NBA Selections – January 3, 2024 – Ja Morant

Posted on

Since returning from suspension, Ja Morant has started the season with 3 great games and 3 not so great. His last game wasn’t so great, scoring only 17 points in 31 mins vs Sacramento.

Ja has scored 20 points or less on 3 occasions – with all 3 opponents (Kings, Clippers and Pacers) being fairly solid defensively vs Point Guards and is averaging 25.2 points per game overall.

The good news? Memphis face San Antonio today – the worst team in the league vs Point Guards and top 3 worst in allowed opponent points per game

Similar to my Jaylen Brown play 2 days ago, San Antonio have a lot of room for improvement defensively – especially vs PG’s where they rank the worst in the league. Jaylen Brown only needed 26 minutes to score 24 points vs San Antonio and so far this season Ja has not seen less than 30 mins on the court.

With Memphis at home, I expect Ja to put on a show and put up closer to 30 points – so the available total of 26.5 is a play.

Suggested Bet
