SAN ANTONIO: GUARDS: TONY PARKER played at an MVP level last year. His eye injury is obviously not an issue, and he was constantly getting on coach Gregg Popovich to let him finish meaningless games last year. There's no reason he can't repeat last year's performance . . . MANU GINOBILI dealt with a series of nagging injuries last year, and it's clear the team will have to monitor his regular-season workload . . . GARY NEAL provides solid minutes in this rotation, mostly at the point, and is able to consistently knock down threes . . . DANNY GREEN's rotation spot is in a bit of peril. He was too much of an offensive liability in last year's Western Conference Finals . . . NANDO de COLO is a combo guard who can provide instant offense off the bench. He can shoot it and does a nice job getting to the line . . . PATTY MILLS steps in as another viable option in this loaded backcourt . . . CORY JOSEPH's roster spot is in jeopardy after a middling D-League season. FORWARDS: TIM DUNCAN will continue to save it up for the playoffs. He still has plenty left in the tank, but he'll get tons of rest in March and April and more and more often defers to Tony Parker on offense when he does play . . . There's plenty to like about KAWHI LEONARD, who proved to be useful on both ends of the court last season. He'll be asked to be a little more aggressive offensively this year and should even have a couple of sets designed for him . . . STEPHEN JACKSON was a bit of a disaster in Milwaukee before landing with the Spurs last year. He's another veteran who will be paced during the regular season. And while he's been a facilitator in the past, he's really just a catch-and-shoot guy in San Antonio . . . MATT BONNER will continue to come off the bench and hoist some threes. CENTERS: BORIS DIAW's pick-and-pop ability makes him Popovich's top choice in the center rotation . . . TIAGO SPLITTER looks to be a career second-unit guy. He works hard and can defend, but he's just too clunky on the offensive end . . . DeJUAN BLAIR can pick up some cheap baskets, but his lack of offensive skills and defensive size makes him a fringe rotation player.
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.

*Spurs-Grizzlies Preview* =========================


San Antonio (55-18) at Memphis (49-24), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Memphis Grizzlies are looking to set a record for the longest home win streak in franchise history.

All they have to do is beat the Western Conference's best team - and one that's certainly had their number of late.

The Grizzlies go for a 12th straight win at FedEx Forum on Monday night against a Spurs team looking to avoid its first back-to-back losses since mid-December.

Memphis (49-24) has the NBA's fifth-best home record at 29-8, limiting opponents to a league-low average of 87.5 points.

The Grizzlies haven't lost at home in nearly two months, winning their last 11 home games as they fight for home-court advantage in the first round of the West playoffs. Memphis is a half-game behind Denver for the conference's No. 3 seed.

"We're trying to get to that third spot, that fourth spot," guard Mike Conley said. "We're right there if we can keep winning."

The Grizzlies kept their home dominance going with Friday's 103-94 win over Houston, following it up a day later with a 99-86 victory at Minnesota. They held the high-scoring Rockets to 42.0 percent overall and limited the Timberwolves to 33.3 percent after halftime while outscoring them 54-36.

"I thought our defense kept us in the game," coach Lionel Hollins told the team's official website after the win in Minnesota. "We held them to 36 points in the second half and really clamped down and took control of the game."

That may also be necessary against the Spurs (55-18), who lead the conference by 1 1/2 games on Oklahoma City and are fourth in the NBA at 104.0 points per game.

Memphis has dropped six of seven meetings. The lone victory in that stretch came at home Jan. 11, when the Grizzlies won 101-98 after Tony Parker's 3-pointer at the buzzer forced overtime. Parker, who had 30 points in that loss and 30 in a win over Memphis in December, had 17 and 11 assists in a 103-82 home victory on Jan. 16.

The Spurs shot 57.9 percent in that win, the most efficient performance against Memphis this season.

While San Antonio ran away in that game, each of its first two visits with the Grizzlies was decided in overtime - and tight finishes are something the Spurs are getting used to.

Tim Duncan's three-point play with 2.2 seconds left clinched Friday's 104-102 win over the Los Angeles Clippers. They were on the other side of it Sunday, giving up a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds to play in an 88-86 defeat to a Miami team that rested LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

"It's good experience for us. It's good situations to put our team in," Duncan said of the late-game dramatics. "Hopefully, we can use that experience down the stretch somewhere and in the playoffs somewhere. We're going to stockpile that and hopefully be able to use it some other time."

The Spurs last dropped back-to-back games Dec. 17-18. One of those losses came without Manu Ginobili, who is expected to miss a second straight with a strained right hamstring.

Parker will try to do a better job picking up the slack after scoring 12 points with eight assists while making just 4 of 14 from the floor Sunday.

"Without Manu, Tony is the guy that's got to generate things for us," coach Gregg Popovich said.

Parker isn't the only Spur who's had his way with Memphis this season as Duncan has averaged 19.7 points, 12.7 boards and 3.0 blocks in the series. He's hardly played like a 16-year-veteran recently, averaging 24.1 points, 13.0 boards and 2.9 blocks over eight games since returning from a sore left knee.

The Grizzlies certainly need to fare better in the paint than they did in the 21-point loss to the Spurs, when they scored a season-low 26 inside. Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph were held to 23 points in that game, seven below their combined average.
