Ten games on the way
(AP) — The top team in the NBA is in action tonight as Memphis visits Houston. The Grizzlies sport a 15-2 mark while also riding a five game winning streak. The Rockets have also been playing well with seven wins in the last ten outings and a 13-4 start.
While Memphis is tops in the Western Conference, Toronto owns that mark in the east at 14-4. The Raptors visit Utah tonight. The Jazz have lost six straight.
Philadelphia can inch closer to the record books for futility tonight when they visit Minnesota. The 76ers, still without a win this season, are just the fourth team in league history to open with 17 losses. Philadelphia can tie the Nets for the worst start in NBA history with a loss tonight, then break the record at home Friday against Oklahoma City. The Timberwolves have also been struggling with just four wins in their first 16 games.
The rest of the contests have the Los Angeles Lakers at Washington, Charlotte home to Chicago, Atlanta at Miami, Boston entertaining Detroit, San Antonio visiting Brooklyn, and Dallas on the road at Milwaukee, while Orlando plays at the L.A. Clippers.
