Los Angeles Lakers Betting

The Los Angeles Lakers are coming in this game with a 5-2 record as they start to pull away from the pack with their three-game winning streak. They were able to beat the San Antonio Spurs twice and hopes to do the same to the Memphis Grizzlies. LeBron James led the team during their first encounter with Memphis with 22 points, 13 rebounds, eight assists, and two steals. Anthony Davis almost had a double-double with 17 points and 9 rebounds but the big contribution was from Montrezl Harrell who just played 21 minutes and had 16 points and nine rebounds.

Memphis Grizzlies Betting

The Memphis Grizzlies are just trying to roll with the punches given to them as this team is still adjusting to life without sophomore sensation Ja Morant. Tre Jones was inserted into the starting lineup and he was able to give the team 14 points, five rebounds, and three assists. Jonas Valanciunas had the most success statistically with 14 points, ten rebounds, an assist, and a steal. Kyle Anderson scored the most points with 18 but they need more from Dillon Brooks who was just limited to 9. The Grizzlies also miss the services of Jaren Jackson Jr. and the list of injuries continues to pile up.

Players to Watch: J. Morant PG 3 GP 3 GS 27 MIN 26.3 PTS 0.7 OR 1.7 DR 2.3 REB 6.3 AST 0.7 STL 0.7 BLK 2.3 TO 2 PF 2.7 AST/TO 31.88 PER
