KEY GAME INFORMATION
LA LAKERS: GUARDS: Coach Mike Brown will reportedly turn the offensive gameplan over to STEVE NASH, but it's tough to picture a smooth transition after so many years of iso-heavy play in L.A. Don't be surprised if Nash has a tough adjustment . . . KOBE BRYANT will also have to learn to play with the ball out of his hands more often. He still figures to force some hold-and-wait basketball when he can . . . STEVE BLAKE will be in the old Derek Fisher role, coming off the bench to shoot corner threes . . . CHRIS DUHON and DARIUS MORRIS will battle for that No. 3 point guard spot . . . JODIE MEEKS will back up Bryant and provide some long-range shooting off the bench . . . The young guys, ANDREW GOUDELOCK and second-rounder DARIUS JOHNSON-ODOM, will bounce between the bench and the D-League. FORWARDS: If L.A. redesigns their offense to fit Nash, PAU GASOL should thrive. He's adjusted his game to fit with Kobe's iso play, but Gasol can make the passes and cuts to create quick buckets in a Euro-style offense . . . METTA WORLD PEACE looked done early last season but rebounded for a solid second half. He's a distant fifth option on offense, but can still defend . . . ANTAWN JAMISON will likely fill a sixth-man role. His skill set is too narrow to play a lot of minutes with the starters . . . JORDAN HILL is in the rotation. He did a nice job rebounding and clearing out space last year . . . DEVIN EBANKS figures to be bumped out of the rotation by Jamison. CENTERS: DWIGHT HOWARD's back remains a bit of a concern, and it wouldn't be a shock to see him sit out a handful of regular season games. But when he plays, he'll put up the same kind of monster production that he had in Orlando . . . ROBERT SACRE will be lucky to make the roster.
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.

*Lakers-Hornets Preview* ========================

By SANTOSH VENKATARAMAN STATS Senior Writer

Los Angeles (8-9) at New Orleans (5-11), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Los Angeles Lakers badly need a victory Wednesday night considering the location of the final stop of this week's road trip.

The Lakers will try to avoid their second three-game skid and could again be without Pau Gasol as they take on the New Orleans Hornets.

Los Angeles (8-10) led by as many as 17 points and was still up 13 in the fourth quarter before falling 107-105 at Houston on Tuesday to open a three-game trip.

After allowing 40 fourth-quarter points in Sunday's 113-103 defeat to Orlando, the Lakers gave up 34 in the final period against the Rockets. Dwight Howard did not have a shot attempt in the fourth Tuesday as Houston intentionally fouled him, and he made 8 of 16 free throws overall.

"People are going to say whatever they want to say, but at the end of the day, go back and look at the game," Howard said. "The reason we lost was not my free throws. That didn't lose us the game. Our defense was not there in the fourth quarter."

Gasol, averaging a career-low 12.6 points and 8.8 rebounds this season, is day to day after sitting out due to tendinitis in both knees. He said the condition has not improved since training camp.

"We just kept it under control and I was hoping that we would see some kind of improvement, and some kind of pain relief," he said. "But it hasn't happened."

Veteran Antawn Jamison had 15 points and nine rebounds in Gasol's place in the starting lineup Tuesday.

The Lakers have won seven straight regular-season meetings over the Hornets (5-11) as they try to improve upon a 1-2 mark in the second half of games on consecutive nights. This road trip ends Friday at Oklahoma City, with the NBA-leading Thunder on a six-game win streak.

New Orleans remains without top overall draft pick Anthony Davis, who has missed the last eight games with a left ankle injury.

The Hornets are continuing a five-game homestand in which they lost the first two games before cruising to Monday's 102-81 rout of Milwaukee. New Orleans turned in its second-best shooting performance at 52.4 percent and also its second-best effort in field-goal percentage defense at 38.2.

"We have to play hard and we have to defend," coach Monty Williams said. "When we defend like that, it gives us a chance to shoot easy buckets and that is how you get close to 50 percent (shooting). You're getting a lot of layups."

The Hornets know the rest of the week will be difficult with this homestand concluding Friday against Memphis before a trip to Miami the next day.

"With the next two games, which are big ones, we have to go out there with the same energy and use it in a positive way," rookie guard Austin Rivers said.

Rivers and the Hornets will try to slow down Kobe Bryant, averaging a league-best 27.9 points. Bryant scored 39 on Tuesday, with the Lakers falling to 1-7 when he nets at least 30.

Bryant is 13 points shy of becoming the fifth player in NBA history with 30,000.

Los Angeles is 3-5 under new coach Mike D'Antoni.
