Lakers Dominate Grizzlies

LeBron James and the Lakers came out in front of this franchise's first sellout playoff crowd in a decade and immediately produced one of the greatest first quarters in team history.

The Lakers had a strong start to Game 3, taking a 35-9 lead in the first quarter, thanks to impressive performances from Anthony Davis and LeBron James.

Despite a 24-point fourth quarter from Ja Morant, the Grizzlies could not recover from their slow start and the Lakers held on to win 111-101.

The Lakers tied an NBA record by taking a 26-point lead into the second quarter.

The sellout crowd at the Staples Center was the first for a Lakers playoff game in a decade.

Game 4 of the first-round playoff series between the Lakers and Grizzlies is set to take place on Monday night at the Staples Center.
