This Saturday, two potential playoff teams in the Western Conference will take on each other as the Los Angeles Lakers head east to take on the Memphis Grizzlies.
Both teams have faced some rough times over the last week and could use a win here.
The Lakers have had a rough patch during the last couple of weeks.
They have lost five of their last eight games after a very promising start to the season. They will also be on the second night of a back-to-back as they take on the Toronto Raptors on Friday.
The Grizzlies have faced lots of bad news recently. They looked like a sure fire competitor in the West again in 2016, but have faced injuries and a tough stretch this past week.
Memphis has lost three of their last five but come into this one off a win over Orlando on Thursday.
The Lakers have made great strides under first year head coach Luke Walton. They started the season off very hot but have come back down to Earth recently.
They still stand at 10-10 and hope to make it out of the weekend over .500.
The Lakers have been very impressive on offense, ranking 8th in the NBA in scoring offense with 106.6 points per game.
They rank 12th in rebounds with 44.6 and 17th in assists with 21.9 per contest. The defense has been another story.
They allow 109.6 points per game which is 27th in the league.
Lou Williams actually leads the Lakers in scoring even though he usually comes off the bench. He scores 16.7 points per game.
D’Angelo Russell adds 16.1 points and 4.8 assists per contest.
Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle have also contributed nicely.
The Grizzlies had been having some struggles over the last few games, and then their leader in scoring and assists, Mike Conley, went down earlier this week.
Conley is the guy who makes the Grizzlies offense go, and it is hard to see who will (or can) step in to fill those shoes.
Memphis comes into this game ranked 28th in offense with only 97.2 points a night. They are 28th in rebounding with 41.8 and 27th in assists with 19.5.
As is usually the case with the Grizzlies, they have still been able to hang their hats on great defense luckily. They allow only 98.3 points per game which ranks them 5th in the NBA.
