The Los Angeles Lakers, who have the best record in the Western Conference (41-12) at the moment, will host the seventh-place Memphis Grizzlies (28-27) on Friday at Staples Center. LeBron James, via Sports Illustrated per Melissa Rohlin, shared his view about upcoming match and the rest of the regular season games.

“We play the Memphis Grizzlies and we need to go at them as we know they’re going to go at us, And we just build on that.”

The stretch run, we know how important it is, how important every game is, and how we continue to get better and better and better each and every day,” LeBron James said at Lakers practice Thursday. “It’s all part of the process. Can’t shortcut the process. We’re not going to think too far ahead. We’re going to approach tomorrow like this is our own Game 7”

Heading into the final stretch, James said he intends to lead by example.

“For me, personally, it’s my leadership, it’s the way I play the game, it’s the way I approach the game,” James said. “It’s my mindset to lead these guys every night we go on the floor. So I’m looking forward to these next 29.”
