The final score was not indicative of the entire game. The Grizzlies led by as many as 29 before Los Angeles made a late run.

It’s the second time in less than two weeks that the Grizzlies have taken down the Lakers after coming back from a 14-point second-half deficit to defeat them on Dec. 29. It was the final meeting of the year between the two teams and Memphis wins the season series 3-1.

The Lakers fell to 21-20 and had their four-game win streak come to an end. LeBron James led the team with 35 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in the loss.
