DENVER: GUARDS: TY LAWSON has emerged as the closest thing to a No. 1 option on this team, and despite his size, he's proven capable of playing full-time minutes. He'll continue to post big numbers in an up-tempo system that suits him perfectly . . . ANDRE MILLER will both back up Lawson and share the court with him at times (though Andre Iguodala figures to play a lot of two this season). The steady veteran is one of the league's most underrated sixth men . . . It's a bit surprising that EVAN FOURNIER is making the jump to the NBA this year. His size and skill combo will be nice on the wing one day, but he's unlikely to contribute this year . . . JULYAN STONE will be out until January after offseason hip surgery, but he should be Lawson's main backup upon his return. FORWARDS: DANILO GALLINARI is their most complete offensive player. If healthy, he's capable of being a 20-PPG scorer . . . ANDRE IGUODALA should enjoy the much faster pace Denver plays at. He'll see full-time minutes between both wing spots . . . KENNETH FARIED isn't a skilled big, but he's a high-energy guy who can get his own points off offensive rebounds . . . WILSON CHANDLER could end up leading their second unit in minutes and points . . . COREY BREWER is a front office favorite. He'll stay in the rotation as a defensive presence/glue guy . . . JORDAN HAMILTON could break into the rotation. He's one-dimensional, but has the offensive skills . . . Denver will try to solve the ANTHONY RANDOLPH riddle. Don't expect it to happen this year. CENTERS: Denver is all-in on internet punchline JaVALE McGEE. They'll give the athletic 7-footer every chance to become the star they think he can be. Whether the flaky McGee can capitalize is questionable . . . TIMOFEY MOZGOV is one of the NBA's best screeners, but his touches will be limited . . . KOSTA KOUFOS has quietly developed into a usable rotation player, but he might be squeezed out of minutes.
OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK can do whatever he wants inside the arc and will continue to be a shoot-first point guard . . . JAMES HARDEN will likely keep coming off the bench, but he'll also keep playing starter's minutes . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA is OKC's best perimeter defender. But his role won't become more prominent until the postseason . . . ERIC MAYNOR should be just about all the way back from his torn ACL. When healthy, he's one of the league's best backup point guards . . . DAEQUAN COOK will see limited minutes as a three-point specialist . . . REGGIE JACKSON's role will shrink to near nothing if Maynor is healthy. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT continues to do it all, and has done nothing but steadily improve each season . . . SERGE IBAKA is obviously an elite shot-blocker, but he continues to get lost in space. He's made some strides as a pick-and-roll defender, but that weakness is why he doesn't play 30 minutes per night . . . NICK COLLISON will continue to steal a lot of Ibaka's minutes because he defends the pick-and-roll better, and because he draws so many charges, he's almost as good in help situations . . . PERRY JONES III is an incredible athlete, but needs a year or two to learn the game . . . LAZAR HAYWARD is back as a 12th man. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS will continue to start, but is a part-time player. The Thunder are often better with a small lineup. While Perkins is a bruiser he is too easy to exploit as a defender in space . . . COLE ALDRICH could be ready for a slightly bigger role off the bench . . . HASHEEM THABEET is a reclamation project. There's a sliver of long-term hope, but he won't help this year.

*Nuggets-Thunder Preview* =========================


Denver (24-16) at Oklahoma City (30-8), 8:00 p.m. EDT

When two of the NBA's hottest teams meet Wednesday night in Oklahoma City, one thing seems like a certainty: a lot of points.

The Thunder look for their fifth straight win and 10th in 12 games as they face the Denver Nuggets, who put their season-high six-game winning streak on the line.

Both clubs rank near the top of the league in scoring with Oklahoma City at 105.1 points per game and Denver at 102.7.

Oklahoma City leads the NBA with a 30-8 record and has won 14 of 15 at Chesapeake Energy Arena, averaging 109.3 points in that stretch. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook carried the offense in a 102-90 road win against Phoenix on Monday, with the duo scoring 47 of the team's 51 second-half points.

"You don't see that often, two guys just take over the game offensively in that second half," coach Scott Brooks said. "You can't say anything other than just make sure you set good screens and make sure you execute and run the plays. ... We have a couple of sets that we run where we look for opportunities to get quick baskets. They ran it to perfection."

Durant, who had 27 of his game-high 41 points after the break, is shooting 56.1 percent in eight games this month. He averaged 35.7 points on 59.1 percent shooting in three games against Denver last season, scoring a career-high 51 in a 124-118 overtime win against the Nuggets on Feb. 19.

The Thunder defense has also been stronger recently, limiting opponents to 90.9 points per game on 41.2 percent shooting over the last seven contests. The last two foes combined to shoot 38.8 percent despite Serge Ibaka being out with a chest contusion.

Ibaka, Oklahoma City's leading rebounder (8.4) and shot-blocker (2.8), is day to day.

"It's not a secret," center Kendrick Perkins said. "We're a defensive team first and we're going to keep building on that. Our goal is, every game, we have to keep the team under 40 percent. We're just trying to start off the defensive end. We know we're going to score points. We just have to keep our 'D' up."

That could be a challenge against Denver (24-16), which needed overtime to extend its win streak Tuesday against Portland. A 3-pointer from Wilson Chandler with 14.9 seconds left in the extra session put the Nuggets ahead for good in a 115-111 win.

It was only Chandler's second game back after he missed two months with a hip injury. A labral tear in his left hip was surgically repaired in the spring, but the pain returned in November.

"The way the game was going for me, I was a little fatigued," said Chandler, who has 27 points in 40 minutes of action since returning. "I had a little muscle fatigue, so I was kind of struggling throughout the game. So to come in and hit a shot like that is big."

Point guard Ty Lawson, who had 24 points and 12 assists against Portland, continues to run the offense effectively and owns a 4.3 assist-to-turnover ratio over his last five games.

"I was trying to attack, and when I attack, it brings assists because people have to double me or come over and help," Lawson said.

The Nuggets are averaging 109.8 points during their six-game winning streak, though all but one of those games were played in Denver, where they are 15-2.

They've been far less consistent on the road, but they won their last trip to Oklahoma City 106-101 on April 25 despite a combined 62 points from Durant and Westbrook.
