Grizzlies win and tie series

Even without Ja Morant, Memphis used the home factor to even things before two games in LA

The Memphis Grizzlies are having a season of ups and downs. And at the beginning of this series in the Playoffs, it looked like they were going to finish the season on a low pace. After losing Game 1 and also losing Ja Morant, with a hand injury, the Grizzlies managed to win Game 2 and tie the series, which is now 1-1.

With a 103-93 final score, Memphis took advantage of some mistakes from the Lakers. LA didn’t have a great performance overall. This doesn’t mean the Grizzlies played well, only that they had fewer errors. Especially in the first half when they opened a 15-point lead with 59-44 in the score.

Now the series is heading to Los Angeles, where the teams are going to play Games 3 and 4. If one of the teams wins both games, they will have the chance to close the series in Game 5, which will be again in Memphis.
