Pistons look for consecutive wins at Memphis.

The Detroit Pistons (12-25) hit the road on Saturday night to take on the Memphis Grizzlies (21-15).

The Pistons look to make it two wins in a row after beating the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night but they will need a strong performance to slow down the Grizzlies. Memphis is riding a three-game winning streak after beating the Toronto Raptors on Friday night which also gave Memphis their seventh win in the last eight games.

Rudy Gay led the Grizzlies last night with 23 points, four above his team-leading average of 19 points per game. While slowing down Gay is key for the Pistons, Greg Monroe will need to continue his high level of play and win his matchup with Memphis All-Star Marc Gasol.
