KEY GAME INFORMATION
MEMPHIS: GUARDS: MIKE CONLEY has steadily improved every season. He's now a borderline All-Star point guard . . . TONY ALLEN is back as the defensive half of Memphis' SG platoon. He's a favorite of new head coach David Joerger, the mastermind of the Grizzlies' suffocating defense as an assistant . . . JERRYD BAYLESS is on the cusp of being one of the NBA's top sixth men. He's the only pure scorer they have on the perimeter . . . MIKE MILLER's minutes will be limited in the regular season, but he's still an effective bench option with his long-range shooting . . . Ultra-athletic rookie JAMAAL FRANKLIN seems like a future rotation guy if/when he grasps Joerger's defensive schemes. FORWARDS: ZACH RANDOLPH has taken a back seat to Marc Gasol, but Z-Bo is still a dangerous low-post scorer. He might give way to Ed Davis a little more often when Memphis needs defense . . . TAYSHAUN PRINCE brought another quality defender to Memphis at last season's trade deadline. He's no better than a fifth option on offense, though . . . QUINCY PONDEXTER is one of the only shooters Memphis has, and he seems ready for a bigger role after a strong postseason performance. If nothing else, he's the heir apparent to Prince . . . ED DAVIS seems ready for a bigger role, but it's not coming behind Randolph and Gasol. He's a back-up for at least one more season . . . JON LEUER gives the Grizzlies another savvy reserve big. CENTERS: He's a bit overrated defensively (good, but not Defensive Player of the Year good), but MARC GASOL has emerged as the centerpiece of the Memphis offense. He's one of the league's best passing big men, to go along with some skill in the post . . . KOSTA KOUFOS gives them another 7-footer who can move the ball, though his role will be much smaller than it was in Denver.
DALLAS: GUARDS: MONTA ELLIS slides into the 2-guard spot vacated by O.J. Mayo. He should benefit from the attention Dirk Nowitzki gets and from playing alongside a pure point guard . . . JOSE CALDERON is a defensive liability, but he should have the Mavs' offense running more smoothly . . . VINCE CARTER has become one of the league's better sixth men. He'll see plenty of minutes for a team that figures to frequently play small ball . . . When healthy, DEVIN HARRIS should be the defensive side of a platoon with Calderon . . . Israeli star GAL MEKEL should be able to help at both guard spots on a part-time basis . . . WAYNE ELLINGTON has yet to prove he can do anything with second-unit minutes . . . After breaking his foot, SHANE LARKIN is looking at a redshirt year. FORWARDS: Last season was a bit of a lost season for DIRK NOWITZKI, who missed the beginning of the year after knee surgery and didn't get going until late. Health, as well as the arrival of a true point guard in Jose Calderon, should allow him to bounce back nicely . . . SHAWN MARION had a nice resurgence last season, and he should have at least one good season left as he plays for another contract . . . JAE CROWDER has a chance to establish himself as the heir apparent to Marion. He's a hustle guy right now, and whether he can be more will depend on whether he develops his jump shot . . . RICKY LEDO was a favorite NBA draft sleeper for many experts. But while the skilled wing has NBA talent, he also has a reputation for being a bad seed. Ledo is almost certainly headed to the D-League for now. CENTERS: SAMUEL DALEMBERT is a sad consolation prize in the Dwight Howard derby. He'll likely step in as a starter . . . BRANDAN WRIGHT has never been able to overcome injuries. He could end up splitting time with Dalembert . . . DEJUAN BLAIR will provide energy and offense at the four and five . . . BERNARD JAMES should continue to develop as a rim protector.

*Grizzlies-Mavericks Preview* =============================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

Memphis (0-1) at Dallas (1-0), 8:30 p.m. EDT

The Memphis Grizzlies began last season with a loss before reeling off a lengthy winning streak on their way to the best season in franchise history.

After bouncing back from a season-opening defeat, they'll look to follow a similar path as they seek a fifth victory in the last six meetings with the host Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night.

Memphis (1-1) trailed by 21 at halftime and couldn't quite recover in a 101-94 loss to San Antonio on Wednesday, but it scored 11 of the first 13 points of overtime Friday and beat Detroit 111-108.

Mike Conley scored 22 points and Marc Gasol added 15, including a tying tip-in with 8.2 seconds left in regulation, as the Grizzlies improved to 41-4 when scoring at least 100 points since the start of the 2011-12 season.

"I thought our big guys came in and made plays," Conley said. "Marc made plays down the stretch. Tayshaun (Prince) came in and hit a couple of big buckets, and that's what we expect from guys who know and have been in these situations we have been in."

Conley committed five of the team's 20 turnovers, though, and he knows Memphis needs to improve moving forward.

"They were throwing a lot of different things at us, but a lot of it was just mental errors," he said. "We were making errant passes and not focused at certain times."

The Grizzlies also dropped their opener last season before beginning an eight-game winning streak. They went on to win a franchise-best 56 games and made their first Western Conference finals appearance, falling to the Spurs in four games.

Lionel Hollins coached that squad, though his contract wasn't renewed at the end of the season. Dave Joerger picked up his first victory as head coach Friday.

"I think maturity allows you to understand the situation and embrace the situation," Conley said. "We've been there before."

Memphis won three of four matchups last season with Dallas, which is coming off a 113-105 loss to Houston on Friday.

The Mavericks (1-1) beat Atlanta in their opener, but they fell behind by 16 at the end of the first quarter against the Rockets and only led 1-0 on Shawn Marion's free throw less than one minute into the contest.

"We have to play better at the start of the game," coach Rick Carlisle said. "Our play in the first quarter put us in such a hole that we could never get back over the hump."

Dallas pulled within eight with eight minutes left, but Dirk Nowitzki, who scored 22 points, fouled out soon after.

"We didn't deserve to win," Nowitzki said. "We weren't good defensively and we shot 38 percent."

Monta Ellis followed up his 32-point effort in the opener by scoring 20, though he committed five of the team's 14 turnovers. Ellis is averaging 9.0 points while shooting 8 of 44 from the field in his last three against the Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies won the most recent meeting 103-97 on April 15 despite Nowitzki's 26 points. Conley had only six points in that contest and averaged 6.8 while shooting 25 percent against Dallas last season.
