BROOKLYN: GUARDS: DERON WILLIAMS is healthy and got a much-improved supporting cast to work with. He could re-enter the NBA's best point guard discussion . . . JOE JOHNSON won't have the ballin his hands as much as he used to in Atlanta. It might give him a chance to concentrate on regaining his stroke as one of the NBA's best shooters . . . MARSHON BROOKS will look to settle in as a high-scoring sixth man. He'll be trade bait for most of the season . . . After a disastrous year in Chicago, C.J. WATSON will be asked to spell Williams for a few minutes a night . . . KEITH BOGANS is still kicking around as a second unit glue guy . . . TYSHAWN TAYLOR is an at-times out-of-control combo guard, but the rookie could threaten Watson's role at some point. FORWARDS: KRIS HUMPHRIES' contract was structured to make him easier to trade. He'll rebound and get his put-backs, and the Nets will likely showcase him a bit . . . GERALD WALLACE is slowing down, and now that he's signed his last big NBA contract he might not have much incentive to live up to his 'Crash' nickname. Brooklyn has no choice but to give him heavy minutes considering their investment . . . MIRZA TELETOVIC is a veteran stretch four. Consider him a penniless man's Channing Frye . . . TORNIKE SHENGELIA played himself into a roster spot this summer. He's a mediocre athlete, but a cagey scorer with a high basketball IQ . . . JOSH CHILDRESS and JERRY STACKHOUSE were added in September for depth . . . REGGIE EVANS will flop unconvincingly, punch opponents in the jewels and bring other 'tough guy' intangibles. CENTERS: BROOK LOPEZ had been remarkably durable before last year's foot injury, and he should be fully healed by the start of training camp. He's gifted offensively, but will continue to grab relatively few rebounds and generally get fried defensively. He's also a candidate to be traded midseason if another franchise can stomach his max contract . . . As insurance, former Wizards big man ANDRAY BLATCHE was brought in. He could be the team's best interior defender, able to play either the four or five spot.
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."

*Nets-Hawks Preview* ====================


Brooklyn (35-26) at Atlanta (34-26), 7:00 p.m. EDT

A record-setting performance from Deron Williams has the Brooklyn Nets gaining some confidence.

The timing may be ideal with the Atlanta Hawks sputtering.

Williams looks to build on one of the best shooting displays in NBA history Saturday night as the Nets try to stay hot by winning in Atlanta for the first time in more than four years.

Since sitting out two games with ankle tendinitis, Williams is averaging 23.8 points on 48.0 percent shooting - 53.0 from beyond the arc - over the last nine contests. That's an improvement from his season average of 17.8 points, his lowest production since managing 16.2 with Utah in 2006-07.

The point guard continued his impressive play Friday, setting an NBA record with nine 3s in the first half and finishing with a season-high 42 points as the Nets (36-26) coasted to a 95-78 win over Washington. Williams ended up with a team-record 11 3-pointers, one shy of the league mark shared by Kobe Bryant (2003) and Donyell Marshall (2005).

"Deron, he was hot like fish grease," forward Reggie Evans said. "He was hot, so he kind of kicked it off and we just kept it going throughout the game."

Williams wasn't close to being that effective at Atlanta on Jan. 16, going 5 for 18 from the floor - 2 for 9 from behind the arc - to finish with 12 points with nine assists in a 109-95 loss in the first game of a home-and-home set.

Brooklyn won 94-89 two days later behind Williams' 24 points.

Now, the Nets are trying to win in Atlanta for the first time since Nov. 15, 2008. They've dropped eight in a row there while surrendering an average of 109.4 points.

Joe Johnson should be eager for a better performance at Philips Arena after he managed 15 points in the January trip, shooting 4 for 15 while missing all four chances from long range in his first visit to Atlanta since being traded to Brooklyn last summer.

Johnson, who spent the past seven seasons with the Hawks (34-27), is trying to get back on track after matching his season low with six points against the Wizards.

While Brooklyn is going for a three-game winning streak, the Hawks are hoping to win for the 12th time in their last 15 games in this series after falling for the fourth time in five contests, 107-102 in overtime at Boston on Friday.

"I think the story of the game for us was turnovers down the stretch," Al Horford told the NBA's official website after Atlanta gave it away three times in OT. "I think that they just killed us. We can't turn the ball over. We have got to get a shot every time."

Horford had 22 points and 13 rebounds - he's averaged 23.6 points in his last 12 games - while Josh Smith had 32 points, nine assists and eight boards after averaging just 13.0 points in his first four games this month.

Smith has scored 23.8 points per game on 60.3 percent shooting over his last four home meetings with the Nets. However, he missed the most recent one while serving a one-game team suspension for detrimental conduct due to an incident at practice.

He had 12 points in the matchup in Brooklyn, while Horford sat out with a hamstring injury after putting up 17 points and grabbing 13 rebounds Jan. 16.

The Hawks are 18-5 when Horford scores at least 20 points and 15-20 when he scores 19 or fewer. He's also missed three games.
