The Los Angeles Lakers won their 42nd game of the 2019-20 NBA season on Saturday night, beating the Memphis Grizzlies.
Los Angeles topped Memphis, 117-105, to improve to 42-12 on the season. The Grizzlies, meanwhile, dropped to 28-28 on the year with the loss.
LeBron James led the way for the Lakers in the win, pouring in 32 points, seven assists and three rebounds in the victory. His running mate, Anthony Davis, had a big game, too. Davis totaled 28 points, 13 rebounds and four assists in the win.
Ja Morant, the Rookie of the Year frontrunner, had 17 points and three assists in the loss. He shared a cool postgame moment with LeBron, too.
LeBron made sure to tell Morant to reach out whenever he needs anything – on or off the court.
“Whatever you need, on and off,” LeBron told Morant.
“Whatever you need, on and off.”
LeBron let Ja know he has his back. ✊

The NBA is a brotherhood and it’s cool to see LeBron taking that so seriously. Morant is one of the league’s rising stars and there is no one better to learn from than LeBron when it comes to taking the next step, on or off the court.
