The Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Lakers meet Monday in Game 4 of the NBA West First Round Playoffs at the crypto.com Arena. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 105.3 points on 42.4 percent shooting and allowing 110.7 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 31.5 points and 7.5 assists, while Jaren Jackson Jr. is averaging 20.7 points and 6.3 rebounds. Desmond Bane is the third double-digit scorer and Dillon Brooks is grabbing 2.3 rebounds. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc and 86 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.3 rebounds per game.

The Los Angeles Lakers are averaging 110.7 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 105.3 points on 42.4 percent shooting. LeBron James is averaging 24.7 points and 10.7 rebounds, while Anthony Davis is averaging 22 points and 12.7 rebounds. Rui Hachimura is the third double-digit scorer and Austin Reaves is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Los Angeles Lakers are shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc and 81.3 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Lakers are allowing 33.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.7 rebounds per game.

The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Lakers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Monday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win. The under is 5-2 in Grizzlies last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 9-2 in Lakers last 11 overall. The Grizzlies are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Los Angeles.

The Memphis Grizzlies have had issues on the road all season, and it's going to take more than Morant for them to find a way to win here. The Grizzlies also lose in the underdog role by an average of 9.7 points. The Los Angeles Lakers are starting to find their groove offensively, and they've played their best at home all year where they win by an average of 3.4 points while shooting 48 percent from the field. I'd need more points to seriously consider the Grizzlies. Give me the Lakers and the reasonable chalk.
