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.
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.

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


Memphis (46-21) at New Orleans (23-46), 8:00 p.m. EDT

While the Memphis Grizzlies couldn't get on track offensively, their outstanding defense proved up to the challenge against one of the NBA's highest-scoring teams.

The Grizzlies aren't likely to face as difficult of a task on Friday night when they visit the New Orleans Hornets, one of the lowest-scoring teams in the Western Conference.

Memphis (46-21), however, will have to remain focused following a dramatic 90-89 overtime victory over Oklahoma City on Wednesday. Marc Gasol tipped in Zach Randolph's miss with less than a second remaining to give the Grizzlies an emotional win over the defending conference champs.

Mike Conley finished with a team-high 24 points, while Jerryd Bayless added 20 and hit a key 3-pointer with 3.7 seconds left to send the game to overtime.

Gasol and Randolph combined for 29 points and 33 rebounds despite shooting 11 for 35.

With Memphis making just 36.0 percent as a team, its defense keyed the victory. The Grizzlies held an Oklahoma City team that ranks near the top of the NBA in scoring (106.4) to just 83 points in regulation, 2 of 18 shooting from 3-point range and a season-low 35.7 percent from the field.

"We win in a variety of ways. It's never pretty," said Conley. "That's that grit-and-grind motto right there. We just find a way to win however it is."

Memphis, which leads the NBA at 89.2 points allowed per game, won for the 16th time in 19 games and kept pace in a three-team fight with Denver and the Los Angeles Clippers for third place in the West.

Now the Grizzlies will try to snap a two-game road skid on Friday against the Hornets (23-46), who rank near the bottom of the West at 93.9 points per game

Southwest Division-worst New Orleans is also coming off a last-second victory as Anthony Davis overcame a stomach ailment and tapped in the go-ahead bucket in an 87-86 win over Boston on Wednesday.

"I was really tired, but I knew my team needed me, so I was trying to fight through it," said Davis, who had nine points and eight rebounds. "I'm glad I did. It was a big win for us."

Ryan Anderson had 21 points and Eric Gordon added 18 to help the Hornets rally from a 13-point second-half deficit and snap a four-game losing streak.

New Orleans, though, will have to find a way to knock down its open looks against the defensive-minded Grizzlies after averaging 85.3 points on 41.7 percent shooting in its last four games.

Memphis looks to take three of four in the season series after winning 96-89 in New Orleans on Dec. 7 and 96-85 at home on March 9. The Hornets limited the Grizzlies to 36.4 percent shooting in a 91-83 win in Memphis on Jan. 27.

Randolph totaled 35 points and 20 rebounds for Memphis in the first two games against New Orleans before missing the last contest because of a left ankle sprain.

Anderson has been a key weapon for the Hornets, averaging 18.0 points and hitting 11 for 25 from 3-point range over the three meetings.

Davis, meanwhile, had one of his best games against the Grizzlies earlier this month, totaling 20 points and 18 rebounds.

Memphis has won seven of nine in this series overall and three of four in New Orleans.
