Memphis Grizzlies vs Los Angeles Lakers (By: Miyagi)
Valanciunas took over Gasol's place and he is doing a great job so far for the Grizzlies. In his first three games as a Grizzly, he averages 20 points and 9.3 rebounds and he is one of the main threats for his side offensively along with Conley (questionable today).
If the Grizzlies decide to protect Conley who has a soreness, i will go big on JV's points as well but at least for now, his double-double should be more than easy. The Lakers don't have a 'threat' for offensive rebounds in their current lineup and JV will have an easy time collecting 'garbages' under his basket while there is no doubt that he will score at least 10 points today (and probably force the Lakers, even more, to go after that DeAndre buyout).
In his first meeting with the Lakers this season he scored 14p along with 8r in just 17 minutes back when he was a Raptor and had a much smaller role though this time he should have better numbers in all categories since he is on a 30 or so minute rotation with the Grizzlies.
