Free Memphis Grizzlies vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Prediction:
As convincing as the Lakers’ first quarter was the battle of the glass was concerning particularly the offensive boards where they gave up 18 boards (compared to 11) and continued to struggle from deep shooting 7 of 28 (25%).
Memphis didn’t shoot much better but attempted more 3-point shots hitting 13 of 39 (33.3%). Where LA excelled was in the paint, typically a Grizzlies strength but the Lakers won that category 58 to 42.
Based on the way Morant and Co. finished the game they won’t be coming out panicky in Game 4. Rather they’ll be looking to take it to the Lakers to even up the series and with their superstar back knowing there isn’t a Laker who can stop him their chances increased exponentially.
