The Memphis Grizzlies will travel to Hollywood to take on the Los Angeles Lakers for a national TV spectacle. Is it because they want to showcase one of the brightest young teams against LeBron’s Lakers?
Or do they want the world to see the young, brash Ja Morant take on the King? Or did national TV think it’d be a time they could embarrass the Grizzlies?
Let the speculation run in your head. Nonetheless, the Grizzlies are getting on national TV, and that’s always a celebration.
And don’t think towards the latter, as the Grizzlies played the Lakers close in their 2 matchups earlier in the season — without Ja Morant. The first game is misleading, but they were in the game until LeBron turned it on in the 4th quarter. Then, the Grizzlies only lost by 2 the second game.
With Ja Morant back in the fold for this Lakers matchup, what must happen for the Grizzlies to keep it competitive?
I could say to slow down LeBron James, but we have 18 years worth of evidence that suggests it’s a hard task to complete. There is a group of players that could be slowed down, and that’s the players around him.
The Grizzlies must prevent anyone around LeBron from having a big night, whether it’s Montrezl Harrell, Dennis Schroder, Kyle Kuzma, or Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
Those four players mentioned can get hot quick. Schroder was one of the league’s most electrifying bench players last season. He’s still adjusting to playing with LeBron, as his scoring averages and shooting percentages are down, but he’s still capable of a hot shooting night to carry the Lakers.

The same goes for Caldwell-Pope, who’s shooting a sizzling 44.4% from 3. He’s going to get looks from the gravity of LeBron, but the key there is to make sure he’s not firing with volume and to close out hard to alter his rhythm.
If Anthony Davis is out, that surely means more scoring opportunities for Harrell and Kuzma. The Grizzlies have to make sure their interior defense is good, as Harrell is remarkably efficient there. With Kuzma, he’s really the only non-LeBron that can create at 3 levels, and one of good size too
