MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen will play team owner Robert Pera in a game of one-on-one for charity.

Pera, 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds, will square off against the 6-4, 213-pound Allen on Saturday afternoon at the Grizzlies' practice gym at the FedEx Forum. Pera will donate $100,000 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, win or lose.

Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph will officiate the game.

Pera played high school basketball even though he was only 5-6 in his junior year. He had a growth spurt after high school.

The event is closed to the public, but it will be available for streaming on www.grizzlies.com.
