MEM vs LAL Dream11: Los Angeles Lakers will be looking for their seventh consecutive win then they face Memphis Grizzlies away on the road in a matchup between the two Western Conference teams.
The Lakers share the joint-best winning run with Milwaukee Bucks heading into this game, following a close 127-130 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday morning (IST). The Showtime are now 12-2 on the season and sit comfortably at the top of Western Conference summit.
Meanwhile, Memphis Grizzlies face Lakers at perhaps the wrong time. Every effort and aspirations of theirs to snap the skid here should be measured by the fact that LeBron James and Co. has been the team to beat all season long, and considering how the Grizzlies have been going about its business this season, it doesn’t bode well for the hosts. As things stand, in the West, the Grizzlies are 11th after a 5-9 return on the season.
They have played a total of 89 regular-season games against each other, with the Los Angeles Lakers edging Memphis Grizzlies with 55 wins against 34 defeats in those matchups.
But the Grizzlies have performed better against the Lakers in the recent meetings, having won four times in the last seven games. The Lakers won the last season’s match-up 120-91.
