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.
HOUSTON: GUARDS: JAMES HARDEN is a franchise player, and as one of the league's elite pick-and-roll threats, he and Dwight Howard have the potential to be dominant . . . Trade rumors will continue to circle JEREMY LIN, who isn't an off-the-ball threat to fit alongside Harden. He is, however, clearly a starting-caliber point guard . . . PATRICK BEVERLEY really shined in back-up minutes last year, and he's part of the reason that Lin is expendable. He's strong defensively, and he proved capable of running the second unit. He'll be one of the league's top back-up PGs if Lin stays . . . Rookie combo guard ISAIAH CANAAN will be developed as a spot-up shooter . . . REGGIE WILLIAMS is a roster filler . . . AARON BROOKS is around as a reclamation project . . . RONNIE BREWER provides a much-needed athletic perimeter defender. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS is an elite role player. He entered the league with the reputation as a pure athlete, but it's his ability to knock down the corner three that's made him so valuable in Houston . . . GREG SMITH looks like another great find for the Rockets. He's an athletic banger who can allow Dwight Howard to roam a bit on defense . . . DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS showed flashes as a rookie, but the stretch four looks like a situational role player for the foreseeable future . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA will lend a veteran presence to the second unit . . . Versatile TERRENCE JONES could be in for more minutes as the Rockets look for the right role players . . . OMRI CASSPI might be getting his last chance at the NBA. CENTERS: DWIGHT HOWARD should be much happier in Houston, though the Rockets still have to convince him that he can dominate as a pick-and-roll player. He should make everyone forget about his season with the Lakers . . . The fact is OMER ASIK just doesn't fit alongside Howard. But if he stays somewhat happy in Houston, he could be a valuable second-unit player . . . MARCUS CAMBY has latched on to chase a ring.

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


Memphis (12-15) at Houston (18-11), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Houston Rockets are looking to use perhaps their most impressive victory of the season as a springboard to more consistency - which has proven elusive of late.

Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies are hoping their recent wins aren't merely an aberration.

Houston seeks a 10th home win in 12 tries Thursday night against the Grizzlies.

The Rockets (19-11) put together winning streaks of three and five games last month but have been much more inconsistent in December. They've alternated wins and losses in their last eight games, though they were rather impressive in Wednesday's 111-98 victory over San Antonio. They shot better than 52 percent for the third straight game and were 12 of 24 from 3-point range.

James Harden scored 28 after missing two games due to an ankle injury while Dwight Howard finished with 15 points and 20 rebounds. Each of Houston's three other starters also scored at least 13 points as the Rockets became just the fourth team to make more than half its shots against the Spurs.

"I think we can be very good," said Chandler Parsons, who went 5 of 9 from beyond the arc and scored 21. "It's obviously a process, and we're getting better every single day. But when we defend like that, rebound well and get out in transition, we're tough to beat."

Houston raced out to a 27-9 lead and finished with 40 points in the first quarter, tying its season high for the first 12 minutes.

"Our guys really came out on fire," said coach Kevin McHale, whose team recorded 28 assists compared to 11 turnovers for its best assist-to-turnover ratio this season. "They were excited to play. Really moved the ball; attacked."

The Rockets were able to overcome a poor shooting performance in their first meeting of the season with Memphis, taking a 93-86 road victory on Nov. 25 despite a 6-of-24 mark from 3-point range. Harden, who totaled 61 points in two home matchups against Memphis last season, missed last month's meeting with a sore left foot.

The Grizzlies (12-15) have managed to win consecutive games for the first time in more than a month, though those victories came against Utah and New York squads with a combined 17-42 record. Memphis had dropped five straight prior to a 95-87 victory over the Knicks on Saturday.

"We're not going to pat ourselves on the back just yet," Tony Allen said. "Coming in, playing teams like New York and Utah, I believe we're supposed to get those wins. We did a good job of doing that and now we've got a big test against the Houston Rockets. Those are the ones we need to climb up in the standings."

Memphis is 5-9 since Marc Gasol went down with a sprained left MCL and there still is no timetable for his return.

Other players have been banged up of late too, with Mike Conley missing two games last week due to a thigh injury and Allen dealing with a sore ankle. Tayshaun Prince is day-to-day after sitting out the last three contests with a sore left knee. James Johnson is listed as a probable starter for the third straight game.

Conley was just 2 of 14 from the field in the first meeting and is shooting 36.1 percent over his last six contests versus Houston.

The Rockets, who are 6-1 on the second night of back-to-backs, had won 13 in a row at home against the Grizzlies prior to an 82-78 loss on April 12.
