Brooklyn Nets (21-30) at Memphis Grizzlies (38-13), 8 p.m. (ET)

(SportsNetwork.com) – The Memphis Grizzlies got back into the win column in a
very big way last time out and will try to start a new streak Tuesday night
when they host the Brooklyn Nets at FedExForum.

The Grizzlies had an eight-game winning streak snapped on Friday night in
Minnesota, but collected a huge victory Sunday, a 94-88 home triumph over the
Atlanta Hawks.

Mike Conley scored 21 points and the Grizzlies scored eight of the final 10
points to down the Hawks in a playoff-like atmosphere at FedExForum. The
Grizzlies’ late push over the final three minutes helped them rebound from
Friday’s surprising loss to the Timberwolves.

Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph each posted double-doubles and combined for 27
points and 25 rebounds for Memphis, which shot 19-of-21 from the foul line and
won the rebounding battle 55-37.

“Really good win for us against a very good team. We all know how good they
are,” Grizzlies coach David Joerger said.

Jeff Green finished with 11 points and Kosta Koufos chipped in 10 off the
bench.

Memphis shot under 40 percent for the game and just over 23 percent from
behind the 3-point arc. They made nine more free throws than Atlanta and
committed three less turnovers.

The Grizzlies play in Oklahoma City on Wednesday and continue their road trip
after the break against the Portland Trail Blazers, Los Angeles Clippers and
Sacramento Kings.

The Nets know a little something about road trips. They are 0-2 on this eight-
game sojourn, which ends for the All-Star break following Tuesday’s game in
Memphis.

After the All-Star weekend, which Brooklyn co-hosts with the New York Knicks,
the Nets visit the Lakers, Nuggets, Pelicans, Rockets and Mavericks.

The Nets fell to the Milwaukee Bucks, 103-97, on Monday night.

Jarrett Jack pumped in 26 points with eight assists and Joe Johnson accounted
for 19 points to go along with six assists for the Nets, who have lost two
straight since a three-game winning streak.

The Nets cut their deficit to 89-84 at the midway point of the fourth.

Milwaukee went up 11 after a Jerryd Bayless layup with over two minutes left
prior to Jack netting five points in a 23-second span. Brook Lopez was
whistled for a technical foul after a shooting foul on Zaza Pachulia and the
Bucks made 2-of-3 from the line to restore an eight-point cushion.

“We had our chances, played well,” said Nets coach Lionel Hollins. “We just
couldn’t make plays when we needed to.”

The Grizzlies beat the Nets in Brooklyn on Jan. 14 after the Nets swept last
season’s series. The two teams have split the last eight meetings on Beale
Street.
