How to Watch Lakers vs Grizzlies January 5, 2021




, ,

The reigning and defending NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers travel to FedEx Forum to take on the Memphis Grizzlies in a Western Conference showdown. During this, nationally broadcasted contest, reigning Finals MVP LeBron James’ squad will be looking to add to their 3-game win streak against reigning Rookie of the Year Ja Morant’s team.

The Lake Show has picked up right where they left off, as their 5-2 record is currently tied with 2-other teams for best in the West. The defending champs are coming off of a 108-94 victory against the Grizzlies this past Sunday. LeBron James scored a game-high 22 points during a tough road-win.

Memphis was without Ja Morant due to an ankle sprain in their last contest. The 2-4 Grizzlies are currently sitting in the basement of the Western Conference as the worst team. Morant may not be available for tonight’s rematch against Los Angeles, so the team will have to play better to reverse their fortunes from this past Sunday.

There will be no in-person attendance when these teams tip-off at FedEx Forum; however, cord cutters can find out how to watch Lakers vs. Grizzlies below.
