Lakers overcome Morant's 40-points, beat Grizzlies 121-118

LOS ANGELES (AP) Carmelo Anthony got the game ball after the Los Angeles Lakers' first victory of the season.

Anthony had just scored a team-high 28 points, moving into ninth place on the NBA's career scoring list, and was asked to make a speech. The 37-year-old Anthony said he was too tired.

Anthony Davis added 22 points and four blocks, and LeBron James scored 19 points as the Lakers overcame Ja Morant's 40-point game and beat the Memphis Grizzlies 121-118 Sunday night.
