KEY GAME INFORMATION
NEW ORLEANS: GUARDS: This offense will belong to ERIC GORDON. He'll get over the fact that the Hornets matched his offer from Phoenix, and as long as his surgically-repaired knee holds up, he's one of the most complete young scorers in the NBA . . . The Hornets reached for AUSTIN RIVERS with the 10th pick because Monty Williams wants to coach him and thinks he can be an NBA point guard. Rivers has the handle, but his athleticism is ordinary and, more importantly, he has never shown a PG mentality at any level . . . GREIVIS VASQUEZ is the closest thing to a true point guard on this roster. He'll see solid minutes assuming Rivers' adjustment is a tough one . . . Well-rounded ROGER MASON JR. will also provide point guard depth . . . XAVIER HENRY hasn't lived up to his reputation as a shooter, but the Hornets can be patient with him . . . Rookie BRIAN ROBERTS has had a strong enough preseason to likely earn a roster spot. FORWARDS: ANTHONY DAVIS should step right in as a starter. His offensive game is further along than he gets credit for, and on the defensive end he's an absolute force from the basket out to the perimeter . . . He'll probably miss having Dwight Howard drawing in defenses, but RYAN ANDERSON has always been a very good three-point shooter. He and Davis are unique enough talents to share the court even if they're both power forwards . . . AL-FAROUQ AMINU made some strides on the defensive end late last season, which is what will get him minutes under Williams. He's underwhelming on the offensive end . . . If HAKIM WARRICK couldn't succeed as Steve Nash's pick-and-roll partner, it seems unlikely he'll ever help in New Orleans . . . Rookie DARIUS MILLER is looking to establish some kind of role with the team . . . LANCE THOMAS is doubtful to earn a salary to pay off his jewelry debts. CENTERS: ROBIN LOPEZ has always had the ability to protect the rim and does a decent job in space. Look for him to end up grabbing the bulk of minutes in the middle . . . JASON SMITH gives the Hornets a more offensive-minded option off the bench.
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.

*Hornets-Timberwolves Preview* ==============================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

New Orleans (15-32) at Minnesota (17-26), 8:00 p.m. EDT

While the New Orleans Hornets haven't won much lately, their woes pale in comparison to those of their next opponent.

The Hornets, losers in five of six, will try to get heading back in the right direction by earning another road win over the sputtering Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night.

New Orleans (15-32) had won six of seven at one point last month, but its inability to contain opponents has hurt the team over the past three weeks. The Hornets have given up an average of 104.8 points while dropping six of eight.

They let Denver shoot 52.4 percent in a 113-98 defeat Friday, their third in a row, and that virtually negated a 52.8-percent performance at the other end of the floor. Ryan Anderson had 21 points off the bench but no other teammate scored more than 13.

Eric Gordon had nine points on 3-of-8 shooting after sitting out Wednesday's 104-99 defeat to Utah. It was a scheduled day off for Gordon, who missed New Orleans' first 29 games with right knee soreness and is currently not permitted to play in the second game of back-to-backs.

The Hornets also gave up 32 points on 22 turnovers Friday, their most in one game since a season-high 24 in a loss to Philadelphia on Nov. 7.

"The goal for is ... to get our minds right to play (Saturday) night," coach Monty Williams said. "We can't sweep this under the rug by any stretch. We have to understand that you can't turn the ball over against any team in the league that many times."

Gordon was one of six players in double figures with 16 points in a 104-92 victory over Minnesota on Jan. 11, and Greivis Vasquez had a team-best 18 points and 13 assists. Vasquez has 11 or more assists in six of his last eight games but just missed extending a three-game streak of double-digit performance Friday as he finished with nine.

The Hornets could use Vasquez's help to continue their recent success in Minnesota. They're 9-2 in their last 11 visits and have won the past two.

New Orleans has also prevailed in four of the last six overall matchups but lost 113-102 at home to the Timberwolves on Dec. 14. Nikola Pekovic had a career-high 31 points on 14-of-18 shooting and Andrei Kirilenko scored 21.

Minnesota, though, enters this game having lost 11 of 12 and a season-worst six in a row. The Timberwolves (17-26) have also matched another season high with three consecutive home defeats.

They cut a 29-point deficit to four with 5:55 remaining on Friday against the visiting Los Angeles Lakers, but would get no closer in a 111-100 defeat. In his second game back from a sprained ankle, Alexey Shved had a team-best 18 points and was one of five players in double figures.

"It's hard," point guard Ricky Rubio said. "We've been losing a lot. Even if we make the effort, sometimes it's not enough."

The Hornets are 1-3 on their five-game trip entering Saturday's finale, while the Timberwolves are 0-2 on their season-long six-game homestand.
