Lakers Vs. Grizzlies: Grammys Road Trip A Harbinger For Lakers

A long road trip in February has become commonplace for the Lakers, as the Grammy Awards have taken place at Staples Center every year but once since it opened in the 1999-2000 season. This year is the 11th time in 12 years that the Lakers have been forced out of their home for an extended period, on a long road trip dubbed the "Grammys Trip." Tonight's game in Memphis is the second game of a seven-game sojourn by the Lakers in this year's edition of the Grammys Trip.

Here's a look at the Lakers' results on all the Grammys Trips:
