On Wednesday, April 26th, the seventh-place Los Angeles Lakers and second-seeded Memphis Grizzlies tip off in Game 5 of the series. LA took a 3-1 series lead after winning 117-111 in overtime on Monday.
Like the top-seeded Bucks, the Grizzlies will seek to win Game 5 at home so they can extend the series.
The Lakers are 43-42-2 overall against the spread this season. Also, they are 20-22-1 ATS as the away team. Another key point, the Grizzlies are 38-46-2 against the spread this season. Also, they are 24-18-1 ATS as the home team
LA won the regular season series with victories on February 28th (121-109) and March 7th (112-103) while Memphis took the January 20th contest (122-121).
As a result, all-time the Lakers hold the advantage of winning 63 of 102 matches. Overall, last season the teams played four times with the Grizzlies taking three of the four contests.
This is the first time the clubs are facing each other in the postseason.
Los Angeles Lakers
LeBron James has dialed up the Hot Tub Time Machine for this series and is making Dillon Brooks eat his words. When Anthony Davis is focused the Lakers look unstoppable but the problem is that doesn’t always seem to be a consistent choice.
He was strong defensively in Game 4 but was lackadaisical on offense although he finished with a double-double (12 points, 11 rebounds) he scored just two points in the first half.
Austin Reaves and Rui Hachimura have been the Lakers’ x-factors providing essential secondary scoring options for LeBron.
On the negative side, LA allows opponents to score an average of 116.6 points per game ranking 20th. Their opponents shoot 46.9% from the field and 34.4% from behind the arc ranking 10th and second respectively.
Another key point is the Lakers score 117.2 points per game which rank sixth-best while shooting 48.2 percent from the field and 34.6 percent from the perimeter ranking 10th and 25th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- LeBron James SF (probable— foot)
- Anthony Davis PF (probable— foot)
- Dennis Schroder PG (probable— Achilles
Ja Morant played with wild abandon, making unwise choices that put him in dangerous positions where he landed awkwardly several times seemingly hurting his injured hand that kept him out of Game 2.
With the Grizzlies already down two key players (Adams, Clarke) there is little room for error. Injuries, inexperience, and the Lakers’ role players are the main reasons the Grizzlies trail in this series.
Dillon Brooks is being left wide open on offense so Taylor Jenkins will have to decide if he wants to give some additional minutes to Luke Kennard or another bench player to add some offensive punch especially since Brooks hasn’t been a major factor defensively either.
Meanwhile, offensively, the Grizzlies score 116.9 points per game ranked ninth overall. Memphis shoot 47.5% from the field ranking 16th, and 35.1% from the perimeter ranking 23rd.
Memphis still owns the best opponent field goal percentage of 45.3% while limiting opponents to 113 points per game and 35.5% ranking 11th and ninth respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Jake LaRavia SF (questionable — calf)
- Steven Adams C (OUT indefinitely —PCL strain)
- Brandon Clarke PF (OUT for season—torn Achilles)

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
The Grizzlies allowed the Lakers to steal home court by splitting the two home games to start the series but they should feel more comfortable being back at FedEx Forum where they had the best home record in the regular season.
Coach Jenkins has a big task getting his team to play with focus and intent and not look ahead as they try to extend the series and force Game 6 in LA.
Meanwhile, knowing the other series in the bracket will need at least two more games to complete LeBron and AD specifically should be motivated to wrap up the series to gain some extra rest days.
