BROOKLYN: GUARDS: DERON WILLIAMS is healthy and got a much-improved supporting cast to work with. He could re-enter the NBA's best point guard discussion . . . JOE JOHNSON won't have the ballin his hands as much as he used to in Atlanta. It might give him a chance to concentrate on regaining his stroke as one of the NBA's best shooters . . . MARSHON BROOKS will look to settle in as a high-scoring sixth man. He'll be trade bait for most of the season . . . After a disastrous year in Chicago, C.J. WATSON will be asked to spell Williams for a few minutes a night . . . KEITH BOGANS is still kicking around as a second unit glue guy . . . TYSHAWN TAYLOR is an at-times out-of-control combo guard, but the rookie could threaten Watson's role at some point. FORWARDS: KRIS HUMPHRIES' contract was structured to make him easier to trade. He'll rebound and get his put-backs, and the Nets will likely showcase him a bit . . . GERALD WALLACE is slowing down, and now that he's signed his last big NBA contract he might not have much incentive to live up to his 'Crash' nickname. Brooklyn has no choice but to give him heavy minutes considering their investment . . . MIRZA TELETOVIC is a veteran stretch four. Consider him a penniless man's Channing Frye . . . TORNIKE SHENGELIA played himself into a roster spot this summer. He's a mediocre athlete, but a cagey scorer with a high basketball IQ . . . JOSH CHILDRESS and JERRY STACKHOUSE were added in September for depth . . . REGGIE EVANS will flop unconvincingly, punch opponents in the jewels and bring other 'tough guy' intangibles. CENTERS: BROOK LOPEZ had been remarkably durable before last year's foot injury, and he should be fully healed by the start of training camp. He's gifted offensively, but will continue to grab relatively few rebounds and generally get fried defensively. He's also a candidate to be traded midseason if another franchise can stomach his max contract . . . As insurance, former Wizards big man ANDRAY BLATCHE was brought in. He could be the team's best interior defender, able to play either the four or five spot.
SAN ANTONIO: GUARDS: TONY PARKER played at an MVP level last year. His eye injury is obviously not an issue, and he was constantly getting on coach Gregg Popovich to let him finish meaningless games last year. There's no reason he can't repeat last year's performance . . . MANU GINOBILI dealt with a series of nagging injuries last year, and it's clear the team will have to monitor his regular-season workload . . . GARY NEAL provides solid minutes in this rotation, mostly at the point, and is able to consistently knock down threes . . . DANNY GREEN's rotation spot is in a bit of peril. He was too much of an offensive liability in last year's Western Conference Finals . . . NANDO de COLO is a combo guard who can provide instant offense off the bench. He can shoot it and does a nice job getting to the line . . . PATTY MILLS steps in as another viable option in this loaded backcourt . . . CORY JOSEPH's roster spot is in jeopardy after a middling D-League season. FORWARDS: TIM DUNCAN will continue to save it up for the playoffs. He still has plenty left in the tank, but he'll get tons of rest in March and April and more and more often defers to Tony Parker on offense when he does play . . . There's plenty to like about KAWHI LEONARD, who proved to be useful on both ends of the court last season. He'll be asked to be a little more aggressive offensively this year and should even have a couple of sets designed for him . . . STEPHEN JACKSON was a bit of a disaster in Milwaukee before landing with the Spurs last year. He's another veteran who will be paced during the regular season. And while he's been a facilitator in the past, he's really just a catch-and-shoot guy in San Antonio . . . MATT BONNER will continue to come off the bench and hoist some threes. CENTERS: BORIS DIAW's pick-and-pop ability makes him Popovich's top choice in the center rotation . . . TIAGO SPLITTER looks to be a career second-unit guy. He works hard and can defend, but he's just too clunky on the offensive end . . . DeJUAN BLAIR can pick up some cheap baskets, but his lack of offensive skills and defensive size makes him a fringe rotation player.

*Nets-Spurs Preview* ====================


Brooklyn (16-14) at San Antonio (23-8), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Brooklyn Nets haven't lost since P.J. Carlesimo took over as interim coach, but the competition is about to get much tougher.

After dispatching a pair of lowly foes, the Nets open a daunting stretch trying to earn a rare victory over the surging San Antonio Spurs, who will seek a season-high sixth consecutive win.

After losing 10 of its first 13 games this month, Brooklyn (16-14) fired Avery Johnson on Thursday and promoted Carlesimo, who has more than 200 wins as an NBA head coach.

The Nets have responded well since the change with a 97-81 win over Charlotte on Friday and a 103-100 victory over Cleveland the next day.

Brook Lopez had a season-high 35 points and 11 rebounds against the Cavaliers, and is averaging 27.3 on 62.0 percent shooting over the last three games. The center averaged 14.7 points on 42.2 percent shooting in his first six games back from a sprained right foot.

"This can start something, so for us to get these two wins, we've got a little confidence going on the road," swingman Joe Johnson said. "We'll ride this confidence into San Antonio and try to get us another win."

After facing two seven-win teams at home, the Nets will open a three-game road trip against a pair of division leaders, San Antonio (24-8) and Oklahoma City (23-6). Carlesimo was a former assistant to Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and led the Thunder for 13 games in 2008-09, going 1-12.

In the first of those reunions, Carlesimo and the Nets will face a Spurs team that has outscored its last four opponents by an average of 22.2 points. In Sunday's 111-86 win over Dallas, Tony Parker had a team-best 21 points and Manu Ginobili contributed 20 off the bench as San Antonio shot 50.6 percent.

"I liked the focus of this team," Parker said. "From the get-go, we moved the ball, took good shots and played great defense."

When it returns from Dallas, San Antonio will try to secure a ninth consecutive win at the AT&T Center and its 10th straight home victory over the Nets, including the postseason. Brooklyn's last road win over the Spurs was on June 6, 2003, in Game 2 of the NBA finals.

San Antonio has also prevailed in 17 of the last 18 regular-season matchups, and took a 103-89 victory in the lone meeting last season on Feb. 11.

The Nets' Deron Williams had 27 points in that home game, but only three others reached double digits in a 40.2-percent shooting performance. The Spurs, meanwhile, shot 52.5 percent and had six players in double figures.

Lopez missed that game because of an injured right foot but his presence might not have made too much of a difference. He's been held to a combined 24 points on 34.5 percent shooting (10 of 29) in his past two matchups.

Williams, a former high school star in Texas, is averaging 25.8 points in his last four games against the Spurs.

San Antonio starting guard Gary Neal, who scored a team-best 18 points in last season's meeting, has missed the past three games because of a strained right calf.
