The Memphis Grizzlies have won nine straight at home as they get ready to welcome a Boston Celtics team that has dropped three straight.
The Celtics, however, have won their last five visits to the FedEx Forum as they try to avoid being swept by the Grizzlies for the first time in 12 years Saturday night.
Both teams are seeking to bounce back from Friday road defeats. Memphis (46-22) fell 90-83 to New Orleans and Boston (36-32) lost 104-94 to Dallas.
The Grizzlies may have a better chance to recover because they are enjoying their longest run at home since winning their final 11 contests in Memphis last season.
The Celtics did not visit in 2011-12, and they haven't lost there since a 93-76 defeat March 14, 2006. It has been even longer since they dropped two meetings with the Grizzlies in the same season, last doing so in 2000-01 when the franchise was based in Vancouver.
Memphis won 93-83 at Boston on Jan. 2 behind Mike Conley's 23 points and a 39-27 rebounding edge.
