What you need to know about the Lakers
The Lakers suffered a tough blow as they fell 127-113 to the Memphis Grizzlies for their fourth consecutive loss on Friday. LeBron James scored 32 points to go along with seven assists and five rebounds and Austin Reaves dropped a double-double with 19 points and 12 assists.

Anthony Davis also had 31 points in the defeat and is averaging 25.3 points, 12.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.6 blocks per game this season. Davis is listed as probable for Sunday’s game with an ankle injury and the Lakers are 0-2 this season without Davis in the lineup, so his status will be critical.
