LOS ANGELES -- Playing the Memphis Grizzlies on any given night is like signing up for an MMA fight. The Grizz are among the NBA's most physical teams. Nothing comes easy against them and their stout defense, which gives up a league-low 89.8 points a game. Of course that's nothing new for the Los Angeles Lakers in difficult season. The next thing that comes easy for the Lakers will be the first.
