7 p.m. vs. Memphis • Target Center • FSN Plus, 830-AM
Preview: The Grizzlies (30-22) had won three consecutive games, four of five and five of seven before losing 114-102 Friday at Oklahoma City. That winning streak came on the road, with victories at Utah, Phoenix and Denver after they had opened a six-game trip with a loss at Portland. … This completes the four-game season series. The two teams played each other three times in the season’s first three weeks: The Grizzlies won both times in Memphis (including opening night) and the Wolves won 116-80 at home after the Grizzlies rested stars PG Mike Conley and C Marc Gasol.
Players to watch: Gasol last week scored a career-high 42 points in a victory over Toronto. That’s the first 40-point game by a Memphis player since Rudy Gay scored 21 in December 2009 and the most since his brother, Pau, scored 43 in January 2008. Gasol had 31 points on 14-for-24 shooting Friday night, and he also had eight assists. Voted a reserve by Western Conference coaches, this month’s All-Star Game appearance will be his third, the most in franchise history. … Conley is just one of five active NBA players who has played his entire career of at least 10 seasons with the same franchise: Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki, San Antonio’s Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker, Seattle/Oklahoma City’s Nick Collison are the only others.
Injuries: Grizzlies G Wade Baldwin IV and F Jarell Martin are on D-League assignments and not with the team.
