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.
OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK can do whatever he wants inside the arc and will continue to be a shoot-first point guard . . . JAMES HARDEN will likely keep coming off the bench, but he'll also keep playing starter's minutes . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA is OKC's best perimeter defender. But his role won't become more prominent until the postseason . . . ERIC MAYNOR should be just about all the way back from his torn ACL. When healthy, he's one of the league's best backup point guards . . . DAEQUAN COOK will see limited minutes as a three-point specialist . . . REGGIE JACKSON's role will shrink to near nothing if Maynor is healthy. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT continues to do it all, and has done nothing but steadily improve each season . . . SERGE IBAKA is obviously an elite shot-blocker, but he continues to get lost in space. He's made some strides as a pick-and-roll defender, but that weakness is why he doesn't play 30 minutes per night . . . NICK COLLISON will continue to steal a lot of Ibaka's minutes because he defends the pick-and-roll better, and because he draws so many charges, he's almost as good in help situations . . . PERRY JONES III is an incredible athlete, but needs a year or two to learn the game . . . LAZAR HAYWARD is back as a 12th man. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS will continue to start, but is a part-time player. The Thunder are often better with a small lineup. While Perkins is a bruiser he is too easy to exploit as a defender in space . . . COLE ALDRICH could be ready for a slightly bigger role off the bench . . . HASHEEM THABEET is a reclamation project. There's a sliver of long-term hope, but he won't help this year.

*Hornets-Thunder Preview* =========================

By CHRIS ALTRUDA STATS Editor

New Orleans (20-38) at Oklahoma City (41-15), 8:00 p.m. EDT

With a comfortable lead atop the Northwest Division as they bid to repeat as Western Conference champions, the Oklahoma City Thunder aren't concerned about making the playoffs.

The immediate challenge is working Derek Fisher back into their rotation ahead of the postseason as they seek a second consecutive season sweep of the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night.

It is the second straight season the Thunder (41-15) will lean on Fisher's veteran savvy as he seeks a sixth title. The 38-year-old point guard won five with the Los Angeles Lakers but came up short last spring when Oklahoma City lost to Miami in the NBA finals.

"I knew that I still wanted to play the game. I knew I still had the love, the work ethic, the passion," said Fisher, who played nine games with Dallas before asking for his release due to a knee injury. "The injury was a setback. ... But as I was leaving Dallas, I understood the risks that that could possibly be my last game or my last opportunity."

Coach Scott Brooks doesn't have a set role for Fisher, who last postseason played mainly on the second unit with current Rocket James Harden, but is confident his team will adjust accordingly like it did in its run to the finals.

"Minutes are going to be had, minutes are going to be probably taken away from many guys, and not just because of Derek Fisher. Just as the season goes on, sometimes the rotations become smaller," Brooks said. "In order to have a good team, you have to have guys that are committed to the team, and sometimes those things happen."

After a season-worst three-game losing streak, Oklahoma City has regrouped to win back-to-back games. The Thunder, who had allowed an average of 113.0 points their previous four games before Sunday night, stifled the Bulls 102-72 and held Chicago to 29.1 percent shooting, a season best defensively.

"We did a lot of good things, but at the same time, it's the NBA. Maybe they had a night off or something like this," Thabo Sefolosha said. "Credit to the way we prepared this game mentally, the way we came out, but at the same time, we can't see ourselves as too good.

"We did a lot of good things but we've got to keep it up."

Oklahoma City has won seven straight over New Orleans since a 91-89 loss on Jan. 24, 2011, and Kevin Durant has averaged 30.0 in that stretch while shooting an eye-popping 62.8 percent. He had 35 in a 92-88 home victory on Dec. 12 in the most recent meeting.

New Orleans (20-38) has dropped four of five following its 101-97 home loss to Brooklyn on Tuesday night, failing to overcome a poor first quarter and again struggling on the perimeter defensively. The Hornets allowed the Nets to make 12 of 20 from 3-point range, and opponents have made 42 of 86 (48.8 percent) from beyond the arc during this five-game stretch.

The Thunder have won 17 straight at home against Western opponents, scoring at least 106 points in each of the last 11 and averaging 114.5 in that span. They also have shot 44.5 percent from 3-point range and 50.3 percent overall in those 11 wins.

New Orleans has allowed Oklahoma City to shoot 43.3 percent (26 for 60) from 3-point range this season.

Kevin Martin, who has hit 9 of 20 from long distance in those games, has averaged 21.0 points in the season series.
