Memphis Grizzlies will be looking for a statement win when they host fellow Western Conference team Los Angeles Lakers in an NBA match at FedExForum, in Memphis, Tennessee, on Sunday morning (IST).

Memphis Grizzlies:

Memphis Grizzlies (14-9) are sixth in the Western Conference and considering where they finished last season and by their off-season recruitment, you wonder if they are punching above their weights till now.

They don’t even have a star who may be performing like a beast, dropping the insane number of points game after game or perhaps a candidate in their ranks who could be flagged for the season-ending personal awards.

But what they have is players putting the team before them, and always striving to get the results. The likes of Mike Conley, Marc Gasol, Jarren Jackson and Garrett Temple may not be the households names around the world or even in America for that matter, but the team is doing enough this season.

Memphis beat Los Angeles Clippers 96-86 in the last match, their sixth win in the last 10 matches, and the eighth in the 11 home games this season.

Los Angeles Lakers:

Los Angeles Lakers continue their upward trajectory in the Western Conference. The cherry on the top was a special win in the last match, 121-113 vs San Antonio Spurs, the first for Lakers this season over Spurs.

Now after winning their fourth game on the trot, the Showtime rose to fifth in the table, just two wins away from 1st placed Denver Nuggets.

LeBron James came good once again for his new team, this time dropping a magnificent 42 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists in the match. Kyle Kuzma touched the 20 points mark as well, ending with 22 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists in his 39 minutes on the court.

However, the win was marred by an injury to Brandon Ingram who had to leave the court after just five minutes of play. But the good news is that there was no fracture revealed in the scans, but he will definitely miss some game time, that’s for sure.

Regular Season Record-
Memphis Grizzlies: W-13, L-9
Los Angeles Lakers: W-17, L-9

Marc Gasol – The two-time Olympic Silver medalist is contributing with good numbers this season. His general play is second to none, scoring 9.3 rebounds, and 17.4 points per game. He is good enough to be in your NBA fantasy team.
