(SB Nation Los Angeles, Eric Stephen) The Los Angeles Lakers look for their third straight win on Tuesday night as they battle the Memphis Grizzlies at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee. The Lakers beat Memphis 90-82 at Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 8.

The Lakers enter Tuesday with a road record of just 7-14, though they are 7-3 in their last 10 games in Memphis. The Grizzlies are 15-5 at home this season and have won six of their last seven games and 10 of their last 12 contests overall.

Los Angeles and Memphis are separated by just a half a game in the Western Conference, though as the Pacific Division leader the Lakers are holders of the three seed. Lakers guard Derek Fisher is just four points shy of 10,000 in his career. He would be the 308th player in NBA history to reach that plateau.

Wednesday's 5 p.m. PST game will be televised by KCAL.
