NBA pick predictions for Memphis Grizzlies vs Los Angeles Lakers
Memphis Grizzlies will play against Los Angeles Lakers in the regular season of the NBA and we got NBA free pick predictions for that match in LA. The game is on Tuesday, October 28, at 10:30 PM ET and the place is Staples Center, Los Angeles, California.
Memphis Grizzlies 1-2 started the season with a loss from Miami Heat 101-120. In that match, no Grizzlies player reached 20 or more points. Their highest scoring player was Jaren Jackson who finished with 17 points and Tyus Jones added 15 points. Heat were without Jimmy Butler but Justise Winslow scored 27 points and Kendrick Nunn added 24 points for the win of their team. They lost also their second match from Chicago Bulls 110-102 and Jaren Jackson scored 23 points for Memphis but that wasn’t enough because their second-highest scoring player was Brandon Clarke who finished with 14 or almost 10 less than Jackson.
For Bulls, Zach LaVine scored 37 points and Coby White added 25. They finally won against Brooklyn Nets 134-133 after OT and we see Ja Morant scored 30 points in this match and Dillon Brooks helped with 21 points. Jonas Valančiūnas played less than 20 minutes for Grizzlies but scored 16 points which were a key factor for the victory. For Nets, Kyrie Irving scored 37 points but that wasn’t enough for his team.
Los Angeles Lakers 2-1 started the new season with a loss from Los Angeles Clippers 102-112 and giving the fact that Clippers were without Paul George it can be a very big warning for the Lakers and their chances to win the championship. However, after that match, they beat Utah Jazz 95-86 and LeBron James scored 32 points. Anthony Davis added 21 points and their third-best scorer was Troy Daniels with 15 points. On Sunday they won again against Charlotte Hornets 120-101 and this time the leading scorer for L.A. Lakers was Anthony Davis with 29 points. LeBron scored 20 points which are 4 more than what Dwight Howard scored for only 23 minutes. For Hornets, only Miles Bridges scored 20 points or more – 23 and with .440 eFG%, they can’t expect to beat a team like Lakers.
It’s no surprise that Los Angeles Lakers are the big favorite in the upcoming game which they will play at home against Grizzlies who lost twice already and got very lucky with the win in the OT against Brooklyn Nets. That’s why I expect a big win for Lakers in Staples Center after they lost there from Clippers and now fans will want to see a much better performance from their favorite basketball players.
