Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies are headed to the playoffs after going 2-0 in the State Farm Play-In Tournament to secure the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference.

Morant went toe-to-toe with two-time Kia MVP Stephen Curry in Friday’s win-or-go-home battle, finishing with 35 points, six rebounds, six assists and four steals. The 21-year-old point guard hit the dagger floater with 4.5 seconds remaining in overtime.

The impeccable performance, which included a 15-point outburst in the fourth quarter and overtime, caught the eyes of stars across the league.

Other current and former players were mesmerized by the Play-In Tournament in general.
