DOWNTOWN MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen will play team owner Robert Pera in a game of one-on-one for charity Saturday afternoon at FexEdForum's Coventry Health Care Practice Facility.

The charity game is closed to the public, the team said, but it will be available for streaming on www.grizzlies.com.

Pera, who is 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds, will square off against the 6-4, 213-pound Allen on Saturday afternoon. Win or lose both have agreed to donate $100,000 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital after their 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.

Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph will officiate the game.

The 1-on-1 charity game kicks off the Grizzlies' 2013-14 season.
