The Lakers have really started to pick it up lately with LeBron leading the way, but the problem with the Lakers is their 21st ranked defense. The Spurs poured 133 on the Lakers in their last game. The Grizzlies are a tough team and just beat the a very good New Orleans team. This one could go either way, but the Grizzlies opened at +1 and the smart money backing Memphis and I'll follow.

Lakers Nation: Lakers Vs. Grizzlies: Michael Beasley Leaves Team Due To Family Health Matter
In addition to the Los Angeles Lakers not having Brandon Ingram (sprained ankle) and Rajon Rondo (hand surgery) as their two-game road trip concludes Saturday night, Michael Beasley will also be out as he's left the team to tend to a family health matter.
This marks a third time this season Beasley has been excused by the Lakers. The first instance came Oct. 29 when the veteran forward did not suit up for a road contest against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Beasley returned to practice one week later. He was then forced to leave minutes before tipoff against the Atlanta Hawks on Nov.
