Ja Morant continued his playoff breakout on Tuesday, going off for 47 points, eight rebounds, eight assists and three steals in a Game 2 victory over the Golden State Warriors. After the win, Morant was seen saying something to Steph Curry as they passed one another. Asked about what he said postgame, Morant told reported, “After Game 1, he came to me and Jaren and said, ‘It’s going to be a battle. We’re going to have some fun.’ I was able to return that message tonight. This is my favorite matchup, playing against a guy like him.”
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. Ja fell three points short of 50, which would have put him in an exclusive club. In the history of the NBA, a player has scored 50 or more points in a playoff game on just 45 occasions. How many can you name in five minutes?
