Lakers vs Grizzlies ATS Pick: Lakers -15½

Although it is a big spread, the Lakers shouldn’t have much of a problem bouncing back and covering it on the road against Memphis.

Anthony Davis sounds like he should be ready to go after missing the last loss for Los Angeles, and though LeBron James remains questionable, the Lakers should still be able to figure it out without him. Memphis has lost its last three and has averaged 93.7 points in that time. With a good portion of its team injured, it is likely ready for the season to end so it can get healthy for next year.

The Lakers have still been able to score despite the varying degrees of their health, averaging 121.2 points in their last five. With Los Angeles also looking to move up in the standings, it should have no issue outscoring the Grizzlies on the road.



Lakers vs Grizzlies Player Prop Pick: D’Angelo Russell Over 16.5 Points (-103)

D’Angelo Russell has continued to prove himself a valuable piece down the stretch for the Lakers, averaging 18.2 points this season and 20.0 in April. D’Lo has at least 17 points in three of his last five games and six of his last nine. He has averaged 19.8 points since the All-Star Break.

He has also performed well against Memphis this season, averaging 23.5 points and scoring at least 20 points in both matchups. On the road, Russell averages 17.1 points. With the Lakers looking to capitalize on a struggling team in Memphis, Russell should have another productive night Friday.
