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.
DENVER: GUARDS: TY LAWSON has emerged as the closest thing to a No. 1 option on this team, and despite his size, he's proven capable of playing full-time minutes. He'll continue to post big numbers in an up-tempo system that suits him perfectly . . . ANDRE MILLER will both back up Lawson and share the court with him at times (though Andre Iguodala figures to play a lot of two this season). The steady veteran is one of the league's most underrated sixth men . . . It's a bit surprising that EVAN FOURNIER is making the jump to the NBA this year. His size and skill combo will be nice on the wing one day, but he's unlikely to contribute this year . . . JULYAN STONE will be out until January after offseason hip surgery, but he should be Lawson's main backup upon his return. FORWARDS: DANILO GALLINARI is their most complete offensive player. If healthy, he's capable of being a 20-PPG scorer . . . ANDRE IGUODALA should enjoy the much faster pace Denver plays at. He'll see full-time minutes between both wing spots . . . KENNETH FARIED isn't a skilled big, but he's a high-energy guy who can get his own points off offensive rebounds . . . WILSON CHANDLER could end up leading their second unit in minutes and points . . . COREY BREWER is a front office favorite. He'll stay in the rotation as a defensive presence/glue guy . . . JORDAN HAMILTON could break into the rotation. He's one-dimensional, but has the offensive skills . . . Denver will try to solve the ANTHONY RANDOLPH riddle. Don't expect it to happen this year. CENTERS: Denver is all-in on internet punchline JaVALE McGEE. They'll give the athletic 7-footer every chance to become the star they think he can be. Whether the flaky McGee can capitalize is questionable . . . TIMOFEY MOZGOV is one of the NBA's best screeners, but his touches will be limited . . . KOSTA KOUFOS has quietly developed into a usable rotation player, but he might be squeezed out of minutes.

*Clippers-Nuggets Preview* ==========================


Los Angeles (44-19) at Denver (40-22), 10:30 p.m. EDT

While the Denver Nuggets' home winning streak already is quite impressive, the quality of competition they've faced during the run makes it even more noteworthy.

It likely won't be easy adding the surging Los Angeles Clippers to that list.

Denver seeks a 12th straight home win Thursday night against a Los Angeles team that has won five straight road games.

The Nuggets (40-22), who are 26-3 at the Pepsi Center, have been solid no matter where they've played lately, winning six straight and 16 of their last 20 overall after beating Sacramento 120-113 on the road Tuesday.

Ty Lawson is averaging 23.8 points over his last 11 games after scoring 24, and Danilo Gallinari added 23 for Denver, which ranks third in the NBA at 105.7 points per game.

"Early in the season we lost some leads on the road in the fourth quarter, and we lost some tough games lately," said coach George Karl, whose team is averaging 112.0 points during its six-game streak. "But we're a young team and young teams will do that. We are maturing and finding our identity a little better."

The Nuggets' home winning streak began with an overtime victory against Oklahoma City on Jan. 20, and they also knocked off the Thunder 105-103 on Friday.

Denver, which hasn't won 12 straight at home since March 16-April 19, 2005, also has wins over Indiana, Houston, Milwaukee, Chicago, Boston and Atlanta during the streak - all clubs currently in playoff position.

It's getting solid efforts lately from multiple players, as Kenneth Faried finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds and Andre Miller added 16 points off the bench Tuesday.

"You never know who's going to grab the steering wheel and who's going to drive us home," Karl told the team's official website.

Lawson sat out with a strained left Achilles when the Clippers visited the Pepsi Center on Jan. 1, but Gallinari scored 17 points and Faried added 14 and 11 rebounds as the Nuggets won 92-78.

Another home victory over Los Angeles, which shot only 38.5 percent overall in that contest while going 5 of 29 from 3-point range and 13 of 29 from the free-throw line, may not come as easily this time.

The Pacific Division-leading Clippers (44-19) have won nine of their last 11 after Wednesday's 117-101 victory over Milwaukee, as Blake Griffin recorded his third career triple-double with 23 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 11 assists.

Jamal Crawford, who scored a game-high 22 points in the Clippers' 112-100 win over Denver on Christmas Day, netted a game-high 25 points off the bench Wednesday and is averaging 23.0 while shooting 59.3 percent over his last four.

He lauded Griffin's all-around effort.

"He's doing everything," Crawford said of Griffin, who has averaged just 12.3 points in his last three games against Denver. "He demands a lot of attention down (low), so he's getting double-teamed and kicking out to our shooters. He's making the right play all of the time."

While Griffin has struggled somewhat in this series, Karl isn't expecting anything but brilliance from Chris Paul, who is averaging 20.0 points and 10.0 assists in his last four contests.

"I think he's one of the guys that I think almost wills wins," Karl said. "Not only is he very talented and very skilled, but he has an approach and attitude to the game that beating him is offensive to him."

The Clippers have won six of the last eight meetings with the Nuggets.
