KEY GAME INFORMATION
PHOENIX: GUARDS: With Steve Nash gone, GORAN DRAGIC takes over at the point. He was a monster as a starter in Houston late last year, and he's familiar with Phoenix's system from his time there as Nash's backup . . . SHANNON BROWN is one of the league's better sixth men and could end up seeing close to starter minutes this year. Once just a raw athlete, he's made major strides as a shooter and ball-handler . . . KENDALL MARSHALL was a bit of a product of an absurdly talented supporting cast in college at UNC. He's got work to do to become an NBA-caliber starter, but he'll be capable enough as a backup point guard as a rookie . . . SEBASTIAN TELFAIR still can't hit an open jump shot, but will factor into the backcourt rotation. FORWARDS: LUIS SCOLA steps in as the starting four. While he's in his 30's and an underwhelming athlete, he's crafty and relentless . . . JARED DUDLEY will continue to be their main catch-and-shoot threat on the wing. It might take a while to develop an on-court chemistry with Dragic . . . MICHAEL BEASLEY has a chance to grab a starting spot. He rarely has his head on straight, but he can score . . . CHANNING FRYE, the sharp-shooting 7-footer, will likely miss the 2012-13 season due to an enlarged heart, but this condition is expected to completely heal . . . WESLEY JOHNSON gets a fresh start. He needs to start knocking down shots to land a rotation spot . . . MARKIEFF MORRIS showed flashes as a rookie, but has to make better decisions on the offensive end. He'll be a key on the second unit . . . Well-traveled P.J. TUCKER earned himself a roster spot with an impressive Summer League. CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT had a great year-and-a-half alongside Steve Nash, and he'll have to prove he can create in the low post a little more. But he's a skilled big man who should pair nicely with Luis Scola as a scorer and passer in the post . . . Injury-riddled JERMAINE O'NEAL is still a strong low-post defender and shot-blocker.
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.

*Suns-Hornets Preview* ======================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Phoenix (17-32) at New Orleans (15-33), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Wins have been tough to come by for the Phoenix Suns all season, but they're starting to play a bit better away from home.

After beating one of the top teams in the Western Conference on the road, Phoenix seems to be visiting the struggling New Orleans Hornets at the right time.

The Suns will try to put together rare back-to-back wins Wednesday night when they visit the skidding Hornets and likely get their first look at Eric Gordon since nearly landing the talented guard over the summer.

Despite coming into Memphis on Tuesday with a conference-low four road victories, Phoenix (17-32) won for the third time in six games away from home by beating the Grizzlies 96-90.

Marcin Gortat had a team-high 20 points while Goran Dragic had 15 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter to key the Suns' 31-19 advantage in the final 12 minutes.

Phoenix had lost 17 of 22 overall after winning a season-best four straight games Dec. 12-19. The Suns have won back-to-back contests once since that streak, beating Sacramento and the Los Angeles Lakers Jan. 23-24.

They'll likely need another strong showing from their defense to do it again. While the Suns have lost eight in a row when allowing 100 points or more, they've won four straight when holding opponents under 100.

"We don't always shoot the ball well, but one thing we can control is how we defend, and that is something we really, really stress," said Suns interim coach Lindsey Hunter, who is now 4-4 since taking over for Alvin Gentry.

Dragic hasn't had trouble shooting in New Orleans. He's averaged 19.5 points and shot 7 for 12 from beyond the arc in his last two trips to New Orleans.

Those were both losses with Houston, but Dragic had 20 points and eight assists in the Suns' 111-108 overtime win against New Orleans on Nov. 23. One of those assists came on Markieff Morris' key 3-pointer in overtime, and he finished with a career-high 23 points as Phoenix rallied from a 19-point third-quarter deficit.

The Hornets (15-33) were without Anthony Davis and Gordon for that meeting, and Gordon has missed two of the last three games since he hasn't yet been cleared to play in back-to-backs as he recovers from knee surgery.

Gordon should play Wednesday, his first look at the team he hoped to wind up with over the summer. He agreed to a four-year, $58 million offer sheet with Phoenix, but New Orleans matched it despite Gordon saying he'd prefer it didn't - even after he missed all but nine games last season.

Though the Hornets are healthy for this meeting, their defense isn't. They've allowed 105.9 points per game over their last nine after Saturday's 115-86 loss at Minnesota.

"We've got to regroup, better ourselves and get back home and get a win and try to get out of this slump," guard Greivis Vasquez said.

Vazquez has particularly struggled lately, shooting 32.5 percent despite averaging 10.2 assists in his last six games. He had no problems against Dragic and the Suns in the first meeting, though, posting 25 points and 14 assists.

Neither did Ryan Anderson, who scored a career-high 34 points while hitting 8 of 13 3-pointers in that game. Anderson had averaged 19.6 points and shot 44.6 percent from long distance over his last seven games before being held to eight points at Minnesota.

Phoenix has won four straight in the series, including the last two in New Orleans by a combined 32 points.
