NEW YORK (TICKER) —The Memphis Grizzlies try to match their season-high four-game winning streak when they cap a three-game road trip on Tuesday against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

The Grizzlies, who won four in a row - one shy of their franchise-record streak - from December 8-13, followed up a 26-point win at Cleveland on Saturday with a 119-106 win at Toronto on Sunday.

Pau Gasol scored a career high-tying 32 points, Stromile Swift added 23 and 13 rebounds and Jason Williams 17 and 12 assists for Memphis, which shot 57 percent.

The Grizzlies are aiming for their first three-game road winning streak since February 16-20, 2001.

The Knicks, who have won back-to-back games, are aiming for their first three-game winning streak since January 18-22.

On Sunday, New York edged Washington, 97-96, in what was likely Michael Jordan’s final game at Madison Square Garden.

Allan Houston scored 28 points, Latrell Sprewell 20 and Shandon Anderson 17 for the Knicks, who made nine 3-pointers to the Wizards’ one.

The Knicks defeated the Grizzlies in Memphis on January 31, 108-102. The Knicks are 10-3 all time against the Grizzlies, including 5-1 here.
