Celtics-Grizzlies Preview

(AP) -- Memphis is trying to establish itself as one of the teams to beat in the Western Conference. With the first difficult portion of their schedule right around the corner, the Grizzlies could use a warmup against one of the struggling teams in the East.

That's not to say they're looking past the Boston Celtics, who visit FedEx Forum on Friday night seeking their first back-to-back victories.

The Grizzlies (10-2) hold the NBA's best record despite a 96-92 loss at Toronto on Wednesday night, a game which offered further evidence of the disparity in the team's play depending on which conference their opponent calls home.
