Tough team. Finished on a 15-3 run to beat the pels 107-103.

Would have been easier to beat a mediocre spurs team.

I still dont know what to think of the Grizzlies, very unpredictable to me. imo, if we keep the score high we got this, anything around 100 or less and they have the advantage. Maybe would be good to rest James since its a back to back, let Zo, Hart, Kuz show what they can against a tough team

Rondo is great cause he creates for himself and others. Lebron is the same. Ingram can create shots for himself better than almost any of the youngsters. Without any of these 3 I think we struggle to score ... 90 points?

We are going to have to regroup quickly. Memphis, at home, is a tall order.
It's going to be nice getting BI and Rondo back soon.

Pretty much. Anything below say 110, the grizzlies would take that.

Past 3 games:
@sixers 103-95 L
Clippers 96-86 W
@Pelicans 107-103 W

Although this assumes Lakers defense will show up to play.

Winning the game against the Grizzles will quickly diminish the bad lose against the Spurs, I hope the team can pull it off but they need to keep he pace up and not make the game look slow.

One of the best defenses in the league. With the bad loss against the Spurs, I'm not holding my breath for this one. Go Lakers!

Expecting a loss, hoping for a won.

Don’t know why people are so confident in this team. Yes we have won games recently, but other than one game all season, I don’t think there has been a game where we have had a comfortable lead for the entire game.

Another tough road game. We have to get to a point where we win these type of games on a consistent basis.

I anticipate a hard-fought games but we should be able to eke out a win. GO LAKERS!!

It's a winnable game.
Hopefully Lonzo and our bigs slow down Conley and Gasol.
I don't see anyone on Memphis slowing down LBJ.

Well at least they had to play a road game last night. Memphis is favored by 2 points.

Preview: Lakers (15-10) at Grizzlies (15-9)
Date: December 08, 2018 8:00 PM EDT

MEMPHIS -- LeBron James enters a personal House of Horrors on Saturday night, in the second game of a back-to-back no less.

James has made 13 career visits to Memphis, recording a modest 7-6 record.

That's a lot more boastful than his individual success. He's been limited to 20, 12 and 18 points in his last three visits, shooting just 18 for 44 overall and 3 for 10 on 3-pointers.

James has scored 23 or fewer points -- well below his 27.2-point career average -- in eight of his last 12 matchups with the defensive-minded Grizzlies.

Ingram won't play Saturday either, leaving Lakers coach Luke Walton scrambling for ballhandlers.

"We're gonna have to start splitting LeBron and (Lonzo Ball) a little more," he said to the media. "Get one of them out earlier than we'd like. Lance (Stephenson) can run some point still. Svi (Mykhailiuk) ran some point with his (Ukrainian) national team, so he's capable. But we're going to try to have LeBron and (Ball) on the court for most of the game."

IMO, with Rondo and BI out you can't rest Lebron. If you want a fighting chance to get the win. Would rather see Lebron rest against a team we should beat anyway. Hope we get healthy soon. Go Lakers!
