KEY GAME INFORMATION
LA CLIPPERS: GUARDS: CHRIS PAUL was every bit an MVP-caliber player in his first year in L.A. They should monitor his minutes late in the regular season to keep him fresh for the playoffs. . . His Achilles is on schedule to be healed by December, and CHAUNCEY BILLUPS will start once he's healthy. He's likely to lose athleticism, and his leash could be short if he shoots as poorly as he did last year . . . JAMAL CRAWFORD steps in to lead the second unit. We'll see how quickly his inefficient, shoot-first ways grow stale . . . ERIC BLEDSOE was a stud in the playoffs. He can't play extended minutes alongside Paul, but coach Vinny Del Negro knows he has to get Bledsoe on the floor . . . WILLIE GREEN provides capable depth, but he's on the outside looking in at the rotation. FORWARDS: BLAKE GRIFFIN's knee injury likely isn't serious enough to linger into the season. He's starting to develop some post moves to go along with his dunks . . . CARON BUTLER played hurt for most of last year, but still did enough to nail down a starting job for this season . . . LAMAR ODOM moped his way back to L.A. Don't be surprised if he has a strong bounce-back year, especially considering he'll be the Clippers' best defensive big . . . GRANT HILL could see some starts, but more likely the 40-year-old is pegged for limited minutes . . . MATT BARNES will replace Hill once he injures himself again . . . RONNY TURIAF will provide some of the toughness they lost when Reggie Evans left . . . TREY THOMPKINS will continue to languish on the bench, especially after sitting out the preseason with a knee injury. CENTERS: He can block shots and rebound, but at this point DeANDRE JORDAN is just too much of a defensive liability in space to play 30-plus minutes. That's why the Clippers will often pair Lamar Odom with Blake Griffin in the frontcourt . . . RYAN HOLLINS can also defend the basket and has six fouls to give.
ATLANTA: GUARDS: GM Danny Ferry has really talked up JEFF TEAGUE, who will be more of a traditional point guard with Joe Johnson gone . . . DEVIN HARRIS is going to play plenty of minutes, both alongside Teague and off the bench . . . LOU WILLIAMS is a sixth man. He lacks the mentality to run the point and the size to guard opposing twos. His role will be similar to what it was in Philly . . . KYLE KORVER and ANTHONY MORROW are pure shooters who do little else. They can play the three in a pinch, and the hot hand will get the minutes . . . Coach Larry Drew could call on DeSHAWN STEVENSON for the occasional defense-heavy lineup. More likely, he'll rack up the DNP-CDs . . . JOHN JENKINS might be the best shooter in the rookie class, but he'll be buried on the depth chart. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH rescinded his trade demand, perhaps because he'll now be the focal point of the offense. He was more aggressive on both ends of the floor last year. As long as he resists the urge to float on the perimeter, he should emerge as an All-Star . . . Considering the makeup of this roster, Atlanta will utilize a lot of three-guard lineups. Korver and Morrow can stretch a defense from that third guard/small forward spot, with Stevenson stepping in as an agitator . . . After scoring double-figures six times in April, IVAN JOHNSON was re-signed to once again provide some muscle inside . . . Rookie MIKE SCOTT is polished after five years at Virginia, but doesn't have the athleticism to be an impact player . . . ANTHONY TOLLIVER is a defensive specialist with very little offense to contribute. CENTERS: AL HORFORD will get his wish to play more power forward this season, though he'll remain their primary option at center. He's healthy again and is one of the most consistent bigs in the NBA . . . ZAZA PACHULIA filled in admirably for Horford last year. But it's back to bench duty for the bruising big . . . JOHAN PETRO is French for "12th man."

*Clippers-Hawks Preview* ========================

By MATT BEARDMORE STATS Writer

Los Angeles (8-3) at Atlanta (6-4), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Los Angeles Clippers are looking to avoid a sub.-500 trip.

A game against the surging Atlanta Hawks could make that difficult for the Pacific Division leaders.

The Clippers will try to avoid a season-high third consecutive loss on Saturday night when the Hawks look to extend their season-best winning streak to five.

After defeating San Antonio 92-87 on Monday to open its trip - and extending its winning streak to six - Los Angeles (8-4) lost 117-111 to Oklahoma City on Wednesday and 86-76 to Brooklyn on Friday.

The Clippers were outscored 46-29 in the final 24 minutes and shot a season-low 40.3 percent from the field against the Nets. It was Los Angeles' lowest scoring game since a 74-71 loss at Portland on Feb. 16.

"You've got to be able to do it on the road. Good teams can. Good teams execute on the road down the stretch," said Chris Paul, who finished with 14 points and nine assists after committing six fouls in the final period. "Everybody knows what their role is and we got to do better. That starts with me."

Los Angeles, which last dropped three straight March 20-22, will try to avoid losing for a fourth straight time at Philips Arena before returning home for six of seven.

The Hawks (7-4), meanwhile, kick off a five-game homestand after matching their longest winning streak from last season with Friday's 101-91 victory over Charlotte. Al Horford finished with a team season-high 26 points and 13 rebounds as Atlanta improved to 5-1 since an 89-76 loss at the Clippers on Nov. 11.

"I feel like when we play through me a lot of the times it opens up things for other guys as well," Horford said.

One of those guys is newcomer Kyle Korver, who is averaging 14.8 points and has hit 21 of 38 from 3-point range since the Clipper loss. He has nine total 3s and 16 points in each of the last two games.

Atlanta has 59 assists on 82 field goals during that stretch after Jeff Teague handed out a season-best 12 on Friday.

"We're starting to find ourselves and figure out where our spots are on the floor," said Josh Smith, who had a season-best eight assists against the Bobcats.

The Hawks' last five-game winning streak began with a 107-98 road win over Los Angeles on Jan. 2, 2011 .

Atlanta could equal that mark if it continues its strong the defensive end. The Hawks are limiting opponents to 89.8 points per game on 41.0 percent shooting since their last defeat.

The Clippers are scoring 93.5 points per game - 6.7 fewer than their season average - on 41.8 percent from the field over the last two games.

Former Hawk Jamal Crawford has missed 19 of 31 shots during that stretch with 33 points, but he's still the league leader with 19.2 per game off the bench. Crawford wasn't much of a factor in the victory over Atlanta earlier this month, as he finished with 11 points, but it didn't matter as the Hawks totaled their fewest points of the season.

Blake Griffin, who is averaging 17.7 points and 8.7 boards on the trip, finished with a season-best 36 points and eight rebounds in the Clippers' last trip to Atlanta, a 109-102 Hawks win on April 24.

Los Angeles, loser of five of six visiting the Hawks, hasn't swept this season series since 2005-06.
