Preview: Grizzlies vs. Rockets

The Houston Rockets are in the early stages of their post-Yao Ming era now that the former NBA All-Star from China has retired due to ongoing foot injuries. The Rockets have a new coach in Kevin McHale and are in the process of integrating a host of new faces to go with veterans like former Grizzly point guard Kyle Lowry, guard Kevin Martin, and forward Louis Scola.

While Oklahoma City would go on to advance to the conference finals, their matchup against the Grizzlies was the start of the NBA's newest rivalry featuring two of the league's young, yet talented teams. This is the first of four meetings between the two clubs, who will play twice in the season's first 16 days.
