Tyus Jones and De'Anthony Melton added 12 points each as the Grizzlies won without starting guards Ja Morant and Dillon Brooks, who are in COVID-19 protocol. Brooks was a late scratch after playing Wednesday.

The Grizzlies have won six of their last seven games, all since Morant originally went to the sideline last month with a left knee sprain.

LeBron James scored 20 points with 10 rebounds and 11 assists for the Lakers to record the 100th triple-double of his career. Anthony Davis had 22 points with eight rebounds for Los Angeles, which is just 3-5 on the road since Nov. 1.

The Lakers got off to a fast start, taking a 26-17 lead with 2:18 remaining in the first quarter on a 3-pointer by Carmelo Anthony. But Memphis stormed back to lead by as many as eight in the second quarter and took a 59-53 lead into the break after 14 Los Angeles turnovers.

The Lakers pushed in front by four near the midway point of the third quarter, before the Grizzlies closed the period on a 17-6 run to take an 85-78 lead heading into the fourth.

Memphis grabbed the first double-digit lead by either team when it went up 88-78 on Bane's 3-pointer with 11:46 remaining. A 16-7 run by Memphis to open the final quarter was capped by Jackson's 3-pointer and gave the Grizzlies a 101-85 lead with 5:43 to play.

Steven Adams had 13 rebounds for Memphis, which had 18 steals and forced the Lakers into 22 turnovers.

Avery Bradley and Talen Horton-Tucker had 10 points each for Los Angeles. The Lakers, who had scored at least 110 points in six consecutive games, dropped the opener of a road back-to-back that heads to Oklahoma City on Friday.

Grizzlies: Jaren Jackson Jr. 25 (7/10 2PT, 2/8 3PT, 5/6 FT, 5 REB, 3 STL), Desmond Bane 23 (4/9 2PT, 5/11 3PT), De'Anthony Melton 12 (2/6 3PT, 6 AST), Tyus Jones 12 (3/8 2PT, 2/6 3PT, 6 AST).

Lakers: Anthony Davis 22 (8/14 2PT, 8 REB), LeBron James 20 (6/9 2PT, 1/6 3PT 5/5 FT, 10 REB, 11 AST, 4 STL, 2 BLK, 5 TO), Talen Horton-Tucker 10 (5/9 2PT, 5 AST), Avery Bradley 10 (2/2 3PT).
