The Grizzlies and Lakers shift their home and home into Los Angeles as they Lakers look to avoid the sweep after Memphis took the first leg.
Memphis never let the Lakers get within the danger zone as they held on 128-119 in a high scoring game on Wednesday.
Now that it’s official Marc Gasol is out for the entire season, Memphis has chosen to really up the pace and will look to continue to push the tempo.
Memphis was one of the most dominate teams in the West in terms of the paint, but they have now been forced to really readjust their style of play.
With Marc Gasol down, they’ve turned into a run and gun type of team and that was very productive in their 128 point showing against the Lakers on Wednesday night.
Memphis shot 57% from the field and the 128 points is well above their season average of about 98 points per game.
Matt Barnes set the pace for the Grizzlies with 25 points, as he is expected to get a new role in this offense with their new style.
Conley will be the leader of this offense as he will set the tone and he produced with a solid turnout, going for 24 points, 8 assists, and 6 rebounds.
Memphis’s offense was stellar from the opening tip as they scored 30 plus points in every quarter.
Deadline acquisition SF P.J. Hairston looks to be fitting into this fast paced offense as he had 17 against Los Angeles after having just 2 in each of the first two games.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers putting up 119 points is quite impressive given the struggles they’ve had this season offensively.
Los Angeles has averaged just 97.6 points per game this season and has gone through many growing pains with this youthful team.
The Lakers have dropped 7 in a row, as losing streaks have become a major norm for them this season. Their defense has been the only consistent thing this season…however it’s been consistently bad.
Los Angeles has allowed 120.2 point per game over their last 5. Things aren’t that better overall this season as this team gives up 107.1.
Offensively, it’s been SG Jordan Clarkson who has been the bright spot as of late. Clarkson hit 6 three pointers and dropped in 28 points on Wednesday and has averaged 21 points over the the last 5 games.
