The Philadelphia 76ers visit the Memphis Grizzlies Tuesday night trying to end a four-game losing streak before heading into the NBA All-Star break.

The Philadelphia 76ers will try to end a three-game losing streak Tuesday, as they visit the Memphis Grizzlies in a inter-conference match up (8 p.m. ET on Comcast Sports Network) at the FedExForum in Memphis.
