NBA Preview from The Sports Network
Monday, November 19th (All times eastern)
Seattle SuperSonics (2-9) at Memphis Grizzlies (2-7), 8 p.m.
(Sports Network) - The Seattle SuperSonics wrap up a five-game road trip this evening against the Memphis Grizzlies at FedExForum.
Seattle, which is a disappointing 2-9 on the season, is 2-2 so far on the trip and had a two-game winning streak stopped with Saturday's 100-84 loss at Charlotte Bobcats Arena.
Chris Wilcox led the way with 24 points and nine boards for Seattle, which was coming off a 126-123 double-overtime triumph at Atlanta Friday on rookie Kevin Durant's three-pointer at the buzzer. Durant had 16 points on just 3-of-12 shooting Saturday night against the Bobcats.
In injury news for the Sonics, center Robert Swift (knee) and forward Kurt Thomas (hamstring) are both questionable for Monday's game.
Memphis is not playing so hot this season either with a 2-7 record, and has dropped three straight and five of its last six games. In Saturday's 108-105 loss to the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center, Mike Miller had 23 points in a losing cause.
Hakim Warrick had 17 points and Pau Gasol added 15 points in the loss for Memphis, which will open a short homestand versus Seattle and Toronto.
Memphis rookie guard Mike Conley (shoulder) left Saturday's game against Dallas, while center Darko Milicic (thumb) missed the contest. Both players are questionable for Monday.
Seattle went 2-1 against Memphis last season and has won nine of the last 13 meetings.
The Sonics have won six of eight and nine of the last 12 at the Grizzlies.
