The NBA postseason is always packed with stars banging their horns against each other. The showdown of the 2021-22 season is no different, as modern NBA fans will all see two young faces of the league – Ja Morant and Anthony Edwards. The Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Los Angeles Clippers in play-in competition to secure their place in the finals.
It’s safe to say that Ja Morant is beyond excited to take on Anthony Edwards. Additionally, the young Grizzlies star has decided to spice up the competition in his own way. These two goalscorers aren’t just two of the most athletic, energetic, and high-performing players. But even led their team from the front. It certainly couldn’t get any better.

Yes Morant vs Anthony Edwards all set for Round 1
To make things even more exciting, the Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves actually split their four meetings this season — and neither of them has won back-to-back games in their meetings. Also, Ja Morant missed just one game in those competitions, so you know these two teams are a very good match.
Speaking of the individual performances of these two stars, Ja Morant averaged 27.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game in 2021-22. While Anthony Edwards had a solid streak of 21.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists.
That being said, it’s the Memphis Grizzlies who would go into this series as favorites. Considering the side played so well without their top scorer, his presence will surely help improve their chances of scoring. With the likes of Jaren Jackson Jr., Dillon Brooks and Desmond Bane all taking on the situation, it will be interesting to see how Karl Anthony Towns and Patrick Beverley can stop them.
Will we see the underdogs stir things up, or will the Grizzlies show the same form as they did in the regular season? Remains to be seen.
