasn’t expanded in 15 years. It is why the Lakers deserve hat-tips for going unbeaten, so far, against sub-.500 teams. They have dodged the kind of scratchy nights, and days, that the Clippers suffered Saturday.Related Articles PreviousLos Angeles Clippers’ Landry Shamet, right, works for a loose ball next to Memphis Grizzlies’ Dillon Brooks during the first half of an NBA basketball game Saturday, Jan. 4, 2020, in Los Angeles.

(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Saturday illustrated the need for a point guard, and also the point of guarding.Ja Morant, the second pick in the 2019 draft from Murray State, did not live up to his highlights. That’s a compliment. He did rise for a dunk when he got past Jerome Robinson in transition, but generally he made the book plays, the ones that do no harm.Morant still had 22 points and nine assists for a 14-22 team, one that the Clippers invited into Staples Center with instructions to make itself comfortable. The Grizzlies did so, to the tune of a 40-point first quarter and a 140-114 party.In fact Memphis put Lawler’s Law to the test by scoring its 100th point in the final minute of the third quarter. Back-to-back 3-pointers by Jae Crowder (plus-39 for the game) and another by USC alum DeAnthony Melton made it 104-80 at the buzzer, and wise fans booed. With four minutes to go Doc Rivers sent in the Agua Caliente G-League loaners. Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum last_img read more
