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.
TORONTO: GUARDS: KYLE LOWRY is healthy again and will be handed the reigns. He could be the Raptors best player on both ends of the floor . . . As of now, JOSE CALDERON is still on the roster, but he's not long for Toronto with Lowry's arrival. He won't start over Lowry, but he could see decent minutes as the Raptors attempt to showcase him . . . With Toronto's influx of new talent, DeMAR DeROZAN could be marginalized on the offensive end. He hasn't really progressed past the dunker/raw athlete stage of his career . . . Rookie TERRENCE ROSS can just about match DeRozan's athleticism, and while he has no handle, he's a potentially deadly three-point threat . . . JOHN LUCAS III will back up both guard spots . . . ALAN ANDERSON returns as a defensive stopper in the second unit. FORWARDS: ANDREA BARGNANI makes his triumphant return and will likely go back to the perimeter. The Raptors have beefed up in the middle so Bargnani can play outside more . . . LANDRY FIELDS plays enough defense to earn minutes, but it seems like his signing was more a result of Toronto playing cap games to try to land Steve Nash. He'll likely platoon with Terrence Ross . . . ED DAVIS made some strides this offseason, but he's still not where the Raptors want him to be on the offensive end . . . LINAS KLEIZA's knee should be in better shape this season. The Raptors want more shooting, and he has a chance to grab a bigger role . . . Toronto will do everything it can to get out from under AMIR JOHNSON's contract . . . DOMINIC McGUIRE figures to occupy the final seat on the Raptors bench. CENTERS: JONAS VALANCIUNAS would have been the No. 2 pick of the draft had he come out a year later. He's a wiry, strong athlete who's physical down low with soft touch out to 10 feet. Toronto sees him as a franchise cornerstone who meshes nicely with Bargnani . . . AARON GRAY should provide ample competition for the starting center job.

*Grizzlies-Raptors Preview* ===========================


Memphis (33-18) at Toronto (21-32), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Rudy Gay was a big part of the Memphis Grizzlies' limited success over the past six-plus seasons, so it may not be much of a surprise that he's been key to the Toronto Raptors' recent improvement.

Gay will try to lead the Raptors to their longest winning streak in nearly four years Wednesday night when he faces the surging Grizzlies for the first time since being traded away three weeks ago.

Gay was drafted eighth overall by Memphis (34-18) in 2006, and the forward was seen as a possible cornerstone for the franchise. He did his part, averaging at least 18.9 points over the past five seasons while helping the Grizzlies reach the playoffs in each of the last two.

That was a big reason why it was a surprise when they shipped Gay off to Toronto - last in the Atlantic Division - in a six-player, three-team trade that returned Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye from Detroit and fellow forward Ed Davis from the Raptors.

David and Daye are reserves, while Prince is averaging 9.4 points in seven games since the move.

Gay, meanwhile, has 21.1 points per game in eight games with the Raptors (22-32), winning five straight to match its season high set in December and six overall.

"We can hang out and stuff after the game and stuff like that, but we're all about business on the court," Gay said. "We're working on a streak right now. We're trying to win games. We don't have time for all the emotional stuff."

Gay and the Raptors returned to business Tuesday, emerging from the All-Star break to win 96-88 at Washington behind the star forward's 24 points, eight rebounds and three steals.

The Raptors are now seeking their first six-game winning streak since March 22-April 4, 2009. Having Gay on their side should be a big help since they've dropped seven of the last eight meetings with the Grizzlies, including three in a row at home.

Toronto fell 103-82 at Memphis on Nov. 28, and the Grizzlies - 5-3 since the trade - enter this meeting on a four-game winning streak.

They shook off some rust following the break to beat Detroit 105-91 on Tuesday. Memphis gave up 30 points in the opening quarter before allowing that many over the next two to take control of the game.

"We were a little rusty," swingman Tony Allen said after Memphis' first game in six days due to the break. "Once we got our composure we were able to do what we do best. We played great defense and pounded the ball inside."

It's been the Grizzlies' success offensively that has driven their winning streak, averaging 104.3 points on 52.2 percent from the floor - 41.8 from beyond the arc.

Mike Conley has been a big contributor, averaging 19.0 points on 55.6 percent from the field while going 6 for 11 from long range over the past three games. He hit that average against the Pistons while connecting on 8 of 11 field-goal attempts and sinking both 3s.

Prince will be seeking improvement after going 2 for 7 from the field to finish with four points in his first game in Detroit since the trade.

"I wish I would've played a little better," he said. "You always want to play well against your old team."

He hasn't played well in Toronto, averaging 9.4 points over the past five visits.
