CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: RAMON SESSIONS will have to adjust to a major downgrade in teammates, but he has the kind of versatile offensive skill set to be the focal point of this offense . . . The athletic GERALD HENDERSON has made strides the past two seasons. Realistically, his offensive skills are those of a No. 4 or 5 option . . . Coach Mike Dunlap is high on KEMBA WALKER, who was sometimes overwhelmed as a rookie. With a few new sets built in for him, he could thrive as a sixth man getting starter's minutes . . . BEN GORDON won't overtake Henderson, but should see big minutes as the Cats' only shooter . . . REGGIE WILLIAMS is a D-League talent . . . MATT CARROLL, in the final year of his $27 million deal, symbolizes everything that's gone wrong under Michael Jordan. FORWARDS: Drafting MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST was as much about changing the losing culture as it was adding a piece they needed. MKG's statistical output is a question mark, but he'll see big minutes as a defensive stopper and intangibles guy . . . This team is seriously lacking in the post, where they may have no choice but to play TYRUS THOMAS for significant minutes. The talented but uber-underachieving big man claims to have added 20 pounds of muscle in the offseason. If nothing else, they might showcase him in a desperate attempt to get some trade value . . . Rookie JEFFERY TAYLOR figures to make the team and has the versatility and athleticism to be a respectable second-unit guy. CENTERS: Charlotte sees BISMACK BIYOMBO as a franchise cornerstone. He can certainly rebound and block shots, but his offense is atrocious . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD brings a veteran presence. At his age he can't go more than 15 or so minutes per night . . . BYRON MULLENS never saw a shot he didn't like. He'll get one more chance to prove he's an NBA rotation player, able to play the four or five . . . DeSAGANA DIOP is doing those things that DeSagana Diop does.
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.

*Bobcats-Grizzlies Preview* ===========================


Charlotte (18-59) at Memphis (52-25), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Having returned to their top-ranked defensive form, the Memphis Grizzlies are making a run at home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

The low-scoring Charlotte Bobcats, mired in a lengthy road losing streak, seem unlikely to stand in their way.

The Grizzlies look to win for the sixth time in seven games and move closer to the third seed in the Western Conference when they host the NBA-worst Bobcats on Tuesday night.

After having its four-game winning streak snapped, Memphis got back on track Sunday when Mike Conley scored 25 points and had the go-ahead basket with 30 seconds left in an 89-87 victory at Sacramento.

Quincy Pondexter tied his career high with 17 points for the Grizzlies (52-25), who have set a franchise record for victories while clinching their third straight playoff berth.

They improved to 19-7 following the All-Star break.

"We're gearing up for the playoffs," Pondexter said. "We're happy with this win. This is the NBA. Getting any win is tough in this league. We executed down the stretch and grinded this one out."

Memphis, in fifth place in the West, will be trying to move within a half-game of third-seeded Denver. The Los Angeles Clippers, the Pacific Division champions, are in fourth.

The Grizzlies would certainly like to finish in the top four and have home-court advantage for at least the first round. They have won 12 straight in Memphis and are 30-8 there.

A renewed focus on the defensive end has keyed the recent run. The Grizzlies, tops in the NBA in scoring defense at 89.7 points per game, surrendered 107.0 along with 50.9 shooting during a three-game stretch March 23-27.

Since then, they've limited opponents to 86.5 and 42.6 in six contests.

Memphis held the Kings to 35.8 percent from the field Sunday, and Marc Gasol came through with a pair of blocked shots in the final seven seconds to preserve the victory.

The Grizzlies should have a good chance to extend that defensive dominance against a Charlotte team that's averaged 88.5 points and 41.7 percent shooting during a 12-game road losing streak.

The Bobcats dropped their second in a row Saturday, 105-96 to Brooklyn. Ben Gordon scored 27 points and Gerald Henderson had 22.

While it hasn't translated into road victories, Charlotte (18-59) has played better in its last 14 games, going 5-9.

"We're carrying a huge amount of losses and this last month we've been unbelievable," coach Mike Dunlap said. "It's staying at the game."

Henderson has given the team a lift with 23.1 points and 50.5 percent shooting in his last seven contests.

In contrast, guard Kemba Walker has gone 6 for 24 in his past two games. He's made 11 for 32 from the field in two career matchups with the Grizzlies.

Charlotte, last in the NBA with a 42.2 field-goal percentage, was held to 37.6 in a 94-87 loss to Memphis on Nov. 17.

Conley led the Grizzlies with 20 points in that contest, and he's averaged 21.5 points in his last eight games.

Zach Randolph had 18 points and 12 rebounds in the November win, but he's averaged 12.5 points and 42.9 percent shooting in his past eight contests.

The Grizzlies have won three of the last four overall meetings and five of seven at home.
