(SportsNetwork.com) - The Toronto Raptors look to stay hot as they host the streaking Memphis Grizzlies at Air Canada Centre on Friday. Watch the Grizzlies vs. Raptors live tonight on TSN at 7pm et/4pm pt. The Grizzlies are seventh in the Western Conference and have won four in a row and 11 of their last 14 games, including an exciting 90-88 triumph at New Orleans Wednesday in the opener of a three-game road trip. Grizzlies guard Mike Conley lifted a layup over Hornets big man Anthony Davis with 1.5 seconds remaining for the game-winner. Conleys steal earlier set up a Tony Allen basket to make it 88-88 with 1:16 to go. New Orleans then missed its next three shots and Conley lifted Memphis to victory with a clutch shot. Conley had 16 points, Marc Gasol added 15 and both Zach Randolph and Allen netted 13 points. "It was a pretty win; everybody fought," Randolph said. "We came together, stepped it up, and it was a game. It was a team win." Since the All-Star break, the Grizzlies are averaging 101.1 points. Theyre still one of the best on defense this season, allowing just 94.8 ppg -- third- best in the NBA. Memphis will close the trip Saturday in Philadelphia and has an 18-12 mark away from FedExForum. It is 35-15 against teams outside the Southwest Division and 34-6 when outshooting the opposition. The Atlantic Division-leading Raptors have been playing just as well as the Grizzlies with wins in 10 of the last 13 games. They opened a three-game homestand with Wednesdays 101-87 besting of the Detroit Pistons, as DeMar DeRozan did his thing with 25 points and Amir Johnson added 20 and nine rebounds. DeRozan is averaging 23.8 points in the last 11 games. Kyle Lowry scored 19 points for Toronto, which prevailed for the third straight time at home and is 19-12 at Air Canada Centre. The Raptors, who are 15-4 in their last 19 home games, were able to snatch a win despite shooting 42 percent from the field. "We didnt shoot the ball that well, but pretty or not pretty, its a win for us, much needed," Raptors point guard Greivis Vasquez said. "Were playing good basketball. I think over the last two or three weeks we have been playing good basketball." Toronto is third in the East standings -- one game ahead of Chicago -- and three games in front of Brooklyn for Atlantic bragging rights. The Raptors will close the residency Sunday versus Phoenix and will try to sweep a season series from Memphis for the first time since 2007-08 (2-0).

With a stable of running backs now complementing quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Packers could be as potent as ever this year. Rodgers threw for two touchdowns, Eddie Lacy rumbled for a 1-yard score on the Packers opening drive and prized free agent acquisition Julius Peppers recorded his first sack of the preseason in the Packers 31-21 victory Friday night over the Oakland Raiders. "I think were ready. I think its been a good preseason. Scored some points, moved the ball," Rodgers said. "We have 13 days until the game." That would refer to the season opener Sept. 4 in Seattle against the Super Bowl champion Seahawks. The Raiders host Seattle next week to wrap up the preseason with a few defensive injuries. The game was stopped for several minutes in the second quarter after Raiders linebacker Sio Moore was taken off the field, and coach Dennis Allen said "the initial word is really mostly a neck strain." Moore lifted a thumb to acknowledge a crowd that gave him a standing ovation while he was taken off on a stretcher. He had tests at a hospital before returning to Lambeau Field. "I dont know what kind of timeline that means, but obviously the most encouraging thing is that Sios fine," Allen said. Oakland also lost two other defensive starters to head injuries in cornerback Tarell Brown and linebacker Nick Roach. A first-team defence that allowed three touchdown drives in four possessions in the first two preseason games had its ups and down against Rodgers, who finished 9 of 20 for 139 yards playing into the second quarter. The 2011 NFL MVPs completion rate would have been higher if not for a handful of drops. He connected on touchdowns to tight end Andrew Quarless and receiver Jordy Nelson. Lacy just played in the first series, but the 2013 Offensive Rookie of the Year had the Raiders on their heels. He finished with six rushes for 36 yards and the touchdown. DuJuan Harris, third on the running back depth chart, added 56 yards on 12 carries, and added 42 yards on two catches.dddddddddddd Last years backup running back, James Starks, had nine yards on seven carries. A Raiders defence that allowed an average of 89.5 yards over the first weeks allowed 78 in the first half. "Its a long season, so with three backs we should be able to stay fresh and be able to go fast the whole season," Lacy said. Houston quarterback Matt Schaub played into the third, finishing 13 of 27 for 110 yards for Oakland. Backup Matt McGloin threw for two fourth-quarter touchdowns to Brice Butler, from 19 and 28 yards. McGloin finished 10 of 17 for 162 yards. The game inched along by the middle of the third quarter with the Packers up by three scores and backups littering both lineups. The Raiders only touchdown came on their second series of the first half after a handful of missed tackles helped Maurice Jones-Drew dart 40 yards for a score to tie it at 7. The Packers first-team defence held Oakland scoreless from there. "Yeah, really our No. 1 defence, we had that big play we gave up. Other than that, I thought we dominated the line of scrimmage," coach Mike McCarthy said. Besides the sack, Peppers also stood up Raiders running back Darren McFadden in traffic for a short gain around left end. It was just the kind of big-play production McCarthy was hoping to get from Peppers when the Packers signed the former Chicago Bear as a free agent. Green Bay did lose defensive lineman B.J. Raji to an arm injury. He remained on the sideline for much of the game with a black sleeve on his arm, and McCarthy said Raji "felt confident" about the injury. The Raiders again struggled to produce under Schaub, who was signed as a free agent from the Houston Texans. Oakland had four straight three-and-outs at one point in the first half, then turned the ball over at the Packers 26 late in the second quarter after Schaub fumbled on a sack by Nick Perry. "We better be close to being ready for the regular season here shortly," Schaub said. "Got off to a good start ... and then you know, we sort of stubbed our toe a few times there, especially in the second quarter." ' ' '
