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.
UTAH: GUARDS: MO WILLIAMS will get a crack at running the point in Utah. He's more of a combo guard, but he'll do fine in an offense that revolves around the bigs . . . RANDY FOYE is a gunning combo guard who will step in as Utah's sixth man . . . ALEC BURKS started to come on late last year, making Raja Bell expendable. He'll come off the bench, but if he can start knocking down perimeter shots, he's in for a much bigger role . . . Yeah, that's right, EARL WATSON and JAMAAL TINSLEY are both still around. And they're both riding pine in Salt Lake . . . KEVIN MURPHY is a cagey scorer from tiny Tennessee Tech (no word on his Golden Tee skills). FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was Utah's best all-around player last season and will be playing for a new contract. He should be able to keep his minutes despite Utah's young bigs behind him . . . GORDON HAYWARD will probably slide to the two. He has a chance for a breakout year after a strong finish to 2011-12 . . . MARVIN WILLIAMS gets a fresh start in Utah after a disappointing run in Atlanta. He figures to have a similar complementary role with the Jazz . . . DERRICK FAVORS is a long-term solution in the frontcourt. His offensive game is coming on, and he's already a far better defender than Al Jefferson . . . Slam dunk champion JEREMY EVANS and DeMARRE CARROLL will both provide energy off the bench. CENTERS: Like Millsap, AL JEFFERSON will hit free agency after the season. He's an incredibly limited player, a great scorer in the low post, but incapable of any other contributions and a huge liability on defense . . . ENES KANTER is still a few years away from a starting job. He has some rough edges to his game, but really had no problem adjusting to the physicality of the NBA.

*Clippers-Jazz Preview* =======================


Los Angeles (23-6) at Utah (15-15), 9:00 p.m. EDT

Another game for the Los Angeles Clippers means another opportunity to continue writing history.

The Clippers can extend their franchise-best winning streak to 16 games on Friday night as they head to Salt Lake City to play the Utah Jazz, where they had lost 16 in a row before winning the last two contests, including one earlier this month.

Los Angeles' streak is the league's longest since San Antonio ran off 15 straight into the playoffs last season. Another win would make it the best run since Boston won 19 consecutive games in 2008-09.

The Clippers were just 8-6 after Nov. 26 - the date of their last loss, a 105-98 defeat against New Orleans. They have since become the owners of the NBA's best record (23-6), which was improved with Thursday's 106-77 home win against the Celtics - Boston's worst loss of the season.

"Some people may be impressed by the record, but we can't be," Chris Paul said. "We're not measured by our regular-season wins."

Blake Griffin agreed, saying, "We want to be winning in April, May and June."

Considering the fashion in which the Clippers have been beating teams - badly - the streak might not end for a while. Los Angeles is winning by an average of 16.3 points during its run while shooting 48.4 percent from the floor.

The Clippers are also succeeding with arguably the NBA's best depth. They own the league's best scoring bench at 43.1 points per game.

The reserves didn't let up on Thursday, with Matt Barnes and Jamal Crawford leading the team in scoring with 21 and 17 points, respectively.

DeAndre Jordan also credited the team's chemistry for allowing them to blend players as old as Lamar Odom (33) rather seamlessly in the rotation with some as young as Griffin (23).

"We have a mixture of some young guys, some guys in their prime and some veterans on this team," Jordan said. "We play well together on the court, but we are also close off the court and I think that helps our play. If we continue to stay close and everybody stays healthy we will be alright."

The Jazz (15-15), meanwhile, have stumbled recently, losing five of seven overall and their last two home games after starting 9-1 at EnergySolutions Arena.

Utah matched a season low in points with a 94-83 loss to Golden State on Wednesday and its offense seemed disrupted by the absence of point guard Mo Williams. Williams, averaging 12.9 points and 6.7 assists, missed his second straight game with a sprained right thumb and is out indefinitely.

Jamaal Tinsley has started the last two in his place, averaging 5.5 points and four assists.

"He (Williams) can attack the rim, take a shot, make a shot and we just didn't get that tonight," coach Tyrone Corbin said. "It was a sluggish effort all night."

Utah had beaten the Clippers in 11 of 12 before losing the last three games, including a 105-104 home loss on Dec. 3. Griffin posted 30 points and 11 rebounds while going 14 of 20 from the field.
