And the story of the game — along with an ejection and injury, and Steve Kerr’s comments — was the brilliance of Ja Morant, as is frequently the case in Memphis wins.

Morant scored 47 points (matching his playoff-high), dished out eight assists, pulled down eight rebounds, and had three steals in the victory.
