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.
MINNESOTA: GUARDS: RICKY RUBIO could be back by late December, but even he's not confident his knee will be 100 percent. His minutes might have to be scaled back . . . LUKE RIDNOUR will handle the offense with Rubio hampered. The vet is a steady hand in coach Rick Adelman's Euro-style offense . . . They're counting on BRANDON ROY to reclaim his old form after a radical knee procedure. He may never be 100 percent, but he should at least give them sixth-man minutes . . . CHASE BUDINGER is a three-point marksman who moves well off the ball, a perfect fit in Adelman's system . . . J.J. BAREA will take some of the point guard burden as well. He's a top sixth man . . . ALEXEY SHVED can help as a combo guard, though he might have trouble breaking into this rotation . . . MALCOLM LEE is a defensive stopper who won't be asked to shoot very often. FORWARDS: Despite being limited athletically, KEVIN LOVE is an elite rebounder and shooter for a big. He'll continue to be the focal point of this offense once he returns from a broken hand in early December . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO returns to the States after a dominating Euroleague stint. He's a big upgrade at the three and should be comfortable in Adelman's system . . . DERRICK WILLIAMS will continue his attempted transition to the three. As last year proved, he's a long, long ways away. He might have to play himself into a rotation spot . . . DANTE CUNNINGHAM is a nice, efficient big to bring off the bench . . . Since they need shooting on the wings, rookie ROBBIE HUMMEL has a chance to crack the rotation. CENTERS: NIKOLA PEKOVIC is a beast, the best offensive rebounder in the NBA. His total rebounding numbers get hurt playing alongside Kevin Love, but Pekovic will continue to bully his way to put-backs . . . GREG STIEMSMA is going to come in and do some pushing and shoving (and occasional shot-blocking) for 12-to-15 MPG.

*Nets-Timberwolves Preview* ===========================


Brooklyn (25-16) at Minnesota (17-21), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Given Brooklyn's success this month and Minnesota's lengthy rough stretch, the Nets may have a good chance to end their road struggles against the Timberwolves.

Looking for a third consecutive victory overall, the Nets try to avoid a ninth straight road loss to the Timberwolves on Wednesday night.

A winner of 11 of 13, Brooklyn (25-16) improved to 9-1 in January with an 88-85 win at New York at on Monday. Joe Johnson scored 25 points and hit the go-ahead jumper with 22 seconds left to help the Nets move within a game of the Atlantic Division-leading Knicks.

"It's a confidence booster for us," Johnson said. "It just goes to show we've come a long way and we're still trying to get better."

Brooklyn averaged 83.5 points while shooting 40.0 percent during a four-game road skid to end December. While winning four of five away from home in January, the Nets have put up 103.4 and shot 45.7 percent. Johnson has averaged 21.2 points in those five contests.

The Nets hope that success continues with a visit to Minnesota, where they are 4-17 all-time and have averaged 87.8 points during an eight-game slide that dates to Nov. 23, 2002. Brooklyn has lost two in a row and six of seven overall to the Timberwolves after a 107-96 loss Nov. 5.

Johnson scored 19 and Deron Williams added 18 points and 13 assists, but the Timberwolves (17-21) made half of their field-goal attempts for the game and outscored the hosts 32-10 in the fourth quarter.

Though Minnesota won that game without stars Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio, the Timberwolves could have a difficult time continuing their series success Wednesday. Love will miss his 10th straight game, guard Malcolm Lee and forward Chase Budinger are also out and center Nikola Pekovic and rookie Alexey Shved could both sit for a third consecutive contest.

"We can't afford to lose anybody else," forward Derrick Williams said. "There are people playing with injuries."

The Timberwolves have gone 5-12 in their last 17, and they've averaged 89.6 points and allowed 100.3 while dropping six of seven. Minnesota blew an 18-point second-quarter lead and allowed Atlanta to shoot 57.7 percent in a 104-96 road loss Monday.

The Hawks outscored the Timberwolves 60-38 in the second half and went on a 35-17 run that spanned portions of the second and third quarters.

Minnesota averages an NBA-low 21.7 points in the third quarter, with Brooklyn at 22.1. The Timberwolves, however, have been outscored in that period in each of the last 12 games.

"Like I've been saying all year, the third quarter has been killing us," said Williams, who had eight points and shot 3 of 12 versus Brooklyn in November. "As long as we pick it up in that quarter I think we can win more games."

Minnesota is 2-6 under assistant Terry Porter, who continues to coach the team while Rick Adelman cares for his sick wife. It's possible Adelman could return to the team this week.
