The Brooklyn Nets are on the road Friday to open a 3-game trip with their single visit to the Memphis Grizzlies this season for an 8 p.m. Eastern tip.

The Brooklyn Nets — winners of 10 of their last 13 games — visit a Memphis Grizzlies squad that has dropped eight of its last 10 in an 8 p.m. Eastern tip from FedEx Forum in Memphis.
