Meeting for the first of four this season with the first two at home, the Lakers will look to continue their three-game winning streak versus the Grizzlies as Memphis will be in the second of a back-to-back.
Looking to build off their exciting 124-112 home win over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night to move their record to 4-5 on the early season, the Lakers are expected to put that same starting lineup on the floor when they face a Memphis team coming off a 113-104 win over the LA Clippers on Saturday afternoon.
The Lakers saw big time contributions from rookie power forward Kyle Kuzma and new acquisition C Brook Lopez in the Brooklyn win. Kuzma in his new starting role in place of the injured Larry Nance Jr. responded with 21 points and 13 rebounds. Lopez poured in 34 points along with 10 boards against his former team.
One concern for the Lakers continues to be the play of rookie PG Lonzo Ball, who has struggled from the outside shooting just 30.8 percent.
Point guard Mike Conley led the way with 22 points with fellow guards Tyreke Evans and Mario Chalmers chipping in with 20 and 12 points apiece.
With the win, the Grizzlies moved their record to 6-3 and are just one-half game back of the Houston Rockets in the Southwest Division.
The Lakers and Grizzlies will play once more in December before the series moves to Memphis in January and March.
Despite the Lakers record, this is a team that is providing plenty of excitement but will that translate to a win against a very good Memphis team? For sports betting purposes for our US players, MyBookie and 5Dimes have yet to determine the best lines for this MEM vs. LAL matchup.
