KEY GAME INFORMATION
DENVER: GUARDS: TY LAWSON has emerged as the closest thing to a No. 1 option on this team, and despite his size, he's proven capable of playing full-time minutes. He'll continue to post big numbers in an up-tempo system that suits him perfectly . . . ANDRE MILLER will both back up Lawson and share the court with him at times (though Andre Iguodala figures to play a lot of two this season). The steady veteran is one of the league's most underrated sixth men . . . It's a bit surprising that EVAN FOURNIER is making the jump to the NBA this year. His size and skill combo will be nice on the wing one day, but he's unlikely to contribute this year . . . JULYAN STONE will be out until January after offseason hip surgery, but he should be Lawson's main backup upon his return. FORWARDS: DANILO GALLINARI is their most complete offensive player. If healthy, he's capable of being a 20-PPG scorer . . . ANDRE IGUODALA should enjoy the much faster pace Denver plays at. He'll see full-time minutes between both wing spots . . . KENNETH FARIED isn't a skilled big, but he's a high-energy guy who can get his own points off offensive rebounds . . . WILSON CHANDLER could end up leading their second unit in minutes and points . . . COREY BREWER is a front office favorite. He'll stay in the rotation as a defensive presence/glue guy . . . JORDAN HAMILTON could break into the rotation. He's one-dimensional, but has the offensive skills . . . Denver will try to solve the ANTHONY RANDOLPH riddle. Don't expect it to happen this year. CENTERS: Denver is all-in on internet punchline JaVALE McGEE. They'll give the athletic 7-footer every chance to become the star they think he can be. Whether the flaky McGee can capitalize is questionable . . . TIMOFEY MOZGOV is one of the NBA's best screeners, but his touches will be limited . . . KOSTA KOUFOS has quietly developed into a usable rotation player, but he might be squeezed out of minutes.
MEMPHIS: GUARDS: The Grizzlies will scale back MIKE CONLEY's minutes a bit. He's a quality starting point guard, but seemed to lose some pep as last season wore on . . . TONY ALLEN figures to see more playing time now that O.J. Mayo is gone. He's an outstanding defender who will be the fifth option on offense . . . JERRYD BAYLESS figures to become the new sixth man and Allen platoon partner. He'll also spell Conley at the point, leading to solid minutes for the combo guard . . . Second-year man JOSH SELBY has a chance for a rotation spot after starring in the Summer League. He has big offensive upside . . . WAYNE ELLINGTON seems like an emergency plan for the second unit . . . This is likely a redshirt year for talented, but erratic, rookie TONY WROTEN. FORWARDS: RUDY GAY is going to lead the Grizzlies in touches and shots. He's not shy about looking for iso situations . . . ZACH RANDOLPH had trouble getting back into the flow after his knee injury. It's always been a fragile balance with Z-Bo, and he could be an odd man out going forward . . . MARREESE SPEIGHTS should be the offensive focal point of the bench unit as their sixth man . . . QUINCY PONDEXTER is a versatile defensive piece who will see solid minutes off the bench. He's a non-factor offensively, though . . . DARRELL ARTHUR suffered a non-displaced fractured in his leg in late September, and will not likely be ready when the season begins. A rising young big, his role will depend on when his athleticism comes back. CENTERS: The Grizzlies are at their best when MARC GASOL is getting touches and shots on the offensive end. Whether or not Gay and Randolph are willing to share is a concern, but Gasol has to be aggressive when the ball is in his hands . . . HAMED HADDADI will continue to play limited minutes off the bench.

*Nuggets-Grizzlies Preview* ===========================

By JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

Denver (17-14) at Memphis (18-8), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Memphis Grizzlies' normally elite defense has fallen into a lull of late, costing them back-to-back losses in the process.

Memphis will need a return to its stout form Saturday night as it plays host to a Denver Nuggets team that is shooting extremely well and looking to beat the Grizzlies for the third time this season.

The Grizzlies (18-8) were 14-3 before losing five of their last nine, but the last two results have been especially glaring. They still rank near the top of the league in points allowed per game (90.8) and field-goal percentage defense (43.5), but they haven't looked like it in two straight defeats.

Memphis had no answer for Houston's high-scoring attack last Saturday, losing 121-96 - allowing 20 more points than its previous high by the Clippers in the season opener, with those being the only two times the Grizzlies have surrendered 100 this season.

Philadelphia nearly made it happen again Wednesday, shooting 52.1 percent in a 99-89 victory in Memphis.

"We just had no energy," said Zach Randolph, who leads Memphis in rebounding at 12.6 per game and is second with 17.1 points per game.

"We played hard, but couldn't run anymore. We didn't get stops. They had open jump shots all night. It's a combination of them playing well and taking advantage of us."

The Grizzlies were outscored on the fast break by a combined 49-5 in the last two games, and the Rockets and 76ers combined to go 21 of 44 (47.7 percent) from 3-point range.

That could mean trouble against Denver. The Nuggets (17-14) have won three of four, including two in a row in which they hit a season-best 12 3-pointers each time. They had made more than seven from beyond the arc only five times in their first 29 games.

The Nuggets averaged 116.0 points in those two victories, with Danilo Gallinari posting a career-high 39 points and hitting 7 of 11 from 3-point range in Friday's 106-85 win at Dallas.

Denver is shooting 35.9 percent from long range in its wins compared to 30.5 percent in its losses.

"When we make shots, I think we're pretty good," coach George Karl said.

Memphis didn't make shots against Philadelphia on Wednesday, hitting 38.9 percent from the field. The Grizzlies have made 7 of 28 3-point attempts in their last two games, but coach Lionel Hollins is more concerned about something else.

"It's effort. It's effort on defense, and it's effort on offense," Hollins said. "We get the ball, we have to run up the court with some pace. We have to move the ball quickly. We've got too much ball sticking. We have too much walking."

The return of leading scorer Rudy Gay (18.2 ppg) after a one-game absence should help. Gay intended to play Wednesday after spending time in Baltimore with his ill grandmother, but couldn't make it to Memphis because of weather-related flight delays.

He has averaged 21.5 points in two games against the Nuggets this season, but Denver won both - including a 97-92 victory in Memphis on Nov. 19 to snap the Grizzlies' eight-game winning streak.

Andre Iguodala scored a team-high 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting in Denver's 99-94 home win over Memphis on Dec. 14.
