The Los Angeles Lakers will be looking to build on their recent upswing in form as they square off against the exciting Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA Western Conference on Thursday evening.
It has been a difficult season so far for 2020 NBA Champions Los Angeles Lakers, who find themselves in sixth place in the Western Conference standings heading into this contest. But they have won three of their last four games and saw off the challenge of the Boston Celtics in their last game. LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, and co. will have to be at their very best if they want to claim the win on Thursday.
That is because the Memphis Grizzlies are in excellent form going into Thursday's contest. Their recent upswing has seen them climb up to fourth place in the NBA Western Conference standings. With Ja Morant leading the Grizzlies, they have a very high ceiling. They could post a big threat to the Lakers, especially if they show the form they have done in recent weeks. It will be very interesting to see who comes out on top in what should be a closely contested match.
The game will be broadcast locally in the Los Angeles Lakers market on Spectrum SportsNet and the Bally Sports SE-MEM in the Memphis Grizzlies market. Fans who do not live in these states can watch the game live as well, as it will be shown live on NBA League Pass with a live stream on DirecTV Stream.
