Grizzlies vs Lakers – NBA: The LA Lakers travel to Memphis to face the Grizzlies
On a game between two teams of the West and two teams that are outside the playoff spots.
The Lakers were the worst team in the West until very recently, but their recent winning streak not only took them off the bottom spot of the conference, it also allowed them to overlap this Monday’s opponent.
The Memphis Grizzlies, that are normally a play-off’s team in the West, are doing worse this season, much due to the injury of one of their stars, the centre Mike Conley, that has been absent for most of the season.
The Grizzlies come into this match with only 13 victories against the 28 losses they’ve already suffered. The Grizzlies are coming off a loss in Denver against Nuggets but before that they had won at home against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Besides Mike Conley, Chandler Parsons is another of the Grizzlies’ absences for this match.
The Lakers were on a bad spot until very recently, since they were in last place in the West.
However, a streak of 4 consecutive wins, against the Hawks, the Kings, the San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks have made them leapfrog to a record of 15 wins and 27 losses.
Grizzlies vs Lakers – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Lakers have improved a lot in terms of production, especially thanks to the improvement of Julius Randle and Brandon Ingram on the last few matches, although the 2nd one only scored 4 points in Dallas, which didn’t stop them from winning the game anyway.
The Lakers are on an excellent streak and the team is in good form after these 4 wins that can very well become 5 after this match.
