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.
MIAMI: GUARDS: DWYANE WADE will continue to take a smaller role during the regular season, as the Heat try desperately to keep him fresh for the playoffs. He's attacking the rim far less than he used to . . . MARIO CHALMERS will continue to start, playing off the ball more than any other point guard . . . RAY ALLEN will once again serve as sixth man, providing long-range shooting off the bench. He didn't start a single game last year, and at age 38, he'll rarely play full-time minutes as Miami looks toward the postseason . . . NORRIS COLE continues to inch up on Chalmers' starting role, improving nicely between his first and second seasons. But as long as Chalmers is the superior shooter, Cole will play behind him. FORWARDS: LEBRON JAMES is the best player in the league by a wide margin. There's no reason he shouldn't win his third straight MVP award . . . SHANE BATTIER is back as a glue guy, flopper and corner-three shooter. He'll play part-time minutes, often coming off the bench . . . UDONIS HASLEM will likely start, but he rarely stays on the floor for even half of a game. The Heat will continue to rotate big men alongside Chris Bosh . . . MICHAEL BEASLEY provides this team with an athlete who can put the ball in the basket coming off the bench. He must prove he can stay focused and out of trouble . . . RASHARD LEWIS may step into a slightly bigger role now that Mike Miller is gone. His troublesome knees won't allow him to play a lot of minutes, but he still shoots it well enough to help for a few minutes a night . . . JAMES JONES might have to do more than enjoy a courtside seat now that Miller is gone. CENTERS: CHRIS BOSH plays center in the Heat's small-ball lineup. He'll do his thing in the high post, and he's one of Miami's rotating rim protectors . . . CHRIS ANDERSEN did enough last postseason to earn a part-time role this year . . . The Heat hope GREG ODEN and Birdman will stagger their injuries. Oden should be part of a rotation alongside Bosh . . . JOEL ANTHONY is a half-step above team mascot.

*Grizzlies-Heat Preview* ========================


Memphis (40-27) at Miami (46-20), 7:30 p.m. EDT

After losing a game without LeBron James for the first time in nearly a year, the Miami Heat hope he's back at full strength to face one of the league's hottest teams.

Even with the four-time MVP, Miami has had a tough time with the Memphis Grizzlies.

No Western Conference club has a better record against the Heat over the past seven seasons - or since James' arrival - than the Grizzlies, who go to Miami on Friday night for the first of back-to-back matchups with the top teams in the East.

The Heat (46-20) had won six straight games James had missed, going back to April 2, and beat Portland and Chicago in the only ones he sat out this season heading into Wednesday's trip to Boston. Back spasms prevented him from playing, and Miami blew a 14-point lead in a 101-96 loss to a Celtics team which had dropped five in a row.

"(His back) was sore in the walkthrough today, but he was able to go through it so I didn't think much of it," coach Erik Spoelstra said. "It just didn't get better by game-time so it was a pretty easy decision on our part. We'll see how he feels when we get back to Miami."

Dwyane Wade also hopes to be feeling better, having dealt with a bloody nose before and during the game. He had a team-high 17 points but shot 2 for 9 in the second half.

"I didn't feel right the whole time I was out there, tried to keep playing," Wade said. "Trainers did a good job trying to stop it. I felt like a boxer."

The Heat may need a productive Wade to have a good shot at beating the Grizzlies considering they're 2-8 against them when he hasn't played or was held below 22 points.

James has had his share of problems with Memphis (40-27), averaging 19.7 points on 42.3 percent shooting in the last three meetings. The Grizzlies are 3-2 in this series since James became part of it - he's played in every game - and their 7-4 record versus Miami since the start of 2006-07 is the best of any team other than Boston.

The Heat are three games behind East-leading Indiana, which will visit Memphis on Saturday. Memphis has won 13 of 17 and has the league's best record since Jan. 10, going 25-8, while Miami is a pedestrian 19-12 with losses in six of its last nine.

The Grizzlies enter this pair of imposing matchups having moved into seventh place in the West, but only percentage points ahead of Dallas and 1 1/2 games better than ninth-place Phoenix.

"Obviously, we know who they are and this is a big test for us," guard Tony Allen told the NBA's official website regarding the next two games. "Each game down the stretch is going to feel like a playoff game and we have to understand that each possession counts."

The Heat have often had trouble against Grizzlies big men Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, and both are coming off strong games in a 96-86 home win over Utah on Wednesday. Randolph had 21 points and 11 rebounds for his 39th double-double - tied for fifth in the league - while Gasol added 20 and 10, respectively.

"They have two physical guys (Randolph and Gasol)," Jazz forward Derrick Favors said. "They know how to play off each other and use their bodies. They are just tough."

Miami did win the most recent meeting, 98-91 at home March 1 last season, but even that was a one-point game until James hit a key 3-pointer with 24 seconds left.
