NEW ORLEANS: GUARDS: JRUE HOLIDAY is perfect for head coach Monty Williams. He defends and can create in the half-court set . . . ERIC GORDON didn't want New Orleans to match his deal two offseasons ago, and he spent last year letting everyone know it. If healthy and motivated (two big 'ifs') he's a 20-point scorer . . . TYREKE EVANS will get some starts at the three and come off the bench at times. Either way, he is the kind of aggressive (if sometimes out-of- control) offensive threat this lineup needs . . . Even after an injury-filled season, ANTHONY MORROW's shooting could earn him a rotation spot . . . AUSTIN RIVERS was overmatched last season, to the point where he didn't seem to belong in the NBA. It's tough to see the win-now Pels relying on him often. FORWARDS: ANTHONY DAVIS was overwhelmed by Williams' complex defensive schemes, and opponents consistently took him out of plays with screen-and-rolls at him. Williams will surely use some of his new talent to allow Davis to roam more on defense . . . RYAN ANDERSON's defensive shortcomings could lead to a drop in playing time, but his shooting and the spacing it creates is too valuable to this offense . . . AL-FAROUQ AMINU will likely split time with Tyreke Evans at the three. He's more valuable defensively, and is starting to show some signs of improvement on offense . . . DARIUS MILLER has a shot to break into the rotation if his defense improves . . . LANCE THOMAS is a long athlete who is capable of playing some good defensive minutes . . . ARINZE ONUAKU most likely won't see the floor for more than a minute at a time. CENTERS: JASON SMITH might be their most complete defensive big man, and that should be enough to earn him solid minutes . . . GREG STIEMSMA is more off a warm body, but he at least gives them another rim-protecting option . . . JEFF WITHEY will spend most of the season on the bench learning Williams' complex schemes.
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.

*Pelicans-Grizzlies Preview* ============================


New Orleans (1-2) at Memphis (2-2), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Memphis Grizzlies went 10-6 within what was arguably the toughest division in basketball a season ago.

They'll try to avoid falling to 0-3 against their fellow Southwest Division foes Wednesday night when they host the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Southwest was the only division last season to have four teams at .500 or better, sending three to the postseason and producing both Western Conference finalists.

The Grizzlies (2-2) already have division losses to Dallas and San Antonio - both on the road - but bounced back from Saturday's 111-99 loss to the Mavericks on Monday with a 95-88 win over Boston.

Mike Conley, Zach Randolph and reserve Jerryd Bayless each scored 15 to lead the Grizzlies, who trailed by six heading into the fourth quarter. Bayless scored all of his points in the final period on 6-of-7 shooting after missing his first four shots of the game.

"I kept looking at my staff saying: 'When should I put Mike Conley in?'" Memphis coach Dave Joerger said. "And then Jerryd Bayless kept making buckets, and I would be silly if I took Jerryd Bayless out of the game."

Conley is averaging 18.8 points after turning in a career-high 14.6 last year. He's cracked 20 in each of his last two games against New Orleans.

The Pelicans (1-3) have hit 28 of 54 attempts from 3-point range (51.9 percent), but they're connecting on just 39.6 percent from inside the arc this year. They've been the best outside shooting team in the league despite being without top 3-point shooter Ryan Anderson, who has missed the start of the season with a chipped bone in his toe.

A 10-of-18 night from 3-point range wasn't enough in Tuesday's 104-98 home loss to Phoenix.

The Pelicans jumped out to a 28-17 lead after 12 minutes and led by 10 in the third quarter, but the Suns hit 12 of 13 shots and six 3-pointers in a row to pull ahead.

"We had a good first quarter, but after that we went away from the things that are necessary for us to be good," coach Monty Williams said. "The second half was just totally not the way we play in practice."

Eric Gordon scored a team-high 20 points while Jrue Holiday was held to three points on 1-of-7 shooting. He's 6 of 20 with 17 points in his last two games after averaging 20.5 in the first two.

New Orleans has been getting some solid interior play from Anthony Davis, but the second-year forward went 5 for 14 against the Suns and has now shot at or under 40 percent in three of four games.

He's averaging 22.0 points, 12.0 rebounds and 4.25 blocks per game and is 26 of 28 from the foul line.

These teams split four games in 2012-13, with New Orleans taking the last meeting 90-83 on March 22 behind Davis' 18 points and 15 rebounds.
