Los Angeles Lakers vs Memphis Grizzlies (By: Khum)
Los Angeles Lakers - Memphis Grizzlies
The Grizzlies have dealt with some issues lately, as superstar guard Mike Conley suffered a hamstring. He's back but he wasn't 100 percent in the past games, recording above aberage numbers in assists and attacking the paint with less confidence. As a result of recent events is Memphis falling dead last in NBA in shot attempts, with 82 per game.
The Lakers won 111-88 in Memphis, a few weeks ago, when they were missing the young star Brandon Ingram. He's back now and he has scored 18 points against the Pelicans. They will miss McGee once again tonight.
Memphis will play in LA the last game of a 4 games road trip. They lost all the previous three. They lost them both straight up and against the spread.
They actually lost against the spread all the games they lost straight up this season, while they won ATS every time they won SU.
The Lakers have done a great job at home so far, winning 12 out of their 16 games. Quite impressive for a building team, apparently oriented on growing their young stars.
In the Christmas day they will host the Golden State Warriors in what will be a media blockbuster.
I expect for them to make a quick work today over a Grizzlies team potentially tired and aiming for reaching the homestand in order to turn the tide over.
The half time spread worth a good look.
I'm going with the final time -5.
Let's go green!
