The Lakers came out looking flat at the beginning of the game. This includes LeBron James. While the Memphis Grizzlies came out with a lot of passion.
The Grizzlies were making all the right plays on offense while also playing suffocating defense. At one point, it appeared the Grizzlies were going to blow the game out, but LA did battle back.
LeBron found his groove, as well. He finished the game with 28 points on 12-23 shooting while adding 12 rebounds and 3 assists. In the end, the Grizzlies pulled away from the Lakers, winning 103-93, tying the series at 1-1.
The two teams play next on Saturday at 10:00 PM Eastern Time. Can LeBron and his Lakers bounce back at home? We’ll have to wait and see what happens.
