KEY GAME INFORMATION
DALLAS: GUARDS: DARREN COLLISON's jump shot might be shaky, but he can get into the lane at will. He'll be a much different look than Jason Kidd had been in Big D . . . O.J. MAYO becomes the second option in this offense. He'll have the ball in his hands a lot . . . VINCE CARTER will come off the bench. At this point, he's a three-point specialist, and not a very good one . . . DELONTE WEST will back up both guard spots. Don't be surprised if he overtakes Collison at some point . . . RODDY BEAUBOIS can heat up in an instant, but he has work to do to make this rotation . . . DAHNTAY JONES is roster filler . . . DOMINIQUE JONES enters the year on the roster bubble . . . JARED CUNNINGHAM will learn the point guard position watching from the bench as a rookie. FORWARDS: After a slow start last season, DIRK NOWITZKI looked like the Dirk of old in the second half of the year. He's still got something left in the tank, but it's still unclear if the swelling in his knee will require surgery, something that would shelve him for more than a month . . . SHAWN MARION is still an important cog in Carlisle's creative defensive gameplans, so he'll keep playing big minutes despite his dwindling offensive skills . . . ELTON BRAND is still relevant, even behind Nowitzki, because of his ability to play some center . . . BRANDAN WRIGHT will be in and out of the rotation again, but he's now relatively healthy and showed signs of being a serviceable rotation player a year ago . . . Rookie Jae CROWDER profiles as a potentially solid second-unit player, but he'll be buried on this depth chart. CENTERS: CHRIS KAMAN gives Dallas some offensive skill at center, but he's not exactly the defensive presence they've needed. He'll log the bulk of the minutes here, but there are going to be a handful of games where the Mavs have to sit him and go small for defensive purposes . . . 27-year-old rookie BERNARD JAMES could fill Ian Mahinmi's old role of a shot-blocker/fouler 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.

*Mavericks-Clippers Preview* ============================

By SANTOSH VENKATARAMAN STATS Senior Writer

Dallas (8-9) at Los Angeles (11-6), 10:30 p.m. EDT

Not only will the Dallas Mavericks be bringing some former Los Angeles Clippers into this matchup, they'll see some familiar faces as well.

The Clippers can stretch their win streak to four Wednesday night and hand the Mavericks a third straight road loss.

Dallas (8-9) features a pair of former Clippers big men in Elton Brand and Chris Kaman. While Brand has faced Los Angeles (11-6) six times since leaving the club following the 2007-08 season, this will be Kaman's first road game against the team he spent his first eight seasons with before being traded to New Orleans in the blockbuster deal that brought Chris Paul to the Clippers before last season.

Kaman is fifth on the franchise's all-time list in games (493) and rebounds (4,109), while Brand is first in rebounds (4,710) and sixth in games (459).

Dallas will see Lamar Odom for the first time since sending him to Los Angeles this offseason in a four-team trade. Odom averaged career lows of 6.6 points and 4.2 rebounds in a tumultuous 50-game stint for the Mavericks last season during which he had an argument with owner Mark Cuban in a 94-89 loss at Memphis on April 7.

The Mavs probably have warmer feelings toward reserve forward Caron Butler, who is in his second season with Los Angeles after signing as a free agent following an injury-plagued tenure with Dallas. Butler earned a championship ring with the Mavs in 2010-11.

One Dallas player looking forward to this contest is top scorer O.J. Mayo, averaging 20.2 points. This is Mayo's first game against the Clippers since last year's playoffs when he played for the Grizzlies in a seven-game, first-round series loss to Los Angeles.

"It just makes me want to go that much harder, obviously," Mayo said. "You remember those games, those losses. You remember Game 7."

The Clippers trailed by as many as 14 points before rallying for Monday's 105-104 victory at Utah. Blake Griffin had 30 points and 11 rebounds and Jamal Crawford added 20 points off the bench.

"In the first half, it was almost a waste of time because no one showed up," coach Vinny Del Negro said. "Our defense was weak, we were soft and we had no toughness. ... But I was very pleased with the way we responded ... and made plays down the stretch."

The Clippers scored 25 points off 17 turnovers. They lead the Western Conference in forcing 18.4 turnovers per game.

Dallas coach Rick Carlisle has warned his team of that while also noting that the Clippers are allowing an average of 26.1 free throw attempts for one of the NBA's worst marks.

"We've got to be good with the ball, they're great at forcing turnovers and we've got to be aggressive and get to the free-throw line," Carlisle said. "They're a team that fouls."

Carlisle's team also fouls a lot, yielding a league-worst 27.9 free throws per game.

The Mavs will also have to be wary of Paul, who is averaging 21.8 points against them in the regular season for his third-highest mark versus any opponent.

Dallas is starting a three-game trip after ending a three-game slide with Saturday's 92-77 victory over Detroit behind Mayo's 27 points.
