Up next for the Lakers: Friday vs. Memphis

The Lakers host Western Conference contender Memphis on Friday night

When: 7:30.

Where: Staples Center.

On the air: TV: TWC SportsNet, TWC Deportes; Radio: 710, 1330.

Records: Lakers 10-22; Grizzlies 23-8.

Record vs. Grizzlies: 0-2.

Update: The Lakers haven't been swept by Memphis since 2004-05 but it becomes a distinct possibility if they lose Friday. The Grizzlies continue to be one of the Western Conference's top surprises thanks to center Marc Gasol's MVP-type season. The Lakers' games against Memphis have been relatively close — a five-point loss in Memphis and a six-point loss at home.
