The Orlando Magic head to the FedExForum to take on the surprising Memphis Grizzlies, who have won their last 10 games there. Memphis has a dynamic offense led by power forward Zach Randolph, who's doing his usual 20-point, 10-rebound thing much more efficiently this season; and Rudy Gay, whose athleticism and finishing ability have helped him shoot 47% from the field and average 5.6 foul shots per game. Remarkably, the Grizzlies field the league's 8th-most efficient offense despite only having two reliable three-point shooting threats. Memphis leads the league by a wide margin in offensive rebounding rate, grabbing nearly one-third of its own missed shots. Limiting second-chance opportunities against the Grizzlies is key to stopping their offense.

This game could be a tough one for Orlando, which has struggled against the league's more physical frontcourt presences this season. And although the Grizzlies aren't a great defensive team, center Marc Gasol proved capable of defending Orlando's Dwight Howard one-on-one in his two meetings with Howard last year.
