The Memphis Grizzlies are always a tough matchup for the Indiana Pacers but those matchups aren't the focus of the preseason game between the two teams on Saturday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

For one thing, the normal starting rotations won't have a chance to play against each other with Danny Granger out for the Pacers and George Hill a game-time decision at best. The Grizz haven't played all of their starters together much in preseason either.

Regardless of the opponent, the Pacers need to focus on their own execution at both ends of the floor. Frank Vogel should have the team's undivided attention coming off of the disappointing showing in Orlando on Friday. Plus, this is the last home warm-up game before the start of the regular season.
