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.
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.

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

By MATT BEARDMORE STATS Writer

Memphis (53-25) at Houston (44-34), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Memphis Grizzlies' starters got a nice break heading into their upcoming back-to-back set of games.

That's probably an even bigger benefit with a visit to Houston on tap.

Memphis continues its push for home-court advantage in the first round of the postseason Friday night when the playoff-bound Rockets go for a 14th straight home win in this series.

With Mike Conley the lone starter in the game, Jon Leuer, Quincy Pondexter, Austin Daye and Ed Davis keyed a 19-6 fourth-quarter surge in a 94-75 win over Charlotte on Tuesday. Leuer finished with a season-best 11 points, Daye added 10 with seven rebounds and Pondexter and Davis each scored eight as Memphis (53-25) moved a franchise-best 28 games above .500.

"It just shows the depth of our team - on any given night, someone can come out and be heroic," guard Tony Allen said. "... that was a big lift for our starters, you know, for our bodies, just sitting in that fourth quarter, knowing we have a back-to-back coming up."

The Grizzlies, one game behind third-seeded Denver (54-24) for home court in the first round, host the Pacific Division champion Los Angeles Clippers, the No. 4 seed, on Saturday.

Memphis, the league leader in scoring defense at 89.5 points per game, has given up 84.9 during a 6-1 run that started with a 103-94 home win over the Rockets (44-34) on March 29.

The Grizzlies, though, were perhaps at their worst at the defensive end in a 121-96 loss at Houston on Dec. 22, as they allowed their highest point total in two seasons.

That game tied for Memphis' most lopsided defeat in its 13-game losing streak at Houston that started Nov. 25, 2006.

The Rockets, among the NBA leaders with 106.2 points per game, have won 14 of 17 at home and five of six overall. They'll try to split this series after clinching their first playoff berth since 2008-09 on Tuesday.

After defeating Phoenix 101-98 on a game-ending goaltending call on James Harden's 3-point attempt, Houston earned a postseason berth later that night when Utah fell to Oklahoma City.

"It's a great accomplishment for us," Harden said. "For our first year together, it's a pretty good thing."

The Rockets, though, can't slow down if they want to catch sixth-place Golden State - 3-1 against Houston - and avoid a possible first-round matchup with the Thunder or San Antonio. If Houston does earn the sixth spot, it could open against Memphis.

The Rockets could be without Chandler Parsons, their second-leading scorer, for a fourth consecutive game Friday, while Carlos Delfino is questionable due to flu-like symptoms after a four-game absence.

It's uncertain if Darrell Arthur or Jerryd Bayless will return for Memphis after both missed the last two games.

The Grizzlies can win the season series against Houston for the first time since sweeping it in 2005-06.
