Sunday, January 3rd finds the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies playing in an early evening match.
The Hawks hold the all-time record between the clubs with 57 wins in 92 meetings. Last season, the clubs played four times with the Lakers winning three and the Grizzlies grabbing one victory.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers played the Spurs for the second time in three days netting their second consecutive victory over San Antonio.
In the first match, LeBron James was celebrating his birthday and in this second game, he delivered a triple-double of 26 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists just to prove he hasn’t lost a step despite his advancing years.
Anthony Davis led the scoring for his Lakers with a double-double of 35 points and 11 rebounds. The win was punctuated by a 9-0 run to ensure the victory.
In the first victory over the Spurs, the Lakers got what they wanted on fast-break scoring and controlling the pace but in this match, they needed to score in the paint as Gregg Popovich made the appropriate adjustments.
Dennis Schroder added 15 points while Kyle Kuzma chipped in 11 points as the other double-figure scorers.
Not all went well for LA as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was forced from the match after twisting his ankle on a drive to the basket for a layup making him doubtful to play on Sunday. Alex Caruso is out dealing with health and safety protocols. KCP scored 11 points before his exit.
Like the consecutive game series versus the Spurs, this game marks another two-game series played against the same team.
Despite missing young superstar Ja Morant and copious members of their roster the Grizzlies shocked the Hornets routing them 108-93 in Charlotte.
Six Grizzlies scored in double-figures with Dillon Brooks leading the way scoring 21 points along with three rebounds, two assists, three steals, and a block although it was tempered by five turnovers.
Kyle Anderson (Slo-Mo) continued his great start to the season with a double-double of 18 points, 11 rebounds as well as five assists, two steals, and a block.
Jonas Valanciunas also delivered a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds. Brandon Clarke (15), Gorgui Dieng (14), Desmond Bane (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Eight players are listed on the injured reserve list including Grayson Allen (ankle) and De’Anthony Melton (illness) who are both questionable for Sunday.
Killian Tillie (hamstring), Xavier Tillman (knee), Jontay Porter (knee) Justise Winslow (hip), and Jaren Jackson Jr. (knee) are all out indefinitely while Morant (knee) is projected to return in February .

Although the depleted Grizzlies surprised the Hornets it’s not likely they’ll pull off the same surprise attack versus the defending champs.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Lakers ATS
The Lakers might elect to use one or both of these games to give their superstars the night off via load management. Even if that happens the Lakers should be netting two easy wins in Memphis.
