KEY GAME INFORMATION
HOUSTON: GUARDS: Houston has gutted its roster, and this is JEREMY LIN's team now. Coach Kevin McHale will use the same pick-and-roll offense he used with Goran Dragic, and Lin should do what he did in New York a year ago . . . KEVIN MARTIN is on the trade block. As long as he's in Houston, he'll be in and out of McHale's doghouse, especially seeing that he's not in the long-term plans . . . JEREMY LAMB should push Martin for minutes early. Lamb will have some defensive issues, but he's a cagey scorer who should mesh well with Lin . . . CARLOS DELFINO replaces Chase Budinger as the team's most reliable marksman from three-point range . . . TONEY DOUGLAS' defensive ability puts him in the running for a rotation spot . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON can give them 12 to 15 minutes a night . . . Rookie SCOTT MACHADO, an outstanding passer, will back up Lin . . . GARY FORBES will have trouble finding minutes. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS was a nice surprise a year ago. He's a fifth option offensively but does the hustle/energy thing well . . . 2011 first-rounder DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS is a skilled 7-footer who fits with Lin. Expect him to grab a starting job by midseason, but he can also play center when required . . . This might be the year PATRICK PATTERSON makes an impact. His game is limited, but he can rebound and score around the basket . . . ROYCE WHITE is a 270-pounder with point guard skills. He needs the ball in his hands though, which is why he's not a great fit with Lin in the starting lineup . . . TERRENCE JONES has a tweener skill set. At this point, he's better suited for the second unit . . . Speaking of 'tweeners, MARCUS MORRIS looks to be nowhere near contributing. CENTERS: OMER ASIK earned his reputation as a defensive stud in Chicago, and he'll get a little more offensive freedom in Houston. He is quite foul-prone though, and he'll be tested on the free-throw line early and often . . . His backup, GREG SMITH, has more fouls (17) than points (14) in his 69-minute NBA career.
WASHINGTON: GUARDS: JOHN WALL hasn't developed much diversity in his offensive game, but he's still really fast and an effective distributor. The improved supporting cast should help him reach the next level, assuming he feels no ill effects from the stress injury in his left knee that will keep him out until late November . . . BRADLEY BEAL is a great shooter, but he can also score off the dribble. Throw in his rebounding ability from the backcourt, and he should contribute in a number of ways as a rookie . . . JORDAN CRAWFORD is a pure scorer, but not an efficient one. He won't be able to hold off Beal for long, if at all . . . A.J. PRICE steps in as Wall's top backup. He'll play limited minutes with the second unit . . . SHELVIN MACK will be battling for a roster spot, most likely with underachieving swingman MARTELL WEBSTER. FORWARDS: TREVOR ARIZA should have no trouble stepping into the starting lineup. He'll at least have a chance to re-find his three-point shot getting drive-and-dish feeds from Wall . . . Nene^ will slide to the four with Emeka Okafor coming in. That means athletic, but raw, JAN VESELY will have to play with the second unit. He can really run the floor, but doesn't help much in the half-court game . . . TREVOR BOOKER is a very good screener on offense who holds his own defensively and on the boards. He still has a chance for a handful of starts if Nene^ or Okafor get hurt . . . CHRIS SINGLETON started a lot of games last year, but the defensive specialist will likely spend this season learning behind Ariza . . . CARTIER MARTIN never saw a shot he didn't like. CENTERS: NENE^ had some trouble with plantar fasciitis last year and playing in the Olympics didn't help. If healthy, he has a chance to be Washington's leading scorer . . . EMEKA OKAFOR will start alongside Nene^. He's the fifth-best option on offense, but holds his own defensively . . . KEVIN SERAPHIN has proven he can hold down a starting job. He'll come off the bench but should still have a significant role.

*Rockets-Wizards Preview* =========================

By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO STATS Writer

Houston (30-26) at Washington (15-37), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Houston Rockets are one of the highest-scoring teams in the NBA, and that's been particularly obvious over the past month.

The Rockets may have some new faces contributing to the offense as they try to continue their recent dominance of the Washington Wizards on Saturday night in the nation's capital.

Houston (31-26) averages 106.4 points, ranking behind only Oklahoma City's 106.7. The Rockets have been even better during the current 9-4 stretch, averaging 113.8 while shooting 50.0 percent overall and 41.1 percent from beyond the arc.

They flexed those scoring muscles against the Thunder on Wednesday, beating them 122-119 and following it up with a 106-96 victory at Brooklyn two days later. Houston hit 31 3s over those two games, six fewer than its total from the previous four contests.

"The past couple of weeks we've shown flashes, in my mind, of being a really, really, good team," said Jeremy Lin, who had nine points versus the Nets after getting 29 two days earlier.

It would seem the Rockets are at least in position for a three-game winning streak since they've won 13 of their last 15 meetings with the Wizards (16-37) and six of seven in Washington.

Houston took the latest matchup at home, winning 99-93 on Dec. 12 behind 31 points from James Harden.

The All-Star guard enters this matchup averaging 32.7 points on 57.0 percent shooting - 54.8 from 3-point range - over his past six games.

While Harden, among the league leaders with 26.4 points per game, will likely play a major role again, the Rockets may get a chance to introduce some new acquisitions.

They made a deal with Sacramento prior to Wednesday's trade deadline, but Thomas Robinson - the No. 5 pick in last year's draft - Francisco Garcia and Tyler Honeycutt weren't available Friday because Patrick Patterson, Toney Douglas and Cole Aldrich hadn't gotten their physicals with the Kings done in time.

Robinson is the most prominent addition, but he's averaging 4.8 points. The forward scored nine for Sacramento in a win at Washington on Jan. 28, when he was making his professional debut in his hometown. Garcia had 17 points in that game, his second-highest scoring effort of the season.

The Wizards are trying to win for the sixth time in eight tries after beating Denver 119-113 on Friday as six players scored in double figures.

Bradley Beal was one of them, finishing with 17 points and a season-high 12 rebounds while overcoming a hard fall on the court. That came a day after he spent 2 1/2 hours at the dentist to fix his two chipped front teeth - parts of which apparently became embedded in Cartier Martin's forehead.

"We were saying on the bench - he's having a rough rookie year," said Emeka Okafor, who had 17 points and 13 rebounds versus the Nuggets.

Beal, though, is doing just fine lately, averaging 20.0 points while sinking 9 of 19 from beyond the arc over the last four games. He led the way with 20 against Houston in December.

John Wall missed that game but has averaged 21.8 points over four career meetings with the Rockets, scoring a career-high 38 in the most recent matchup in Washington.

The Wizards also are expected to welcome a new addition in Jason Collins, acquired in a trade that sent Jordan Crawford to Boston on Wednesday.
