NEW ORLEANS: GUARDS: This offense will belong to ERIC GORDON. He'll get over the fact that the Hornets matched his offer from Phoenix, and as long as his surgically-repaired knee holds up, he's one of the most complete young scorers in the NBA . . . The Hornets reached for AUSTIN RIVERS with the 10th pick because Monty Williams wants to coach him and thinks he can be an NBA point guard. Rivers has the handle, but his athleticism is ordinary and, more importantly, he has never shown a PG mentality at any level . . . GREIVIS VASQUEZ is the closest thing to a true point guard on this roster. He'll see solid minutes assuming Rivers' adjustment is a tough one . . . Well-rounded ROGER MASON JR. will also provide point guard depth . . . XAVIER HENRY hasn't lived up to his reputation as a shooter, but the Hornets can be patient with him . . . Rookie BRIAN ROBERTS has had a strong enough preseason to likely earn a roster spot. FORWARDS: ANTHONY DAVIS should step right in as a starter. His offensive game is further along than he gets credit for, and on the defensive end he's an absolute force from the basket out to the perimeter . . . He'll probably miss having Dwight Howard drawing in defenses, but RYAN ANDERSON has always been a very good three-point shooter. He and Davis are unique enough talents to share the court even if they're both power forwards . . . AL-FAROUQ AMINU made some strides on the defensive end late last season, which is what will get him minutes under Williams. He's underwhelming on the offensive end . . . If HAKIM WARRICK couldn't succeed as Steve Nash's pick-and-roll partner, it seems unlikely he'll ever help in New Orleans . . . Rookie DARIUS MILLER is looking to establish some kind of role with the team . . . LANCE THOMAS is doubtful to earn a salary to pay off his jewelry debts. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ has always had the ability to protect the rim and does a decent job in space. Look for him to end up grabbing the bulk of minutes in the middle . . . JASON SMITH gives the Hornets a more offensive-minded option off the bench.
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.

*Hornets-Grizzlies Preview* ===========================


New Orleans (14-29) at Memphis (28-14), 6:00 p.m. EDT

While their defense has led to the franchise's best start through 41 games, the Memphis Grizzlies have been getting it done at both ends lately.

That's bad news for the New Orleans Hornets, who have taken a step back in their last two games.

The Grizzlies will try to stay within striking distance of the Southwest Division lead and win for the fifth time in six games on Sunday night when they wrap up a four-game homestand against the Hornets.

After losing three straight by an average of 22.7 points, Memphis (27-14) has won four of five to surpass the team's previous best start of 25-16 during the 2005-06 season.

The Grizzlies, who are five games behind division-leading San Antonio and rank near the top of the NBA in defensive scoring (89.2 ppg), have allowed 79.4 points per game over that five-game stretch.

They should be able to maintain that pace against a New Orleans team that has failed to reach 100 points in each of its last eight against the Grizzlies.

"One thing that we have had all season is our defense," said Memphis guard Rudy Gay.

Despite being ranked near the bottom of the league in bench scoring at 26.0 points per game, the Grizzlies have outscored their last three opponents by a 110-85 margin in that area. Jerryd Bayless, Tony Wroten and Chris Johnson combined for 32 as Memphis' bench gained a 38-24 advantage over Brooklyn's reserves in a 24-point victory on Friday.

"For us to win, we need our bench." forward Zach Randolph said. "The way they've been playing has been great. They've been stepping up."

The bench effort has been key with both Randolph and Gay slumping recently.

Randolph, named to the Western Conference All-Star team on Thursday, has averaged 12.2 points on 38.0 percent shooting in his last five games while battling a strained back.

Gay appears to be healthy, but has scored just 13.3 points per game while shooting 32.3 percent from the floor over his last four.

Gay, however, may be able to get back on track against the Hornets. He's averaged 26.0 on 57.1 percent shooting in his last three in the series, including a game-high 28 to lead Memphis to a 96-89 win at New Orleans on Dec. 7.

Even with their stars struggling, the Grizzlies have reached 100 points in back-to-back games after reaching the century mark only twice in the previous 24.

They also improved to 13-0 when scoring over 100 - a trend they hope to continue against the Hornets, who have allowed four consecutive opponents to reach that mark.

"We haven't been able to guard and hold teams under 100 points," New Orleans coach Monty Williams said. "That's where it starts for me. We have to defend better."

The Hornets (14-29), last in the Southwest, had won seven of nine before losing their last two.

Eric Gordon has averaged 17.6 points in 12 games back from a knee injury that cost him the first 29 games. New Orleans is 13-8 the past two seasons when he plays.

Ryan Anderson has been the other top weapon, averaging 20.3 points in his last four games.

The Hornets, however, shot 38.8 percent from the field and 3 for 20 (15.0 percent) from 3-point range in a 100-82 loss to Houston on Friday. They had scored 109.3 points per game and hit 31 for 66 (47.0 percent) from beyond the arc in their previous three.

The Hornets have dropped six of seven to New Orleans, including three straight in Memphis.
