The Suns beat the Grizzlies on an inbounded alley-oop with less than half a second left, 99–97.
Tyson Chandler slammed the long lob pass home; Devin Booker made his return from injury and scored 32 to lead all scorers; and Marqueese Chris gobbled up 13 rebounds in the win.
Marc Gasol didn’t shoot the ball well for Memphis. Had he, the Grizzlies probably would have won their second game in a row after beating the Clippers at home before Christmas.
So this game in LA will be the second leg of a back-to-back, but any holiday rust or hangover that was there last night should be gone. Gasol will surely shoot the ball better, too.
But don’t look now, though. The Grizzlies have the fewest wins in the Western Conference, tied with Dallas. The Mavericks have one more loss than Memphis but the way the two teams are trending, the Grizzlies may end up being the Western Conference’s lottery representative.
Los Angeles Lakers
Then again, the bottom of the Western Conference is pretty packed together. The Lakers and Kings both have only 11 wins, compared to Memphis’ 10. Then Phoenix’s win last night was only its 13th.
The Lakers played on Christmas Day in the late game. The Timberwolves beat them up pretty good but Kyle Kuzma scored 31 as he continues to look like a guy the Lakers can build around in the future. The 31 points were the fourth-most on Christmas Day by a rookie. LeBron James’ 34 are the most ever.
Lonzo Ball is out for a week with a shoulder injury. He made headlines on Christmas when he showed off the $400,000 Rolls Royce he got for LaVar and his mother, Tina.
Brandon Ingram didn’t play on Christmas but he practiced on Boxing Day and reportedly looked find and will play in this game, though he is listed as day-to-day.

Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Prediction: the Grizzlies win on the road.
Having played post-holiday could help Memphis in this spot. I’m expecting a bounce-back game from Gasol, who will remain prideful through this disaster season he’s having to endure. He’s still the best player on the floor.
