UTAH: GUARDS: MO WILLIAMS will get a crack at running the point in Utah. He's more of a combo guard, but he'll do fine in an offense that revolves around the bigs . . . RANDY FOYE is a gunning combo guard who will step in as Utah's sixth man . . . ALEC BURKS started to come on late last year, making Raja Bell expendable. He'll come off the bench, but if he can start knocking down perimeter shots, he's in for a much bigger role . . . Yeah, that's right, EARL WATSON and JAMAAL TINSLEY are both still around. And they're both riding pine in Salt Lake . . . KEVIN MURPHY is a cagey scorer from tiny Tennessee Tech (no word on his Golden Tee skills). FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was Utah's best all-around player last season and will be playing for a new contract. He should be able to keep his minutes despite Utah's young bigs behind him . . . GORDON HAYWARD will probably slide to the two. He has a chance for a breakout year after a strong finish to 2011-12 . . . MARVIN WILLIAMS gets a fresh start in Utah after a disappointing run in Atlanta. He figures to have a similar complementary role with the Jazz . . . DERRICK FAVORS is a long-term solution in the frontcourt. His offensive game is coming on, and he's already a far better defender than Al Jefferson . . . Slam dunk champion JEREMY EVANS and DeMARRE CARROLL will both provide energy off the bench. CENTERS: Like Millsap, AL JEFFERSON will hit free agency after the season. He's an incredibly limited player, a great scorer in the low post, but incapable of any other contributions and a huge liability on defense . . . ENES KANTER is still a few years away from a starting job. He has some rough edges to his game, but really had no problem adjusting to the physicality of the NBA.
LA CLIPPERS: GUARDS: CHRIS PAUL was every bit an MVP-caliber player in his first year in L.A. They should monitor his minutes late in the regular season to keep him fresh for the playoffs. . . His Achilles is on schedule to be healed by December, and CHAUNCEY BILLUPS will start once he's healthy. He's likely to lose athleticism, and his leash could be short if he shoots as poorly as he did last year . . . JAMAL CRAWFORD steps in to lead the second unit. We'll see how quickly his inefficient, shoot-first ways grow stale . . . ERIC BLEDSOE was a stud in the playoffs. He can't play extended minutes alongside Paul, but coach Vinny Del Negro knows he has to get Bledsoe on the floor . . . WILLIE GREEN provides capable depth, but he's on the outside looking in at the rotation. FORWARDS: BLAKE GRIFFIN's knee injury likely isn't serious enough to linger into the season. He's starting to develop some post moves to go along with his dunks . . . CARON BUTLER played hurt for most of last year, but still did enough to nail down a starting job for this season . . . LAMAR ODOM moped his way back to L.A. Don't be surprised if he has a strong bounce-back year, especially considering he'll be the Clippers' best defensive big . . . GRANT HILL could see some starts, but more likely the 40-year-old is pegged for limited minutes . . . MATT BARNES will replace Hill once he injures himself again . . . RONNY TURIAF will provide some of the toughness they lost when Reggie Evans left . . . TREY THOMPKINS will continue to languish on the bench, especially after sitting out the preseason with a knee injury. CENTERS: He can block shots and rebound, but at this point DeANDRE JORDAN is just too much of a defensive liability in space to play 30-plus minutes. That's why the Clippers will often pair Lamar Odom with Blake Griffin in the frontcourt . . . RYAN HOLLINS can also defend the basket and has six fouls to give.

*Jazz-Clippers Preview* =======================


Utah (31-24) at Los Angeles (39-18), 10:30 p.m. EDT

After rolling into the All-Star break, the Los Angeles Clippers struggled mightily in their first contest after it.

Saturday night's home game against Utah not only provides a chance to bounce back, but also an opportunity for their first season sweep over the Jazz in 34 years.

The Clippers went into the break with four straight wins by an average of 16.2 points while shooting 52.7 percent from the floor. Then they were completely dismantled on both ends of the floor in a 116-90 home loss to San Antonio on Thursday, their largest margin of defeat this season.

Not surprisingly, it was also one of the worst defensive performances of the season for Los Angeles (39-18), which let the Spurs shoot 58.9 percent.

"It's very humbling, but it happens," said Blake Griffin, who was 7 of 17 after shooting 64.7 percent in his previous four games. "We've got to have a good practice (Friday), go over our mistakes and bounce back against Utah on Saturday."

Los Angeles won the first two meetings with the Jazz on the road by a combined three points, then took a 107-96 home win on Dec. 30, despite seven points from Griffin, who was double-teamed and picked up five fouls. The Clippers haven't swept the season series since 1978-79.

Chris Paul had played particularly well during the four-game run, averaging 20.0 points on 60.0 percent shooting along with 10.5 assists and 3.5 steals. But he struggled in his first contest since winning All-Star Game MVP, finishing with four points on 1-for-6 shooting with three assists and three turnovers.

The Jazz (31-24) have won three in a row and 12 of 17 but unexpectedly maintained the status quo as Thursday's trade deadline passed.

Both Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, with contracts set to expire and Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors waiting behind them, were pegged as likely trade candidates. But general manager Dennis Lindsey said no offers that Utah received made it a better team.

The Jazz also kept another expiring contract in Mo Williams, who has been out since late December with a right thumb injury but returned to practice on Monday.

"When they say you should make a trade is probably when you shouldn't," said Lindsey, in his first season as Utah's general manager. "We're not here to win a press conference."

Despite not making a deal, Utah's lineup had a new look Tuesday as Gordon Hayward returned after missing 10 games with a sprained right shoulder. He had 17 points in 25 minutes off the bench in a 115-101 home victory over Golden State.

Hayward took an early shot to the same shoulder on a drive to the basket, but was OK.

"He is who he is," coach Tyrone Corbin said of Hayward, Utah's third-leading scorer at 13.6 per game. "He was excited to be back. ... He looked great. His pace was good. I thought he came in looking for his shot, he didn't favor his shoulder when he went into the lane."

Jefferson scored 24 and is averaging 22.3 points in his last three games - 4.6 better than his team-leading average. He is averaging 22.7 points and 2.7 blocked shots in the three games versus the Clippers.
