Sixers (22-20) at Memphis Grizzlies (16-29)
Monday at 8 p.m., at FedExForum
In addition to keeping an eye on Marc Gasol, the Sixers must contain Chester native Tyreke Evans to snap the undermanned Grizzlies’ four-game home winning streak. Evans is averaging 21.8 points and 6.9 assists over the past 13 games. This game might not a breeze for the Sixers as the Grizzlies’ record might indicate. They have won seven of their last 12 games. That comes after a stretch in which they dropped 19 of 21.
