KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
UTAH: GUARDS: MO WILLIAMS will get a crack at running the point in Utah. He's more of a combo guard, but he'll do fine in an offense that revolves around the bigs . . . RANDY FOYE is a gunning combo guard who will step in as Utah's sixth man . . . ALEC BURKS started to come on late last year, making Raja Bell expendable. He'll come off the bench, but if he can start knocking down perimeter shots, he's in for a much bigger role . . . Yeah, that's right, EARL WATSON and JAMAAL TINSLEY are both still around. And they're both riding pine in Salt Lake . . . KEVIN MURPHY is a cagey scorer from tiny Tennessee Tech (no word on his Golden Tee skills). FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was Utah's best all-around player last season and will be playing for a new contract. He should be able to keep his minutes despite Utah's young bigs behind him . . . GORDON HAYWARD will probably slide to the two. He has a chance for a breakout year after a strong finish to 2011-12 . . . MARVIN WILLIAMS gets a fresh start in Utah after a disappointing run in Atlanta. He figures to have a similar complementary role with the Jazz . . . DERRICK FAVORS is a long-term solution in the frontcourt. His offensive game is coming on, and he's already a far better defender than Al Jefferson . . . Slam dunk champion JEREMY EVANS and DeMARRE CARROLL will both provide energy off the bench. CENTERS: Like Millsap, AL JEFFERSON will hit free agency after the season. He's an incredibly limited player, a great scorer in the low post, but incapable of any other contributions and a huge liability on defense . . . ENES KANTER is still a few years away from a starting job. He has some rough edges to his game, but really had no problem adjusting to the physicality of the NBA.

*Grizzlies-Jazz Preview* ========================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Memphis (44-20) at Utah (33-32), 10:00 p.m. EDT

While the Memphis Grizzlies managed to slow down the hottest team in the Western Conference, it didn't translate into a victory in their last game.

They may be able to get back on track against a Utah Jazz team coming off one of its worst offensive performances of the season.

After having their six-game winning streak stopped, the Grizzlies will try to bounce back with their 15th win in 17 games on Saturday night when they visit the struggling Jazz.

Memphis (44-20) has been one of the NBA's best defensive teams all season and allowed just 85.8 points per game - 3.6 below its league-leading 89.4 mark - in 11 games heading into its contest at Denver on Friday.

The high-scoring Nuggets, meanwhile, entered the game averaging 111.5 points during their season-best 10 game winning streak before the Grizzlies held them 24.5 points below that average in an 87-80 road loss.

It was Denver's lowest point total since an 81-72 loss at Memphis on Dec. 29.

The Grizzlies are percentage points ahead of the Los Angeles Clippers and one-half game in front of the Nuggets for the third seed in the Western Conference.

"We understand where the standings are at," said guard Mike Conley. "But we still have 20 games left and anything can happen from there. We're just worried about tomorrow."

Now the Grizzlies turn their attention to the Jazz (33-32), who have lost eight of 10 to fall one game behind the Los Angeles Lakers for the final playoff spot in the West.

Gordon Hayward had a team-high 20 points, but leading scorers Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap combined for just 15 on 5-of-18 shooting in a 110-87 loss at Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Jefferson scored eight while shooting 4 for 13 from the field, but appears poised for a better effort Saturday. He's averaged 18.6 points and 10.0 rebounds in the last five against the Grizzlies.

Millsap scored seven in his first action since missing two games with inflammation in his right knee.

The Jazz hope to recover from their forgettable offensive dis Wednesday. They scored 28 in the first half, shot a season-low 35.0 percent and were outrebounded 48-35.

"We're trying to get in the playoffs we can't have games like this," Hayward told the team's official website. "We were down by 20-plus points and that's just stupid. We gotta execute our offense better."

It doesn't figure to get any easier against a Memphis defense that ranks near the top of the NBA in forced turnovers (15.8 per game) and rebounding differential (plus-4.0).

The Grizzlies have outscored the Jazz by a 55-28 margin in the third quarter on the way to a pair of wins in the season series. Memphis claimed a 103-94 home victory on Nov. 5 before winning 99-86 in their last trip to Utah on Dec. 15.

Zach Randolph carried much of the load, totaling 41 points and 34 rebounds to help the Grizzlies hold a 99-77 advantage on the glass.

Memphis has shot 47.3 percent from the floor while winning seven of nine on the road, with its only losses in that span to East-leading Miami and Denver.

The Jazz had won nine straight home games in this series before the Grizzlies' victory in December.
