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.
PORTLAND: GUARDS: DAMIAN LILLARD is for real, an elite shooter and a natural running the pick-and-roll. Though we're a little worried about what will happen if pick-and-pop partner LaMarcus Aldridge is dealt sometime this season . . . WESLEY MATTHEWS will be battling for playing time with Portland loading up on wings . . . C.J. MCCOLLUM can play either guard spot, but primarily he's a scorer and a potentially elite shooter. He is, however, out a few months with a foot fracture. . . MO WILLIAMS will provide the Blazers with a veteran guard presence who is more than capable of lighting it up on any given night. He is, however, a major defensive liability'If he straightens out his jumper, WILL BARTON could end up being a solid second-unit player . . . EARL WATSON gives them a much more reliable back-up point guard than Ronnie Price was . . . Sharpshooter ALLEN CRABBE will likely find himself in the D-League early on. FORWARDS: LAMARCUS ALDRIDGE's name will be in trade rumors all season, but it won't affect his role as this team's No. 1 option . . . NICOLAS BATUM will continue to do a little bit of everything, playing point forward to allow Lillard to play off the ball at times, and serving as a dangerous three-point shooter . . . DORELL WRIGHT can lock opponents down when he wants to. He'll push Wesley Matthews for minutes . . . Portland will be the next team to try to squeeze production out of 2012 No. 5 pick THOMAS ROBINSON. After Sacramento and Houston both gave up on him almost immediately, Robinson in danger of falling off the NBA map . . . VICTOR CLAVER provides some energy as a second-unit bit player . . . JOEL FREELAND has six fouls to give. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ will be a better fit alongside Aldridge than J.J. Hickson was. Lopez isn't skilled, but he can take some defensive responsibilities away from Aldridge . . . MEYERS LEONARD is, as expected, still a work in progress. He's enormous and there's some raw talent, but he too often looks lost.

*Grizzlies-Trail Blazers Preview* =================================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Memphis (22-20) at Portland (33-12), 10:00 p.m. EDT

After coming up empty on the road again, the Portland Trail Blazers will try to bounce back by extending their sizable home winning streak.

Waiting for the Blazers, however, will be the red-hot Memphis Grizzlies.

Portland will try to earn a sixth straight home win Tuesday night by sending Memphis to only its second loss in the last nine games.

The Blazers (33-12) shot a season-low 33.7 percent in a 103-88 loss to Golden State on Sunday, and leading scorer LaMarcus Aldridge missed 12 of 14 shots while matching his lowest output of the campaign with 10 points. He didn't score his first points until 2:18 before halftime.

The 15-point margin equaled Portland's most lopsided defeat of the season.

"That was a rough game," coach Terry Stotts said. "Golden State did a nice job with its defense. It was just one of those nights where we just didn't have enough at the offensive end."

Stotts' club has been outscored by an average of 12.0 points in its season-high three straight road losses. Portland, however, is outscoring by 10.4 points per game during its current run at home.

The Blazers, though, face a Grizzlies team that's won three in a row on the road and has really hit its stride since the return of reigning NBA defensive player of the year Marc Gasol. Memphis (22-20) has allowed an average of 86.2 points on 40.3 percent shooting in the six contests since Gasol returned from an injured left knee.

The Grizzlies earned their seventh win in eight games Saturday by finishing off a home-and-home sweep of Houston with a 99-81 victory. They held the Rockets to an average of 84.0 points, 21 below their season mark, and 38.8 percent shooting in the back-to-back games.

"We're ready to win and we prepare like we want to win," forward James Johnson said. "We travel like we want to win, and everybody is holding each other accountable. When you put those things together, we beat teams bad."

Memphis will next face the highest scoring team in the league in the Blazers (109.0 ppg). The Grizzlies won the final three matchups last season but that was en route to a franchise-best 56 wins and their first appearance in the Western Conference finals.

They gave up an average of 86.0 points on 40.8 percent shooting in the four games against Portland in 2012-13. The Blazers' Nicolas Batum particularly struggled with 8.3 points per game on 30.8 percent shooting in three of those meetings, and Wesley Matthews averaged 10.3 points on 32.4 percent shooting in the three consecutive defeats.

Aldridge averaged a respectable 17.7 points in his three games against Memphis last season despite shooting 36.2 percent, his lowest against any opponent. His 15.4 lifetime scoring average versus the Grizzlies is his worst against any team.

Memphis' Zach Randolph has averaged 22.7 points on 52.9 percent shooting in seven visits to Portland. He's made 18 of 32 shots (56.3 percent) in his last three road games versus the Blazers but averaged 16.0 points.
