Last Wednesday, Memphis was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as they lost 116-111 to Toronto.

Despite the loss, the Grizzlies got a solid performance from Ja Morant, who scored 28 points along with nine assists and eight rebounds. Less helpful for the Grizzlies was Marcus Smart’s abysmal 0-5 three-point shot.

Meanwhile, the Lakers’ recent rough patch got a little more difficult on Wednesday after their third straight loss. They suffered a 110-96 loss from Miami. The Lakers have discovered that it’s not easy to win when you make 12 fewer threes than your opponent.
