Throughout this year's exciting first-round series between the Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves, Ja Morant's father, Tee Morant, has become well known for his courtside style and presence.

During Tuesday night's Game 5 matchup in Memphis, Tee was courtside yet again -- this time with a special guest.

Many fans have compared the elder Morant's look to that of R&B superstar Usher. The two lookalikes played into these comparisons by sitting next to each other for tonight's game.

At halftime of tonight's game, the home-team Grizzlies are trailing the Wolves 55-53. Morant has struggled from the field with just six points, but has also chipped in seven assists and five rebounds.

The series is currently deadlocked at 2-2 as each team looks to take the lead heading into Game 6.
