KEY GAME INFORMATION
MINNESOTA: GUARDS: RICKY RUBIO could be back by late December, but even he's not confident his knee will be 100 percent. His minutes might have to be scaled back . . . LUKE RIDNOUR will handle the offense with Rubio hampered. The vet is a steady hand in coach Rick Adelman's Euro-style offense . . . They're counting on BRANDON ROY to reclaim his old form after a radical knee procedure. He may never be 100 percent, but he should at least give them sixth-man minutes . . . CHASE BUDINGER is a three-point marksman who moves well off the ball, a perfect fit in Adelman's system . . . J.J. BAREA will take some of the point guard burden as well. He's a top sixth man . . . ALEXEY SHVED can help as a combo guard, though he might have trouble breaking into this rotation . . . MALCOLM LEE is a defensive stopper who won't be asked to shoot very often. FORWARDS: Despite being limited athletically, KEVIN LOVE is an elite rebounder and shooter for a big. He'll continue to be the focal point of this offense once he returns from a broken hand in early December . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO returns to the States after a dominating Euroleague stint. He's a big upgrade at the three and should be comfortable in Adelman's system . . . DERRICK WILLIAMS will continue his attempted transition to the three. As last year proved, he's a long, long ways away. He might have to play himself into a rotation spot . . . DANTE CUNNINGHAM is a nice, efficient big to bring off the bench . . . Since they need shooting on the wings, rookie ROBBIE HUMMEL has a chance to crack the rotation. CENTERS: NIKOLA PEKOVIC is a beast, the best offensive rebounder in the NBA. His total rebounding numbers get hurt playing alongside Kevin Love, but Pekovic will continue to bully his way to put-backs . . . GREG STIEMSMA is going to come in and do some pushing and shoving (and occasional shot-blocking) for 12-to-15 MPG.
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.

*Timberwolves-Grizzlies Preview* ================================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

Minnesota (22-41) at Memphis (44-21), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Memphis Grizzlies didn't end their road trip the way they would've liked, but returning home for a matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves might be what they need to get back on track.

Memphis looks to win its eighth consecutive home game by earning a 10th straight victory over Minnesota on Monday night.

The Grizzlies (44-21) had won 14 of 15 and the first two of a four-game road trip before back-to-back to defeats to Denver on Friday and Utah on Saturday.

Jerryd Bayless scored 24 points off the bench while Zach Randolph added 19 and nine rebounds Saturday for Memphis, which shot just 38.9 percent over the two defeats.

"It's tough, but we have another game on Monday where we will be able to bounce back," said Bayless, who totaled 22 points and shot 28.6 percent over his previous three games. "We wish we could have won, but at the same time it wasn't a bad road trip."

The Grizzlies, who rank among the league leaders forcing 15.6 turnovers per game, forced a season-low six giveaways Saturday.

"That was a tough loss," coach Lionel Hollins said. "They played with a lot of energy and we just didn't play smart down the stretch."

Memphis, though, returns to the FedEx Forum where it has won seven straight and has held 32 of its 33 opponents to fewer than 100 points. It leads the NBA allowing only 89.4 points per game, and opponents during its home winning streak are shooting just 44.6 percent.

The Grizzlies have held the Timberwolves to an average of 86.8 points during their nine-game winning streak in the series, giving up more than 90 only once.

Minnesota is shooting a dismal 40.5 percent during that skid, but it hit 56.3 percent from the field - its second-best mark of the season - in Sunday's 97-95 home win over New Orleans.

Derrick Williams scored a career-high 28 points and Nikola Pekovic added 13 after missing the previous eight games with an abdominal strain. His two free throws with 15 seconds left put the Timberwolves (23-41) ahead to stay.

Williams is averaging 18.7 points over his last 12 games and is hitting 51.0 percent from the field in his past four. He was averaging 10.0 points and shooting 41.0 percent prior to his current run.

"I really feel like I'm getting a lot of my confidence back," Williams said. "Not just shooting, just overall. A lot of people have a lot of faith in me as well."

Andrei Kirilenko returned from a nine-game absence and blocked a potential game-tying shot with less than five seconds remaining. His and Pekovic's return helped a Minnesota team already missing Kevin Love due to a broken hand.

"We had energy at the end and that helped when we have more bodies," said Ricky Rubio, who finished with 16 points and six assists. "We can be more aggressive and we don't run out of energy in the last quarter."

The Timberwolves haven't won two straight since a season-best four-game winning streak from Dec. 7-15, and they'll likely have a tough time accomplishing the feat Monday.

Minnesota hasn't beaten the Grizzlies since Feb. 6, 2010, and its last victory in Memphis was Jan. 6, 2009.

Williams is averaging 8.8 points and shooting 34.8 percent in five career games against the Wolves.
