MEM vs LAL Dream11: Los Angeles Lakers play the second of their four-game away against Memphis Grizzlies at FedExForum, in downtown Memphis, Tennessee.
The Lakers are fresh off a close 127-130 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder and stretched their winning run to six games. Only Milwaukee Bucks have such record in NBA at the moment. Anthony Davis led the way for the Lakers with a double-double, 33 points and 11 rebounds, while LeBron James also ended up with a double-double of his own, scoring 23 points and 14 assists. Lakers are 12-2 in the season with the win.
Memphis Grizzlies, on the other hand, dropped two straight games following a 95-114 defeat a home against the shorthanded Golden State Warriors. That was a hard pill to swallow considering the Dubs’ lengthy injury issues. The result shows that the team is not where it should be and leaves a lot to be desired from their performances so far in the season. Nevertheless, you are only one win away from getting the confidence back, and what bigger motivation than to snap the Lakers’ six-game winning run. That will be some confidence booster for this Grizzlies team.
Teams: Memphis Grizzlies vs Los Angeles Lakers
Match Timing: November 24, @ 06:30 AM
LeBron James: The former Cleveland Cavaliers superstar is one of the best players of all time, who continues to defy age with incredible consistency. He is racing numbers so good that some comparatively young but established star can only dream of. Too good to ignore.
Anthony Davis: He was superb in the last game and this is what you can expect from him in every game. He leads the Lakers with a team-high 25.8 points per game, and also leads in rebounds (9.1 per game), steals (1.4 per game) and blocks (2.9 per game).
Ja Morant: The 20-year-old lead the Grizzlies this season with 18.5 points per game. He has averaged 21.4 points per game in home matches this season.
Memphis Grizzlies: The home will be without Grayson Allen (ankle injury) and the former Golden State Warriors superstar Andre Iguodala (personal reasons) for this game.
Los Angeles Lakers: As for the Lakers, Avery Bradley (leg injury) and DeMarcus Cousins (knee injury) are listed as out.
Anthony Davis seemed to have picked up a shoulder injury during the game against Oklahoma City Thunder and is a doubt for this match.
