Memphis Grizzlies (19-51) at 76ers (39-30)

Wednesday at 7 p.m., at the Wells Fargo Center

Talking points

The tank is real when it comes to the Memphis Grizzlies. They have lost 20 of their last 21 games while boasting the league's second-worst record. However, Memphis has won the previous 10 series meetings with the Sixers. A 12 ½-point favorite over the Grizzlies, the Sixers are expected to end that skid.
