The young Memphis Grizzlies may not be the talk of the NBA, but they have inserted themselves in the conversation.

The red-hot Grizzlies aim to extend their season-high winning streak to seven games on Friday when they host the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rookie point guard Ja Morant highlighted his 26-point performance by making 10 of 11 shots from the floor in Memphis' 121-110 victory over the Houston Rockets on Tuesday. The second overall pick added eight assists to become the first rookie in NBA history with at least 25 points and eight assists in a game in which he shot better than 90 percent from the floor.
