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.
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."

*Hornets-Hawks Preview* =======================

By JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

New Orleans (16-33) at Atlanta (27-21), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The frontline duo of Josh Smith and Al Horford continues to be one of the biggest reasons for the Atlanta Hawks' success - or at times, lack thereof - especially of late.

Both players will look to take advantage of an opponent that has struggled with interior defense recently Friday night against the visiting New Orleans Hornets.

New Orleans will try to end a four-game road losing streak and avenge its 95-86 home loss to Atlanta on New Year's Day. Smith and Horford combined to score 43 points on 21-of-37 shooting in that game as the Hornets allowed 50 points in the paint.

The Hawks (27-21) have split their last 10 games, but they got 22 points and a season-high 13 assists from Jeff Teague in a 103-92 home win against Memphis on Wednesday.

Smith and Horford combined for 36 points and each posted 11 rebounds.

"We were clicking on all cylinders," Teague said. "Al was getting out and running, getting rebounds. Josh was getting out and leading the breaks, and guys were making shots."

Horford is averaging 22.8 points and shooting 58.7 percent over the last four Hawks victories he's played in, while Smith is putting up 21.5 points and 12.3 rebounds per game in Atlanta's last four wins.

Overall in Atlanta victories this season, the duo is shooting 52.3 percent, compared to a 44.6 percent mark in losses.

The Hornets (16-33) had lost six of seven while allowing an average of 50.0 points in the paint before a 93-84 home victory against Phoenix on Wednesday.

New Orleans, which ranks in the league's bottom third in allowing opponents to average 43.5 points in the paint, still gave up 42 to the Suns. But it was a sharp contrast from the 62 and 58 yielded to Denver and Minnesota in the previous two games.

The effort snapped a four-game slide after coach Monty Williams ran the team through what he dubbed "training-camp style" practices on Monday and Tuesday.

"One of the primary focuses of the two practices on Monday and Tuesday was just our aggressiveness," said Robin Lopez, who has shot 70 percent or better in four of his last five games. "We want to make sure we went out there and beat up on each other, and it was nice to see some carry-over."

Greivis Vasquez had 19 points on 8-of-9 shooting while adding 12 assists with no turnovers Wednesday. He trails only injured point guards Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul with 9.4 assists per game.

He's also averaging 15.4 points during the Hornets' improved 11-11 stretch since Christmas.

New Orleans' Ryan Anderson scored 23 points in the first meeting with Atlanta, but the Hawks shot 49.4 percent from the field. Eric Gordon struggled in his second game back from injury, hitting 5 of 17 shots and committing four turnovers.

Gordon, averaging 16.4 points and helping the Hornets go 9-7 when he's active, was 3 of 14 from the field Wednesday after missing two of the previous three games with lingering knee problems.

"I am still not 100 percent," Gordon said. "I am battling through it."

Atlanta's Kyle Korver tied Mookie Blaylock's franchise record for consecutive games with a 3-pointer at 42 on Wednesday and can surpass the mark Friday.
