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.
SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: GREIVIS VASQUEZ seems to have the edge in the point guard battle. He's a pass-first floor general who fits better in a lineup full of chuckers . . . ISAIAH THOMAS will have a major role whether he starts or not. He can score, and while his lack of size is a defensive liability, he makes up for it with harassing on-ball pressure . . . MARCUS THORNTON will eventually be relegated to a smaller role, but the gunning combo guard will get his minutes until Ben McLemore is ready . . . BEN MCLEMORE takes a lot of heat for his lack of assertiveness, but he can knock down corner threes and is an outstanding athlete, which is enough to make him a fine role player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE is kicking around as trade bait . . . Second-rounder RAY MCCALLUM should earn a bench role.FORWARDS: With his potential to be a solid defender, JASON THOMPSON is likely to retain his starting job. He's an afterthought on offense, though . . . LUC RICHARD MBAH A MOUTE seems like a natural to slide into the starting lineup. He can defend multiple spots and doesn't need touches on a team of players who do . . . CARL LANDRY could unseat Thompson. We see him in the same kind of bench role he had in Golden State. He's very good offensively and a relentless rebounder, but will struggle defensively against top-line forwards . . . JOHN SALMONS avoided the amnesty axe, though his role will likely be reduced again . . . Stretch four PATRICK PATTERSON is on the fringe of this rotation . . . Streaky shooting should have TRAVIS OUTLAW in and out of the rotation. CENTERS: The new regime of head coach Michael Malone will try again with DEMARCUS COUSINS, who continues to show flashes of dominance but too often plays and acts like a head case. He's playing for a contract, which would presumably have him on his best behavior . . . CHUCK HAYES will continue to be a second-unit glue guy at the four and five.

*Grizzlies-Kings Preview* =========================


Memphis (4-5) at Sacramento (2-6), 6:00 p.m. EDT

The Memphis Grizzlies pulled out a needed win their last time out behind Zach Randolph.

The Sacramento Kings, meanwhile, failed to take advantage of another big game from DeMarcus Cousins.

Randolph and Cousins figure to bang bodies when the visiting Grizzlies go for a fifth consecutive win over the Kings on Sunday.

After suffering its first set of back-to-back losses, Memphis (4-5) opened a four-game road trip with Friday's 89-86 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. Randolph, who was held to a combined 22 points in the previous two games, bounced back with 28 and 11 rebounds for his team-leading fifth double-double.

Marc Gasol also came up big with 18 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, three blocks and three steals.

"Everybody knows that we go as Zach goes. That's our horse, him and Marc. And we need them to continue that throughout the year," guard Tony Allen said. "Everybody came here with their antennas up, and everybody just wanted to get this win more than the other team. And it showed. We played hard for 48 minutes."

The Grizzlies improved to 4-1 when Randolph scores at least 15 points.

"Zach is Zach," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said. "You can try to stop it (but) you're not going to do it."

The Grizzlies, who had dropped their first three road games, held a 51-40 edge on the glass and outscored the Lakers 44-36 in the paint.

"It felt good, especially being our first road win of the season," Randolph said. "We had been up and down and inconsistent, so it was just good to get a win and build from here."

Randolph and company could be in for a stiff test down low against Cousins, who leads the Kings (2-6) with 22.8 points - 6.3 more than his career mark - and 10.0 boards per game. Cousins scored 26 on 12-of-23 shooting to go along with 13 boards and three blocks Friday, but Sacramento couldn't keep up with Detroit in a 97-90 defeat.

"DeMarcus Cousins is a heck of a player," Pistons center Andre Drummond said. "I knew what I was getting myself into tonight. He's one of the best centers in the league."

Isaiah Thomas added 18 points and seven assists off the bench and former Grizzlies guard Greivis Vasquez had 13 and six, respectively. However, Vasquez matched a career high with eight of the team's 17 turnovers.

"You can't win games if you consistently beat yourself," said coach Michael Malone, whose team has committed an NBA-low 102 turnovers. "This is one of the few games this year that we turned the ball over at a high rate.

While Kings fans set a Guinness world record for loudest noise at an indoor arena at 126.0 decibels Friday, Sacramento hasn't had much of a home-court advantage. The Kings are 1-4 on their own court this month.

Sacramento has dropped 11 of 13 to the Grizzlies, including all four matchups last season by an average of 14.3 points. Gasol has averaged 19.0 points, 10.7 boards and 3.0 blocks in the last three showdowns, while Mike Conley scored a combined 47 on 57.7 percent shooting in the last two.

Conley, averaging a team-leading 19.1 points, has posted just 11 in each of Memphis' last two road games while going a combined 8 of 26 from the floor.

Cousins has scored 22 or 23 points in four of his last five games against the Grizzlies.
