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 (21-41) at Memphis (40-19), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Even without their leading scorer and rebounder, the Memphis Grizzlies haven't missed a beat during their recent tear.

The Grizzlies look to exact some revenge for an earlier loss to the New Orleans Hornets and win for the 12th time in 13 games overall on Saturday night.

Since a defeat at Eastern Conference-leading Miami on Feb. 1, Memphis (41-19) has rebounded with three straight victories - including its first win in Cleveland in almost a decade on Friday. Marc Gasol had 22 points and Mike Conley and Jerryd Bayless each added 17 in a 103-92 victory that snapped a seven-game road skid against the Cavaliers.

The Grizzlies will likely have to extend their hot streak without Zach Randolph, who leads the team with 15.7 points and 11.6 rebounds per game. Randolph has missed the last three contests and is questionable for Saturday with an ankle injury he sustained against the Heat.

"We've got a lot of options, even without Zach," Gasol said. "Everyone is playing well."

Memphis certainly hasn't suffered on the boards with a plus-7.7 rebounding differential in its last three games. With Randolph in the lineup, Memphis held a 93-72 advantage on the glass in its two meetings with the Hornets.

Gasol had 13 points and a team-high nine boards as the Grizzlies won 96-89 at New Orleans on Dec. 7 before the Hornets returned the favor with a 91-83 win at Memphis on Jan. 27. Ryan Anderson led the Hornets with 22 points on 7 of 13 from 3-point range in that victory.

Anderson was one of three Hornets with 15 points in the first meeting. New Orleans (21-41) was without Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon in that contest.

Gordon had 18 points on 7-of-23 shooting as Southwest-worst New Orleans blew a 25-point lead and lost for the seventh time in nine games, 108-102 to the visiting Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.

"We just couldn't execute, and once it started to roll that way it's hard to stop that momentum," coach Monty Williams said.

Greivis Vasquez, who had 15 points and 12 assists against the Lakers, is averaging 19.0 and 9.7, respectively, in his last three games. Vasquez, however, has totaled nine points on 4-of-22 shooting against the Grizzlies this season.

The Hornets have reached 100 points in six of their last eight overall, but will have a difficult time hitting that mark against a very good Memphis defense that has been even stingier lately. The Grizzlies, who rank near the top of the NBA in points allowed at 89.4, have given up just 84.6 during that eight-game stretch.

Gasol looks to continue his scoring surge, averaging 20.4 points on 60.6 percent shooting in his last five games. The 7-foot-1 center also had 14 and 11, respectively, in the January loss to the Hornets.

Conley has added a spark in the backcourt with 37 points and 17 assists in his last two.

Even without Randolph, the Grizzlies have scored 100.7 per game - 7.1 above their season average - while shooting 49.6 from the floor in their last three. They'll try to keep it going against a New Orleans team that has allowed 106.8 points on 50.8 percent shooting in its past four games.

Memphis won six of the previous seven meetings before its home loss to the Hornets in January.
