It was another almost-doesn't-count finish on Tuesday night (Dec. 17) at the FedExForum as the Memphis Grizzlies fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 96-92.
The loss was the fourth in a row for the reeling Grizzlies.
Entering the contest, the two teams had similar records (Grizzlies 10-13, Lakers 11-13) and plenty of injuries. Memphis played without starting point guard Mike Conley (thigh), All-Star center Marc Gasol (knee) and forward Quincy Pondexter (foot). The Lakers were missing point guards Steve Nash (back), Steve Blake (elbow) and Jordan Farmar (hamstring).
