Los Angeles Faces Memphis While Riding 4-Game Win Streak

The Los Angeles Lakers, with a record of 40-32 and ninth place in the Western Conference, will face off against the Memphis Grizzlies, who are 13th in the Western Conference with a record of 24-48. The FANDUEL SPORTSBOOK NBA LINE predicts the Lakers as favorites, with a -4 point spread and an over/under of 217.5.

The Lakers are on a four-game winning streak and looking to extend it with a victory over Memphis. However, the Grizzlies have struggled this season, with a record of 14-33 in Western Conference games and the lowest scoring team in the NBA at just 45.2 points per game in the paint.

Despite their struggles, Memphis has been playing well recently, going 3-7 in their last ten games and averaging 104.8 points per game. Meanwhile, Los Angeles has been dominant so far this season, winning seven out of their last ten games while averaging an impressive 122.2 points per game.

The two teams met twice earlier this season, with Los Angeles winning both contests handily. Jaren Jackson Jr., who is leading the Grizzlies with an average of 22.4 points and 5.5 rebounds per game, will be crucial to any chance for Memphis to pull off an upset against LeBron James’ squad. Anthony Davis has been instrumental for the Lakers throughout their season so far, scoring an average of 24.7 points and grabbing an impressive number of rebounds (12.6) each night on average.

As always, injuries may impact both teams’ performance during this matchup between two rivals that are looking to secure a spot in playoffs later this year.

Overall, it should be a close game that could go either way depending on how both teams perform tonight at Staples Center in Los Angeles at 8 p.m EDT or FedEx Forum in Memphis at the same time.
