MEMPHIS: LAST SEASON: 22-60, missed playoffs.
COACH: J.B. Bickerstaff (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: C Marc Gasol (17.2 ppg), G Mike Conley (17.1 ppg), F Kyle Anderson (7.9 ppg, Spurs), F JaMychal Green (10.3 ppg), G/F Dillon Brooks (11 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Tyreke Evans, G Mario Chalmers, G Ben McLemore, F Jarell Martin, F Deyonta Davis
KEY ADDITIONS: F/C Jaren Jackson Jr., Anderson, G/F Garrett Temple, F Omri Casspi, G Shelvin Mack
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Conley is healthy after surgery to fix his left heel, an injury that limited him to 12 games last season. Jackson just needs to follow up his summer league play that had people ready to re-rank the June draft order and move him up to No. 1 overall. Anderson must show he can do more after starting 67 games with the Spurs. And whether Chandler Parsons really, finally, is healthy is a big question.
OUTLOOK: A healthy Conley and Gasol gives the Grizzlies their key leaders and the chance to compete in the West. The Grizzlies started 5-1 a year ago with big wins over Golden State and Houston before injuries attacked the roster. Now they've retooled, bringing in more experience to help Conley and Gasol. Memphis will need those veterans to do a bit more. A healthy Parsons helps. The goal is reaching the playoffs for the eighth time in nine seasons after snapping their franchise-best streak of seven straight berths last spring.
NEW ORLEANS: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Alvin Gentry (fourth season, 16th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Elfrid Payton (12.7 ppg, Orlando/Phoenix), G Jrue Holiday (19 ppg), F E'Twaun Moore (12.5 ppg), F Anthony Davis, (28.1 ppg), C Julius Randle (16.1 ppg, Lakers).
KEY LOSSES: C-F DeMarcus Cousins, G Rajon Rondo
KEY ADDITIONS: Randle, Payton
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Davis and Holiday played the best basketball of their careers last season and provide the Pelicans hope of returning to the playoffs. Davis has continued working on building his physique and strength with the expectation that he might have to play more at center now the Cousins is out of the picture. Davis also says his goal is to prove he is the most dominant player in the NBA. Holiday thrived last season when he was able to play more at shooting guard, allowing him to focus more on scoring and crunch-time defending than setting up the offense. The acquisition of Payton should allow Holiday to resume that role.
OUTLOOK: While it's hard to replace Cousins and Rondo, general manager Dell Demps is hoping Randle and Payton wind up being better fits because of their relative youth, defensive play and ability to thrive in an up-tempo offense. Gentry has said he wants the Pelicans to play even faster than their NBA-leading pace last season. It just might work. New Orleans' top three front court players 'Davis, Randle and Nikola Mirotic' all have shown they can be effective playing that way.
Grizzlies hope to repeat defensive performance against Pelicans

The Memphis Grizzlies are coming off an excellent defensive performance.

The New Orleans Pelicans are coming off an excellent offensive performance.

Both teams will try to build on those outings when they meet Friday night in the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.

The Grizzlies held the Los Angeles Clippers to their lowest point total of the season, 31 below their average, in a 96-86 home victory Wednesday night.

On the same night the Pelicans had six double-figure scorers and accumulated season highs in 3-pointers made (17 on 29 attempts) and assists (36) in a 132-106 home victory against the Dallas Mavericks.

Memphis held Los Angeles to 33.8 percent (25 of 74) shooting, the lowest percentage it has allowed this season. The Grizzles outscored the Clippers 50-30 in the paint.

"Everybody stepped up," forward JaMychal Green told the team's official website after nine Grizzlies played at least 15 minutes. "We got the game won playing defense and moving the ball as a team."

The only one of the 10 Grizzlies to play who didn't log at least 15 minutes was recently signed center Joakim Noah, who had four points and three rebounds in 13 minutes in his Memphis debit.

"I think it was a great start for him," Memphis coach J.B. Bickerstaff told the Grizzlies website. "We'll continue to build off of it."

New Orleans, which started the season 4-0 but had lost six of eight before Wednesday, will try to build off the victory against the Mavericks.

"We moved the basketball," Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. "We got out and ran. We did everything that we had to (do) to try and replicate what we did earlier in the season and I thought we did a good job with that.

"We get 51 baskets and we got 36 assists, and so that's saying the ball is moving and we're getting it to the right people."

One of the right people was forward Julius Randle, who has started the last two games while Nikola Mirotic has been ill. Randle had a career-high 37 points in a 129-126 loss to the Clippers on Monday and had 27 points and 18 rebounds against the Mavericks.

"He makes it look easy and we feed off of him," guard Jrue Holiday said of Randle. "When he has that energy, he's a bull. He's hard to stop."

Moving into the starting lineup has allowed Randle to play more minutes alongside All-Star forward Anthony Davis, who also scored 27 points against Dallas despite missing a few minutes of the third quarter after twisting his left ankle.

"Anytime you share the floor with a guy like that, it's always going to make the game easier," Randle said. "It's a different dynamic. It's a lot for defenses to really adjust to."

Gentry said Randle's play the last two games has him considering keeping Randle in the starting lineup even after Mirotic returns, which could be as soon as the game against the Grizzlies.

Speaking of lineup changes, Gentry started Solomon Hill in place of E'Twaun Moore at forward against the Mavericks to try to replace some of the offense lost by the bench with the insertion of Randle into the starting lineup.

"I thought it would be good and he would give us another ball-handler and another scorer off the bench," Gentry said. "I thought it worked out great. I thought Solomon did a good job as a starter. I thought he was solid. The shots that he took were good and I thought he was good defensively."
