Lakers bite the dust once again!
Just when it seemed Los Angeles Lakers have saved their season and are getting ready for a final push towards the playoffs after beating Houston Rockets, the hopes and the optimism fell like a house of cards in the very next game.
Memphis Grizzlies – Done for the season!
With 23-38 record, the visitors are 14th in the Western Conference table. Their season is almost done and dusted as they are out of playoff picture. In the last match, Grizzlies were against Cleveland Cavaliers and lost the match 112-107 at Quicken Loans Arena.
Mike Conley –The 31-year-old has been in fine form this season, averaging a career-high 20.0 points per game in the 2018-19 season. He can pull off the rabbit out of the hat on his day, and Brooklyn Nets found out when he dropped a magnificent 37-point against them earlier in the season.
Jonas Valanciunas – He joined the team during the midseason from Toronto Raptors. At 7ft, the 26-year-old is a presence inside the paint. He scored 25 points in the last match.
Los Angeles Lakers:
LeBron James – The four-time NBA MVP is one of the best players of all time. This is the first season that he is playing in the Western Conference, and he has a fight on his hands as Lakers are in danger of missing out on the playoffs. But he can raise his game if the circumstances demand, and you have to back him to steer the Showtime to the postseason. The former Cleveland Cavaliers star is averaging 26.8 points per game this season. He also leads the rebounds and assists charts for Lakers.
Kyle Kuzma – Still young and learning the trade of being in a big team and with big-name players. But the 23-year-old is talented and that’s beyond doubt. This season, he is averaging 19.1 points per game for Lakers.
