Shootaround Report: Lakers Eye Win Against Memphis Grizzlies

After trying a few different lineups in the season, Mike D’Antoni may have found one that he can keep consistent. With Steve Nash expected to be out for at least another week, Steve Blake has become the first option at point guard for the Lakers. Blake has not disappointed dishing out 10 assists against the New Orleans Pelicans and 11 assists against the Denver Nuggets. Jordan Hill has also impressed bringing in much needed energy fighting for rebounds and providing some offense, including a career-high 21 points since being inserted into the starting lineup. Tonight the Lakers are back at home and will be hosting the Memphis Grizzlies who have been struggling this season. Pau Gasol will be taking on his younger brother Marc Gasol and the Lakers will look to deny the Grizzlies their first road victory of the season.

What will be the keys for a Lakers victory tonight? What are D’Antoni’s thoughts on Steve Nash returning?
