LeBron should be without DeAngelo Russell again this evening and has a beautiful matchup in the Grizzlies. They allow the 10th most assists to PG and the 6th most rebounds to power forwards in the last 30 days. This is all about the matchup. Jaren Jackson will be on Bron encouraging him to pass more. Without Russell, LeBron has great usage and has averaged over 10 assists per game. Then on the rebound side of things, LeBron has had 6+ R in 3 of 4 games without Rui averaging 7.5. Another great matchup vs Memphis as JJJ doesn't crash the offensive glass that much. In the playoff series vs MEM last year, LeBron averaged 10.63 rebounds.
This is a beautiful matchup for LeBron!
