The Grizzlies got a massive win over the Rockets to open the season and believe this is the year they can take a massive jump. Ja Morant is emerging as a star point guard, and Jaren Jackson Jr. should put up big numbers with Jonas Valanciunas gone. Memphis made the playoffs from the play-in tournament last season, but wants to avoid that this season.
The Lakers have gotten off to a rough start, losing games to the Warriors and Suns within the division. LeBron James has been solid, but Russell Westbrook is still getting acclimated to his new teammates. Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard had a tense moment on the sideline in Friday’s contest, and suggests the locker room might not be as tight as it seems. This roster underwent major turnover in the offseason and will likely need some time to figure everything out.
