Unbeaten Grizzlies take on Suns
(AP) — Memphis heads into tonight’s meeting with Phoenix boasting the top defense in the NBA and a perfect record. The 4-0 Grizzlies are off to their best start in franchise history. Marc Gasol tops Memphis offensively with a 24.7 scoring average.
On the other side of the spectrum are Orlando and the 76ers. They meet tonight in Philadelphia, both looking for their first win of the season. The Magic have dropped their first four games for the first time since going 0-6 to open the 1990-91 season. The Magic are hardly road warriors. They’ve gone 4-39 away from home since last season. The 0-4 76ers are in a rebuilding mode, focusing on developing young talent.
Miami tries to climb back on the winning train when they travel to Charlotte tonight. The Heat suffered their first loss of the season at home last night to unbeaten Houston. The 1-3 Hornets will be trying to shake off a three-game losing streak.
There are 12 games on tonight’s schedule.
