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.
PORTLAND: GUARDS: Portland will turn point guard duties over to rookie DAMIAN LILLARD. The leap from Big Sky Conference to NBA will be a big one, but Lillard is an efficient scorer who can manage the offense . . . WESLEY MATTHEWS is more of a glue guy. He can't create his own offense, but he can heat up as a streaky catch-and-shoot guy . . . RONNIE PRICE should emerge as Lillard's top backup, a role he's filled at numerous stops . . . Second-rounder WILL BARTON could emerge as a rotation player. He's a versatile wing who must prove he can play off the ball . . . SASHA PAVLOVIC will play both the two and three, and can still stroke it from long distance . . . NOLAN SMITH, a misstep of the last regime, is a fringe roster player . . . ELLIOT WILLIAMS, a defensive-minded combo guard, tore his Achilles in mid-September and expects to miss the entire season. FORWARDS: LaMARCUS ALDRIDGE had a couple of health scares over the past six months, but he should enter the season 100 percent. He's clearly Portland's best player . . . NICOLAS BATUM felt rightly disrespected by his secondary role in Portland. All signs point to a bigger role in 2012-13 . . . VICTOR CLAVER is an athletic scrapper who won't do much offensively even if he does get big minutes . . . JOEL FREELAND could become their first big man off the bench . . . JARED JEFFRIES is still relevant as a defensive specialist . . . The highlight of LUKE BABBITT's career might be that mention on Onion:Sportsdome. CENTERS: J.J. HICKSON is a black hole on offense and a liability on defense, but he can score and rebound, which is good enough to be the starting center in Portland's weak frontcourt . . . MEYERS LEONARD might not be quite ready for 30-plus minutes, but he'll have to learn on the fly due to Portland's lack of veteran bigs. He has some long-term upside as a 7-footer with some nice athleticism and touch inside 10 feet.

*Grizzlies-Trail Blazers Preview* =================================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Memphis (50-24) at Portland (33-41), 10:00 p.m. EDT

Mike Conley's improvement has helped the Memphis Grizzlies to the brink of franchise history and a top-four seed in the Western Conference playoffs.

Conley and the Grizzlies try to continue their climb in the standings and go for a team-record 51st win in Wednesday night's road game against the struggling Portland Trail Blazers.

After having a strong March, Conley opened this month by hitting a last-second layup in a 92-90 victory over West-leading San Antonio on Monday. He finished with a team-best 23 points as the Grizzlies (50-24) improved to 10-3 this season when he scores 20 or more.

Memphis signaled it was ready to rely more on the sixth-year guard when it traded leading scorer Rudy Gay to Toronto on Jan. 30. Conley has lived up to those expectations by averaging 18.5 points over his last 16 games - 5.3 more than in his first 56 - and 7.0 assists.

"He's constantly getting better on the court and being a leader, putting players in the right position," forward Zach Randolph said. "So I'm happy for the young fellow. Sky's the limit for him."

With Conley's help, the Grizzlies have won three straight and 20 of 26. They now have the same record as third-place Denver in the West, but the Nuggets hold the tiebreaker by virtue of winning the season series. Memphis and Denver are the only non-division leaders that can claim one of the West's top-four seeds.

"We want to keep pushing," Randolph said. "We want to keep getting better ourselves, try to stay in third or the fourth spot and try to get home-court advantage. Try to get to that next level."

The only other time the Grizzlies reached 50 wins in 2003-04, they lost their four subsequent regular-season games and all four playoff contests against San Antonio.

Memphis can break the 50-win mark for the first time by posting a third straight victory over the Blazers (33-41). Conley had a career-high 15 assists and 14 points, including six in the final minute, in the most recent matchup, a 102-97 win March 12 that snapped the Grizzlies' three-game skid in Portland.

Conley had 20 points in a 91-85 home victory over the Blazers on March 6 and is averaging 20.2 over his last nine games. This time, he will face a Portland team that's dropped five in a row and is close to being eliminated from playoff contention.

The Blazers, who begin a five-game homestand Wednesday, are 11th in the West and 5 1/2 games back of eighth with eight contests remaining.

Leading scorer LaMarcus Aldridge's three-game absence due to a sprained right ankle has hardly helped, and it's unknown if he'll return against Memphis.

Portland trailed throughout a 112-102 loss in Utah on Monday despite Wesley Mathews' 23 points.

Damian Lillard set an NBA single-season rookie record for 3-pointers with 169.

"It's an honor to be able to (break the record)," said Lillard, 20 of 37 from 3-point range over the last seven games. "But I wish I would have done it in a win. It's bittersweet."

Lillard totaled 47 points in last month's two losses to Memphis.
