Memphis (0-3) at Phoenix (1-3) 9:00 pm EST ---------------------------------------------------------------- PHOENIX (Ticker) -- The Memphis Grizzlies look for that elusive first win when they begin a three-game road trip against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night.

Memphis, which is in its first season there has been close in all three games, losing each one by 10 points or less.

In the franchise's final season in Vancouver, it won three of the first four games, only to finish with 23 wins.

This is the second time that the Grizzlies are winless through the first three. The other time was 1996-97 when they began 0-7 en route to 14 wins.

On Sunday, forward Lorenzen Wright celebrated his 26th birthday with a monster game, collecting career highs of 33 points and 26 rebounds.

The Suns have also struggled, losing three of four, including Sunday's tough 103-100 defeat to Houston.

Phoenix held a 15-point lead with 8 1/2 minutes left in the fourth quarter, but let it slip away as Houston finished the game on 30-12 run.

One positive for the Suns is the play of guard Penny Hardaway in the last three games. Hardaway struggled in the season-opener last Tuesday, getting one point in 19 minutes. But in the last three games, he has been Phoenix's leading scorer.

Last season, Phoenix took three of four games, including both matchups at America West Arena. The Suns have posted eight consecutive victories here against the Grizzlies. Their last loss was April 19, 1997.
