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.
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.

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

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Memphis (48-24) at Minnesota (26-45), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Memphis Grizzlies are within striking distance of another top-four finish in the Western Conference but could use some wins away from home if they want to make a serious push.

The Grizzlies will try to end a season-high five-game road losing streak Saturday night by continuing their dominance over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Memphis (48-24) is only a half-game behind the fourth-place Los Angeles Clippers in the West and one game back of third-place Denver, but the Grizzlies haven't helped themselves with their recent road woes.

Their five-game skid away from home is their longest since they dropped six straight Nov. 15-Dec. 6, 2010, but they might have a prime opportunity to end that losing streak Saturday. Memphis has won 10 in a row over Minnesota (26-45) and four straight at the Target Center.

With the playoffs right around the corner, the Grizzlies could use some road momentum as they'll play four of their next five games away from Memphis.

The Grizzlies are coming off Friday's 103-94 victory over Houston following back-to-back defeats. Zach Randolph had 21 points and 12 rebounds after scoring a season-low three points and grabbing four boards in Wednesday's loss at New York.

"Man, it's an 82-game season. Even MJ (Michael Jordan) had bad games. It's just part of it," said Randolph, who topped 20 points for the first time since Feb. 27.

Marc Gasol also scored 21 in his second game back from an abdominal tear and helped his team avoid a third straight loss.

"It's always good to be able to be back home and win, especially after we lost a couple of games on the road," Gasol said. "Offensively, I think we did a good job 70 percent of the game, 30 percent we didn't do so good, but we got the win."

The Grizzlies haven't need too much help from Randolph or Gasol when facing Minnesota this season, winning two matchups by a combined 32 points. Mike Conley had 20 points and paced five Grizzlies in double figures in a 92-77 victory over the Timberwolves on March 18.

Tayshaun Prince scored 18 while Conley, Randolph and Austin Daye added 16 apiece in a 105-88 home rout Feb. 10.

The Grizzlies, who finished fourth in the West in 2011-12, are making their first visit to the Target Center since a 91-84 victory April 17, and will face a team that's alternated wins and losses in its last six games.

The Timberwolves scored a surprising 101-93 home win over Northwest Division-leading Oklahoma City on Friday as Nikola Pekovic had 22 points and 15 rebounds. It was the best scoring performance for the center in eight games since returning from an abdominal strain.

"I'm just really proud of how the guys played," coach Rick Adelman said. "(Pekovic) had it really going inside and it's just a solid win against one of the best teams in the league.

"We keep talking about beating good teams, and there's no reason we can't do that. Maybe tonight is going to give us some confidence."

Ricky Rubio, who had 17 points and seven assists Friday, is averaging 13.8 points and 8.0 assists in six games since finishing with two points on 1-of-6 shooting and two assists against Memphis.
