The Memphis Grizzlies have proven nearly unbeatable over the last month thanks to a continued emphasis on defense.
They put on a stingy performance against the Portland Trail Blazers less than a week ago.
Seeking a 13th victory in 14 games, Memphis hopes to have leading scorer Zach Randolph available as it opens a four-game road trip Tuesday night against Portland.
Holding opponents to an NBA-low 89.4 points per contest, the Grizzlies (42-19) have allowed an even more impressive 84.7 over their last nine.
"Being consistent is probably the biggest thing," coach Lionel Hollins said. "Possession after possession, we come down and we don't make a lot of mistakes on defense."
Memphis is coming off its fourth consecutive victory, 96-85 over New Orleans on Saturday. Mike Conley had 22 points to lead seven players in double figures as the Grizzlies posted their sixth straight victory over a Western Conference foe - their longest such run in almost two years.
