KEY GAME INFORMATION
HOUSTON: GUARDS: Houston has gutted its roster, and this is JEREMY LIN's team now. Coach Kevin McHale will use the same pick-and-roll offense he used with Goran Dragic, and Lin should do what he did in New York a year ago . . . KEVIN MARTIN is on the trade block. As long as he's in Houston, he'll be in and out of McHale's doghouse, especially seeing that he's not in the long-term plans . . . JEREMY LAMB should push Martin for minutes early. Lamb will have some defensive issues, but he's a cagey scorer who should mesh well with Lin . . . CARLOS DELFINO replaces Chase Budinger as the team's most reliable marksman from three-point range . . . TONEY DOUGLAS' defensive ability puts him in the running for a rotation spot . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON can give them 12 to 15 minutes a night . . . Rookie SCOTT MACHADO, an outstanding passer, will back up Lin . . . GARY FORBES will have trouble finding minutes. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS was a nice surprise a year ago. He's a fifth option offensively but does the hustle/energy thing well . . . 2011 first-rounder DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS is a skilled 7-footer who fits with Lin. Expect him to grab a starting job by midseason, but he can also play center when required . . . This might be the year PATRICK PATTERSON makes an impact. His game is limited, but he can rebound and score around the basket . . . ROYCE WHITE is a 270-pounder with point guard skills. He needs the ball in his hands though, which is why he's not a great fit with Lin in the starting lineup . . . TERRENCE JONES has a tweener skill set. At this point, he's better suited for the second unit . . . Speaking of 'tweeners, MARCUS MORRIS looks to be nowhere near contributing. CENTERS: OMER ASIK earned his reputation as a defensive stud in Chicago, and he'll get a little more offensive freedom in Houston. He is quite foul-prone though, and he'll be tested on the free-throw line early and often . . . His backup, GREG SMITH, has more fouls (17) than points (14) in his 69-minute NBA career.
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.

*Rockets-Nuggets Preview* =========================

By MATT BEARDMORE STATS Writer

Houston (25-22) at Denver (28-18), 9:00 p.m. EDT

Scoring at a high rate is nothing new for the Denver Nuggets and Houston Rockets, but their production during their respective winning streaks has jumped even higher.

Both teams have also improved on the defensive end.

Denver goes for a fifth straight victory overall and sixth in a row in this series Wednesday night when they host the Rockets, who will try to remain undefeated since last week's home loss to the Nuggets.

Fourth in the NBA with 103.5 points per game - Houston ranks second with 104.9 - Denver is averaging 112.3 since its last defeat.

The Nuggets (28-18) have also forced an average of 21.2 turnovers during their four-game run, while holding their last three opponents to 96.3 points per game after allowing at least 105 in seven of the previous eight contests.

That strong defensive stretch started last Wednesday when Denver forced 23 turnovers in a 105-95 win at Houston (25-22).

Nuggets guard Andre Iguodala came up big on both ends Monday, making a defensive stop in the closing seconds then hitting a winning free throw with 0.7 seconds left in a 102-101 victory over Indiana.

Denver improved to 18-3 at home and 11-3 in January.

"We're having a good month," point guard Ty Lawson told the Nuggets' official website. "I feel like if we would have lost this game (after leading by 14 in the fourth quarter), we would have taken it hard. I'm glad we got the win - momentum is going to be good for us."

The Rockets also have momentum as they come to Denver. Since losing its fourth straight at home to the Nuggets last week, Houston has won three in a row and averaged 122.0 points in the last two.

It has a 73-18 edge in fast-break points during those three games after outscoring Utah 26-2 in that category in a 125-80 road victory Monday.

"That's how we play," guard James Harden said. "If you watch Rockets basketball, you know we get out in transition and we get some stops. We just try to do a good job of that for 48 minutes."

The Rockets also committed a season-low six turnovers - 10.4 less that their league-worst average.

That performance was Houston's third straight strong effort at the defensive end. The Rockets are giving up 102.4 points a contest on the season, but they've allowed 89.3 along with 41.1 percent shooting in this stretch.

Iguodala and the Nuggets have done a nice job on Harden, limiting the first-time All-Star to 38 total points in two meetings this season. Harden, who averages 26.0, had 15 and shot 5 of 15 in a 93-87 loss to Denver on Nov. 7.

Danilo Gallinari had 27 points Monday as Denver won its seventh straight game in which he's led the team in scoring.

The Nuggets might need another strong game from Gallinari, as well as the rest of their frontcourt, if JaVale McGee and Wilson Chandler miss a second straight contest. McGee had 14 points last Wednesday while Chandler scored a season-best 20.

Denver won 101-86 on April 15 to avoid a third consecutive home loss to Houston. The Nuggets haven't won six straight in this series since taking the first seven matchups Jan. 7, 1977-Oct. 29, 1978.
