KEY GAME INFORMATION
CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: KEMBA WALKER has become a more efficient scorer as well as a capable distributor. He'll sacrifice some shots with Al Jefferson coming in, but he should have more space with which to operate. Down the line, he could mesh nicely with pick-and-pop four Cody Zeller . . . GERALD HENDERSON transformed from a raw athlete into an effective, efficient scorer in the second half of last season. He should be the No. 2 or 3 option this year . . . RAMON SESSIONS is locked in as a sixth man. He's not a shooter, but his ability to get to the line makes him an effective second-unit scorer . . . BEN GORDON seems to be going through the motions at this point. His real value this season is his enormous expiring contract. FORWARDS: MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST is going to be a quality NBA player for a long time, but he's not close to being a major factor offensively. He'll continue to defend and rebound effectively for a wing, but he's a No. 4 or 5 option on the offensive end of the court . . . JOSH MCROBERTS proved good enough to be a rotational player on a bad team last year. He has a chance to start early on while the Bobcats bring some young guys along . . . CODY ZELLER struggled against length and athleticism in college, so it seems the 'Cats think he can be more of a stretch, pick-and-pop four. If he proves to be a shooter, he's athletic enough and a good enough rebounder to be a solid NBA starter . . . JEFFERY TAYLOR is a forgettable second-unit player who can defend a couple of positions. ANTHONY TOLLIVER won't see the floor much, but he can stretch the floor with his shooting ability. CENTERS: We'll see how the Bobcats mesh with AL JEFFERSON, the NBA's worst defensive big man and a lane-clogging black hole on offense. He can score, and at (an incredible) $40 million-plus, Charlotte will run everything through him . . . BISMACK BIYOMBO will play some alongside Jefferson, as the Bobcats desperately need to cancel out Jefferson's defense. But the young big man figures to be used more sparingly this year . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD is still kicking around.
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.

*Bobcats-Grizzlies Preview* ===========================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Charlotte (28-33) at Memphis (34-26), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Charlotte Bobcats are on track for the franchise's second playoff berth thanks to some strong play at home, but they could use some better performances on the road.

The Bobcats would appear to have another challenge with Saturday night's visit to the Memphis Grizzlies, winners of five in a row on their own floor.

Charlotte (29-33) is seventh in the Eastern Conference and five games ahead of ninth-place Detroit after earning its sixth consecutive home win Friday, 101-92 over Cleveland. Al Jefferson had a team-best 28 points as the Bobcats surpassed their win total from the previous two seasons.

"The playoffs started three weeks ago," Jefferson said. "We're right there. Now we have to turn it on and keep it on. From here on out, we have to be focused and locked in.

"We've got to continue to grow and be professional. We can't be satisfied. Where we're at is a long way from where we were two years ago, but we want to continue to get better.

Kemba Walker chipped in 20 points and 14 assists while helping the club overcome a third consecutive absence from starting guard Gerald Henderson, who has a strained right calf.

Henderson missed the finale of a winless three-game road trip Monday against Miami. The Bobcats, losers of 13 of 19 on the road, also faced two of the West's top two teams during that trek in San Antonio and Oklahoma City.

The Grizzlies (35-26) are a game out of eighth place in the West, but have the league's second-best record since Jan. 10 at 20-7. One of those losses, though, came at the hands of the Bobcats, who won 92-89 on Feb. 22.

Walker had a team-leading 31 points, including four free throws in the final 24 seconds, as Charlotte ended a three-game skid in the series.

The Bobcats are 2-6 all-time in Memphis and have lost in their last two visits by a combined 52 points.

The Grizzlies enter having taken 11 of 13 in Memphis and secured their longest win streak there this season with a 110-96 victory over Cleveland last Saturday. Memphis has also matched a season high by topping 100 points in its last three home contests.

The Grizzlies fell well short of the century mark Friday in Chicago but earned their third victory in their last four overall. They held the Bulls to less than 15 points in the first and fourth quarters in an 85-77 win.

"Our defense was pretty steady," coach Dave Joerger said. "Thirty-nine in the first half, 38 in the second half. That was just solid for us. We kept them off the glass and they're a good offensive rebounding team. We contested shots and we pressured guys."

Marc Gasol had 18 points and 10 rebounds while Zach Randolph had 10 points and 11 boards in his return from a one-game absence due to the flu.

Jefferson has 20 or more points in 22 of his last 25 games but matched a season low with six points on 2-of-13 shooting against Memphis last month. In five games since, he's averaged 29.0 points and shot 63.5 percent.
