Add another highlight for Ja Morant as the Memphis Grizzlies guard showed off his athleticism on another acrobatic finish Wednesday.

With time winding down in the first half against the Golden State Warriors, Morant drove to the basket and windmilled the ball around Warriors' Kevon Looney for a scooping, up-and-under layup. It gave the Grizzlies a 54-53 lead heading into halftime at Chase Center in San Francisco.

Morant had 15 points in the half. The Grizzlies forced 14 turnovers and drew 11 fouls from the Warriors but the game has been close due to the Grizzlies shooting just 41.7% from the field.

The Grizzlies are looking for their first win against the Warriors this season after losing to the defending NBA champions on Christmas Day.
