Preview: The Grizzlies ended a two-game losing streak by beating Houston 103-94 on Friday night. They had lost three of four before the vicotry, although all three of those losses were on the road: at New Orleans, Washington and New York. … Saturday’s game is the third and final game of the season series. The Grizzles won the first two, both in Memphis: 105-88 on Feb. 10 and 92-77 nearly two weeks ago.

Players to watch: The Grizzlies are moving the ball better since that Jan. 30 trade that sent Rudy Gay to Toronto and upset coach Lionel Hollins and Memphis players so. With Tayshaun Prince, Austin Daye and Ed Davis on board, the Grizzlies are assisting on 59.2 percent of their made field goals. That’s 17th in the league compared to 56.8 percent and 25th in the league before the trade was made. …Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley averaged 17.7 points and 7.2 assists with 44.3 percent shooting in the 15 games leading into Friday’s game against the Rockets. He also had recorded a steal in a franchise-record 62 consecutive games.

Injuries: Wolves F Kevin Love (hand surgery), G Brandon Roy (knees) and G Malcolm Lee (hip, knee surgeries) are out. Memphis C Marc Gasol has played the past two games after missing two games because of an abdominal tear.
