Lakers vs Grizzlies prediction

The Lakers should win this game comfortably for obvious reasons, and there’s motivation to show up as they’re fighting to get out of the 10th seed in the west. However, the Lakers are 37-43 ATS on the season and LeBron is dealing with an ankle injury and remains questionable. The Grizzlies continue to play hard despite the roster limitations, and they’ve covered 4 of their last 6 games. The Grizzlies have 39 covers on the season. This is a ton of points, and the Lakers should be focused on winning and getting out, not putting up style points. Give me the points with the Grizzlies.
