Grizzlies fall to lowly Lakers—Again
LOS ANGELES – D’Angelo Russell scored 28 points and three Los Angeles Lakers had double-doubles in a 108-103 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday.
Memphis fell to 42-35, staying 1 1/2 games back of Oklahoma City for the sixth spot in the Western Conference with five games to play.
Mike Conley had 20 points and had 12 assists for the Grizzlies, but missed a 3-pointer with 6.3 seconds left that would have tied the score. Troy Daniels also had 20 points for Memphis.
Julius Randle had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Lakers, while Larry Nance Jr. added 12 points and 14 boards. Thomas Robinson finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds, the first time the Lakers had three double-doubles in a game since Dec. 16, 2014 (Wesley Johnson, Jordan Hill and Ed Davis).
The Lakers are tied with Phoenix with the NBA’s third-worst record (22-55).
