KEY GAME INFORMATION
NEW ORLEANS: GUARDS: This offense will belong to ERIC GORDON. He'll get over the fact that the Hornets matched his offer from Phoenix, and as long as his surgically-repaired knee holds up, he's one of the most complete young scorers in the NBA . . . The Hornets reached for AUSTIN RIVERS with the 10th pick because Monty Williams wants to coach him and thinks he can be an NBA point guard. Rivers has the handle, but his athleticism is ordinary and, more importantly, he has never shown a PG mentality at any level . . . GREIVIS VASQUEZ is the closest thing to a true point guard on this roster. He'll see solid minutes assuming Rivers' adjustment is a tough one . . . Well-rounded ROGER MASON JR. will also provide point guard depth . . . XAVIER HENRY hasn't lived up to his reputation as a shooter, but the Hornets can be patient with him . . . Rookie BRIAN ROBERTS has had a strong enough preseason to likely earn a roster spot. FORWARDS: ANTHONY DAVIS should step right in as a starter. His offensive game is further along than he gets credit for, and on the defensive end he's an absolute force from the basket out to the perimeter . . . He'll probably miss having Dwight Howard drawing in defenses, but RYAN ANDERSON has always been a very good three-point shooter. He and Davis are unique enough talents to share the court even if they're both power forwards . . . AL-FAROUQ AMINU made some strides on the defensive end late last season, which is what will get him minutes under Williams. He's underwhelming on the offensive end . . . If HAKIM WARRICK couldn't succeed as Steve Nash's pick-and-roll partner, it seems unlikely he'll ever help in New Orleans . . . Rookie DARIUS MILLER is looking to establish some kind of role with the team . . . LANCE THOMAS is doubtful to earn a salary to pay off his jewelry debts. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ has always had the ability to protect the rim and does a decent job in space. Look for him to end up grabbing the bulk of minutes in the middle . . . JASON SMITH gives the Hornets a more offensive-minded option off the bench.
INDIANA: GUARDS: The Pacers went 7-2 during the regular season and won a playoff series with GEORGE HILL in the starting five. He averaged 13.9 PPG and 5.3 APG in those regular season starts . . . PAUL GEORGE is a defensive stopper who is making strides on the offensive end. If he can find the touches, his scoring average will rise . . . D.J. AUGUSTIN has a skill set similar to Hill's. Maybe he'll push him for minutes later in the year, but more likely he'll shoot corner threes off the bench . . . GERALD GREEN is another athlete for their second unit . . . LANCE STEPHENSON has a chance for a bigger role, but he's been atrocious to this point of his career. FORWARDS: DANNY GRANGER's touches dropped last season, but his shot selection improved as last year went on. He'll continue to be a borderline All-Star . . . DAVID WEST's knee should be fully recovered from his torn ACL in late 2010-11. He was their best player in the postseason and should be a star this season with his ability to knock down shots . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH looks like he's settling in as a career second unit player. His lack of athleticism really limits his upside . . . JEFF PENDERGRAPH may or may not hold on to a roster spot in a 12th-man role. CENTERS: They're paying ROY HIBBERT like a franchise player, and he has the ability to control both ends of the court. The question is whether they'll now play him 30-plus minutes, or continue to use him as more of a part-time player . . . IAN MAHINMI should step in as a decent backup center . . . Rookie MILES PLUMLEE was a part-time player at Duke and is highly unlikely to contribute in his first season.

*Hornets-Pacers Preview* ========================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

New Orleans (3-5) at Indiana (5-7), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Little was going right for the New Orleans Hornets even before Anthony Davis was forced to sit out another game.

The No. 1 overall pick may be out again Wednesday night when New Orleans visits the Indiana Pacers, who hope to get another solid performance from former Hornet David West.

Davis, who also suffered a concussion earlier this season, missed his third game Tuesday after suffering what the team doctor called a stress reaction in his already sore left ankle. Ryan Anderson started in his place and scored a team-high 15 points, but New Orleans (3-6) fell 102-80 to New York for its fourth straight loss.

The Hornets did not rule out Davis for Wednesday's contest, though he'll likely be a game-time decision.

Rookie Austin Rivers scored a season-high 14 points for New Orleans, which trailed by as many as 26.

"I think there has been a lesson from the last four games," said Robin Lopez, who had 11 points. "We just have to go out there and make our presence felt."

New Orleans may have trouble doing that against an Indiana defense that ranks second in the NBA allowing an average of 90.1 points, especially if Davis can't go.

The Hornets are averaging 77.0 points without Davis compared to 99.0 in the six games with him in the lineup, and this contest kicks off a four-game road trip.

"I think it's very important for us to get out on a good start," center Jason Smith said. "We have to stop the losing and get our minds right."

The Pacers have had their share of struggles playing without Danny Granger, but West scored a season-high 30 points on 10 of 14 from the field and hit all 10 of his free throws in Mondays 96-89 win over Washington.

West, who averaged 16.4 points in eight seasons with the Hornets before signing with Indiana prior to last season, had totaled 29 points in his previous two games combined.

"He's a guy we go to when we've got to get a bucket late in the game," coach Frank Vogel said. "He's done so much for us. He delivered."

The Pacers (5-7) are one of the league's lowest scoring teams averaging 88.8 points, and the struggles of Roy Hibbert haven't helped. Vogel called Hibbert before Monday's game and offered words of encouragement.

The 7-foot-2 center responded by scoring a season-high 20 points and tying his season best with 12 rebounds.

"He's always been supportive, and I appreciated the call," Hibbert said.

"I've just got to strive for consistency, that's the biggest thing. I had a good game but I've got to string a couple of those together. It's nothing to get too excited about or too high on myself or my game."

Despite West and Hibbert playing well, Indiana had trouble holding a 20-point lead and committed 21 turnovers against the league's only winless team.

"I knew our guys have good poise, the guys we had on the floor were veterans," Vogel said. "I trusted that they'd be able to get stops and score down the stretch."

Hibbert finished with 30 points and 13 rebounds in a 117-108 overtime win over the Hornets on Feb. 21 before West had 14 points and 13 boards in a 102-84 victory March 3 to sweep the 2011-12 season series.
