Marc Gasol's an All-Star but the real hero in Memphis is Tony Allen. His effort on the defensive end shut down Kevin Martin in a Memphis win over Houston and his game-winning tip against the Warriors Saturday extended the team's winning streak to four. The future is only looking brighter as team doctors cleared Zach Randolph to begin non-contact drills and he could be back in the lineup at the beginning of March. Playing free and at full health, Memphis could come out of the break as one of the West's elite teams. —Sean Evans
