Saturday game preview: Memphis Grizzlies at Toronto Raptors
Sports
Kyle Lowry, who is still working his way back to full health after missing about a month with a back injury, led the Raptors with 24 points and six assists the last time these two teams met in late November, his third highest scoring output of the season. He hasn’t scored 20 points since Dec. 22 against Philadelphia, the lone game he played in the midst of his back issues. Mike Conley leads the Grizzlies with 19.9 points and 6.2 assists per game. The all-star candidate will provide another much-needed measuring stick for where Lowry is at.
