Sixers vs Grizzlies: Philadelphia travels to surging Memphis

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

76ers will try to end their road losing streak as they visit the Grizzlies on Wednesday night.

The Philadelphia 76ers head to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies on Wednesday at 8:00 pm ET.

The Grizzlies have won five of their last six games and are 12-2 at home this season, which doesn't bode well for a 76ers team that has struggled on the road this season having lost their last six outside of their building.

The Sixers opened their current eight-game road trip with a loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday. It doesn't get any easier with a Grizzlies team that should be playing angry after a no-show against the Houston Rockets on Dec. 22 when they lost 121-96.

The Grizzlies are currently fourth in the Western Conference at 18-7 and sport the second-best scoring defense in the league, allowing only 90.5 points per game. Meanwhile, the Sixers are 13-15 and in ninth place in the Eastern Conference as they trail the Nets and the Boston Celtics for the seventh and eighth spots.
