The San Antonio Spurs (14-7) will visit the Memphis Grizzlies (7-13) tonight as the Spurs will look to extend their winning streak to 4-straight. The Spurs will be without Kawhi Leonard and Derrick White due to injury while Memphis will be without guard Mike Conley.

The Spurs are coming off a 104-95 win over the Grizzlies. LaMarcus Aldridge had 41 points in the win, a career-high with the Spurs. Tony Parker had 10 points in his second game back from injury.

And as the Spurs look to hand Memphis their 10th loss in a row, here are five things to watch in tonight's game:

  1. Memphis is 4-7 at home and average 98.3 points per game and have won the last two meetings in Memphis versus San Antonio.
  2. In their last five games, Memphis is averaging 92.2 points per game while allowing 100.2 points by the opposition.
  3. Memphis has allowed an opponent to score 30-or-more points in a quarter in every game this season but one versus Portland.
  4. In the last three games, Spurs' Aldridge is averaging 30.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.0 blocks.
  5. San Antonio improved Wednesday to 11-0 when scoring at least 100 points and is the only team in the NBA this season that is undefeated when reaching the century mark.
