On the other hand, the Memphis Grizzlies, who had the best home record in the NBA during the regular season with 35 wins, have yet to secure a victory in this series with their star guard Ja Morant on the court. In Game Four, Memphis struggled with their shooting, missing 31 of 42 three-point attempts and shooting just 40 percent overall. They were also outrebounded by the Lakers by a margin of 52-49 and faced a deficit of as many as 15 points.

Despite the loss, Desmond Bane had an outstanding performance for Memphis, scoring a game-high 36 points on 13-for-29 shooting and grabbing seven rebounds. Ja Morant, however, struggled with his shooting, missing 16 of his 24 field goal attempts and finishing with 19 points. Jaren Jackson Jr., who is an All-Star forward for the Grizzlies, added 14 points and 14 rebounds to the team’s effort.

  • The total stayed UNDER in 15 of Memphis’ last 20 matches with the Lakers.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Memphis Grizzlies. The NBA pick is the Memphis Grizzlies. Memphis Grizzlies’ key frontcourt players, Steven Adams and Brandon Clarke, will be sidelined for the entire postseason due to injuries to the knee and leg respectively. Despite a promising start in the series opener, the Grizzlies’ momentum was disrupted when Ja Morant, their star player, had to exit the game due to a wrist injury. However, Memphis is expected to bounce back and avoid elimination with a victory at home, with a final score prediction of 116-108 in favor of the Grizzlies.
