Ja Morant and Desmond Bane were among several Memphis Grizzlies players that pulled up to watch the Memphis Hustle host the Santa Cruz Warriors on Tuesday in the G League.
The two guards were joined courtside by Danny Green and Santi Aldama at the game in Southaven, Mississippi, which is roughly 17 miles south of Memphis. They were treated to a win by the home team as seven players scored in double figures.
Grizzlies rookie Kenneth Lofton Jr. scored a team-high 23 points, five rebounds and four assists to lead the Hustle to the 140-131 win. Dakota Mathias had 22 points, and rookies Vince Williams Jr. (21 points) and Jake LaRavia (20 points) each contributed to the win.
The Grizzlies have utilized their G League affiliate often this season for their group of rookies. With playing time at a premium, those players have had the opportunity to log extended minutes with the Hustle to continue their development.
The team has had a great bond together this season and that was further on display on Tuesday with Morant & Co. showing up to offer their support. The players put on a show for their teammates and got the win to improve to 7-1 in the regular season.
