MEMPHIS: GUARDS: The Grizzlies will scale back MIKE CONLEY's minutes a bit. He's a quality starting point guard, but seemed to lose some pep as last season wore on . . . TONY ALLEN figures to see more playing time now that O.J. Mayo is gone. He's an outstanding defender who will be the fifth option on offense . . . JERRYD BAYLESS figures to become the new sixth man and Allen platoon partner. He'll also spell Conley at the point, leading to solid minutes for the combo guard . . . Second-year man JOSH SELBY has a chance for a rotation spot after starring in the Summer League. He has big offensive upside . . . WAYNE ELLINGTON seems like an emergency plan for the second unit . . . This is likely a redshirt year for talented, but erratic, rookie TONY WROTEN. FORWARDS: RUDY GAY is going to lead the Grizzlies in touches and shots. He's not shy about looking for iso situations . . . ZACH RANDOLPH had trouble getting back into the flow after his knee injury. It's always been a fragile balance with Z-Bo, and he could be an odd man out going forward . . . MARREESE SPEIGHTS should be the offensive focal point of the bench unit as their sixth man . . . QUINCY PONDEXTER is a versatile defensive piece who will see solid minutes off the bench. He's a non-factor offensively, though . . . DARRELL ARTHUR suffered a non-displaced fractured in his leg in late September, and will not likely be ready when the season begins. A rising young big, his role will depend on when his athleticism comes back. CENTERS: The Grizzlies are at their best when MARC GASOL is getting touches and shots on the offensive end. Whether or not Gay and Randolph are willing to share is a concern, but Gasol has to be aggressive when the ball is in his hands . . . HAMED HADDADI will continue to play limited minutes off the bench.
ATLANTA: GUARDS: GM Danny Ferry has really talked up JEFF TEAGUE, who will be more of a traditional point guard with Joe Johnson gone . . . DEVIN HARRIS is going to play plenty of minutes, both alongside Teague and off the bench . . . LOU WILLIAMS is a sixth man. He lacks the mentality to run the point and the size to guard opposing twos. His role will be similar to what it was in Philly . . . KYLE KORVER and ANTHONY MORROW are pure shooters who do little else. They can play the three in a pinch, and the hot hand will get the minutes . . . Coach Larry Drew could call on DeSHAWN STEVENSON for the occasional defense-heavy lineup. More likely, he'll rack up the DNP-CDs . . . JOHN JENKINS might be the best shooter in the rookie class, but he'll be buried on the depth chart. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH rescinded his trade demand, perhaps because he'll now be the focal point of the offense. He was more aggressive on both ends of the floor last year. As long as he resists the urge to float on the perimeter, he should emerge as an All-Star . . . Considering the makeup of this roster, Atlanta will utilize a lot of three-guard lineups. Korver and Morrow can stretch a defense from that third guard/small forward spot, with Stevenson stepping in as an agitator . . . After scoring double-figures six times in April, IVAN JOHNSON was re-signed to once again provide some muscle inside . . . Rookie MIKE SCOTT is polished after five years at Virginia, but doesn't have the athleticism to be an impact player . . . ANTHONY TOLLIVER is a defensive specialist with very little offense to contribute. CENTERS: AL HORFORD will get his wish to play more power forward this season, though he'll remain their primary option at center. He's healthy again and is one of the most consistent bigs in the NBA . . . ZAZA PACHULIA filled in admirably for Horford last year. But it's back to bench duty for the bruising big . . . JOHAN PETRO is French for "12th man."

*Grizzlies-Hawks Preview* =========================


Memphis (30-17) at Atlanta (26-21), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The Atlanta Hawks and Memphis Grizzlies are struggling to find consistency, and recent sloppy play has only made that more difficult.

Atlanta hopes to correct those mistakes and beat the visiting Grizzlies for the 11th time in 13 meetings on Wednesday night.

The Hawks (26-21) have dropped 11 of 17 games after going 17-6 over the previous 23 as they seemed to be a factor in the Southeast Division. They've gone from 1 1/2 games back of first-place Miami to six.

Memphis (30-17) finds itself in a similar situation in the Southwest Division. A 6-7 stretch has dropped the Grizzlies from one-half game back of first place to seven games behind division-leading San Antonio.

This series has been one-sided lately with the Hawks taking 10 of the last 12 meetings. Atlanta has averaged 101.6 points on 49.4 percent shooting - 40.2 from behind the arc - in those games.

That success continued Dec. 8, when Josh Smith led the way with 24 points in a 93-83 victory at Memphis. However, he was held to 11 points in a 96-77 loss in the most recent matchup at home on Feb. 2, 2012, ending Atlanta's five-game winning streak in the series there.

The Hawks are coming off consecutive losses to two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, following a 17-point loss to Indiana on Saturday with a 114-103 defeat at Indiana on Tuesday.

Smith scored nine points on 4-of-12 shooting against the Pacers and was responsible for four of his team's 18 turnovers. The Hawks also committed a season-high 33 personal fouls, as the Pacers made 31 of 40 from the stripe.

"When I look at the stat sheet, the most glaring thing is the free throws," coach Larry Drew said. "We fouled way too much. From the game plan and game strategy, I thought we tried to execute the game plan, but we put them on the free throw line too many times."

Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins has his own concerns after watching his team fall 96-90 to Phoenix on Tuesday. Memphis coughed up the ball up seven times in the final quarter - three in the final 3 minutes.

"The disappointing part is they outscored us in the paint 52-40, and they got 11 offensive rebounds for 16 second-chance points," Hollins said. "Then we made some sloppy turnovers coming down the stretch for no reason."

Jerryd Bayless continues to emerge as a solid contributor for the Grizzlies. He's scored in double figures in seven straight games, averaging 21.0 during that span while shooting 53.3 percent - 6 for 13 from behind the arc - over the past four.

The guard is coming off his best performance yet, pouring in a season-high 29 points on 11 for 15 from the floor.

Zach Randolph averages 21.5 points and 12.5 rebounds in eight career visits to Atlanta, but he missed the latest matchup there with a knee injury. The big man hasn't been very productive on the road lately, averaging 8.6 points on 30.6 percent shooting (19 for 62) in his last five away games.

He may find himself battling Al Horford in the paint. The Hawks' forward-center is averaging 19.8 points over the past six games. He had 19 points and 14 boards at Memphis in December.
