Grizzlies-Timberwolves Preview

(AP) -- The Memphis Grizzlies can hardly afford to get bogged down in a lengthy losing streak in a competitive Southwest Division and will try to end their brief skid in a visit to Western Conference's last-place team.

The Grizzlies, though, couldn't pull out a road win over the Minnesota Timberwolves earlier this month and will try for a better result Saturday night.

Memphis (41-16) has seen its 3 1/2-game lead over Houston in the division dip to 1 1/2 after back-to-back losses and four consecutive wins by the Rockets. It's also just 3 1/2 games ahead of third-place Dallas.
