Memphis Grizzlies vs. Los Angeles Lakers: Postgame Grades and Analysis for LA

In a game that lacked offensive firepower, the Los Angeles Lakers couldn't come up with timely buckets down the stretch and fell to the Memphis Grizzlies, 89-86, on their home floor. 

Jodie Meeks led the way with a season-high 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting, but the Lakers couldn't overcome a poor shooting night, one that saw them hit on just 43.8 percent of their shots.

The Grizzlies also bested the Lakers on the glass by a margin of 11 rebounds, including a six-board edge on the offensive glass. 

Nick Young, Jordan Hill and Pau Gasol all finished in double figures for the Lakers, but it was Zach Randolph who stole the show with a game-high 28 points on 11-of-18 shooting. 

Marc Gasol, who was matched up against his older brother Pau all night long, threatened to post his first-career triple-double with 18 points, eight assists and eight boards, and he soundly outplayed his sibling in the win. 

With the loss, the Lakers now sit at 4-7 on the season and have lost four of their past five dating back to last Friday.
