STARTING LINEUPS & INJURIES
The Kings bring to the table Mr. Beno Udrih, the Gentleman Tyreke Evans, Francisco Garcia Esq., goodie Carl Landry and Sir Samuel Dalembert. Off the bench we'll see Pooh Jeter, Omri Casspi, Darnell Jackson and perhaps Jason Thompson or Donte Greene. DeMarcus Cousins should also play, provided he hasn't decided on season-ending laser surgery on his professionalism.
Mike Conley, Rudy Gay, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol are definites in the the Memphis starting five, provided that Cousins' contagious unprofessionalism reeks havoc on the Grizzlies locker room. Xavier Henry is a question mark; if he doesn't play, Sam Young should get the start because O.J. Mayo is a big boy off the bench now. Hasheem Thabeet will play. Hasheem Thabeet ... will play.

MATCHUP OF THE GAME
Zach Randolph vs. Carl Landry. They aren't dissimilar, you know ...
PLAYER TO WATCH
Tyreke Evans' foot will deserve special attention again, given that Monday's game came with a bit of rest and today's match has just one off-day ... an off-day in which Evans practiced with the team, a rarity of late. Evans' cut on the ball should tell the tale.
