MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The Grizzlies are happy to be back in Memphis, where they finished the regular season by winning a franchise-record 14 straight games.

They brought home-court advantage with them.

To guard Mike Conley, that ratchets up the pressure even more. It's time for the Grizzlies to protect the place they call the Grindhouse.

The Grizzlies evened up this first-round Western Conference series by winning 111-105 in overtime at Oklahoma City on Monday, and Conley says Game 3 on Thursday is going to be tough because the Thunder have played very well on the road. But he says the Grizzlies are happy with their position.

The Thunder practiced at home Wednesday before traveling to Memphis. Oklahoma City had the NBA's second-best road record in the regular season.
