The Memphis Grizzlies and Ja Morant tried so hard to send the Los Angeles Lakers to an 0-3 start to the season.
They were oh, so close. Morant was fouled with two seconds left shooting a three-pointer and got three free throws. Morant made the first two with ease. Then came the third one.
Morant, the former NBA Rookie of the Year winner, finished with 40 points and 10 assists for Memphis.
The Lakers finally got their first win of the year with Carmelo Anthony, who scored 28 points coming off the bench. He surpassed Moses Malone to become the ninth all-time scorer in NBA history.
It was also the first win for Russell Westbrook, who had 13 points, 13 assists and seven rebounds.
After three straight home games, the Lakers will go to Texas to take on the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night.
