Los Angeles Lakers vs Memphis Grizzlies Tips 


The Los Angeles Lakers entertain the Memphis Grizzlies at the Staples Center on Saturday. The Lakers are enjoying their best run of form this season, and that’s reflected by them winning six straight games. By comparison, the Grizzlies’ win over Charlotte on Thursday was their first in five games. 

The Lakers are vying with the Utah Jazz as the best team in the NBA this season, and they will be way too good for Memphis. I’m picking Los Angeles to win by at least ten points in a game that breaks the 220 total points’ margin.  

  • The Lakers have won 6 in a row
  • The Grizzles have won 1 of their last 5 matches
  • The Grizzlies have a straight 10-10 record this season

Head to Head 


The Los Angeles Lakers and the Memphis Grizzlies have played each other 94 times, with the Lakers leading their head to head by 59 wins to 35. In their last six matches, the Lakers lead 5-1, including the two most recent meetings in early January. 

An interesting sidebar is that games between these two teams are almost always low scoring affairs, and only a handful of games over the past ten seasons have broken 220 points combined. 

Los Angeles Lakers Form


The Lakers have improved as the season has progressed, and they are now top of the Pacific Division, and sit second behind the Utah Jazz in the Western Conference. Los Angeles have won 20 games and lost six, the second best record in the NBA. 

The Lakers are on a six game winning streak, their best run of the season. Big points scorers for the Lakers have been LeBron James and Anthony Davis. James’ biggest points haul was 46 against Cleveland in January. Davis scored 37 points against Chicago that month for his highest tally. 

Memphis Grizzlies Form 


The Grizzlies are second in the Southeast Division, behind the San Antonio Spurs. They are back in tenth spot in the Western Conference, and any shot at a playoff berth would seem a distant dream. 

The Grizzlies have won ten and lost ten this season, although they are 6-4 in their last 10 games. On Thursday Memphis defeated Charlotte to end a four game losing streak. However, prior to that the Grizzlies had won seven on the bounce.

Verdict

The Lakers are in imperious form right now, and are in the kind of mode that could take them to their second straight NBA Championship. The Grizzlies by comparison are an inconsistent mess of a team.
 
I’m picking Los Angeles to dominate this game and score a clear win over the Grizzlies, beating them by at least ten points.
