Titans defensive back Malcolm Butler sported a Ja Morant jersey before the home opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. The Twitter account for the Titans tweeted "It's a Tennessee thing." Morant, the star point guard of the Memphis Grizzlies, won the NBA Rookie of the Year Award earlier this month.
The message hasn't changed for Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. since entering the NBA. Vote. During the team's first CommUNITY conversation, the message was repeated.
This game is the worst of Mayo’s career in Memphis shooting 1-11 from the field, his only made shot being one of his four three point attempts. He would finish the game with a -12 +/-, the lowest of everyone in the starting lineup, and contributed nothing positive defensively while racking up four fouls. This seems like a bad night at the office, but the spiral from this game continues as this would be his last game as a consistent member of Lionel Hollins’ starting lineup.
