KEY GAME INFORMATION
HOUSTON: GUARDS: Houston has gutted its roster, and this is JEREMY LIN's team now. Coach Kevin McHale will use the same pick-and-roll offense he used with Goran Dragic, and Lin should do what he did in New York a year ago . . . KEVIN MARTIN is on the trade block. As long as he's in Houston, he'll be in and out of McHale's doghouse, especially seeing that he's not in the long-term plans . . . JEREMY LAMB should push Martin for minutes early. Lamb will have some defensive issues, but he's a cagey scorer who should mesh well with Lin . . . CARLOS DELFINO replaces Chase Budinger as the team's most reliable marksman from three-point range . . . TONEY DOUGLAS' defensive ability puts him in the running for a rotation spot . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON can give them 12 to 15 minutes a night . . . Rookie SCOTT MACHADO, an outstanding passer, will back up Lin . . . GARY FORBES will have trouble finding minutes. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS was a nice surprise a year ago. He's a fifth option offensively but does the hustle/energy thing well . . . 2011 first-rounder DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS is a skilled 7-footer who fits with Lin. Expect him to grab a starting job by midseason, but he can also play center when required . . . This might be the year PATRICK PATTERSON makes an impact. His game is limited, but he can rebound and score around the basket . . . ROYCE WHITE is a 270-pounder with point guard skills. He needs the ball in his hands though, which is why he's not a great fit with Lin in the starting lineup . . . TERRENCE JONES has a tweener skill set. At this point, he's better suited for the second unit . . . Speaking of 'tweeners, MARCUS MORRIS looks to be nowhere near contributing. CENTERS: OMER ASIK earned his reputation as a defensive stud in Chicago, and he'll get a little more offensive freedom in Houston. He is quite foul-prone though, and he'll be tested on the free-throw line early and often . . . His backup, GREG SMITH, has more fouls (17) than points (14) in his 69-minute NBA career.
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.

*Rockets-Grizzlies Preview* ===========================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

Houston (39-32) at Memphis (47-24), 8:00 p.m. EDT

While the Memphis Grizzlies' success mainly has been the result of stellar defense, the Houston Rockets' explosive offense is a major reason they're in position to make their first playoff appearance in four seasons.

The Grizzlies, though, haven't been playing up to their standards on the defensive end lately, and they'll look to get back on track by winning a fifth straight home meeting with the Rockets on Friday night.

Memphis (47-24) sits in fifth place in the Western Conference, one game behind Denver for home-court advantage in the first round of the postseason.

The Grizzlies have been struggling, dropping to 3-5 in their last eight after falling behind by as many as 30 points in a 108-101 loss at New York on Wednesday.

While Memphis ranks near the top of the league giving up an average of 90.0 points, it has allowed 107.0 per game over the last three.

"Obviously, it was a bad start, getting all the way down by 30 points," coach Lionel Hollins said. "We had to find a lineup that could both guard and score, but we just didn't have any margin for error."

There were a couple of bright spots, though, as Mike Conley scored 26 points and is averaging 21.0 over his last five. Jerryd Bayless continued his hot stretch off the bench by scoring 24 points, and he's averaging 19.9 over his last seven - more than double his season average of 8.4.

Marc Gasol also returned from a two-game absence due to an abdominal tear and said he plans to play through the injury as long as he can.

"If I can play, I will play," said Gasol, who scored 13 points. "That's the way it's always been with me and hopefully that's how it's always going to be."

None of the Grizzlies could prevent them from allowing a season-worst point total in a 121-96 loss to Houston in the most recent meeting Dec. 22. James Harden finished with 31 points while Jeremy Lin added 15 and 11 assists for the Rockets (39-32).

That type of offensive display has been common for the Rockets, who average 106.1 points - one-tenth behind league leader Oklahoma City.

Houston is seventh in the West, one game behind sixth-place Golden State and in position to qualify for its first postseason since 2008-09. It had a three-game winning streak snapped with Wednesday's 100-91 loss to Indiana that concluded a 5-2 homestand.

"One loss is one loss but if we learn from it, it can be a good thing for us," Lin said. "The key is not to compound one loss with another one."

The Rockets shot 38.6 percent overall and were behind by 16 points at the end of the first quarter. They've been held to fewer than 100 points in two consecutive games for the first time since Jan. 18-19.

"I think the starters should take some ownership and not allow teams to get out to leads like that because it is pretty much impossible to play back from that much down when you play a (good) team," said Chandler Parsons, who shot 5 of 14 and scored 11 points.

Houston has won 11 of 15 meetings with the Grizzlies, but the defeats have come in its last four visits to Memphis.

The Grizzlies held Harden to 4-of-18 shooting in a 93-85 victory Nov. 9.
