LeBron, Kuzma lead Lakers to easy win over Grizzlies

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers weren't about to let fatigue get the better of them on the second night of a back-to-back.

The Lakers recovered from a loss Friday night in San Antonio to dominate Memphis, defeating the Grizzlies 111-88 on Saturday, led by 20 points each from James and Kyle Kuzma. James added nine assists and eight rebounds, while Kuzma had nine rebounds, six assists and a couple of blocks.

"At the end of the day, we're professionals. We come out, our job is to bring energy regardless of playing back-to-backs or 40 minutes or whatever," said Kuzma, who was among four Lakers starters who played at least 36 minutes in the 133-120 loss to the Spurs.
