2/20/2013NEW YORK              
ATLANTA: GUARDS: GM Danny Ferry has really talked up JEFF TEAGUE, who will be more of a traditional point guard with Joe Johnson gone . . . DEVIN HARRIS is going to play plenty of minutes, both alongside Teague and off the bench . . . LOU WILLIAMS is a sixth man. He lacks the mentality to run the point and the size to guard opposing twos. His role will be similar to what it was in Philly . . . KYLE KORVER and ANTHONY MORROW are pure shooters who do little else. They can play the three in a pinch, and the hot hand will get the minutes . . . Coach Larry Drew could call on DeSHAWN STEVENSON for the occasional defense-heavy lineup. More likely, he'll rack up the DNP-CDs . . . JOHN JENKINS might be the best shooter in the rookie class, but he'll be buried on the depth chart. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH rescinded his trade demand, perhaps because he'll now be the focal point of the offense. He was more aggressive on both ends of the floor last year. As long as he resists the urge to float on the perimeter, he should emerge as an All-Star . . . Considering the makeup of this roster, Atlanta will utilize a lot of three-guard lineups. Korver and Morrow can stretch a defense from that third guard/small forward spot, with Stevenson stepping in as an agitator . . . After scoring double-figures six times in April, IVAN JOHNSON was re-signed to once again provide some muscle inside . . . Rookie MIKE SCOTT is polished after five years at Virginia, but doesn't have the athleticism to be an impact player . . . ANTHONY TOLLIVER is a defensive specialist with very little offense to contribute. CENTERS: AL HORFORD will get his wish to play more power forward this season, though he'll remain their primary option at center. He's healthy again and is one of the most consistent bigs in the NBA . . . ZAZA PACHULIA filled in admirably for Horford last year. But it's back to bench duty for the bruising big . . . JOHAN PETRO is French for "12th man."
INDIANA: GUARDS: The Pacers went 7-2 during the regular season and won a playoff series with GEORGE HILL in the starting five. He averaged 13.9 PPG and 5.3 APG in those regular season starts . . . PAUL GEORGE is a defensive stopper who is making strides on the offensive end. If he can find the touches, his scoring average will rise . . . D.J. AUGUSTIN has a skill set similar to Hill's. Maybe he'll push him for minutes later in the year, but more likely he'll shoot corner threes off the bench . . . GERALD GREEN is another athlete for their second unit . . . LANCE STEPHENSON has a chance for a bigger role, but he's been atrocious to this point of his career. FORWARDS: DANNY GRANGER's touches dropped last season, but his shot selection improved as last year went on. He'll continue to be a borderline All-Star . . . DAVID WEST's knee should be fully recovered from his torn ACL in late 2010-11. He was their best player in the postseason and should be a star this season with his ability to knock down shots . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH looks like he's settling in as a career second unit player. His lack of athleticism really limits his upside . . . JEFF PENDERGRAPH may or may not hold on to a roster spot in a 12th-man role. CENTERS: They're paying ROY HIBBERT like a franchise player, and he has the ability to control both ends of the court. The question is whether they'll now play him 30-plus minutes, or continue to use him as more of a part-time player . . . IAN MAHINMI should step in as a decent backup center . . . Rookie MILES PLUMLEE was a part-time player at Duke and is highly unlikely to contribute in his first season.

*Hawks-Pacers Preview* ======================


Atlanta (26-20) at Indiana (28-19), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Indiana Pacers failed in two chances this season to end a lengthy losing streak in Atlanta.

Hosting the Hawks could produce a different result.

The Pacers will go for their first 15-game home winning streak in 13 seasons and sole possession of the Central Division lead on Tuesday night when they continue the league's only back-to-back-to-back set this season.

With losses to Atlanta on Nov. 7 (89-86) and Dec. 29 (109-100), Indiana (29-19) has dropped 11 straight as the road team in this series and four in a row overall. The Hawks (26-20), though, are definitely not an overconfident group as they make their first of two visits to Bankers Life Fieldhouse this season.

"We've played some good games against them, and we've had some success, but we know that at home they're a totally different team," said center Al Horford, who is averaging a team-best 18.0 points with 7.5 rebounds against Indiana this season.

The Pacers have matched their longest home winning streak in 10 seasons after a 111-101 victory over Chicago on Monday helped them earn a share of the division lead with the Bulls. It was a make-up game from a Dec. 26 blizzard that hit Indianapolis, and it set up the first of three straight games for Indiana, which plays at Philadelphia on Wednesday.

"We're just playing together, every game I feel like we're playing sharper," said David West, who has totaled 59 points, 16 rebounds and nine assists in back-to-back wins over Eastern Conference-leading Miami and the Bulls.

The Pacers' last 15-game home winning streak was a 25-game run from Nov. 29-1999-March 9, 2000.

Indiana could move closer to that mark if it continues to clamp down on defense. The team is giving up 85.0 points per game on 40.5 percent shooting during its home winning streak.

That doesn't bode well for a Hawks team that's dropped seven of eight on the road and is coming off a 93-76 home loss to the Bulls on Saturday when it shot 39.2 percent.

"(The Pacers are) a really good defensive team, so it's going to be a grind-in-out game," point guard Jeff Teague said.

Indiana, though, has shown lately that it can pick up the pace. Among the league's lowest scoring teams with 92.4 points per game, the Pacers are averaging 104.4 over their last five.

And this is without Danny Granger, who could return before the All-Star break after being out all season with patellar tendinosis in his left knee.

"I'm proud of the way we're growing on the offensive end," coach Frank Vogel said. "Still a few too many turnovers (50 during their three-game winning streak), but we've made a commitment to the extra pass. When the ball is moving, we're too many weapons to be as poorly efficient as we have been."

The Pacers, though, continue to dominate the glass, outrebounding their opponents by 9.6 over the last five games.

"It's a challenge to come out and teams that are really good rebounding teams," said Hawks coach Larry Drew, whose team has outrebounded Indiana by 10 this season. "... We're going to have to be good tomorrow night."

The Hawks won 101-96 on March 6 to avoid a third consecutive loss at Indiana.

The Pacers, 19-3 at home, haven't lost to a visiting team since Dec. 7 against Denver.
