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.
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.

*Hornets-Clippers Preview* ==========================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

New Orleans (3-8) at Los Angeles (8-5), 10:30 p.m. EDT

Chris Paul wasn't pleased with how the Los Angeles Clippers played during their recent road trip.

Returning home to face his struggling former team may be what Los Angeles needs to break out of its slump.

The Clippers look to end a three-game losing streak while dealing the New Orleans Hornets an eighth straight defeat Monday night.

After knocking off San Antonio for its sixth consecutive win to start its trip, Los Angeles dropped the final three games, including Saturday's 104-93 loss at Atlanta.

Blake Griffin totaled 22 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists while Paul finished with 19 points and seven assists for the Clippers (8-5), who lost three straight just once all of last season.

"It's a terrible road trip for us, especially with all of them being winnable games," Paul said. "I think what we've learned from it is that it's not as easy as it looks."

Los Angeles' vaunted bench also was held in check over the last two games, scoring 24 points in Friday's loss to Brooklyn and 34 on Saturday while shooting a combined 36.5 percent over those contests.

The Clippers' average of 40.0 points from their reserves ranks fourth in the league.

Jamal Crawford, the team's leading scorer and sixth man, scored 12 points Saturday and is shooting 35.8 percent over his last four games. Paul said the Clippers can't always rely on their reserves to pick up the slack.

"That's unusual for us because usually our first team is the one that gets jumped on and it's our bench that brings us back into the game," Paul told the team's official website. "It's a long season. The bench can't bail us out every night."

Paul, who spent his first six seasons with the Hornets, did his own damage in three games against his former team last season, averaging 24.7 points and 10.7 assists as the Clippers won the last two meetings at home.

He scored 33 points, dished out 13 assists and had eight steals in Los Angeles' 107-98 win in the last matchup April 22.

New Orleans' rebuilding effort has gotten tougher with the absences of former Clipper Eric Gordon - who came over in the Paul trade - and No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis, who has missed four consecutive games with a stress reaction in his left ankle and six overall due to injury.

Davis could possibly be out until January, which doesn't bode well for the Hornets (3-9), whose skid reached seven after a 102-84 loss Sunday at Denver.

Brian Roberts scored a team-high 17 points off the bench while Ryan Anderson added 16.

Rookie Austin Rivers, shooting just 29.6 percent, finished 2 for 10 from the field and scored five points.

"We are having problems right now," said Greivis Vasquez, who scored six points after netting a career-high 25 in Friday's loss to Phoenix. "We are just embarrassed."

New Orleans, which concludes its four-game road trip Monday, shot 38.8 percent and committed 14 turnovers, including six by Vasquez.

"The NBA is a cruel league," coach Monty Williams said. "They try to embarrass you every night and that's what you saw (Sunday)."

The Paul-led Hornets won 15 of the previous 16 matchups before dealing the point guard to the Clippers prior to last season.
