In a crucial game against the Memphis Grizzlies, the Los Angeles Lakers found themselves on the winning side, but not without controversy. 

A game clock malfunction during the match gave the Lakers an unexpected advantage, leaving the Grizzlies frustrated. 

During the third quarter, a mistake by the clock operator in Memphis led to both the shot and game clocks being reset.

As a result, the quarter lasted 66 seconds longer than usual, giving LeBron James and the Lakers more time to try and secure the win. Despite being outscored by the Grizzlies in this extended quarter, the Lakers managed to pull off a 123-120 victory.

LeBron James stood out with a game-high 37 points in 41 minutes of play. This win has improved the Lakers' record to 46-35, positioning them for the #8 seed in the upcoming Play-In Tournament.

While the Lakers' win was hard-fought, the game clock error has sparked debate about whether the NBA occasionally favors star players and big-market teams like the Lakers. Critics argue that such incidents can affect the fairness of the game and the league's credibility.

The Lakers now await their Play-In Tournament match against either the Phoenix Suns or the New Orleans Pelicans. A win in this game will allow them to dodge the defending champions, the Denver Nuggets, in the first round of the playoffs.
