The Memphis Grizzlies have been surprisingly feisty of late, and the youthful team currently sits with a record of 18-22, which is good enough for the 8 seed in a diluted lower echelon of the West. On Tuesday night, the Grizzlies squared off against the Houston Rockets and summarily wiped the floor with them, clobbering Houston by a final score of 121-110. The Grizzlies were led by their young core of Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr., who produced this staggering volleyball spike against one of the best offensive players in the league, James Harden:

This play came at a critical time in the game for the Grizzlies, as that floater would’ve cut Memphis’s lead to only 1 point. Instead, the Grizz wrested control of the game and never gave it back – mostly thanks to that momentum-shifting block by JJJ.
