At one game apiece, as the Lakers-Grizzlies series moves to Los Angeles, the biggest question remains whether Ja Morant will make it to court for the third game.
The star forward was missing from Memphis’ 103-93 win in game two at the FedEx Forum three nights back.
His time away, however, did not hurt his side as Tyus Jones, his direct replacement in the starting five, rose to the occasion to shoot 10 points and assist another 8 shots.
Xavier Tillman was another vital clog for the Grizzlies at the front and back ends of the court, with 22 points and 13 rebounds.
The Lakers again had the services of Rui Hachimura who came off the bench and shot 20 points. From its star duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the Lakers got contrasting performances.
While LeBorn provided 28 points and 12 rebounds, along with three assists, Davis took time to get going. He could only manage 13 points on the night and eight assists.
The Lakers have the road game advantage in their bag already, and a couple of games in front of its faithful offer the perfect chance for Darvin Ham to wrap this series in, at the most, six games.
