TORONTO: GUARDS: KYLE LOWRY is healthy again and will be handed the reigns. He could be the Raptors best player on both ends of the floor . . . As of now, JOSE CALDERON is still on the roster, but he's not long for Toronto with Lowry's arrival. He won't start over Lowry, but he could see decent minutes as the Raptors attempt to showcase him . . . With Toronto's influx of new talent, DeMAR DeROZAN could be marginalized on the offensive end. He hasn't really progressed past the dunker/raw athlete stage of his career . . . Rookie TERRENCE ROSS can just about match DeRozan's athleticism, and while he has no handle, he's a potentially deadly three-point threat . . . JOHN LUCAS III will back up both guard spots . . . ALAN ANDERSON returns as a defensive stopper in the second unit. FORWARDS: ANDREA BARGNANI makes his triumphant return and will likely go back to the perimeter. The Raptors have beefed up in the middle so Bargnani can play outside more . . . LANDRY FIELDS plays enough defense to earn minutes, but it seems like his signing was more a result of Toronto playing cap games to try to land Steve Nash. He'll likely platoon with Terrence Ross . . . ED DAVIS made some strides this offseason, but he's still not where the Raptors want him to be on the offensive end . . . LINAS KLEIZA's knee should be in better shape this season. The Raptors want more shooting, and he has a chance to grab a bigger role . . . Toronto will do everything it can to get out from under AMIR JOHNSON's contract . . . DOMINIC McGUIRE figures to occupy the final seat on the Raptors bench. CENTERS: JONAS VALANCIUNAS would have been the No. 2 pick of the draft had he come out a year later. He's a wiry, strong athlete who's physical down low with soft touch out to 10 feet. Toronto sees him as a franchise cornerstone who meshes nicely with Bargnani . . . AARON GRAY should provide ample competition for the starting center job.
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.

*Raptors-Clippers Preview* ==========================


Toronto (4-16) at Los Angeles (12-6), 3:30 p.m. EDT

The Los Angeles Clippers' starters haven't always performed up to par recently.

It hasn't mattered thanks to their bench.

The surging Clippers seek their sixth straight win on Sunday at the expense of the Toronto Raptors, whom they've beaten 12 consecutive times.

Los Angeles (13-6) has assembled a group of skilled scorers that extends beyond its first five. During the Clippers' five-game win streak, the starters are averaging 62.0 points compared to 59.6 for the opponents' starters, and the team has totaled at least 100 in each game.

The big advantage comes from their reserves, who have averaged 48.2 points during this run and outscored their counterparts by 14.0 per game. That group again came through on Friday when Jamal Crawford scored 21 off the bench and the Clippers won 117-99 over Phoenix.

They couldn't build a lead of more than seven points until the fourth quarter, when the reserves keyed a 17-4 run to blow open the game.

Thirteen of Crawford's points came in the fourth and he hit all four of his free throws, extending his streak to 55 consecutive made free throws dating back to Nov. 3.

The Clippers' bench is averaging 40.7 points - one of the NBA's best marks.

"We owed them a lot," Blake Griffin said of the reserves. Griffin finished with 24 points and a career-high four steals.

"We want to put it away early, but with the way that our team is put together, our second team is just as capable of coming and putting that lead on teams."

More impressive is that Los Angeles' rotation isn't at full strength. Lamar Odom continues to get into shape, having recently lost 12 pounds. He tallied eight points and eight rebounds in 20 minutes of action on Friday.

Chauncey Billups has missed two straight games with an inflamed tendon in his left foot. He already missed the season's first 14 games because of the torn left Achilles he suffered on Feb. 6, and the Clippers are uncertain when he will return.

"It's frustrating, of course, working that hard to come back and have to kind of sit back and wait," Billups told the team's official website. "I know what it is. I respect the process and I'm not down at all."

The Raptors (4-16) have struggled all season, particularly on the road where they're 1-12. Their 131-99 loss at Utah on Friday was their third straight and ninth in 10 games.

The Clippers high-scoring attack (102.3 ppg) could give Toronto all sorts of problems. The Raptors are at the bottom of the league, giving up 103.6 ppg.

They allowed the Jazz to hit 13 of their 23 3-point attempts on Friday, and opponents are hitting 39.5 percent from beyond the arc.

"We gave in to the altitude or whatever it was," coach Dwane Casey said. "I thought we split apart and didn't stay together. Tonight is the first time I have seen us give in."

Los Angeles won last year's meeting, 103-91.
