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.
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.

(UPDATES fourth graf with Memphis moving ahead of Dallas for seventh in West.)

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

By NOEY KUPCHAN STATS Writer

Memphis (37-26) at New Orleans (26-37), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Memphis Grizzlies are fighting for a playoff spot and the New Orleans Pelicans are at the bottom of the Southwest Division.

It's been the Pelicans, however, who have controlled this series of late.

With both teams seeking a fourth straight win, visiting Memphis tries to avoid its first series sweep at the hands of New Orleans in six seasons Wednesday night.

The Grizzlies (37-26) are coming off Tuesday's 109-99 victory over Portland, moving percentage points ahead of Dallas for seventh in the Western Conference and one game ahead of Phoenix for the eighth and final slot. Marc Gasol had 19 points, nine boards and seven assists as Memphis shot a season-high 56.0 percent.

"Even though we are in, we want to be higher," said guard Courtney Lee, whose team opens a crucial three-game road trip Wednesday. "We're still chasing, and I think that's the right mindset to have going forward because if you continue to chase, you'll never get complacent and fall off."

Zach Randolph also came up big with 18 points and 12 boards, and Mike Conley scored 17. The Grizzlies outscored the Trail Blazers 54-36 in the paint and held a 20-12 edge in transition.

Keeping things going could prove difficult against a Pelicans team that's given them trouble. New Orleans has taken four straight in the series, including all three meetings this season while allowing just 91.3 points per game.

Anthony Davis had 27 points, 10 rebounds, four steals and four blocks in the most recent matchup, a 95-92 victory in Memphis on Jan. 20. The Pelicans haven't swept the Grizzlies since 2007-08.

New Orleans (26-37) has followed a season worst-tying eight-game skid by matching a season best with three straight wins. Davis, averaging 29.7 points and 15.3 boards during the winning streak, had a career high-tying 32 points to go with 17 rebounds and six blocks in Sunday's 111-107 overtime win over Denver.

No Pelican had ever posted as many points, boards and blocks in a single game since the team was founded as the Charlotte Hornets in 1988.

"That's a testament to my team. They're giving me the ball where I can score and cutting hard so their man can't help, making big shots, playing defense, having my back if I try to go block a shot, boxing out and letting me get the rebounds," said Davis, who turned 21 on Tuesday. "It all goes to the team and not just me. I can't do it by myself."

Tyreke Evans has emerged as another dangerous option since moving into the starting lineup, averaging 22.0 points while shooting 51.1 percent over the last six games.

"He brings a lot. He's such a great player," Davis said of Evans. "In my mind, he's an All-Star with the way he's able to make big plays and attack the basket and make tough layups. He finds guys and is unbelievable. His being in the starting lineup is huge for us. Hopefully we will get a few more wins in this homestand."

New Orleans erased an early 16-point deficit against the Nuggets by holding them to 40 points in the second half. Anthony Morrow's jumper with 1 second left in regulation sent the game into OT.

"We worked hard. We love games like this," Davis said. "We locked down defensively in the third and fourth quarters. That's what we have to do: play our defense, rebound the ball, and get to the rim. ... That's what we need to win as a team."
